I confessed something that was bad ( a very very indirect participation in IMO, a non-violent rape/seduction -something for which there is no one word -through the medium of pornography) and therefore it hit me outside, if he really thought that I was describing a real rape or a fictional one (after all pornography is known for its fictions).
However, I never explicitly qualified it as such. Also, the priest was traditional so I’m sure he isn’t one to underestimate the word “rape” and priests in general are no strangers to sick stuff.
Yet what if he didn’t understand the word “rape” in the way I understood it? There’s a chance he didn’t but my fear of looking like an over-anxious idiot, and the fact that there was probably someone else there made me decide not to rectify the situation.
Was that a good idea or not? And what happens if a confessor misunderstands?
