George Pell: Australian cardinal of the Catholic Church and convicted child sex offender
George Pell is an Australian cardinal of the Catholic Church and convicted child sex offender. He served as the inaugural prefect of the Secretariat for the Economy between 2014 and 2019, and was a member of the Council of Cardinal Advisers between 2013 and 2018. Ordained in 1966 and created a cardinal in 2003, Pell has previously served as the eighth archbishop of Sydney (2001–2014), the seventh archbishop of Melbourne (1996–2001) and an auxiliary bishop of Melbourne (1987–1996). He has also been an author, columnist and public speaker. Since 1996 Pell has maintained a high public profile on a wide range of issues, while retaining a strict adherence to Catholic orthodoxy. His views on the environment, and global warming in particular, are inconsistent with scientific consensus.
