Catholic Priest Claims 'Arrogant,' 'Self-Sufficient' Women Incite Domestic Violence

Piero Corsi, Italian Priest, Says 'Provocative' Women To Blame For Spate Of Domestic Violence (VIDEO)

An Italian priest found himself embroiled in a national controversy this week after a Christmas bulletin he posted in his church went viral.

Perio Corsi's flier, entitled “Women and femicide – healthy self-criticism. How often do they provoke?” claimed that women in Italy may be to blame for a spate of domestic violence attacks, Raw Story notes. Members of the priest's congregation then posted the text on the Internet:

How often do we see girls and mature women going around scantily dressed and in provocative clothes?

They provoke the worst instincts, which end in violence or sexual abuse. They should search their consciences and ask: did we bring this on ourselves?

The flier went on to decry "increasingly provocative," "arrogant" and "self-sufficient" women who abandon their children, don't clean their houses and serve cold meals.

Corsi is the leader of a church in the small parish of San Terenzo in northwest Italy, according to The Journal.

The Daily Beast's Barbie Latza Nadeau notes that this year 120 women have been killed in domestic disputes in the European nation, "a third more than last year." In fact, the problem has even caught the attention of the United Nations Human Rights Council, which urged the country to take action last June.

As calls for the priest to resign intensified, Euronews reported that Corsi issued an apology, only to quickly take it back. He also used an anti-gay slur when debating a reporter from Rai Radio, L'Huffington Post reports.

Men are weak brutes according to most

That was more of a disbelieving laugh.

Why is it always the evil of women and not the fault of the men.

Yes, yes, better to have a world full of dependant, subserviant , brainless, shoeless twits.

How far you go in life depends on your being: tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of both the weak and strong.  Because someday in life you would have been one or all of these.  GeorgeWashingtonCarver

Quoting GLWerth:

Of course, he doesn't speak for the church...after all, he's only a priest, they don't speak for the church.

Once again, I wonder why anyone would follow this church, given its stances on most everything. Do some women enjoy seeing other women abused? Or do they believe that women who get smacked around "had it coming".

Ok, that first part was sarcasm, right?


I don't understand why anyone, especially a woman, would want to be part of this church either.

Yes, the first part was sarcasm. :)

good grief...

Some people are idiots.  This priest is no exception I'm sure.

The putrid catholics shouldn't be opening their soiled filthy mouths about anything. They might want to look in the mirror before  trying to pass the blame, that is in reality, their own filthy disgusting selves.
