ok so, i dont want to put anything up on here that would incriminate anybody…i know this is a TERRIBLE topic for conversation…but i was just browsing thru some threads and came across one where someone had said some things…idk…me being a very well rounded person picked up on some subtleties i guess you could say that got me wondering…instead of posting this on their thread, which might make them unconfortable if that is the case, i decided to open it up somewhere else…
So…child molestation…if someone goes to confession and confesses they have committed such a thing…and they repent…are they forgiven???
thats the big question for me…does God really forgive child molesters???
and as for the Priest…is he obligated to inform the authorities?? What if the act occured over 20 years ago?
