Cardinal George Pell needs to be removed from the priesthood after the full details of the Royal Commission into Institutional Child Abuse findings were finally released, acknowledging he knew of child abuse in the Ballarat diocese. Pell allowed Gerald Ridsdale and others to continue to abuse children in their care for decades by simply moving them around to continue abusing 

I was a victim of Ridsdale over a period of years, living in the presbytery in Mortlake where he abused nearly every Catholic boy in the town, as well as number of young girls. 

George Pell accompanied Ridsdale to court in the ’90s as a character reference. He claimed he did not know why he was going to court that day.

I ask Pell be dismissed from the clerical state and defrocked, or in the very least resign immediately. 

Pell attended consulters meetings in Ballarat Diocese were Ridsdale’s and other child abuse offending was discussed in Rome Pell quoted “ it was not of interest to me “ 

Please, help me get Pell removed from the protection of the Catholic Church in Australia and Rome. 

The Church needs to face survivors and offer fair compensation, not the dismal offers you have made in the past 

The Pope needs to set an example, showing child abuse and the cover-up of child abuse is not acceptable and will be dealt with by the law of the land, not your cannon law! 

Please, sign and share my petition and stand with survivors of child sexual abuse.
