¬†A judge in Chile has sentenced a Catholic priest to recite psalms each day for three months as punishment for a traffic violation. Judge Manuel Perez said he issued the unusual sentence after Father Jose Cornejo said he could not afford the £50 fine that would have been the usual sanction for illegal parking in the city of Puerto Montt. "He will have to recite seven psalms from a book in the Old Testament," Judge Perez told the Santiago daily La Tercera. "This is not a sentence that just occurred to me," he said. "I did it as a tribute to Galileo, one of the greatest scientists of all time, who received a similar sentence from the Catholic Church during three years for saying the Earth rotates around the sun."
