Hi, is this an idiom?
Could you paraphrase the section below?

The clergy are all half-cracked - only don't say I said to you. Speaking of which, that's what I was calling earlier to say to you?

- with the caveat that it's only between you and me.

You might also hear, "only don't say I said so".
Or, equally common is "You didn't hear that from me."

Also, "Don't tell anyone I said this".
