good riddance

Australian Cardinal George Pell has been appointed to one of the most Vatican's senior roles, Prefect for the Economy of the Holy See.

He will be responsible for management and reform of the Vatican's sprawling administration and finances, reporting directly to the Pope.

One of his first tasks will be cleaning up the mess exposed by the 'Vatileaks' scandal, in which private letters to Pope Benedict leaked by his personal butler revealed infighting and allegations of corruption among a territorial and rebellious bureaucracy.

For those who don't know Pell and his conservative antics, there are plenty of articles about him on this site...

 

an unscientific creationist...

Cardinal Pell has been somewhat of a "sore" on the Australian religious landscape for quite a while... I know some devoted religious geezers (nuns, priests) who have defied him many times on many issues from global warming to Aboriginal issues — and on solving the blight of pedophila by some priests in the Catholic Church... Cardinal Pell is an arch-conservative, a friend of rat-bag Tony Abbott, who to some extend has the same views on religion/politics and global warming scepticism. Have a nice trip.
