Keyboard Confessional: Clicking Your Way to Forgiveness?
"There is a luxury in self-reproach. When we blame ourselves, we feel that no one else has a right to blame us. It is the confession, not the priest, that gives us absolution," Oscar Wilde wrote in "The Picture of Dorian Gray."

And these days, more people are turning to the Web, not the clergy, to clear their conscience.

One woman's devil-made-me-do-it scenario describes her losing battle against infidelity in an anonymous posting on Confessions.net: "I thought I could control myself around you. I thought you'd watch yourself around me. Both our angels flew off our shoulders, and the devils won." ...

Sorry for the off-topic question, but what does 598 mean? I can't find a meaning anywhere.

Ignoring the issue of the site's effectiveness for a moment, it seems to be an extremely vulgar site. There's no filter for bad language, and people (as might be expected) are sometimes very graphic in their descriptions. Some of the "confessions" sound more like erotica than apologies.

Peter1,

Why did you write 598? Isn't what I stated about confession of sins should be done directly to Christ scriptural?

Confession of sins should not be done over the internet or to a priest but should only be done directly to Christ as the Bible states to do. I never go to Individual Confession. I only go to Communal Reconciliation Service twice a year during Lent and Advent. I also every night when I go to bed ask Christ to forgive any sins that I may have committed during the day.

We all promise not to listen in.

Quote: "In order for the sacrament to be valid, there must be ritual involved in it," Zwilling said. "You have to have a [Catholic] priest absolve you of the sins."

Perhaps if confessions.net had the blessing of a priest (and if penance could be prescribed by an "expert system" akin to Minsky's classic ELIZA "therapist" program from the '60s), it too would be "valid." Anything is possible for the Vatican.
