For any Catholics still stupid enough to think there is no difference between the parties, I bring before them the California Confession Bill making its way through the completely Democrat controlled state legislature:
Catholic officials are urging Catholics to continue to oppose a California bill that would force priests to disclose information about child sexual abuse that they hear in the sacrament of confession, which is advancing in the state legislature.
Current California law requires clergy to report suspected abuse or neglect unless the information about the abuse was obtained during confession.
Senate Bill 360, authored by Bay Area Democrat Sen. Jerry Hill, seeks to eliminate this so-called “exemption” for “penitential communication.”
On May 16, the Senate Appropriations committee voted 4-2 to send an amended version of Senate Bill 360 for a vote of the full Senate.
As amended, the bill now protects the seal of the confessional — except in cases where a priest is hearing another priest’s confession or in cases where a priest is hearing the confession of a co-worker.
In a statement, Archbishop José H. Gomez of Los Angeles said the bill remains “an unacceptable violation of our religious freedoms that will do nothing to protect children.”
Go here to read the rest. The bill is unconstitutional on two grounds: freedom of religion and equal protection, as it seeks to eliminate the seal of the confessional for only some people. The bigot behind this monstrosity, Jerry Hill, is a true piece of work. A complete pro-abort, he also claims to be Doctor Jerry Hill on the basis of the non-accredited diploma mill, La Jolla University. Go here to read the rest.
Adjunct Professor Hill is a nut, and this is not a serious piece of legislation but is rather anti-Catholic bigotry in legislative form. This is what happens when the voters place the party of the Jackass in total control of a state. Catholics voting for the Democrat Party are like the tiny fragment of Jews who voted for the Nazi party in Germany.
