Priest 'had sex in church'


Parishers in a Romanian village are protesting about their new priest - because he allegedly had sex in a church.

Villagers at Rastoaca, in Vrancea county, organised a street demonstration and stopped priest Marian Trusca from entering their church.

Parishioner Dumitru Chirita told Evenimentul Zilei newspaper: "We can never accept this man as our priest.

"We know he was transferred for disciplinary reasons from another village because he had sex on the altar with the school's secretary."

The priest denies the allegations but the villagers are adamant and church officials are now reviewing the appointment.
