stunnel wants private key for freenode?

I'm using the LXDE spin, and I love LostIRC. Unfortunately, I can't seem to find any built-in support for SSL. Doh! On Freenode, someone suggested creating a tunnel with stunnel. So I downloaded Freenode's key (a .crt file), and used openssl to convert it from DER to PEM.

When I try to connect via stunnel, I get the following error:
SSL_CTX_use_PrivateKey_file: 906D06C: error:0906D06C:PEM routines:PEM_read_bio:no start line
From what I can tell, stunnel's angry at me for not having any private key info in the PEM file. I'm not so hot on cryptography, but isn't a private key supposed to be kept secret by the server that created the public key? Why is stunnel asking for this? Can I make it stop?
