Embezzling priest into guns, gay porn, Nazi shit
New York Daily News | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"The Rev. John Johnston, 64, was a pistol-packing padre who had a stash of Nazi memorabilia and gay porn in his Jackson Heights apartment, police said. But perhaps the most evil thing the longtime religion teacher is accused of is breaking the Seventh Commandment by stealing as much as $100,000 from a Long Island church's collection... The Catholic priest's secret life was exposed when cops went to his apartment Tuesday night to bust him for allegedly making 'offensive and nasty' calls to the principal of Bishop Laughlin High School in Brooklyn... Johnston answered the door in a kimono - but what grabbed cops' interest was a huge wad of cash and a revolver sitting on a dresser... 'He had a whole shrine of Nazi memorabilia in his closet, Nazi flags, helmets, daggers, swastikas, German military medals,' the police source said. Before they left, cops also found two other handguns, .38-caliber and .32-caliber, as well as gay pornographic videos and magazines."

Vatican science update: HIV impervious to condoms
Guardian | Submitted by: Jonny Plasma
"The Catholic Church is telling people in countries stricken by AIDS not to use condoms because they have tiny holes in them through which the HIV virus can pass - potentially exposing thousands of people to risk. The church is making the claims across four continents despite a widespread scientific consensus that condoms are impermeable to the HIV virus. A senior Vatican spokesman backs the claims about permeable condoms, despite assurances by the World Health Organisation that they are untrue... 'These incorrect statements about condoms and HIV are dangerous when we are facing a global pandemic which has already killed more than 20 million people, and currently affects at least 42 million.'"

Rael preoccupied with own assassination
Chicago Sun-Times | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"The prophet known to his followers as Rael wants his disciples to share his paranoia that George Bush and Jacques Chirac themselves want his skin. 'There's a strong chance I'll be the next victim of an assassination attempt,' proclaims Vorilhon in the weekly Contact magazine published for Raelian members. 'And the fact that we're talking about it here today is one of the means of trying to avoid it,' he continues... Vorilhon claims the secret service of France and the CIA have been trying to eliminate him because he's dangerous. The name of their secret extermination operation: the Abraham Project... The former journalist goes as far as citing an alleged directive of President Bush: 'I want the skin of this Rael who preaches atheism at all costs.'"

Raelians enjoy fucking
Canoe | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"Just like their prophet, the Raelians like sex. A lot... Sex in abundance, in twos and threes, seems to attract and retain many in the movement. A corner-store cashier in her early 20s, 'Manon,' tried all sorts of movements before ending up in Raelian beds. 'For now, I'm only sleeping with Raelians,' said the young woman with multiple tattoos. 'They're very gentle. Very attentive.' The Raelian, who is bisexual, was thrilled when Rael asked to see all of her tattoos in April. 'If I could provide the prophet with pleasure, I'll do it anytime,' she said."

Coroner acknowledges spanking adult cousins
2theadvocate.com | Submitted by: L. McLin
"Dr. Jerry Sanders said Wednesday that bad press may lead him to quit the race for parish coroner, but he also defended his use of what he deemed 'tough love' - paddling his adult cousins on the buttocks as punishment. Two of Sanders' cousins filed a report with the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office in November in which they claimed Sanders paddled one on his bare buttocks and asked the other to masturbate while being videotaped... They told deputies that Sanders swatted them in exchange for financial support... When asked at the news conference whether he had paddled his cousins even once while they were naked, he got up and left. 'I'm done,' he said, and walked back into the Coroner's Office."

Monk goes postal: shoots priest, burns corpse
Akron Beacon Journal | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"A Franciscan brother admitted Thursday to shooting a Roman Catholic priest to death in his office and setting fire to the church rectory with the body inside. Daniel Montgomery pleaded guilty to a charge of murder and a charge of aggravated arson in the December death of the Rev. William Gulas, pastor of St. Stanislaus Church... 'I want to say how truly sorry I am that this happened,' Montgomery said, wearing an orange jumpsuit and handcuffs. 'I sincerely hope and pray that I may be rehabilitated and honor Father William's memory in that way.' ... Franciscan officials had told Montgomery just before last Thanksgiving that he was being fired. Prosecutors said Montgomery was upset about the firing and may have shot the priest because of that... In a profanity-laced journal entry prosecutors say Montgomery wrote three days before the murder, Montgomery expressed his frustration with the church's criticisms of him."

Wire Services | Submitted by: gremlin

Airport security screeners given bogus job exams
ABC News | Submitted by: optional
"Airport screeners hired by the government to check baggage for bombs were given most of the answers to the tests they took to qualify for the job, according to an internal Homeland Security Department investigation. In addition, job applicants were not required to show they could identify dangerous objects inside luggage... During classroom training, screeners were given the questions in open-book quizzes and then the answers. The course ended with a closed-book examination of 25 questions. Nineteen of the questions on the final test were identical or virtually identical and three were similar to those on the quizzes."

Massachusetts kids riding the white horse
Boston Globe | Submitted by: dianalily
"Heroin dealers who target children as young as 12 with free samples and drug packets decorated with cartoon characters have spawned an epidemic of illicit heroin use in Massachusetts and New England, which now has the highest rate of illegal drug use among teenagers in the nation... Last month, a former Westford high school teacher was indicted on charges of selling heroin to her teenage students and helping them shoot up in her apartment... Dealers give children two bags of free heroin for every eight they sell in an effort to get them hooked, Menino said. Colombian cocaine cartels, which started showering the Massachusetts market with cheap heroin in the late 1990s, have employed sophisticated marketing tools to target young users, including brightly colored envelopes and brand logos like Batman, cartoon frogs, dynamite, and the Playboy bunny."

Scott tells the story of a friend who slept with a hog. Scott called the next day to taunt him. 'You didn't cuddle with her in the morning, did you?'

Michael Jackson befriends alleged mobster
Hindustan Times | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"Controversy always seems to surround pop icon Michael Jackson. This time speculations are rife about his links with an alleged gangster, Al Malnik. Jackson is rumored to be making friends with Al Malnik, who has been linked with organized crime and is reportedly 'heir' to legendary crime boss of yore, Meyer Lansky, says a report in People News... Forced to throw open the gates of his estate 'Neverland' for cash earlier this year, and embroiled in several court cases that may lead to huge pay-offs, the current state of Jackson's financial affairs is not good. This has led many to speculate that Jacko has been getting some money advice from Malnik. 'The word is that Al is helping Michael get out of debt,' said a source, who confirmed the whole Jackson dynasty has moved in with Malnik."

Roy Horn nearly killed because of woman with big hair
KLAS-TV 8 Las Vegas | Submitted by: Soylent
"Casino mogul Steve Wynn is one of the people who know Siegfried and Roy best. He is one of the duo's closest of friends and hired the illusionists when he built The Mirage in 1990... 'As Roy was leading Montecore out to stage front on a leash, the cat became fascinated and distracted by woman with a big hairdo in the front row. Instead of Montecore going down facing forward with Roy, he did a 90-degree turn and faced sideways towards the woman with the big hairdo. For whatever reason, Montecore was fascinated and distracted by the guest sitting ringside. Montecore got down on all fours and puts his 26-inch head four inches away from of the woman. She thinks this is adorable and part of the show and reaches out to try and rub him under his chin... Roy jumps between the woman and the tiger.'" [Very interesting eyewitness account, particularly if you have a pet cat.]
