Edit request[edit]

The Mary MacKillop wiki page contradicts this: "The Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) said in September 2010 that MacKillop had been "banished after uncovering sex abuse" and cited Father Paul Gardiner in evidence of this. Gardiner described this suggestion as false, saying "Early in 1870, the scandal occurred and the Sisters of Saint Joseph reported it to Father Tenison Woods, but Mary was in Queensland and no one was worried about her." The executive producer of the ABC documentary said that the documentary did not suggest that MacKillop was excommunicated because of her role in exposure of child abuse: "At no stage ... is it claimed Mary MacKillop was excommunicated because she personally reported instances of abuse to the Catholic Church." -citations in the Main.

Not done - @Manannan67:, you are requesting that we alter an article more than 10 years in the past. Wikinews articles are written from what is known at the time. They do not evolve with history even if they are proved wrong later. Furthermore, Wikipedia articles are not reliable sources. Wikinews will issue corrections if mistakes were made given the information available at the time. If you truly have an issue with this article, resubmit your request with sources from 2010 and not just what Wikipedia says. I hope you understand this position.
