The Archbishop of Naples, Cardinal Crescenzio Sepe, officially suspended the parish priest of the Santa Maria degli Angeli parish, as it was confirmed two days ago. The cardinal received an anonymous tip about gay sex orgies in the priest’s house. He met the guys, who were all in their 20s and who almost exclusively were in online contact with the priest. The priest already met Sepe on Saturday (18 February), but after a second meeting on Tuesday, his case was referred to the ecclesiastical court which will have to represent the proofs of such accusations. According to Il Mattino, further confirmation for the claims comes from Paolo, a 28-year-old man who said he had contact with the priest. He said he had sex with a priest for money. Paolo says the priest gave him €20, €30 ‘every time we met’. He added that he had not asked the priest for money, it was his initiative to pay.
