Surely this should be a sin?

A BOOKMAKER in Newmarket has paid pounds 10,000 to our Lady and Saint Etheldreda's Church to sponsor a confessional box.

Did I miss something here? How many people's lives have been destroyed by gambling? How many families have gone without food ? How many suicides have there been? Yet this in my opinion has been treated as a laugh - it has infuriated me, I am appalled. Where was the outcry by the Catholic community? Surely this is more serious than a leaked email that was done in private? This confessional box is for real. It is a place where thousands of secrets are told. People go to forget their sins and find absolution. To me it makes a total mockery of this church. I wonder if the Pope is aware of this?
