#1195083 Confessional seal of silence.

Posted by mykl_c on 19 August 2017 - 11:42 AM

Working in the Children's Ministry with my church, I'm a mandatory reporter, it's part of our duty of care. We're all required to have our Working with Children numbers on record. We don't practice secret confession, if someone tells us they've committed a serious crime we report it. God forgives, the state punishes.
The seal of confession crap is reasonably recent RC procedure which needs a fairly simple change - if you confess to an actionable offence, there is no seal.

#1156220 Citizenship consultation now on.

I've heard discussion of them doing this to those who have the 'potential' to have dual citizenship. If a native born Aussie has, through his parents, the capacity to hold citizenship elsewhere, then they'll be vulnerable to this idiocy.

Yet they keep saying the the ALP is playing politics with 'security'.
