What I am saying is that confessions, even to a priest, should be fairgame in court. Anyone who refuses to testify in court about crimes can and usually is held in contempt of court. Priests who refuse to testify in a court of law about known criminal acts should NOT be exempt.
Do you understand now?
1) shuffling SOME pedophile priests from parish to parish when they are discovered by the church.
2) ordering clergy NOT to report crimes to local authorities so that the church can save face by avoiding public embarrassment. Because of this a proper investigation by state investigators into allegations does NOT occur. Many priests have become repeat offenders even AFTER the church discovers the acts because the church thinks it can handle things on its own and in its own secretive ways.
If you believe in the Supernatural then you can become a millionaire!
Questioning or criticizing another's core beliefs is inadvertently perceived as offensive and rude.
