Evangelist pastor, the Reverend Howard Curtis, 73, of the Coulsdon Christian Fellowship in South London, is accused of spanking the bottoms of naked women in order to cast out evil spirits. No doubt the Croydon Crown Court jury will decide the man’s guilt or innocence? Perhaps this is a case of: ‘The devil makes work for idle hands!’ Speaking as an irreligious atheist, I have on occasion been known to spank lovers bare bottoms, and receive the same consideration, but I had no idea evil spirits actually resided in butts? Having said that, I have no objection to indulging in a threesome with an evil spirit, providing it turns up with a bottle of holy communion wine! More tea vicar?
