Hillsong Church

5-year NSW Police investigation into Hillsong’s Brian Houston covering up for his paedophile father continues. Why 5 years?

After 5 years the NSW police told me on Friday (23-4-21) that they are still investigating Brian Houston for the cover-up of his father’s sexual abuse of children and on Tuesday Prime Minister Scott Morrison was on stage on the Gold Coast, with 2 of Brian Houston’s alleged accomplices, helping promote the fraud scam that is known as Pentecostal Churches. It is disturbing that none of the old media reported Scott Morrison’s trip to the Gold Coast on Tuesday even though it was apparently paid for by taxpayers.

Scott Morrison has been lying about his knowledge of the police investigation into Brian Houston since at least 2019 and denied in an interview in March 2020 that he knew that Brian Houston was under police investigation when he tried to take Houston to the White House on a government visit in September 2019. But how does Scott Morrison justify being on stage this week with 2 of Brian Houston’s alleged accomplices? Does Scott Morrison claim to still know nothing?

The background:

The NSW Police have been investigating Brian Houston since 2016 which means they have been investigating for at least 5 years and it is a blatant police cover-up on the instructions of NSW Police Commissioner Mick Fuller. The police stopped the investigation for a while but in November 2018 they started investigating again after a 60 Minutes report on Channel 9 embarrassed the police so the police said they had new evidence and re-opened the investigation which has never gone anywhere.

I have been reporting this matter for a few years and the longer it goes on the more blatant the cover-up by the NSW Police becomes which is now at least in part to protect Prime Minister Scott Morrison although the cover-up started before he was Prime Minister.

The background

In July 2019 I wrote in an article and said:

Prime Minister Scott Morrison and his wife were on stage leading prayers in front of 21,000 people on Tuesday night (9/7/19) with the Hillsong Church’s Brian Houston who is still under investigation by the NSW police for concealing the sexual abuse of children by his father Frank Houston.

In 2014 while giving evidence at The Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse Brian Houston admitted he knew his father had abused children and he had failed to report it to the police so it is not a fact that is in dispute or a fact that Scott Morrison wouldn’t know.

There are many reasons, which I outline below, why Scott Morrison should have never been on stage with paedophile protector Brian Houston who is under investigation by the NSW police.

I emailed questions to the Prime Minister as per below but he has refused to answer but the NSW police did respond to my email (as below) on Wednesday (10/7/19) and confirmed that they are still investigating Brian Houston which was first reported by the media in November 2018 by Channel 9. Why didn’t Nine follow up with the police as I did? Maybe it is because Nine’s Chairman is former federal treasurer Peter Costello who is also a mentor to Scott Morrison and who has also led prayers at the Hillsong annual conference.

In November 2019 I wrote an article and said:

The NSW police are refusing to deny political interference by Prime Minister Scott Morrison in the police investigation of his good friend and mentor Brian Houston who is under investigation for concealing his father’s sexual abuse of children.

In September 2019 it was reported that Scott Morrison tried to take Brian Houston on his visit to the USA and Washington but the White House rejected Brian Houston.

On Tuesday (26/11/19) news broke that Prime Minister Scott Morrison had phoned the NSW Police Commissioner to ask about a police investigation into federal MP Angus Taylor which had only been announced a few hours earlier.

Putting two and two together it became obvious to me that if Prime Minister Scott Morrison phoned the NSW police to stick his nose into a police investigation into federal MP Angus Taylor then it is almost certain he would have also done the same for his good friend and mentor Brian Houston.

In March 2020 I published an article titled “Scott Morrison’s lies start to unravel about his knowledge of the police investigation into paedophile protector Brian Houston” and said:

Scott Morrison has admitted he lied about trying to take paedophile protector Brian Houston to the White House last September. Of course, Morrison doesn’t call it a lie but what is a bigger lie that is impossible to dispute is Morrison also implying, on the recording below, that he didn’t know Brian Houston was under investigation by the NSW Police for concealing his father’s sexual abuse of children.

In September 2019 when it was reported that Brian Houston was rejected by the White House as a guest during Scott Morrison’s visit all Morrison would say is that it was “gossip” when he was asked by the media if he had asked the White House to invite Houston. (Click here to read more)

Morrison told radio announcer Ben Fordham that in relation to Brian Houston being under investigation by the NSW police:

Prime Minister Scott Morrison: “So, I’m not quite sure what the accusation is about that”

Ben Fordham: “Well as I said it was relevant because as it turns out he was under police investigation and he still is according to NSW police. Would it be fair to say that you were not aware of that at the time?”

