A chapter in the book Miscellaneous Poems

Not my house

by CD Richards

The ultimate shame:

"House of God", a breeding ground

for Cardinal sins.

5-7-5 Poetry contest entry


It was revealed today that the Vatican finance minister, Cardinal George Pell, has been convicted on five charges related to the sexual abuse of children, including sexual penetration.

Equally as bad as the widespread abuse of innocents by clergy is the constant denial and cover up, by the Catholic Church in particular. Is it any wonder people are leaving organised religion in droves? These are the people who stand in the pulpits of their tax-free citadels and decry the apostasy of society, demanding repentance from those whose "sins", if any, pale into insignificance beside their own.

Thanks for reading.
