Lawmakers in Australia are trying pass a law that would require priests to report any instance where child abuse revealed to them in the confessional. Gus talks about the teaching on the Sacrament of Confession and explains the Church’s teaching on why the seal of confession can never be broken. He gets listener reaction.
Also, Gus talks about the increase in the vandalism on statues in public settings, following the forceful removal of a Confederate memorial at a park in Durham, NC at the hands of the World Workers Party. Yesterday, it was reported that a statue of St. Junipero Serra, in Los Angeles, had been defaced and Gus says that it seems that the crazies have now been emboldened.
