Pope Francis: Priests and nuns watching pornography


Pope Francis admitted while speaking with seminarians in Rome on Monday.

‘Internet porn was a ‘vice’ shared between members of the church. Priests and nuns watch internet porn, it is a vice that many people have, many laymen, many laywomen, and also priests and nuns,’ said the 85-year-old Pope.

– Pope Francis said he was concerned about porn while speaking with seminarians in Rome, telling them on Wednesday that ‘the Devil gets in that way’.

‘The Devil gets in that way. And I’m not just talking about criminal pornography like that involving the abuse of children, that is already degeneration. But pornography that is a little “normal”‘, he continued.

He cautioned priests and nuns, saying: ‘Dear brothers, be careful about this.’

The Pope made the remarks on Monday, according to ANSA.

– Catholic priests and nuns are forbidden from watching pornography, defining sexual imagery as an ‘offence against chastity’

In 2020, Pope Francis’ Instagram account appeared to ‘like’ a racy photo of a Brazilian bikini model dressed in stockings and suspenders.

The model, Natalie Garibotto, said the pontiff’s verified Franciscus account was among the thousands that liked the October 5 image.

But the account subsequently ‘unliked’ the photo, shortly before the Vatican said it was launching an inquiry. ‘

At least I’m going to heaven,’ Natalie joked after the incident drew attention on social media.

The Brazilian model’s management said Garibotto had ‘received the Pope’s official blessing’.

Catholic priests and nuns are forbidden from watching pornography, with the Catechism defining sexual imagery as an ‘offence against chastity’ under article 2354.
