Priests Furious After Porn Films Shot In Local Parish Church

A furious Austrian Catholic priest has complained to police after discovering a local woman had apparently been using his church as a studio to make porn films.

The priest had been given an anonymous tip-off to tell him that the videos that had been shot inside his church in Hoersching, a region in Upper Austria, had been uploaded on the internet.

And when the parish priest Father Walter had checked, he was horrified to see the interior being used as the set of the 24-year-old local woman's porn films.

The videos show the dark-haired woman initially wearing jeans and a white blouse holding a rosary in one hand and the Bible in the other as the house of God is turned into a house of sin.

Local police confirmed that no permission had been requested or given for the church to be used to shoot the movies which apparently happened in June.

The Diocese of Linz said police are still investigating how the crew and actors were able to get into the church.

Those involved may be charged under Section 189 of the Criminal Code, which prohibits creating "mischief" that is liable to cause legitimate nuisance in a church or religious community. If found guilty they could be imprisoned for up to six months or fined.

The parish is also now trying to work out how to reinstate the dignity of the church. "The sacraments which were celebrated in the past few weeks in the parish church are still considered valid," the diocese said in a statement. But they may still require the local bishop to come and perform a service of purification.
