Breaking the seal

•David Quinn's arguments against the laws requiring priests to 'break the seal of the confessional' would be laughable, except that so many people hold such beliefs. There is no attack on freedom to follow the Catholic religion.

Those who wish to utilise the confessional may still do so.

Paedophiles who believe the process will cleanse their immortal souls may still decide that punishment on earth is a small price to pay for eternity in heaven.
