Queensland passes law to jail priests for not reporting confessions of child sexual abuse

“The legislation means religious institutions and their members are no longer able to use the sanctity of confessional as a defence or excuse in child sex abuse matters.”


Queensland, in the state of Australia, does not limit this to Catholic or Anglican Priests. Any ecclesiastical leader leader who does not report child sex crime when confessed in a confessional will be imprisoned for three years. (THIS MEANS BISHOPS)
