Priest crucifies nun: Romanian Orthodox priest Father Daniel Corogeanu and four nuns have been charged with murder after ordering another nun who was ‘possessed by the devil’ and ‘beyond salvation’ to be crucified. The nun, Maricica Irina Cornici, was found dead and chained to a cross last Wednesday. A member of the Holy Trinity order in the village of Tanacu, Sister Irina reportedly was imprisoned after arguing with the priest during a Sunday mass.
