Clergymen gained’t obey new legislation;
it violates spiritual liberty
The California Senate not too long ago handed a invoice (SB 360) that might power Catholic clergymen to violate the sanctity of the confessional.
Whereas defenders of the proposed legislation argue it’s wanted to stop sexual abuse by clergy, have they been in a position to level to a single case that this legislation would have prevented?
The California Legislature has no enterprise intruding into the spiritual observe of the state’s 10 million Catholics.
Clergymen won’t obey this legislation and the courts will nearly actually overturn it as a gross violation of the spiritual liberty assured by the U.S. Structure. The senators who supported this needs to be ashamed. Allow us to hope the Meeting reveals higher sense.
