Pope demotes two cardinals over sexual abuse scandals
Australia's George Pell and Chile's Francisco Javier Errazuriz will no longer sit on the Council of Cardinals, set up by the pope as an international advice body.

The pair were absent from the last meeting of the group in September.

A spokesperson said the Pope wrote to them both in October to thank them.

Cardinal Pell, who remains the Vatican treasurer, faces trial on sexual abuse charges in Australia - accusations the cardinal strenuously denies.

His Chilean colleague, Francisco Javier Errazuriz, faces accusations that he covered up alleged child abuse while serving as Archbishop of Santiago, claims he also denies.

Nothing says action like waiting until Pell was found guilty by a secular court and then dropping him from your inner council a day later.

Oh, now you're getting serious about this, Frank?

You know it's hard times when tuttle is right. That was even hard to type. :)

Surprised we haven't seen Onyx yet. He could tell us what happened in the Star Chamber. That man was tried in secret.


Also, unrelated. Decided to peruse America, having never read a Jesuit publication before. Simcha Fisher is effing annoying.
