Luke 17:2

It would be best for that person to be thrown into the sea with a large stone hung around his neck than for him to cause one of these little ones to lose his faith.

To cut off the ability to receive forgiveness of one’s sins because of the fear of exposure would cause countless people to loose their faith. If this law were to reach into the confessional not a single crime would be exposed. Rather those who would have sought forgiveness would just refrain from going to Confession.

Not sure what you are intending for that passage to mean in this context. But I will tell you now that no reporting of any crime, no matter how horrific, should take place if it means the confessional seal is broken. God’s laws are more important than the state’s laws.
