Jury convicts priest of nun's 1980 murder

I think that violates the rules of the Bible there padre.

A priest was convicted Thursday of stabbing a Roman Catholic nun to death as she prepared for Easter services at a hospital 26 years ago, a murder prosecutors say was steeped in religious ritual.

I went to Catholic classes when I was a child because my parents really, really wanted me to fear God and the little I do remember other than the fact that priests and nuns are deeply unhappy individuals did not include a ritual involving stabbing a woman of the cloth to death. Unless I was sick that day.

Sister Margaret Ann Pahl was stabbed 31 times through an altar cloth, with the punctures forming an upside down cross. Her killer then anointed her with a smudge of her blood on the forehead to humiliate her in death, prosecutors said.

Sounds like someone needs to go to confession...and a mental institution.

The Rev. Gerald Robinson, now 68, had worked closely with Sister Pahl at the Mercy Hospital chapel, where her body was discovered on April 5, 1980.

Let this be a lesson to all of you who go for that whole God-speaks-through-priests-and-nuns hooplah. It's bullshit, unless of course God really hated Miss. Pahl. It's a sad world and this is just a reminder that even priests are human, which of course, makes them just as evil as the rest of us.
