Italian man catches wife in bed with priest
An Italian husband returned home early from work to find his wife in bed with their local priest.

By Nick Pisa in Rome
Last Updated: 5:33PM BST 14 Sep 2008

Following the shock discovery, the man stormed into the local bishop's office in Chioggia, near Venice, and demanded an explanation. Later police were called to calm him down.

Details of the incident in Chioggia near Venice emerged on Sunday in Italian newspapers and the local bishop Angelo Daniel has now confirmed that the adulterous priest has been sent to another parish for "reeducation". [Craggy Island? Cool ]

The 53-year-old priest was described as a specialist on the Bible and had been a good friend of the couple.

The husband, 39, and his wife, 37, have two children.

Bishop Daniel added: "I have always respected the priest in question and I will continue to respect him. You cannot discount all the good a person has done in their life just because of one mistake."

I think that because the church is finding it difficult to recruit enough priests, the Vatican has decided on a breeding programme instead.

This priest was just involved in on-the-job training... Very Happy

It's never a dull moment, with the Reverend Mullen.

Vicar could be disciplined for blog slurs against gays and Muslims

Rev Peter Mullen joked about homosexuals and Islam on an internet blog

guardian.co.uk, Riazat Butt, religious affairs correspondent. October 06 2008

A Church of England vicar could face disciplinary action for saying gay men should have "sodomy" warnings tattooed on their bodies.

The Rev Peter Mullen, who is a parish priest and rector in the City of London, made the remarks on his blog, which has since been removed from the web under an agreement with diocesan officials.

Mullen, 66, wrote it was time for religious believers to recommend the discouragement of homosexual practices in the style of cigarette packet warnings.

"Let us make it obligatory for homosexuals to have their backsides tattooed with the slogan sodomy can seriously damage your health and their chins with fellatio kills."

In a previous posting Mullen anticipated an "agreeable carnage" at the start of the annual Hajj, the Muslim pilgrimage to Mecca.

"They usually manage to stampede and slaughter quite a few hundred of their co-religionists. Just imagine for a moment what a field day the BBC and the leftwing press in England would have if anything even remotely as bad as that happened in Vatican Square at Christmas or Easter."

Mullen criticised the lack of jokes about Islam in the media, remarking that adherents "certainly lend themselves to ridicule: sticking their arses in the air five times a day. How about a few little choruses, 'Randy Muslims when they die/Find 70 virgins in the sky'?"

In a statement referring to the tattoo blog, the Right Rev Richard Chartres, bishop of London, condemned Mullen's opinions. "While clergy are entitled to their own personal views, we recognise that the content of this text is highly offensive and is in no way reflective of the views of the diocese of London."

Chartres was alerted to the blog in June and promised to "have a word" with Mullen. He was said to be taking the matter seriously, although his office stated it was not in a position to edit blogs written by an individual, however much they might disapprove of the sentiments expressed. A spokesman for the diocese said it was possible that Mullen could be disciplined on the grounds of engaging in conduct unbecoming or inappropriate to the office and work of the clergy.

Despite the bishop's rebuke, Mullen played down the posts, which he described as "light-hearted jokes".

"I wrote some satirical things on my blog and anybody with an ounce of sense of humour or any understanding of the tradition of English satire would immediately assume that they're light-hearted jokes. I certainly have nothing against homosexuals. Many of my dear friends have been and are of that persuasion. What I have got against them is the militant preaching of homosexuality."

Makes me almost regret recommending that priests who come out with really twattish pronouncements, should have 'Twat!' tattooed on their foreheads, a few weeks back.

Almost.

Frank Skinner had a go at this on the recent Secret Policeman's Ball (for Amnesty International) last Friday(?) - His song "Oh, oh, oh, Osama Bin Laden!", sung in the style of George Formby, was a hoot! Cool

Perhaps this priest should go into show business instead...

His talents are obviously wasted in the Spiritual & Moral leadership & guidance business.

Perhaps, he could take over Bernard Manning's old club?

I guess this fits in here:

One man, seven wives, eight children... And two more on the way. Is this Britain's most bizarre family?
By Neil Sears
Last updated at 9:33 AM on 07th October 2008

You would think seven wives would be more than enough to keep a man busy.
But Philip Sharp has a little more on his plate than usual - two are pregnant at the same time.
Margo, 39, is due this month, while Vreni, 38, is scheduled to deliver in January.

Mr Sharp, a self-proclaimed rabbi, came to public attention two years ago thanks to his bizarre living arrangements.
God, he claimed, had told him he was a reincarnated Old Testament king. And so he lives like one, with a harem of devoted 'wives', none of whom he is legally married to.
Now the 'rampant rabbi', as he has been called, has eight children by four wives - on top of five by a previous and now estranged wife.


He is looking forward to the next two arrivals. 'I never use contraception and I don't let my wives take the Pill unless they really don't want kids,' he declared at his Sussex farmhouse.
'My three partners who haven't had children find it hard when the other women fall pregnant.
'I'm spending more time with Margo and Vreni as we prepare for the births.'

Margo was 25 and had never had a serious boyfriend when she met Mr Sharp at his 'synagogue' based in Hove.
Now about to give birth to her fourth child by him she said: 'I used to want a normal relationship with one husband, and was scared when I was first invited to marry Philip.
'But I thought about it, and heard God telling me I should.
'The first year was the hardest, and I was very jealous of the other wives. I told Philip - and he said I should learn how to share, and now I have.
'Now I feel blessed that my children call the other wives "Mummy", and I trust them completely with my kids.

Vreni, six months pregnant with her second child with Mr Sharp, is originally from Switzerland.
She was studying languages in England when she heard about his synagogue.
God, she claims, told her to join. 'At first I worried what my friends and family would think but I realised what God wanted was more important,' she said.
She added: 'I cannot wear makeup to appear attractive to anyone else other than Philip. I like to abide by the rules.'

