For the non-Aussies, he's very much the media/public face of the Catholic Church here. Very outspoken. Very conservative.
Maybe a bit over the top, but I had to get this nightmare out in writing...

All of the cardinals are against abortion. All are against contraception (advocating nfp instead). These positions (I'm going to ignore the 'fascist' and 'pedeophilic' accusations, they don't merit further comment) aren't specific to any one individual, whether they be an Aussie cardinal or an African deacon. Such positions are simply part of Catholic theology, and all those Catholics who adhere to Catholicism will share those same views. Any Catholic Cardinal, yesterday, today and tomorrow will hold the same opinions you so despise.

Also, just about all of the present Cardinals were chosen by Pope John Paul II, so they are going to have his views, more or less. Still, it was claimed, at one point right after the Pope's death, that one candidate, a Czech, had some liberal views. Pope Paul VI opposed the Viet Nam war and had peace masses at the Vatican. Right now the name floating all over the place is Ratzinger, but he's about to turn 78.
