I am unconcerned about such a bill in the U.S. It is straight up unconstitutional. This person is just trying to be sensational. One quote from the bill struck me as odd.
“Right now, we are protecting the predator,” he added, “not the child.”
Do these politicians understand nothing? Such a bill would do zip to protect even one child. There is no priest anywhere that will report a confession, law or no law, and all that such legislation will do is to persecute Catholic clergy and close one small avenue that a pedophile might use to seek redemption and an end to his behavior.
