The scandal comes after the private school copped backlash after a group of boys were caught on video singing a sexually derogatory chat on a tram last year. Premier Daniel Andrews told reporters today parents had a right to be "very angry" over the disturbing saga.

Mandatory reporting laws for religious institutions come into effectLaws requiring clergy to report child abuse to authorities — even if heard in the confession box — will come into effect on Monday, ending the 'special treatment' for Victoria's religious institutions. As if the Catholic Church will snitch on its own. Unless. It’ll make no difference. The head of the Melbourne Catholics - whose cousin is a convicted pedo and doesn’t believe Pell is guilty - has said on radio he will defy the law. I am sick of institutional Right Wing Conservative Child Rape. When will these people stop creating child rape cabals? Pell then goes on TV pushing his disgusting right wing views on a democracy.

The secret $100 billion fund amassed by Mormon churchIt was a secret so tightly guarded by the Mormon church that only an elite circle knew about it. 9News Bit behind as usual.....

When churches argue for tax-free status because of the charity work they do - the reality that the chatholic church, Anglican, Mormon, Scientology, etc all amass great tax free wealth with minimal charity (most charity is at the local level) - make it hard to support them.
