In Sydney and Brisbane, Archbishops Anthony Fisher and Mark Coleridge made similar statements.
Some Cardinals and Bishops have declared they would rather die than report any crimes disclosed to them during confession.
Father Vincent Ryan confessed to another priest during ‘treatment’ that he had abused children. Nothing was done.
Lawyers said an affidavit filed by pedophile priest Father Michael McArdle revealed he confessed 1500 times to 30 different priests over a 25-year period. Nothing was done.
