    So what does that entail ? I'm not up to scratch on the terminology !! Will they over ride the church and investigate properly ?

    Yep, it's pretty huge! I'm far from an expert so someone else can probably explain it better. This article pretty much explains it all http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/nat...-1226515291821

    Default It's time for the church to stop helping these criminals

    Way to go Gillard!

    A royal commission can compel people to testify, they can get charged for not cooperating.

    Fantastic, and it goes beyond the church - "It must include all organisations, government and non-government, where there is evidence of sexual abuse"

    Yes it's going to be huge and could take years. The one in Ireland went for a decade or so I think.

    That's great news, finally the web will be unravelled and victims will get a voice. This is going to tear apart the catholic church.

    But isn't the response by the Catholic Church conference of bishops so typical:

    "Talk of systemic problems of sexual abuse in the Catholic Church is ill-founded and inconsistent with the facts."

    Gah they are so predictable. Instead of saying let's co-operate and get to the bottom of this, or let's co-operate and clear the church, no it's all about how it's not true.

    I would so love to believe this will result in real change, but sadly it feels like the process will be so frustrated before it starts.

    Yes....

    I have no idea how it all works - there's going to be a federal investigation/audit of the church but the still need the church to co-operate/tell the truth.

    I suppose what makes me do happy about this is that it sends a very strong message that abuse will not be tolerated and abusers can no longer be protected. No matter how powerful an institution, they are not above it all.

    Like a pp said, their constant denial of the problem has probably done more to tarnish their reputation than the claims themselves.

    Anyway it will be interesting to see how it progresses.
