Colombian priest puts curse on strip-tease show

A Colombian priest has put a curse on a strip-tease show planned for this weekend at a local discotheque, saying the show promotes "adultery, infidelity and other dirty things," officials said on Friday.

Fr Marco Lopez of Santo Tomas, a Caribbean town of about 22,000 people, told a congregation from his pulpit on Sunday that the strip-tease show was an attack against the town's morality.

"The curse applies to those twisted-minded performers and to the audience," Lopez told Reuters.

The curse condemns them to damnation. But Edgar Martinez, one of the organisers of the strip-tease, said his discotheque had the legal right to stage the show on Saturday and Sunday.
