I always advocated that I should be able to go straight to God and let him look into my heart and he would know my sins and when I ask forgiveness I would be forgiven. But no, we must confess our sins to a priest!

Now we can confess our sins to a "virtual priest", a cartoon priest sitting there in his confessional space. So I confess my sins, pressing one for adultery, two murder, three drunkenness, four gluttony and so forth.
