Romanian Orthodox Bishop Resigns After Gay Sex Tape Comes Out

Corneliu Barladeanu, a bishop in the Romanian Orthodox Church, has resigned after a sex tape showed him “engaging in sexual acts with a male student.” He maintains his innocence, which you might think is a little tough to get away with when there’s video, but the video itself (it’s right here) is pretty grainy.

The statement was issued at the end of a two-day Holy Synod where a sex scandal was discussed for the first time in its 92-year history.

Outrage was heightened as the two cases involved homosexual acts. The church, however, insisted the bishop would have been similarly chastised if the alleged sexual misdemeanors involved a woman.

Only religion could have you asking whether it was a bigger “sin” for a bishop to be caught on tape having sex or that he was allegedly caught with a young man.

This isn’t some fringe group, by the way. The Eastern Orthodox Church ranks below only the Russian Church in terms of members. Barladeanu was one of 53 bishops.
