Two articles on extending the human lifespan and confidentiality between clergy and the parishioner.

Shavua Tov - A Good week to everyone. I have include two links to my most recent newspaper columns.
The first one which appeared two weeks ago is about radical life extension technologies and the implications for religion. The second appeared today and focuses on the issue of confidentiality between clergyperson and parishioner. The history of the clergy confessional laws that protect what people say to their rabbis or ministers has a fascinating history but one should be careful when thinking that the courts will respect that confidentiality as an absolute value. The truth is to the contrary. Read on and tell me what you think.
