CONFESSIONS OF A CRIME…

If someone confesses a crime to a clergy, should the clergy report it to Police?? Because of the professional ethics of confidentiality, in regards to clergy, this ensures that congregants or clients can share their concerns, questions or burdens without fear of disclosure. It creates a context of respect and trust within which help can be provided. The tradition of clergy confidentiality has allowed some people to seek help who otherwise might not do so out of fear of punishment or embarrassment. Often called into question are situations involving physical or sexual abuse of children. Here’s my question to you, and please weigh in. This is an important issue. If a person confessed to a priest that they had something to do with a murder/disappearance/crime, should he break his code of conduct and tell police?

Remember the Stacey Peterson case, where Stacey told her Pastor, that Drew Peterson admitted he had killed Kathlene Savio, his 3rd wife, and asked Stacy to cover for him, which she did. The Pastor never said anything until after Stacy had disappeared but his information was crucial to the investigation.

  1. What is up with this? You at least need to give an explanation as to why you removed your article stating you have the facts and will reveal them today! We deserve that much.

    So guess you are not going to follow through with your promised word revealing all the aspects of what has been going on with Misty.

    This is so sad. Did you join in with the Hype and sensationalism?
    I hope not.

  2. I am here find out the scoop like promised last night.

    “Everyone has been wondering what happened to Misty Cummings. Where did she go? What has she been doing since she went “into hiding”? Well I have the answers, exclusively. Tune in to my blog tomorrow for a detailed account of who she was with, where she’s been and what she’s been doing. I can give you a hint tonight. She isn’t on “vacation” as everyone speculated, and she wasn’t “with friends.””

  3. Uh huh. Just what I thought. All hype and no goods. You probably don’t know anything more than anyone else out there reading about this family.

  4. Why the change in articles, I had sent countless links to your website and now the original article you wrote this morning is gone!! Was it not true?? What about the big reveal today?? Is that going to happen??

  5. What is going on? Please at least give us some information on why you pulled your story. It’s out-retracting it doesn’t make it disappear.
    The public wants to know what is happening.

  6. What happened? You need to give your readers an explanation on why you pulled your original article.

    Did you really have anything to begin with?
    Was this just a ploy to get hits on your site?

    Where is your credibility now?

  7. Please answer the ?. Why do you keep deleting this? We need answers as to what’s going on with this case, and you claim you have them, and said you’d give them. WAITING!

    1. I agree, first off we answeared you question,some believed yes and some said no,next i sent you a myspace because if it is misty wow there maybe a break in the case or it could very likely be a fake hwoever,yes we are concerned people who would love nothing more then to see haliegh alive and notlike caylee anthony,burried in the woods in a trash bag.It is eartbreaking,so whats the big news?

  9. Probably because one of us hit the nail on the prevervial hammer last night…*ehem* once again………Wheres Mr Cummings in all of this? And how did they manage to get her away from him? And you said it was about to blow…so are we now retracting that little teaser?

    You know, I will trust you know what your doing….But is NG has her hands on any of it….it will be meaningless………she so far has screwed up so many facts in this case. Its so very sad.

    1. wickers,don’t ya know, rons not speaking to misty according to art harris whom i believe,nancy asked the same questions we are”wher eis he in all this and why is misty running”so now we probley hit it on the head,misty is probley guilty of something and ron dose, dose know what it is and is getting ehr to take most of the downfall for it,if allaccounts are true and misty did something then hid haleigh and rons already knows then boom their both going to the pokie.

    1. May,I agree theres no other wb sites reporting she saw a priest no news reports i even checked ng,so i agree with you if steph has proof she saw a preist and so forth,coem clean and let us know,i think i po’d him off when i sent the myspace but as i said if it isn’t her and a fake fine but if it is i just blew a lid way high in the sky because she’ll use that to come clean ,maybe

  10. so far it looks like it is mistys myspace,i ran the url,seems she changed her origanial picture of her standing at a corner in jeans,if this is heres, i would like an email to whom eve ris investigating this case and get the imfo out,if she budges a little it’ll be on he rmyspace.

  11. It is sad to see Steph Watts take a misstep, since he has had the most credibility of all the bloggers and reporters thus far.

    But the reaction here is just too much.

    Compare his record and his quickness and honesty in posting a retraction and giving us an explanation vs the way the other three primary bloggers and TV hosts in this case handle it. They produce a steady stream of false reports, hype, and Bombshells! [NOT] to mislead and be cited as fact by a much bigger audience.

    We should demand Art, TJ, NG, and the other dude retract all their mistakes just as loudly. I’m sure Steph will be more careful next time, but they won’t.

    Anyone can make a mistake and gain their credibility back with an explaination.

    He has failed to do that for some reason. I think he sold the story to Nancy Grace.

      I agree that they can gain credibility back with an explanation, but he has not failed to do so. He gave a very heartfelt mea kulpa and explanation here. Maybe you missed it?

      Too bad we never see such honesty from the other bloggers or NG.
