So here's a question. If Cardinal Pell is right and the Catholic Church isn't accountable for their priests' actions because it is just like a trucking company, wouldn't the government paying to train priests and school chaplains be the equivalent of monopolistic, anti-competitive government-funded sponsorship?
And if it is like a trucking company, shouldn't it be paying tax?

“When government makes opportunities for any of the citizens, it makes them for all the citizens. We are all diminished as citizens when any of us are poor. Poverty is a national waste as well as individual waste. We are all diminished when any of us are denied proper education. The nation is the poorer – a poorer economy, a poorer civilisation, because of this human and national waste.” Gough Whitlam
