God has expressed His divine opinion on this. He founded the Catholic Church. Then His church made saints of many priests who died rather than break the confessional school. Also the Church excommunicates any priest who breaks the confessional seal. Why would a priest want to risk losing grace in his soul, and maybe be denied Heaven?

And who will be giving guidance to the criminal if the criminal is scared to go to the confessional?

Both of you are correct in your replies to me, and I agree with your assessments.

But please bear in mind the context of my earlier comment... it was in reply to impimp stating "God’s laws are more important than the state’s laws."

That particular comment struck me as being pointless, because God certainly has standards of righteousness that apply on both sides of the issue.

For the record, and though I am not Catholic, I favor preservation of the sanctity and confidentiality of the confessional.
