Nun Accused Of Stabbing Boy To Teach Him About Jesus  Suffering

A nun in Kysucke Nove Mesto, Slovakia, allegedly stabbed a 7-year-old student, Adam Celko, during a religious education class.

A nun in Kysucke Nove Mesto, Slovakia, allegedly stabbed a 7-year-old student, Adam Celko, during a religious education class.

Sister Ludovita is accused of calling Celko to the front of the class, and jamming a needle in his hand to show him how Jesus felt on the cross, noted the Irish Mirror.

Sister Ludovita was reportedly also trying to show the boy what would happen if he misbehaved.

In response to the alleged incident, Celko's mother, Helena, said:

When Adam got home he had a wound on the back of his hand and when I asked him what had happened he told me the nun had done it. I was completely shocked. I mean, what on earth was she thinking? And with Easter coming I began to worry about what she would do next - crucify one of the students or hammer a nail into their hands?

A spokesperson for the school said in a statement:

We strongly disapprove of this sort of teaching method. When I contacted the Sister she told me that the class had been learning about Jesus Christ and personal sin. She added that the children had been invited to voluntarily experience mild pain so they could empathize with the theme. She said she had invited the pupils to prick themselves if they wanted to but were not forced to. She denies stabbing the boy and says he did it himself. Either way, this is inappropriate behavior and will not be tolerated in this school.

Peter Holbicka, a local priest, added: "The Sister in question has been removed from the school and I shall be taking the matter up with her personally."

In more religious news, a new poll asked Canadians which religions they liked and disliked the most.

The Angus Reid Institute and Dr. Reginald Bibby of the University of Lethbridge polled 3,041 Canadians about faith issues, reports NationalPost.com.

The most popular religious faiths (per people's perceptions) were Roman Catholic, Protestant and Buddhism, while the least popular were Muslim, Mormon and Evangelical Christian.
