The Catholic Church says it will not follow new Tasmanian laws that require priests to break the seal of confession to report suspicion of child sex abuse.
Archbishop Julian Porteous, Tasmania’s most senior Catholic, states the new laws will make paedophiles less likely to disclose their crimes. So he plans to completely ignore them.
“I believe the Tasmanian bill will not strengthen protections for children and vulnerable people, but it will have the opposite effect — as offenders will be less likely to come forward to confess serious sins for fear of being reported”
Victoria Police knowingly and wilfully broke the law creating a ridiculous miscarriage of justice. They then used over $4.5m of taxpayers money in order to keep their mess a secret and solve a situation that they themselves knowingly and wilfully created.
A 17-year-old student armed with a shotgun and pistol has opened fire in a Texas high school, killing nine fellow students and a teacher, authorities say, in an attack similar to the massacre at a Florida high school in February.
Apparently I’ve severely underestimated the allure of rockmelons. Much like the Siren of Greek myth luring an enraptured sailor to his watery grave, the temptation of the rockmelon is seemingly impossible to resist.
A Victorian man in his 80s has become the fifth person to die in a listeria outbreak after eating contaminated rockmelons.
I TRIED TO WARN YOU ALL WEEKS AGO! THIS STORY IS IN THE NEWS EVERY DAY! FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS HOLY! THE ROCKMELONS ARE CONTAMINATED! STOP EATING THEM! WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS? I DON’T UNDERSTAND!!
