“‘Wizard arrested for raping Buddhist’”
Crazy headline from Beijing Evening News.
“…the most eye catching story in the whole paper is buried on page ten, headlined ‘Sly and despicable method of rape – “fortune teller” arrested’. The English website of the Global Times translated it a little more colorfully: ‘Wizard arrested for raping Buddhist’. This is the English article:
Police arrested a self-claimed sorcerer in Shijingshan district, who exorcised demons in exchange for sex, the Beijing Evening News reported yesterday. The district prosecutor’s office is pressing a rape charge against the man, surnamed Kang.
Kang met one of his victims, surnamed Ma, in February in Badachu, a temple area in western Beijing. He told her she was possessed and that the way to be cleansed of the demon was to have sex with him. Ma, a Buddhist, believed him. Ma’s family called police when they found she was going to see Kang for a second time.
