82-Year-Old Pervy Priest Fired After A Television Station Airs His Sex Tape

In Brazil, an unidentified 21-year-old vowed to get back at 82-year-old priest Luiz Marques Barbosa, who he claims sexually abused him. And so this 21-year-old knelt by a window, and shot a video of Barbosa having sex with a 19-year-old. In the middle of the act, Barbosa noticed him and yelled, “Who is it? Who’s at the window? Who is it? Who’s there?” This guy then took the video straight to his local news channel. A newscaster confronted Barbosa and asked him if he has sinned. “Who has never committed a sin?” Barbosa said. The newscaster then asked him if he had ever abused boys—he said it was a question he could only answer in confession, which certainly sounds pretty guilty. The network aired both his answers to these questions and the footage from the original sex tape. Naturally, Barbosa has been removed from duty, and a police investigation is under way. We just hope there weren’t more victims in this case. [Newser, CNN] Keep reading »

No Celibacy For Married Anglican Priests Who Convert To Catholicism

The Vatican announced last month a plan to make it easier for disillusioned Anglicans, who feel their church has become too liberal, to convert to Catholicism. The plan allows for Anglican priests, including those who are married, to also convert to Catholicism. This stirred speculation that the age-old rule of celibacy for Catholic priests could be rescinded. Not so, says the Vatican. The married priests will join the Personal Ordinariates, the structure set up for ex-Anglicans. They won’t have to be celibate, but unmarried priests who convert to Catholicism and are ordained will have to adhere to the celibacy rule. Only celibate men will be admitted to the Roman Catholic priesthood, but the admission of married Anglican priests will be on a case-by-case basis decided on by the pope. Former Anglican bishops, including married ones, will be able to lead groups of former Anglicans within the Catholic Church, but the bishops will also have to be ordained within the Catholic priesthood. So, it seems the bishops will have to be celibate, even if they’re married, or choose not to be the ministers of their congregations. [Reuters] Keep reading »

Nun Pageant Canceled

So, that priest who organized the Miss Sister Italy contest? Well, his superiors, including the local bishop, weren’t happy with his innovative way of calling attention and praise to nuns and he had to suspend his project. “It was interpreted as more of a physical thing,” Father Antonio Rungi said. “Now, no one is saying that nuns can’t be beautiful, but I was thinking about something more complete.” [Reuters] Keep reading »

Miss Sister: The Beauty Pageant For Nuns

Next month, the first beauty pageant for nuns will debut. Anointing a Miss Sister Italy “will be a way to show there isn’t just the beauty we see on television but also a more discrete charm,” said priest Antonio Rungi. “Nuns are a bit excluded, they are a bit marginalized in ecclesiastical life.” But don’t expect nuns to strip off their habits and compete in swimsuit or evening gown competitions. While Antonio thinks that external beauty is a gift from God not to be hidden, the contest will take place online, with people voting for the nun “they consider a model,” he said.
