Catholic League president Bill Donohue explains why Cardinal George Pell will not be able to secure a fair trial in October:
If it weren’t for Cardinal George Pell, it would not matter a whole lot to the Catholic League if a free nation like Australia decided to emulate the totalitarian regime in North Korea.

Judging from recent events, it seems near impossible for him to get a fair trial.
Queensland, Australia’s second largest state, declared war on Christian children last week: they have been told to stop talking about Jesus in the school yard.
