Prices or Bindings?

If the serial killer comes to the priest and says, 'I have killed six people and plan to kill more. You, Father, included.' Does the priest have license to act out of self-preservation? If not, are you crazy? If so, what does that do to your argument?

The priest comes close to being convicted and executed for the murder, because he can never say or do anything based on the confession he heard.
