Good News and Bad News

I’m going to start with the good news first. The Goods New is that (even though this should already be a Law). In Queensland, at least, and hopefully will roll out. Those in the Church who do not report confessions of people who admit to child abuse, will also be arrested.

The Bad News is that a lot of the Priests wont do it.

Queensland Bishop Michael McCarthy says priests will not break seal of confession to report sex abuse, despite new Law.

Now I’m not Religious, as far as I am aware. These confessions are “private” confessions between God and the confessor. However, I have yet to find a statement also saying that not protecting children is fine. In fact, God says about how breaking the Law is immoral. So pedophilia is definitely against the Law, and for GOOD reason.