Prime Minister Scott Morrison: “No, these are not issues that I follow closely. All I know is that they are a very large and very well attended and well-supported organisation here in Australia”

What “issue” doesn’t he “follow closely”. That has to be admission he knew at least at some point that Brian Houston was under investigation by the police. (Click here to read more)

Scott Morrison visits the Pentecostal Church gathering on the Gold Coast

Scott Morrison was on the Gold Coast for the Australian Christian Churches (Pentecostal Churches) conference on Tuesday the 20th of April 2021, and it started to leak on Twitter and other social media but none of the old media has reported the trip to my knowledge. The below is a Tweet from David Marler @Qldaah on Twitter on Thursday (22/4/21):

Morrison is quoted as telling the conference: “what the country needs is the church!” (Click here to read more)

I had to email the NSW Police Media Team twice and make 2 phone calls on Friday (23-4-21) to get a response about whether their investigation into Brian Houston is still active as they were not receiving my emails they said. I wonder who blocked my email address and on what basis?

Morrison has no shame and his active support of Brian Houston while he is being investigated by the NSW Police is a national disgrace. One of Scott Morrison’s legacies as Prime Minister will be the record number of cover-ups he has overseen and/or benefited from.

  1. There is something very rotten in New South Wales, and it has been that way for a very, very, long time.

  2. Keep up this coverage/putting the police on the spot – relaying these paedophile stories about Scott’s good mates – the Houstons. I am myself from a fundamentalist protestant background in which various kinds of sexual improprieties were a hidden but now bubbling to the surface presence! Interesting to note how Scott at the Pentecostalist love fest (attendance paid for by our taxes) slid around a proper and respectful acknowledgement of country – and then – anyway – tacked on a shout out to veterans – as if equivalent. Disgraceful! It could have come directly from a US songbook!

  3. It’s amazing how sometimes an “event” occurs (let’s call some of them false flags for example) and within hours or sometimes even minutes they know the who, how and why of the guilty party/ies, yet some investigations go on for years and “We still don’t know.”

    I think it’s safe to say that when they want to blame someone (usually wrongly) they do so virtually immediately, but when they need to hide their own and their mates’ crimes the so called investigations go on forever until people forget and they find little to nothing.

  4. You would have to be pretty dumb not to see that our PM is involved in these cover-ups. Why , after 5 years , the NSW police are stating that the investigation is “Still on-going”. What utter BS !
    They been instructed to delay this matter as long as possible , when most people will have forgotten it, and then the matter will eventually disappear. You can’t honestly believe that this whole delay hasn’t originated from the top.
    As for our PM, how dumb is he to continue his association with Brian Houston & the Hillsong Church, when we all know that he is fully aware of the whole matter.
    KCA, all kudos to you for keeping this issue prominent,(even after 5 years) & hope that you can put more pressure on the NSW police to bring this matter forward soon & charges to be laid on Brian Houston asap.

    • I am not so sure he is dumb. I believe morrison is so arrogant that he believes he is able get away with these corrupt practices. He has history, CEO of NZ and AUS Tourism fired from both positions over alleged corrupt financial practices, covering up ‘boat’ incidents by using “on water operations”, involvement in sports rorts, covering for Houston, making out he did not know about Ms Higgins, covering for Bruce Lehrmann, alleged corrupt activities with various heads of the AFP and NSW Police. There others that I can not name now also.

  5. Paedophiles and those who cover up for paedophiles should be arrested and have to face court. I cannot believe that we have an Australian PM who does nothing about ensuring that all investigations of paedophilia are properly investigated and those who should face court, do so.

  6. Morrison and his government, and the NSW government, are rotten to the core and make the mafia look like angels.

  7. All interesting replies, all agree with the corruption involved and maybe they can work hard and ‘spread the word’ that with the power of voting there has to be a method of ridding Australia of all politicians and judges who are corrupt, lying, criminal bast**ds.

  8. It is clear that ScoMo’s religious beliefs are in conflict with his professed intent to do better with women’s issues. The Pentecostal Church believes in the subjugation of women. This is a description of the Pentecostal values: Pentecostals, like most other conservative Christians, have very traditional views on both gender and sexuality, taking their cues from particular views of certain biblical passages. Regarding gender, Pentecostals try to mirror what they view as traditional family values. As such, women’s roles in Pentecostalism are tightly conscripted to the home and church. Non-traditional roles for women, in the professions or as entrepreneurs, are not discouraged, but they are secondary to a woman’s primary role as helpmates to men.

  9. Scott Morrison is the biggest con man that that has ever lead our country!and for the puppets underneath him well as the saying goes you lay down with dogs you get fleas ! This is the most corrupt government this country has ever seen ( by a long way ),until there is accountability there will be no change ! I

  10. Have you thought that maybe the investigation into Houston going on five years is because he was born in NZ if convicted of an offence that is longer that a years incarceration would have to be deported to NZ and have his Australian citizenship cancelled.

  11. In the 23 minute speech ScoMo doesn’t mention “Jesus” even once. But he does acknowledge Brian & Bobby Houston.
