Why won’t priests divulge crimes learnt of in the confessional?
Kieno Kammies, presenter of Cape Talk’s breakfast show speaks to Archbishop Stephen Brislin, Archbishop of Cape Town about why priests won’t divulge crimes learnt of in the confessional. This is in the light of the Catholic Church in Australia saying last week that it would be opposing laws forcing priests to report child abuse when they learn about it in the confessional, setting the stage for a showdown between the country’s biggest religion and the Australian government. Archbishop Brislin explains why.
