Confession is above man-made laws

It amazes me that there appears to be an expectation for the Catholic Church to accept responsibility in its testimony to the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse.

After all, a cornerstone of the church is the practice of confession to absolve one’s sins and perform penance to attain absolution.

If sins are divulged to clergy with skewed moral compasseses, the result can add fuel to a volatile fire and provide many opportunities for abuse of power and collusion.

Once sins are absolved, offending clergy have made their peace with the higher authority and are bound by the confidentiality of the confessional to protect other offenders.

Why then would they breach that confidentiality which would expose them to legal recourse and liability when they consider themselves to be above man-made laws?
