.. one option is no one ever confesses to a priest which is what you are pushing for or ...the other option is confess to a priest where you will be strongly advised to make amends and turn yourself in for your penance or speak outside the confessional and then someone else turns you in.
If someone is prepared to go to confession they are not far off handing the money back to the bank or seeking help etc.

Possibly, or they somehow ease their own guilt by confessing with no intention of taking it further.

Have a lie down, Cooldude.
I am, lying down sipping my green tea laughing at you non-stop spamming posts defending pedos on the internet

You are forever comedy to me. Like clockwork you respond to every post instantly, hope the church is paying you well hawking this thread 24/7, or that you'll find something more worthwhile to do with your life, like watching Game of Thrones or pron.

Wait you worked at the catholic church, you do plenty of the latter

Which pedo have I defended?

Pell’s not a pedo.

Non that play Essendon
I’m not sure it’s arrogant. It makes sense if you believe what they believe.

I don’t, at least not to any meaningful level, but the logic does follow.
That may be the justification, however state law has over ruled canon law for at least since Henry 11 / Becket who essentially were arguing over whether members of the church could be tried for crimes such as murder and rape.

That may sound like old news but laws are built on history and parliament makes the laws so the church should be looking for ways to ensure those who commit these acts are handed over for their day in court.

Never worked at the Catholic Church. But I am partial to a bit of tasteful porn. Nothing too rough.

Well Pell did that. Handed over 70 odd files to the cops. Cops didn’t act then denied they’d been given the files. Pell proved Ashton was a liar. Investigation into Pell opened inside a couple of months.

Surely, surely the Lawyer X stuff must be showing some sort of pattern here.

Not at all, mate. Not at all.

Why do you think the Fabians hate the Catholics so much. Hint:Look to the 50s.
FMD, you mean the 1950s and 1960s when the church and its stooges spent every effort and used dirty trick they could to thwart the will of the people in Australia through the use of its DLP front organisation and backroom blackmail of the tory governments.
Not to mention the church's outrageous support for the slaughter in Vietnam (including the sacrifice of Australians not even old enough to vote) in order to protect their friends in the corrupt catholic dictatorship.
Catholics with any sense of human decency would stay very quiet and steal silently away when their church's actions here in the 1950s/1960s are mentioned.

What was the will of the people ?

Australian Catholicism’s greatest period. Kept the Communists from controlling the ALP. That’s a matter of historical fact.

Happy to do the Vietnam thing in another thread at another time.
