Graeme Anderson started this petition to Clan

According to Catholic theology , I was taught as a child and altar boy, there are two types of sin:

(i) ‘Venial sins’ that are forgivable.

(ii) ‘Cardinal sins’ that are so grave as to be unforgivable, resulting in damnation.

In recent years the exposure of systemic and long term criminal acts of paedophilia and cover ups by the senior officials of the Catholic church in Australia should be viewed as the most grave ‘Cardinal sin’.

Please see supporting documentation below.

The recent petition to ‘Strip Cardinal George Pell of his Order of Australia’ has gained 107,729 supporters to date but does not go far enough.

I call on practising and lapsed Catholics, associates and people of good conscience to boycott the Catholic church, its schools and institutions. Please sign the petition. 

Please note: I have no intention to deliver this petition to an authority but only hope that supporters will have the resolution necessary to implement their decision.
