Lisa Wilkinson had a differing opinion to Waleed Aly on The Project last night. The pair clashed over their opinions surrounding a proposed new law that will affect the Catholic Church ’ s reporting of child abuse revealed in confessions.

Lisa, 58, argued the changes were necessary to provide justice for victims of abuse, while Waleed, 39, insisted the proposal presents a catch-22 for priests.

The heated discussion followed a news bulletin announcing the Victorian Government's response to the Royal Commission's 293 recommendations.

The Government accepted 128 recommendations in full, but will give further consideration to a proposal to fine priests who break canon law to report child abuse admissions heard during confessional.

Waleed strongly disagreed, and criticised the South Australian Government's decision to accept the proposal and assign a $10,000 fine to priests who break the new law.

'Help me out here, because here's the thing I don't understand: how would introducing a law like this actually stop any of this happening?' he asked.

Lisa replied: 'It wouldn't. It would send a message throughout the entire church that 'this much and no more,' that we've protected this behaviour for too long, and no one is above the law.'

'Help me out here, because here's the thing I don't understand: how would introducing a law like this actually stop any of this happening?' Waleed asked Lisa

Waleed snapped back: 'Ok fine, but consider yourself in the position of a priest who's hearing that.

'I'm not a Catholic, I have no interest in defending the confession, but breaking the seal of confession for priests is an ex-communicable offence - it's eternal damnation.

'So now you're giving them a choice between eternal damnation, or a $10,000 fine?

'I just can't see any of them making the decision to avoid a $10,000 fine for the sake of that?'

Lisa replied: 'But it removed the perpetrators' chance of absolution!'

'But it doesn't,' Waleed claimed, 'because if a priest cares enough to be a priest,  they'll maintain that [confessional] seal - the church have already said they're going to maintain the seal.'

Lisa argued the Government could not let the current system continue, 'because the church has been a rule unto itself, and we've had generation after generation of damaged humans.

'And if children - and in particular altar boys - are seen as prey for priests, then we have to step in in a major way.'

Lisa and Waleed still couldn't see eye-to-eye, so co-panellist Tommy Little stepped in to clarify Waleed's argument.

'You think the new law is essentially asking priests to hand their faith away to save $10,000?'

'Yes, and I get the appeal of legislating for that, but I can't imagine the scenario in my head where it works,' Waleed replied.
