The priest, who was filmed at North Cork’s St Bartholomew’s Church in the Republic of Ireland, has been temporarily removed from the ministry during the time of his ‘personal leave’, Irish Mirror reports. After the footage emerged in May of a man wearing priest vestments performing sexual acts with another man, the local police started to investigate the case. It was revealed that he suffered from mental health disorders and probably some addictions. “When the video came to public attention he suffered a lot of adverse attention and in discussions with his bishop it was decided he would take time out,” the report continues, adding that people were left devastated with such a scandal. While the acts in the pictures appeared to be consensual, they were being considered sacrilegious because of what the priest was wearing and the location. “When the video came to public attention he suffered a lot of adverse attention and in discussions with his bishop it was decided he would take time out,” the report goes on, “This has been a major scandal in the area and people are devastated by it all.”
