Irish catholic priests STILL don't get it... [View all]

They want to continue covering up for the kiddie rapists.

Irish priests have vowed to defy a new law forcing them to report details of sexual abuse revealed in the confessional box.

Irelandís Justice Minister Alan Shatter is to introduce new legislation which will force the clergy to reveal all details disclosed in confession.

But priests have vowed to defy the law despite the threat of a 10-year jail sentence after the introduction of the mandatory reporting legislation.

The 800 strong Association of Catholic Priests has even told the Irish Independent newspaper that its members will flout the Shatter law.
