New York — A nun’s bogus claim that she was choked and raped by a black man has angered – but not surprised – African-American men in her Brooklyn neighborhood.
Detectives combed through East Flatbush investigating the “rape” of Sister Mary Turcotte, a member of the rogue Christian sect Apostles of Infinite Love, which has no affiliation with the Catholic Church.
Turcotte, who is white, claimed she was attacked on the street Thursday by a 6-foot-4, 250-pound black man.
“I don’t know why they must accuse falsely like that. I think it must be prejudice,” said Isaac Dennis, 56, an advertising worker who lives across from the convent.
