The MacGregor case appears to be far from an isolated incident.
Under cross-examination, the Victorian education department’s current deputy secretary David Howes said there appeared to be a historic practice of district inspectors shifting known child predators to other schools.

If only they’d been free to marry. Multiply Victoria by six and we’re talking dozens, if not hundreds, of government-employed, unionised molesters and enablers. But the narratively rigged McClelland RC didn’t investigate any of them. Not one. Its applause-driven Get Pell campaign would have been ruined had its hearings been swamped with public servants. The meta-purpose of the Gillard circus was to protect the myth that secular humanists and the state are morally superior to Christians and the Church. They never were and they never will be. I have only two questions: will Victoria Police arrest still living “people in authority” and – if not – why not?
