An Italian husband returned home early from work to find his wife in bed with their local priest.

Following the shock discovery, the man stormed into the local bishop’s office in Chioggia, near Venice, and demanded an explanation. Later police were called to calm him down.

Details of the incident in Chioggia near Venice emerged on Sunday in Italian newspapers and the local bishop Angelo Daniel has now confirmed that the adulterous priest has been sent to another parish for “reeducation”.

The 53-year-old priest was described as a specialist on the Bible and had been a good friend of the couple.

The husband, 39, and his wife, 37, have two children.

Bishop Daniel added: “I have always respected the priest in question and I will continue to respect him. You cannot discount all the good a person has done in their life just because of one mistake.”

  1. “The 53-year-old priest was described as a specialist on the Bible and had been a good friend of the couple.”

    Good friend?

    Yep.

  2. There is a superb line here…just can’t think of it!

    Wow…. what a friend. I wonder what that “reeducation” will consist of…..

  4. reeducation…well, he is already a specialist in the Bible. So I guess they need to teach him how to be a friend and not like the husband find out.

  5. Specialist on the Bible, huh? Well I guess knowing and practicing are two different things.

    “I have always respected the priest in question and I will continue to respect him. You cannot discount all the good a person has done in their life just because of one mistake…,”

    I just can’t accept that comment when it comes to a situation like this. I mean the man is a priest, a supposed spiritual leader, who is supposedly called to a higher place; a sort of shepherd. In him is put an extensive amount of unfathomable trust. No measure of “reeducation…” makes right what happened here. The church would be wise to strip him of his title and remove him from church leadership.

  6. TO GIVE UR LIFE TO SERVE THE ALL MIGHTY, DOSENT COME WITH EXTRA PRIVLEDGES..TOO BAD CASTERATIONS ISNT LAWFULL….
