Hey I'm getting married next year in Poland and I am told that my Best Man has to go to confession before the wedding. Problem is - he's an atheist so I think it would be inconsiderate of me to force him to go to confession. Is it true the Best man MUST go to confession?

It all depends what the priest says (and whether you're willing to lie to the priest).

I suggest you be a bit jesuitical about it. If the priest says the best man has to go to confession, make it clear that he has his own confessor. The priest cannot insist on hearing anybody's confession. If the subject is not raised by the priest, don't bring it up. I know it's a bit different but when I stood godfather to some friends' baby there were no questions asked.

Either that or just tell the priest that the best man is Jewish. I very much doubt that a priest in Poland would refuse to allow a Jew to be best man at a wedding (and if he does refuse, I can easily sell that story for you).

In that case he should have no problem going to confession. There are (much)harder things to do in life. Confessions are easy(talk b0l0x to a man in a dress). If you asked him to paint your house and pick the stones out of your stoney garden,well that would be really hard,especially if he was a non-painter or non-gardner. Confession are even easier when your athiest so ....................
