Australian Investigation On Child Abuse, Request Catholic Ends Celibacy Demand

An Australian quest into child abuse has suggested the Catholic Church revoked its demand of abstinence from clergy and resolve the level that the seal of the confession hides evidence of child abuse.

Australia’s Royal Commission into Institution Responses to Child Sexual Abuse gave its last 17-volume report and 189 recommendations after a wide-ranging scrutiny.

Australia’s longest-existing royal commission – which is the country’ topmost form of inquiry – has been on the investigation since 2012 the way Catholic Church and other institutions responded to children sexual abuse in Australia over 90 years.

The report listened to the testimonies of at least 8,000 survivors of child sex abuse. Among those who were abused in religious places, 62% were Catholics.

“We have agreed that there were terrible leadership failures of Catholic Church authorities over the years,” as reported.

Recommendations has it that the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference ask the Vatican to ti give a second thought on initiating optional celibacy for clergy.

The bishops’ body ought to also request clarity on whether details received in the confessional that a kid has been sexually abused is enclosed by the seal of secrecy and whether forgiveness of a offenders should be revoked till the perpetrator confesses to law enforcement.

Catholic clerics who attest to the royal commission gave mixed perspective about what if anything a priest can disclose about all said in a confessional on child abuse.

Pope Francis’s ex finance minister, Cardinal George Pell, attested in a video link from the Vatican in 2016 about his regime as a priest and bishop in Australia. Pell this year became the highest senior Catholic executive to be charged of sex offence. See below his interview with SkyNew in broad>>>


Pell has assured to combat the charges of sexual assault crime.

The commission discovered that the church’s reply to complaints and worries about clerics in Australia were “amazingly and disturbingly look-alike”.

Australian Catholic Bishops Meeting President, Archbishop Denis Hart, stated the commission “would’ve notable influence on the way the Catholic Church and others function in Australia”.

He said the bishops would rely the suggestions on celibacy and the confession on the Vatican .

“The symbol of the confessional, or the connection with God that is conveyed through the priest and with the person, is absolute. It cannot be broken,” said to reporters.

He tendered apology for the church falling short of children in the past.

Catholicism is the biggest denomination in majority-Christian Australia.
