Andrei Political posers who know not who their real master is

Strong stuff in this AP story.
The Vatican encouraged Catholic bishops not to tell police about suspected paedophile priests and flouted Irish law, Ireland's lawmakers declared Wednesday in an unprecedented denunciation of the Holy See's influence in this predominantly Catholic country.
Anti Catholic spin of course.

What these people don't get or pretend not to get is the sacred seal of the confessional. Once a Priest puts that stole on, he cannot and must not repeat what he hears. And the Irish Government is seeking to make a law which would oblige a priest to break it.

But the desire of the profane secular to break the seal of the confessional, for whatever noble purpose they proclaim, is not what this is really about.

This is about loosening the authority of the Church, weakening its power to lead people from darkness, so that the power of secular authority may increase. And that they may lead everybody - at best down the garden path and at worst into the pit of hell itself.

And if your eyes are open, the battle grounds obvious. For example the arguments over the mass murder of infants which the Church vehemently opposes and for the secular a sacred "right".

Sheer wickedness and sourced ultimately from the Prince of Darkness himself.

So, if I understand this correctly:

Angry that someone protected a child rapist = minion of Satan.

Protector of child rapists = leader of people from darkness.

OK, hopefully I'm not understanding this correctly.

No you don't understand it correctly.

See Milt 15 years ago the Irish Bishops in an attempt to get on top of this issued a set of guidelines on that clergy were to report their brethren to the Garda if they became aware of such issues.

And the Vatican reminded the Bishops that the seal of confession was sacrosanct, as it was, is and always should be.

So this has been spun into your phrase "protecting child rapists" which it is not.

Apart from anything else Milt any confessor worth his salt, would tell a penitent that to be fully redeemed from his/her sin that they would need to put it right within the world i.e. turn themselves in of their own volition. But no confessor can turn them in himself - that would actually negate the spiritual benefit to the penitent of doing it on their own volition.

Now the Irish government wants to change the law so that a priest is obliged, if required by civil authority to break that seal - thereby driving a wedge into the special and sacred releationship between penitent, priest and God.

T'aint got anything to do with "protecting child rapists" or even preventing it occurring, which of course it still does to a distressing degree e.g. the Maori CYFS employee, i.e. government official who raped a boy in custody a couple of years back.

Are there any countries which have passed laws requiring Priests to report, say murders, confessed?

Andrei said...

No Jeremey - in all countries in the Western world the penitent Priest relationship is respected.

A few years ago the FBI bugged and recorded a confession without the knowledge of the Priest.

And the courts hammered them for it and ruled the evidence thus obtained inadmissible.
