Please accept my full respect, good Sir.

Loved the song and you skewered the "pompous buffoon" quite properly (if not a little too politely). I found your detractors to be obtuse, with their "what about" arguments. They concluded somehow that your subject matter ignored all the other wrongs being committed by other theists around the world, which of course it does, but so what? One song at a time, eh? When are you touring Canada? Love to see you in Vancouver at the Fringe Festival in September.

Thanks for your bold voice, smashing political correctness, flooding the air around you with reason, discernment, and (unfortunately ugly) facts! (Like, how is it not par for the course?!) Your assaults on fanaticism ("The Fence"), the good book and the pope are truly commendable. Your leverage of controversy giving you audience beyond merely preaching to the converted (they're angry, they hate you, they're listening, and it just might get them thinking).. great tactic, and very brave. As for your treatment of Pell, I'm right behind you: you very clearly have not accused him of anything other than the unambiguous evasiveness he's exhibiting. To all critics on the matter: consider the gravity of the crimes hidden by the catholic church, then simply get some perspective; this is a global religious movement, spouting it's moral superiority and authority on the one hand, whilst universally covering up endemic child rape on the other.. it's unashamedly evil (and I ain't no dualist!) Anyhow, thanks Tim, keep up the good work. Perhaps it's time to give Islaam a bit of a serve, although I totally understand why you might fear to, given you seem to really like living.. Erm, yeah, I'm stuck on that one... super-pluralism and the tolerance of everything, for all intents and purposes including intolerance, moral ambiguity... Is liberalism just a necessary step in cultural evolution, a process that in no way intended to take place, and so we're just making it up as we go along, but most of us won't admit it, so we hence can't exercise some cohesion and together, proactively, seek to make it up armed with solidarity and rationality?! (Ooh my mum would condemn me for that last comma-count!) Umm, look, I guess I needed this rant, so thanks, I'm done, I hope you read it, and chuckle. With love and empathy Tristan Rentz Sydney

Trump needs a proper skewering, er, I mean campaign song.

Being an atheist I have no time for religion but Pell has yet to be charged with any crime. Indeed he was exonerated in 2002 of allegations of abuse. Once he is found of knowing about the abuse then you can belittle him by calling him names. I just find it ironic that you call Pell a coward when you yourself are one. My advice is come a join me on my next stint in Riyadh and see how young girls and woman are treated. Write a song then. Oh, that’s right; the great unwashed like you will pick on soft targets like the Catholic Church. Sure, the Catholics have money, but hey look if you write a song about the Catholics at least you won’t be jailed or killed. Seeing as you’re from Britain I look forward to a couple of ditties about the victims of Rotherham and Rochdale. Even better write a song for the Yazidi sex slaves.

Excellent song Tim! Subtle yet to the point. Thank you from the U.S., we need as much high quality humor as we can get here. Cheers.

Philip Nakashima on Thursday, 18 February 2016

BRAVO!! BRAVO!! BRAVO!! Your song Come Home (Cardinal Pell) is on repeat on my player. It is not only the cleverest and most well articulated song I've heard in a long time, it's also very brave. Huge respect for committing your thoughts to the airwaves in a truly fantastic and catchy song. It's brave of you and furthermore, generous that you are donating the proceeds! BRAVO!!

Laurie Kerr on Thursday, 18 February 2016

TIM! Come to Canada! We need you!!! Calgary or Edmonton! I'm there!!!!!

Paul on Thursday, 18 February 2016

Tim, in "Come Home" you have expressed in song what so many lapsed Catholics feel inside: a deep resentment for the heartless institution that hid crimes against children for so long. Unfortunately for Mr Pell he represents all that is wrong with this goliath institution of wealth and hypocrisy. As you may have guessed, I was raised a Catholic, a good altar boy, honoured the Sabbath and dare not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain! Luckily, I escaped any sexual abuse. What did hurt this sensitive shy lad was the physical abuse, torture and humiliation of Marist Brothers, Sisters of Mercy and so called "lay teachers". Canes, straps, rulers, rough hands, closed fists.... Thank you Tim. Me and countless other former Good Catholic Boys are behind you!

Julie on Thursday, 18 February 2016

Tim, you are a deadset legend. I had no idea who you were until today and yet it turns out I know a lot of your work. Brilliant song and you know we'll all chip in for the legal fees if you need them! Your words are representing so many of us. Thank you.

Jen Soutter on Thursday, 18 February 2016

Thank you for "Come Home" (Cardinal Pell) (brilliant follow up to The Pope Song). I love your passionate fury about this very important issue. You exploded this issue back to the front page (instead of the usual tripe we get these days about AFL trades) with your talent. As a former student of a school in Doveton with a parade of 4 consecutive paedophile priests, I very much appreciated your song - you perfectly reflect my anger towards the Catholic Church and Pell himself. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Steve on Thursday, 18 February 2016

Brilliant song Tim. I don't know whether the film Spotlight has reached Australia yet, but if it has I would urge all those supporters of Cardinal Pell to go and watch it. I know truth is painful but it is still better than lies, deceit and abuse. Come on people - let's stop blindly believing that all people in power are righteous.

David Rosato on Thursday, 18 February 2016

You bloody ripper that is the best song I have heard in years, you guys deserve a bloody medal or something. Thanks for having the balls to do something for the victims, I am sure if Pell goes after you he will have to get past us first.We will support you all the way.Thanks from all not just the victims but anyone that just wants justice. David

You would think that media exposure of the Church abuses would compel them to make real changes? It is a worldwide problem-year after year they hope it will blow over. I was living in Boston when Cardinal Law's house of cards came down. Yet the church continued to threaten and bash the survivors brave enough to come forward. Please stay safe Tim--I don't trust these people. I will continue to support any momentum behind this campaign. A short news cycle and wavering attention spans are what they are hoping for.

John on Thursday, 18 February 2016

Hi Tim, what a fantastic song ("Come Home"). Well done. I just love the irreverence and directness of Aussies. Congratulations for saying what needed to be said and saying it with such humour.

Ray on Wednesday, 17 February 2016

Hi Tim - I am Australian-born survivor of organized CSA and wanted to thank you for 'Come Home' So few people are willing to take a stand for survivors, especially because of libel laws I'd really like to get in touch privately regarding George Pell as I don't feel safe speaking out in public, if that's okay? I follow you on twitter so if you have time to DM or email that would be awesome -Ray

BRAVO ' Introduce the conversation - Is it about time the cover-ups of the churches are to finally able to explain why it was okay - but the blind -eyes in every community allow it - it is not a conversation at all -It should be - Hey mums not looking -come sit on my lap wiggle a little closer -here -have a little puff You are a pretty girl -I like you the most Wiggle in sweet-heart -I love you close Hey -you get to bed Can't you hear your mother coming - She's not to know - I've got you smoking '

BRAVO ' Introduce the conversation - Is it about time the cover-ups of the churches are to explaine - but the blind -eyes need to consider the others - there are

Trish Evans on Wednesday, 17 February 2016

I have never purchased music digitally, so instead I donated to the crowdfunding site, using the link from your You Tube song. Thank you all for doing this song: it says what many of us have been thinking about Pell. He obviously doesn't realise that 'the buck stops here'. No respect for the gutless coward.

Leslie Curtin on Wednesday, 17 February 2016

Your one of our bestest Australian artists. Thank you

Fiona Coote on Wednesday, 17 February 2016

Tim, well done, your song is absolutely brilliant! As a Catholic, I'd like to thank you for verbalising the thoughts of so many Australians about this pompous old grub!

Gerard on Wednesday, 17 February 2016

Great song, Tim! Very a-pelling

Amy on Wednesday, 17 February 2016

Thank you so much for not only writing the Cardinal Pell song, but playing it in public. As a child sex abuse victim myself, your courage to speak out so openly helps us so much. We have some energy to push these issues, but we need others to help us and you've done just this. I cannot thank you enough.

Christina on Tuesday, 16 February 2016

What's not to love about your work Tim? Thanks for producing a piece which so eloquently expresses how so many of us feel about Cardinel Pell. This is such a great way to utilise the power of celebrity, alongside intelligent moral integrity. I wish the survivors much strength when they get to the Vatican to face Pell personally.

Robyn on Tuesday, 16 February 2016

Re the Cardinal Pell piece - Absolutely brilliant way to shame this cowardly man! Was visiting the Vatican recently and saw this pompous man in a cafe enjoying his lunch in the sunshine - he looked fit and well to me but I have to say he looked slightly... ummm troubled - I put it down to fake humility !

Cindy on Tuesday, 16 February 2016

Tim I've been a fan of yours since the Butterfly Club days - and your 'come home Cardinal Pell' is utterly fantastic. I hope enough money is raised to bring the bastard home. Great work.

Carmen Andrews on Tuesday, 16 February 2016

Good on you Can I buy the pell song Carmen

Celia on Saturday, 13 February 2016

I have only just got round to watching Atticus Fetch in Calafornication and wow you are amazing. I knew you were a great actor but this was a brilliantly believable portrayal of a wonderfully complex rockstar. Genius!

Emma on Tuesday, 9 February 2016

After so long, I've found you again; and I love you as much as I did years ago. Wonderful songs. Thanks

Jeff on Sunday, 7 February 2016

Please come to northeast USA. You concerts look amazing and I would love to experience it in person.
