what is the history of priest not being able to tell on someone who has committed a crime? Where does it say in the bible?
Oh let me count the ways.
I think that just some priests in the Catholic church might do it--but not all of them.
Voted : It's a convoluted interpretation of scripture.
I don't have time to look it up this morning (CA time) but in one of the Epistles Paul instructs a church in how to deal with errant members. While I have SOME appreciation for it, I don't FULLY agree with the (Catholic) interpretation personally, but... more later if you like.
Voted : Now it's actully heppa laws that prevents telling
but before it was probably based on patient doctor privacy, the church seeing a correlation in priest and confessor.
