I feel like talking about the sacrament of confession and a priest's role.
I can wrap my head around stating the sin, the penance and the healing. But what I cannot understand is the 'seal of confession', the law that states a Catholic priest cannot disclose what is said about any confession, unless they have the confessors permission.
A Catholic someone, gives confession and admits to the killing of an abortion doctor. The media is searching high and low for the killer. The killer needs to be brought to justice. The priest says nothing and hints nothing to the police. For if they did, it would be sacrilege.
How does this not pull at their moral heartstrings?! How can one vow to sit back, to do and say nothing...whether to prevent a crime, or bring justice to a crime? Is that Godly? Is that moral?
