Religious Hypocrisy 2.0

Here is a disturbingly humorous story from yesterday’s TGCOM, a nightly news program in Italy. A Catholic priest was stopped for drunk driving, his license revoked because his blood-alcohol level was 0.3% higher than legally allowed. His defense? “I celebrated four masses today!” Nor did he stop there. “I am a non-drinker,” he added. The poor priest, forced by his vocation to drink that horrible stuff, wine.

Here’s the punch line, though. His lawyers are the same lawyers that helped get an imam off the same hook a few days ago. The imam in question was stopped by police with 1% blood-alcohol content (higher than the priest’s!). His defense? “The Koran forbids drinking alcohol. It must be my asthma medication.”

And he got his license back!

  1. As long as illiterate people blindly ‘obey’ the koran, there will always be disharmony on planet earth.

  2. I’ve been browsing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It
    is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as
    you did, the internet will be a lot more
    useful than ever before.