And Mr Sharp, 48, certainly has a household full of rules.
His wives have to wear hats to shield their hair from other men, follow a rota for housework, and attend to his every whim.
They also have to help out in Mr Sharp's haulage business. And they have to be content not to have had a proper wedding - as he insists their marriages simply began when they first had sex. Rolling Eyes

In fact, the only woman he is legally married to is Hadass, 53 - an Israeli who left him nine years ago when he made clear he was planning to take on a whole host of new wives.
She has since claimed he began flirting with other women on their honeymoon in 1984, and that he would demand sex at all hours of day and night.
After she left, the congregation at Mr Sharp's 'biblical Judaism' synagogue dwindled and he was later excommunicated by the group.

He first 'married' his secretary Judith, 49, and within three years added Tracey, 41, Hannah, 50, Vreni, Margo, Chava, 64, and Karyn, 29, to his harem.
Karyn's mother Maureen also lives in the household and teaches the children in a converted barn next door. Currently the youngsters are aged between six months and nine years old.
Mr Sharp now only ministers to the faithful in his own family.
As no one claims benefits, the haulage business needs profits of £400 a week to pay grocery bills.
All the wives submit to his bedroom demands.
Mr Sharp said: 'There is no rota for sex. It depends on where I'm at with each wife emotionally and spiritually.
'I spend time with whoever I like, and it is often the wives I have more fun with that I want to be with. When they quarrel, I call a family meeting and the other wives act as a jury so we can resolve it.'

Funny how if you're a "self-proclaimed" holy man, you always seem to find followers, but if I were a self-proclaimed billionaire, I'd have trouble convicing even one person.

Viagra-popping priest named Elvis accused of seducing parishioner in the confessional is sued for $25m
By Daily Mail Reporter
Last updated at 4:15 PM on 30th October 2008

A Catholic priest in New York is being sued by one of his parishioners who claims he seduced her in the confessional box.
Judith Rodrigues-Lytwyn has launched a $25million lawsuit against Father Elvis Elano following their seven-month affair which ended when he told her about a nasty rash on his private parts which she contends came from another woman. Shocked

According to Rodrigues-Lytwyn, she was pouring her heart out about her sorrow over her divorce during confession when Father Elano told her he loved her.
The 50-year-old claims the priest told her: 'Your presence struck me like a thunderbolt.'
She says Father Elano began courting her and 'encouraging her to engage in a sexual liaison with him to assist her in overcoming her pain associated with her husband and because it was "ordained by God"'.

She said their affair, conducted in her house and in hotel rooms, lasted for seven months, with him ordering Viagra over the Internet.
Rodrigues-Lytwyn said in a statement: 'I was going through a very rough patch in my life and I was looking for some spiritual guidance, and finding some peace from a religious perspective.

'And he essentially took advantage of that. I was overwhelmed by his advances. Once I got my head on straight, I realised that he preyed upon me.'

The Brooklyn Supreme Court suit - against Father Elano, the Diocese of Brooklyn and Our Lady of the Snows in Queens - includes photos she took of him, including one of him shirtless, kneeling next to her bed, and one with him holding a red rose in his teeth.

Exhibit A is a $113 receipt for Viagra obtained from a Salt Lake City chemist. Cool

And she attached the October 6 e-mail he sent which reads: "The other Friday I tried to look for a doctor who does not know me. It is because of the rash/s on my thing. It is spreading out. Now I even have on my legs. They are like spots but painful. I don't know what it is but I am still applying Clobitassol.'

The woman's lawyer, Andrew Laufer, said he does not believe that Rodrigues-Lytwyn is the first.

He told the New York Post: 'This guy knew what he was doing. We feel that he's done this before, exploited a woman such as her, who's in the middle of a divorce, who's been physically abused, and whose self-esteem and self-confidence is as a low. He manipulated that.'

The Rev Kieran Hartington, a spokesman for the Diocese of Brooklyn, said Rodrigues-Lytwyn had approached church authorities to report the affair but would not name the priest.

Father Elano served at Our Lady of the Snows for two years and was moved to a church in upstate New York two months ago.

Parishioners at the church were stunned by the news.

One choir member said: 'This is the first I heard about it and trust me, the choir hears everything.'

Vicar went to hospital with potato stuck in bottom
A vicar attended hospital with a potato stuck up his bottom - and claimed it got there after he fell on to the vegetable while naked.

Last Updated: 2:55PM GMT 31 Oct 2008

The clergyman, in his 50s, told nurses he had been hanging curtains when he fell backwards on to his kitchen table.

He happened to be nude at the time of the mishap, said the vicar, who insisted he had not been playing a sex game.

The vicar had to undergo a delicate operation to extract the vegetable, one of a range of odd items medics in Sheffield have had to remove from people's backsides or genitals.

Others include a can of deodorant, a cucumber, a Russian doll – and a carnation.

Speaking of the vicar, A & E nurse Trudi Watson, of Sheffield's Northern General Hospital, said: "He explained to me, quite sincerely, he had been hanging curtains naked in the kitchen when he fell backwards on to the kitchen table and on to a potato.

"But it's not for me to question his story. He had to undergo surgery to have it removed."

She advised anyone tempted to use such objects in sex games to think again.

"It can be very dangerous and potentially life-threatening," she said.

"Surgery can lead to infection, nasty scarring, and it could possibly end up with the person having to use a colostomy bag as a result."

A hospital trust spokeswoman in Sheffield said: "Like all busy hospitals we do see some unusual accidents.

"But our staff deal with them in a discreet, professional and kind way."
