Wow. Just wow. What more can you say? If she wins and I am her daughter - I sue her.

I think that "confession-like communications" should be kept confidential... as long as they don't involve committing a felony. Your congregant slept with their neighbor's wife? Sure, keep that confidential as they work through the process. Your congregant embezzled money, or raped someone, or murdered someone? Nope - no expectation for confidentiality. From a religious standpoint, they should be ready and willing to go to jail to remedy their actions.

Good for the Mormons for reporting it, and shame on this lady for suing them.
