While there’s a teeny, itty bitty part of me that thinks Bill Cosby is just a frail grandpa that deserves a break, this is vastly eclipsed by recapping what he did when he was full-bodied and able.

The senior pastor at Maitland Christian Church in NSW says the redress scheme's compensation (bồi thường) cap of $150,000 is far too low and "everything is weighted far too heavily in the favour of the church".
