CATHOLIC PRIESTS OUTRAGED AS MINISTER INVADES THEIR TURF

A Brooklyn minister allegedly shook a 13-year-old boy from his sleep and raped him as the teen cried for help, authorities said yesterday.

The Rev. Donald Jean, 35, was arrested Monday night - two days after his Flatbush parishioners alerted cops to the alleged abuse, authorities said.

A law enforcement source said the boy was sexually assaulted six times between April 1 and 13 at Jean's Carnarsie home.

"The pastor woke the boy up" and then raped him, the source said.

"He told him to stop," the source added, but Jean allegedly continued to rape him. Later, the preacher warned the boy not to talk or God would "cripple him," said a police source.

IF YOU THINK THIS IS FUNNY, WAIT TILL YOU HEAR THE ONE ABOUT THE NAZI POPE

SUFFER THE LITTLE CHILDREN

In his early years in office, Ratzinger moved to stamp out vestiges of liberation theology, a current of Catholic thought born in the 1960s that emphasized grass-roots organization to free people from poverty.

THE FIRST SUPPER

The new pope asked cardinals to dine together on bean soup, cold cuts, a salad and fruit, Meisner said. The nuns who prepare their meals didn't have time to plan a special menu, so there were only two special treats -- ice cream and champagne.

THIS WEEK'S WINNER

A Manhattan high-school teacher slept with her student for months and got pregnant with his child — but gave him only a barely passing 65 in social-studies class, according to a bombshell report obtained by The Post.

The 18-year-old boy toy from the HS for Health Professions and Human Services shrugged off the grade, but couldn't forgive his teacher, Rhianna Ellis, 25, for reneging on her promise to abort the pregnancy.

The details of the sordid 10-month affair — which included romps at a Queens motel and "one last time" in Ellis' Queens home — were chronicled in a recent letter from Special Schools Investigator Richard Condon to Chancellor Joel Klein.

WHO WRITES THESE HEADLINES?

Open-and-Shut Case for Colon

By Mike DiGiovanna, Times Staff Writer

From the start of Cactus League play in early March, Manager Mike Scioscia aligned his rotation so Bartolo Colon would pitch tonight's season opener against Texas, and it wasn't only because the right-hander is the closest thing the Angels have to an ace on a staff that for years has lacked a dominant starter.

PLUCK ME IF I CAN FIGURE THIS ONE OUT

Okla. Inmate Captured After 11 Years on Lam with Warden's Wife

A convicted killer who escaped from prison almost 11 years ago with the wife of the assistant warden has been found following a tip generated by the show "America's Most Wanted." The wife was located nearby, the FBI said.

The inmate, Randolph Dial, was arrested in a mobile home about 6:30pm Monday in Shelby County, Texas.

The assistant warden's wife, Bobbi Parker, was found a short time later working at a chicken ranch elsewhere in the county, FBI agents said.

Parker, described by the FBI as an endangered missing person, was not arrested.

"As far as I know, she has no intention of leaving," Shelby County sheriff Newton Johnson said late Monday. "She said she wants to stay on the farm and raise chickens."

It was unclear whether Bobbi Parker had remained with Dial for all of the past years.

They managed five large chicken houses in a rural area less than 15 miles from the Louisiana border, the "Oklahoman" newspaper reported.

IF YOU CAN'T DO THE TIME, DON'T SELL THE TIME?

Former Warminster Police Chief Sentenced for Theft

The former police chief in Warminster (Bucks County), Pa. is headed to prison after admitting that he stole from the township.

James Gorczynski, a man charged with upholding the law, was led from the courtroom in handcuffs after pleading guilty to stealing more than $130,000.

Prosecutors say he sold "comp" time he never accrued to other cops for between $5 and $6 an hour.

He also stole from the drug forfeiture fund and the special investigations unit.

Prosecutor David Zellis says he violated the public’s trust and lost the law enforcement community's respect:

"During his tenure at Warminster he was called the chief. Now in the Bucks County Prison, he’s going to be called a thief.”

Before being sentenced to 1-2 years behind bars, Gorczynski offered an apology, saying family problems and mounting bills drove him to steal.

He has also been ordered to pay back the money.
