Pr0n-surfing pastor downs church network

Nasty case of the clap

Providing a secure and efficient Helpdesk

A church minister from Strängnäs, Sweden, has walked the plank after his local church's computer network contracted a nasty case of the clap as a result of his porn surfing, The Local reports.

The Church of Sweden clergyman admitted to "spending a lot of time at work viewing pornographic websites", but his lust for smut would probably have remained known only to him and his God had it not "given rise to a lethal computer virus" which smote the parish's IT systems.

Archbishop Anders Wejryd said: "Priests are people too, but I have no understanding at all for someone sitting and surfing for porn on the parish computers." Church legal spokeswoman Charlotta Novosel confirmed: "He recently decided to resign."

The powers that be have not yet decided whether a righteous defrocking is in order in this case - a fate avoided by a pastor in Gothenburg who recently "came under scrutiny for moistening post-it notes with his penis and sticking them up in an office" and was allowed to keep his job. ®

Bootnote

The usual ta very much to Mike Richards for the tip-off. Mike notes: "Monday morning and despite the economic bust there's comforting news that the world is still weird."
