    Munich, Germany - A priest got more than he bargained for during confession when a man not only declared his sins, but also handed over a machine gun and a hand grenade, police in Bavaria said on Tuesday.

    He also gave the priest a cardboard box with a clown's face and the words "Red Nose Day March 26, 2004" on it containing 34 cartridges of 7.65 mm. caliber," police said in a statement.

    Now I've heard that confession is good for the soul, but............... :eek:

    This reminds me of a situation in a Lutheran church in Minnesota, where my wife's cousin is one of the pastors. He preached on "Thou shalt not steal" and put "No Questions Asked" boxes around the church building for people to deposit things they had stolen. The boxes filled up with a wide variety of things as well as money!

    I guess it would have been hard to put a reputation in one of those boxes, however!
