Priest calls women to 'self-examination' for femicide


Turin, December 26 - A flyer displayed on a church
bulletin board by a priest in the northern region of Liguria,
and then subsequently posted on the social network Facebook by
outraged members of the congregation, has caused an uproar for
allegedly "encouraging" violence against women.
The priest from the San Terenzo church in the town of
Lerici, father Piero Corsi, entitled the leaflet "Women and
femicide - healthy self-criticism. How often do they provoke?".
The lengthy discussion written by Corsi asks if men are
just "randomly crazy, or are they pushed?".
"The fact is that women are increasingly the cause...and
end up exacerbating tensions by leaving children to themselves,
keep dirty houses, put cold dishes on the table, buy fast food
and provide filthy clothes. So if a family goes to the dogs and
is pushed to crime (violence must be condemned and punished
firmly) often the responsibilities are shared".
The bulletin also examines sexual violence against women,
noting that women and girls often "go around dressed
Maria Gabriella Carnieri Moscatelli, president of the
Italian emergency hotline Telefono Rosa said on Wednesday that
the flyer was a "true instigation to violence against women" and
called for both Premier Mario Monti and Pope Benedict XVI to
speak out against the message.
According to the association, sexual violence causes more
fatalities among women in Italy than cancer and is most often
committed by a spouse or former partner.
"Italy has the highest percent of femicide in Europe...a
message like this (by Corsi) is unacceptable," Moscatelli said.
