Nuns Exist, and They Molest People

posted by on November 14 at 14:55 PM

Unlike Savage and Wagner—who both had Catholic upbringings and are forever in possession of baroque metaphors for everything, not to mention rich opinions of popes and nuns and such—I find the Catholic church boring. For the longest time I didn’t believe nuns existed. They always seemed like a thing Hollywood invented. I think because of Sister Act. Anyway, we got a Slog tip this morning about a certain nun who did a very bad thing, but I ignored it because, again, this is not my area. But then we got another Slog tip about this nun, and another, and another—all just links to the same story:

A Roman Catholic nun pleaded no contest yesterday to two counts of indecent behavior with a child in connection with accusations from the 1960s when she was a principal and teacher at a Catholic school in Milwaukee.

The nun, Norma Giannini, 79, faces up to 20 years in prison for what prosecutors say was sexual abuse of two male students

See? I thought all nuns were lesbians. I’m more confused than ever.

(Hat tip to everyone!)

Um. While one might be accurate in saying that law-breaking RC priests tend to be child molesters, most nuns are not.

We've all heard about the rapist nun
She pulled the switch on everyone
The altar boys? They're not having fun
And the papacy is drawing up the papers behind closed doors

@5 - She would have been in her 30s. This confirmed Catholic says, "pass the ruler!"

Also, the Italians and Germans are big on nun porn. But, then again, what kinda porn aren't they into?

Hate to say this, but isn't there a statute of limitations? I could see if they'd been hunting her for 30 years, but the guy just came forward in 1992.

Or has Law and Order:SVU been lying to me...?
