The homily of the three wise men and the Royal Commission

And behold, a star shone in the East and it shone upon a manger which was called the Royal Commission into Child Abuse. Many rejoiced and gave thanks. And three wise men, Pell, Hart and Callaghan saw the star and journeyed towards it. (Actually one of them couldn’t be bothered journeying and appeared by video link). They did not bring gifts of gold frankincense and myrrh but rather evasions, legalisms and weasel words. And when they laid the gifts in the manger, even the animals turned it faces from them.
