From the fluffy bed into the fire.

United States: A Roman Catholic priest has received a four year sentence after being convicted of sexually assaulting a teenage boy. The sentence is on top of a 14 year one he has already received for sexually assaulting two other boys. The priest, named only as "Evans" in the Rocky Mountain News told the court:

I am a believer in the power of touch. I believe it is very scriptural. Jesus often touched people he was not supposed to touch.

The boy had been sent to the priest for counselling after his parents found books on witchcraft in his bag.
