39. This story is stupid and at best third hand
Edited on Wed Dec-07-11 11:35 AM by pschoeb
The Times of India, which has a pretty poor editorial history, is reporting from an article in Bikya Masr, which is an online only "news" site run by an American Joseph Mayton who lives in Cairo, which is reporting on an article in el-Senousa, which I can't even track down what or who publishes this, In fact a search for el-Senousa will just bring up numerous links to this "story" in all the worlds trash publishing.

The story doesn't name the cleric, nor even name what country the cleric is in, just a vague "in Europe". But these kinds of incredibly poorly sourced stories make lots of revenue for trash papers, blogs and forums.
