The Australian Catholic Bishop's conference, however, would like to remind us that "the result today does not change the Church's unwavering commitment to child safety and to a just and compassionate response to survivors and victims of child sexual abuse."
Apparently the Australian bishops are fine with the Vatican's abandonment of obviously-falsely accused shepherds, and would like to pretend that Pell is still perhaps a threat; much like some folks would still like to call the coronavirus the worst thing since the Black Plague.
Cardinal Pell's first public statement since his imprisonment is making the rounds on social media:

Welcome back, Cardinal Pell. God bless you.
