Greek Orthodox priest forced to resign because of "cake porn" sex tapes

This is definitely one of the more… bizarre stories we've read in a while.

A Greek Orthodox priest has been forced to resign after video emerged showing him kissing his lover's toes while she wears a thong and sits on a loaf of banana bread.

Which is, apparently, a very specific fetish.

The scandal has said to have impacted congregation numbers at his church, where Passias - who was once the chancellor of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America - had ordered the female parishioners to cover their hair during confession. He has also been accused of misusing church funds.

Passias, 67, is already married with four children (which the Greek Orthodox church permits) and had denied his affair with the woman in the video, who is over 20 years younger than him.

But suspicions arose when footage emerged of him baptising the woman in the video - while she was wearing only a bikini.

After years of denying the rumours, it seems the videos were a step too far and the church suspended him. Last week in an email, Passias said he was leaving for “personal and health reasons”, and confessed to “multitudinous sins and shortcomings”.

“I will now fade out of this world for a considerable time according to God’s will,” he wrote. “He has chosen for me...that I should retire and follow the way of silence, prayer, fasting, and utter devotion to our Lord...Please do not ask where I am going and where I will be. Then it would not be possible for me to fulfill what is my lot."
