I remember, once I confessed my sins to a priest (I never went to him again! :D) and later while he was conversing with me he told me that masturbation was not a sin! :eek:
I didn’t know what to say to him! I just kept quiet and turned a deaf ear to the nonsense he was talking.
The only question I have is, was that absolution valid? I confessed the sin of masturbation to him, but he didn’t think it was a sin! Was I forgiven then? Or was it an invalid absolution?
