AS PEDOPHILE SEX SCANDALS RAGE THE VATICAN SAYS LAW ENFORCEMENT CANNOT FORCE PRIESTS TO REVEAL STATEMENTS FROM THE CONFESSIONAL, FALSELY CLAIMS IT IS A ‘SACRED SACRAMENT’

The Holy See’s Apostolic Penitentiary, a tribunal dealing with absolution and confessional matters, reiterated the secrecy obligation for clergy in a six-page document approved by the pope and made public Monday. For years now, the Catholic church has been besieged by lawsuits and other civil actions and targeted by prosecutors, including in the United States, aimed at obtaining justice for children and other victims of sex abuse by clergy and systematic cover-up by priests and bishops.

Amid pedophile clergy scandals, the Vatican has declared “unacceptable” any efforts by politicians or lawmakers to force priests to violate their sacred obligation to keep secret what faithful tell them in confession.

Nowhere in the entire New Testament, in any dispensation, do we see people going and confessing their sins to a priest in the Church Age, it doesn’t exist. In fact, the Bible warns against the idea of a priestly ruling class. Verses in Matthew 20:24-28 clearly show this. The Catholic Church which claims to be a Christian church when in fact it is not, is now saying that the ‘sacrament of confession’ must be protected. There are no “sacraments’ for Christians in the Bible, and the idea of confessing your private sins to another human being is demonic in nature.

“For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.” 1 Timothy 2:5,6 (KJV)

So why is the Vatican so up in arms about protecting the Catholic rite of confession? Because it is in confession that all pedophile priests confess their sins to other pedophile priests, and the last thing they want to have happen is for law enforcement to be privy to that information. I am so glad that God saved me out of this Babylonian mess called the Catholic Church, and I pray that any Catholics reading this article will ask God to save them and become born again according to the Bible.

Amid sex abuse scandals, Vatican upholds confession secrecy
FROM THE AP: The Holy See’s Apostolic Penitentiary, a tribunal dealing with absolution and confessional matters, reiterated the secrecy obligation for clergy in a six-page document approved by the pope and made public Monday.

For years now, the Catholic church has been besieged by lawsuits and other civil actions and targeted by prosecutors, including in the United States, aimed at obtaining justice for children and other victims of sex abuse by clergy and systematic cover-up by many priests and bishops.

“Every political or legislative initiative aimed at ‘forcing’ the inviolability of the sacramental seal would constitute an unacceptable offense against the freedom of the church, which doesn’t receive its very legitimization from any single country but from God,” the document said. Such initiatives would also violate religious freedom, it asserted.

In a written comment on the document, Tribunal head Cardinal Mauro Piacenza cautioned against interpreting the statement as any slackening in Pope Francis’ recently reiterated resolve to combat clergy sex abuse and cover-ups by superiors.
