Crucified nun dies in exorcism

A Romanian nun has died after being bound to a cross, gagged and left alone for three days in a cold room in a convent, Romanian police have said.
Members of the convent in north-east Romania claim Maricica Irina Cornici was possessed and that the crucifixion had been part of an exorcism ritual.
Cornici was found dead on the cross on Wednesday after fellow nuns called an ambulance, according to police.
A priest and four nuns were charged with imprisonment leading to death.

Police say the 23-year-old nun, who was denied food and drink throughout her ordeal, had been tied and chained to the cross and a towel pushed into her mouth to smother any sounds.

A post-mortem is to be carried out, although initial reports say that Cornici died from asphyxiation.

The term, “corruptor of the world” is taken from the Quran, the Muslims’ holy book, and ranks among the highest on the scale of an individual’s criminal offenses. Under Iran’s Islamic Penal Code, it carries a death penalty.

Il documentario della BBC trasmesso in Inghilterra nel 2006 sugli scandali dei Preti & Pedofilia. Si richiama il “Crimen Sollicitationis” e un documento di Ratzinger che rinnova il divieto a testimoniare in tribunali civili (pena la scomunica) per reati di abusi sessuali che avessero coinvolto religiosi. In Italia non è mai andato in onda, nè i giornali nè gli altri mezzi di informazione vi hanno fatto accenno. (traduzione di Bispensiero.it)
