Doctor-patient privilege, including that for psychotherapy, can be breached if/when the doctor suspects a crime was or is about to be committed.


Not, not past tense. If the crime is in progress, or there are reasonable grounds to believe that it will be committed, yes, privilege does not apply. But information of any any crime that has been committed in the past is still privileged.

Quote:

For example, an ER physician treating a child with an unusual number of injuries may call the authorities to report a suspicion of child abuse.


This is different, the perpetrator of the crime is not a patient, so the privilege does not apply.

I just wish I could recall the term for it that Pol Pot used. It's one of the words that like "re-education" that sounds very innocuous, but really isn't.

Came back across it today when reading up on the Shining Path.

Read any serious history about that period and the myths and untruths Bob writes about will be exposed



He's referring the cover up job the Church has been doing
since Vatican II to whitewash their image. They want to play
down all the atrocities they commited in the past by denying
most of them ever happened. Look, they say, we've found
'hidden' documents in the Vatican archives that show the
Inquisition wasn't so bad after all. They aren't fooling anybody,
but they will eventually. If you tell the lie long enough, people
will believe. This is all part of the new, friendlier, hands on
Church. Thats why they stopped having mass in latin here,
it wasn't 'people friendly'.

Just got back from NCYC; a gathering of 23,000 young Catholics who were all "Called to Glory". What an amazing experience! One of the things that struck me was how hungry the youth were to go deeper in their relationship with God. We gave them a lot of quality presentations and entertainment, but what they wanted more than anything was an experience of prayer and connection to the Divine. They are looking for hope, meaning, purpose, and promise in their lives - it was truly glorious to see. It gave me lots of hope for the future of the Church and our world.

Maybe this thread isn't the appropriate place for this sort of diatribe. The statements you're making and implying require documentary proof, and you haven't provided any links or references for any of us to examine any. I recommend the Please rag on religion here, not in FrGamble's bible study thread under the "Announcements" heading.

Glad to hear things are going well for you, Padre. BTW I got a chuckle, back in my younger days people were still using the old expression "called to glory" as a sardonic way to say someone died! Apparently that is an archaic enough use today to escape any such humorous double meaning with most people now [I'd have to guess your conference used the expression].
the next time Dame Fortune toys with your heart, your soul and your wallet, raise your glass and praise her thus: “Thanks for nothing, you cold-hearted, evil, damnable, nefarious, low-life, malicious monster from Hell!” She is, after all, stone deaf. ... Arnold Snyder

No, the Shining Path are/were a group of Peruvian guerillas fighting for a Maoist revolution. Nasty brutal bunch.

Here are a few links that could shed some light on this dark time in history:
