Villagers back sex phone line priest


A Croatian church congregation is refusing to attend mass until their priest, sacked for ringing a phone sex line, is reinstated.

Villagers are backing Father Ljubomir Simunovic who insists he was tricked into calling a sex line operator who asked him for guidance.

He rang up a 16,000 bill after spending hours on the phone at peak times with the woman helping her to pray for deliverance.

Father Simunovic said: "I had no idea she was working on a sex hotline, I didn't even know such a thing existed.
