Australian cardinal 'uneasy,' but will not condemn gambling
Catholic World News - November 11, 2010
Cardinal George Pell of Sydney, Australia questioned the spectacular salaries of corporate executives, but refused to condemn involvement in gambling or arms trade, in a discussion of business ethics.
The cardinal said that he is “a bit uneasy” with gambling, but would not condemn recreational betting. Regarding arms manufacturers, he said that under some circumstances the production and sale of weapons is not only allowable but morally proper. His answers to questions on these subjects evidently annoyed a Sydney Morning Herald reporter, who opened a story on the cardinal’s comments by claiming that the prelate had advocated gambling, smoking, and arms trafficking.
