The Catholic Taliban

The Italian government has given the mayors of their towns new powers to help them crack down on crime and ‘anti-social’ behavior. So what does the mayor of the seaside town of Castellammare di Stabia want to use these powers for? To ban mini-skirts, low-cut jeans, sunbathing, playing football in public places, and blasphemy.

Of course, a local Catholic priest approves, because when it comes to upholding the highest standards of morality, the Catholic Church is the first institution that comes to mind, no?

    In the same town of 65,000, a major world-wide renowned shipyard is about to close. Hundreds of workers (many highly skilled) will be laid off. All of this in a underdeveloped area of the country, where it’s hard to find a job even in the good times, let alone during a recession. You’d think that the major of this town would have other things to worry about.
