MAFIA THREATENS PRIEST

From THE MAIL:

Mobsters have dumped the severed head of a pig on the doorstep of a brave crime fighting priest, it emerged yesterday.

Father Ennio Stamile made the grim discovery as he left his house for morning Mass and it was the second time he had been targeted after his car was vandalised last week. Detectives are convinced he is being singled out after he started to regularly condemn the criminal activities of the local mafia known as the 'Ndrangheta during his weekly parish sermons.

The bloodied animal head was found with a piece of cloth stuffed in its mouth outside Father Stamile's home in Cetraro near Cosenza in southern Italy and it is the mob's trademark way of intimidation and convincing people to stop talking.

Father Stamile said: 'Despite all that is happening I will continue my battle against organised crime.'

For putting his life on the line in the battle against evil,
Father Ennio is OCICBW...'s

BRICK OF THE DAY

We also pray that God will protect him.

  1. I don’t quite get the Shop. Rowan as pig-butcher vis-a-vis Nazir-Ali and Carey? O_o

    “Amen!” to your prayer for Fr Stamile.

  2. JCF:

    The mobsters left a pig’s head with a cloth in its mouth on the good priest’s doorstep as a message to him that he should shut up.

    The joke implies that the Lambeth Office press office have sent George Carey a pig’s head with a cloth in its mouth as a message to George to shut up.

    Reference to his recent attacks on the bishops in the Lords.
