The Rule of the Church


And there it is: the Rule of the Church is more important than the Law of the Land, Justice, or ethical behaviour? The only way to be a just, right person... is to not be a part of the Church.

'“I would feel terribly conflicted, and I would try even harder to get that person outside confessional, but I cannot break the seal,” he said. “The penalty for any priest breaking the seal is excommunication.”'

- archbishop of the archdiocese of Melbourne, Denis Hart

This cretin got one thing right: 'Hart said the commission "hasn't damaged the credibility of the church".'

... of course not. THE CHURCH DAMAGED THE CREDIBILITY OF THE CHURCH.
