The Power Of Christ Compels You!

Would you buy a used car from this man?

Who knew that people still performed exorcisms? I must have missed that in the church bulletin.

BUCHAREST, Romania (AP) — A former priest began a seven-year jail term Wednesday for murdering a young nun during an exorcism ritual when she was bound, chained to a cross and denied food and water for days.

Irina Cornici, 23, died from dehydration, exhaustion and suffocation during an ordeal that stunned Romania and prompted the Orthodox Church to promise reforms and psychological tests to screen potential clergy.

The former priest, Daniel Corogeanu, and four nuns were all convicted and sentenced in September but Corogeanu was freed pending an appeal, which he lost Tuesday. He was picked up by police in the remote northeast Wednesday and sent to jail.

Cornici, who had previously been treated for schizophrenia, had believed she heard the devil talking to her. Corogeanu and the four nuns decided to try an exorcism ritual in June 2005 using techniques that the Romanian Orthodox Church condemned as “abominable”. (H/TCNN)

The nun was bound, chained to a cross, and denied food and water. Hell, in America the ACLU would consider that art, not torture. Maybe we can move their home office to Romania?
