I don’t know if archbishops can be sacked. But surely the Catholic Archbishop of Perth should be, following revelations he lied about complaints made about a Catholic sect.
Hickey initially said he had not received complaints about sexual misconduct in the sect. Today, it transpires he was personally presented a report in 2000 about the sect.
In essence, he lied. An Archbishop lied.
At the end of the day, it was left to a Church spokesperson to handle the flak.
