Australia: Lies and corruption…

June 26, 2013

.. as the Catholic Church goes about its daily business.

One of the Australian Catholic Church’s most senior figures, Father Brian Lucas, confessed in an internal church document that he knew the disgraced paedophile priest Father Denis McAlinden had been “interfering with children” but he had done nothing about it…

In 1993 Father Lucas had known of McAlinden’s abuse of a girl aged under 10, seperate evidence tendered to the inquiry alleges. That evidence also states that two years later McAlinden was defrocked in secret.

On Tuesday afternoon the inquiry heard that McCarthy gave the documents to a NSW detective, Shaun McCleod, in April 2010.

“The material that the police had obviously shows on the face of it an intention to alert McAlinden … if that isn’t trying to protect a paedophile, I don’t know what is,” McCarthy’s barrister, Winston Terracini, SC, suggested to her….

 Father Lucas is now general secretary of the Australian Catholic Bishops’ Conference.


Which is good, because it means he knows exactly who to cover up for.
