Father Piero Corsi put up a leaflet on his church's notice board in the small seaside town of San Terenzio near La Spezia in northwestern Italy, asserting that 118 women killed by men in Italy in 2012 was caused by the victims themselves. "Is it possible that men have turn crazy all of a sudden? We don't believe so. The point is that more and more women provoke, fall into arrogance, believe [themselves] to be independent and exacerbate tensions," the leaflet read. "Children are left outside alone, homes are dirty, meals are served cold or are fast-food-like, clothing is filthy," Corsi wrote. "They [women] trigger the worst instincts, leading to violence and sexual abuse. They should do a self-examination and think: did we ask for it?"
When confronted about his flyer—I hope someone asked Father Corsi how dead women can do self-examinations—Father Corsi called for the deaths of "liar journalists."
Corsi told Radio Rai: "I don't know if you are a faggot or not but what do you feel when you see a naked woman? Is it not a woman's violence to unveil herself that way?" In La Repubblica newspaper he said his words "had been exploited by liar journalists for whom jail wouldn't be an adequate sentence since they deserve the death penalty."
Corsi's Crazy! But, you know, he's not that much crazier than his boss:
Pope Benedict on Friday signaled the Vatican was ready to forge alliances with other religions against gay marriage, saying the family was threatened “to its foundations” by attempts to change its “true structure.” ... Speaking in the frescoed Clementine Hall of the Vatican's Apostolic Palace, the 85-year-old pope said the family was being threatened by "a false understanding of freedom" and a repudiation of life-long commitment in heterosexual marriage. "When such commitment is repudiated, the key figures of human existence likewise vanish: father, mother, child—essential elements of the experience of being human are lost."
