Catholic archbishop says he would rather go to prison than report child abuse

Staggering that in 2017 these sort of nonsensical beliefs still exist. 

Denis Hart, Archbishop of Melbourne, insisted confession was “a spiritual encounter with God through the priest” and was “of a higher order” than criminal law.

Hart isn’t the only one who puts his beliefs ahead of the rights and we’ll being of children. 

His stance was backed by other high-profile clerics, including his Brisbane counterpart Mark Coleridge and priest and lawyer Frank Brennan, who he said he would “conscientiously refuse to comply with the law” if it was changed.
