From a dying church came words of comfort for a self proclaimed born again Christian Terrorist Anders Breivik of
“In my own reading of the Koran, I began to note down invocations to violence. There are so many of them, however, that I abandoned this exercise after 50 or 60 or 70 pages.” Archbishop George Pell, Sydney
There are literally dozens and dozens of blogs and news sites prior to last week’s human tragedy that quote Cardinal Pell’s anti-Islamic words as the basis of articles reinforcing the worldwide corporate political campaign feeding the growing Islamophobia of this dying western culture.
Pell, an arch conservative in the RC church, was until recently in line to be in charge of all the RC bishops worldwide to clean up corruption. Whispers of Pell’s own brush with sex abuse charges from 1961 are discrediting him behind

In any case, I think, George might be a very misunderstood and unappreciated cleric doing his duty to God and himself as he sees fits.
I hereby award George Pell, Archbishop of Sydney Australia, the first annual
Australian Sheep-Shagger Award (2011)
for services performed in the name of humanity and in spite of humanity’s sake for his words of encouragement to all the confused Breiviks of this world.

Thanks – but really no thanks dude!
Have a nice day George and a well earned retirement to obscurity.
Love. Peace. Brotherhood. (and all that other Islamic jazz)
