The new Archbishop of Sydney – a man with a big appetite for justice – see letter to St Vincent’s from 2005.
Not only did he call on the police to intervene in liturgical disturbances at St Vincent’s, but his vile comments towards the Foster family, destroyed by clerical abuse, makes one question his suitability to lead the Sydney diocese. (Back in July 2008, he enraged sex abuse victims and their supporters when he stated that people were “dwelling crankily on old wounds” – The Age.)
Have the intervening years had any mellowing effect?
