Italy: blackmail scheme targets homosexual priests
CWN - July 26, 2011
Italian police have arrested two men who allegedly blackmailed Catholic priests by threatening to disclose the priests’ homosexual activities.
Police say that the extortionists threatened at least a dozen priests in different parts of the country. The priests themselves are not facing criminal charges.
