PADUA, Italy, Dec. 27 (UPI) -- A woman stole a Padua, Italy, church's Christmas offerings after hypnotizing a 71-year-old priest, police said.
The woman, described as a Roma, or gypsy, about 35, made off with 1,800 euros ($2,736) collected by Padua's Santa Giustina abbey during the Christmas period, the Italian news agency ANSA reported Friday, adding she entered the cloister area of the church where the presence of women is forbidden.
The priest learned of the theft and alerted police after he came out of the hypnosis-induced trance, ANSA said.
Aww, the gypsies took it!.....Oh, on every block there’s a gypsy!
Hypnosis? Is that what they’re calling it when a woman lifts here dress?
I suspect there is a little more to it than hypnosis, the gypsy women learns many wiles.
Hypnosis that’s a useful one, probably see much more of that, if this works for him.
This thing smells a little fishy.
“I’m-a-tellin you, Bishop, that’s-a-how it-a happen. Now, if you excuse-a-me, I gotta go-a perform that exorcism in South France I was a-tellin’ you about...”.
So that's what they call it!
Greater is He within me than he that is in the world.
Applied properly and .... (shutting up at this point)
If only priests were allowed to marry.
That’s the priest’s story about how he “lost” all that money to a woman, and he’s sticking to it.
Maybe got the vapors but definitely not hypnotized.
You said: “Gypsies are thieves. Its the central focus of their entire culture. The only good thing the Nazis ever did was round up and execute any gypsies they could catch.”
Someone has to answer this. The Nazis murdered children. Are they thieves? Much of the problem of Gypsies is that they are subject to discrimination in both education, employment, and housing. The only country that reportedly treats them properly is Spain. Is there a nation without prisons? If you just judge a nation by its bad apples then the Nazis were right to go to war against America.
I don’t think advocacy of genocide is allowed on Free Republic.
Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves!!!
Try getting your facts right. OH and BTW look up the british csmpaign against the Cult of Kali in the 19th century (hint thugee).
Fine. I’ll stand with the gypsies, not with the Hitler-admirers.
Went to see the gypsy stayin’ in a big hotel, he smiled when he saw me coming, and he said “Well, well, well”
Was just about to post that same thought
I know all about the Thugs in India. They have nothing to do with the Gypsies in Europe. Even after the slaves were freed in America, they were still enslaved in Romania.
Are you saying too because there were Thugs in India the British should never have left? They did not let 3 million people starve to death during WWII that the British did with grain to spare. There has not been a mass starvation in India since they departed.
Nice shot at interjecting a total irrelevance and then claiming I said it. Add intellectual dishonesty to your resume
You are the one who injected the Thugs of India into the conversation. I asked a question. I don’t know what your point is. If that is not total irrelevance, what is?
The thug point is that genocide isn’t always wrong. What happened to the Thugs of India was genocide, and only a loon would argue that the world is not a better place without them. Gypsies aren’t quite as extreme, practicing larceny rather than murder and larceny, but if you steal some old folks’ live savings with a scam, you’ve stolen their lives. I loath thieves.
