Religion Nuns Exist, and They Molest People

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!)
