A member of a Kraków church is planning to sue God, after his news magazine published a recording of a private conversation between herself and her priest.
The woman says that she had a legal right to privacy at her weekly confession, during which she and her priest discussed whether shoplifting might just this once be considered a victimless crime, the road to forgiveness through prayer, and the possibility that Poland’s National Bank might help the current government stay in power in return for a few ministerial sackings.
The tape recording of the conversation was published in Raj Dzisiaj, the weekly news magazine covering heaven and surrounding areas.
A statement from Raj Dzisiaj said that, although the recording was obtained covertly, it was in the public interest to publish.
Speaking exclusively to the Krakowian, Raj Dzisiaj’s editor-in-chief, God, said there were yet more recordings and further disclosures that would be made in the near future.
God said he was sure the recording was accurate, although he would not say who had made it.
He added: “You think this was big news? Just wait until you hear the one about the fornication. It made the good Father’s ears curl.”
