Comic versus Cardinal: Come Home to the Child Sex Abuse Hearing

From my latest post for @globalvoices: Oz Comedian's Song Challenges Cardinal to ‘Come Home’ for Child Sex Abuse Hearing

The lyrics are deliberately offensive, as is typical of Minchin's in-your-face comedic style.
He calls Pell a “coward”, “scum” and a “pompous buffoon”. In a very provocative red rag finish, he goads the Cardinal to “come home and frickin’ sue me”.
Cardinal Pell has since offered to “meet with and listen to victims and express his ongoing support”.
