Mr. Collins against Pell again...

You might recall the "defenders of orthodoxy's" submission to Rome complaining about His Emminence George Cardinal Pell earlier this year?

Well Mr. Paul Collins is at it again with an opinion piece in the budget edition of The Australian today.

Gotta love Collins. He got such whacky comments as this:
CATHOLICS who know how the church is organised in Australia are driven mad by the media presumption that George Pell, the Archbishop of Sydney, is the official spokesman for Australian Catholicism. He's not. If it's anyone, it's the president of the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference. Pell represents no one but himself and the archdiocese of Sydney.

Excuse me Mr. Collins (yes Mr.), George Pell is not only Archbishop of Sydney but a Prince of the Church and along with the Papal Nuncio, the Vatican's man in Australia!

Just a note in case you didn't realse how the church is organised from the Vatican.

More irritating is that the media are inclined to portray Mr Collins as the spokesman for Australian Catholics!

No Mr Collins is the Church spokesman (or atleast the ABC think so).
