Brazilian bishop resigns after 'explicit video of him performing a x act on himself' leaks on the internet


A Brazilian bishop resigned days after a video that featured someone, purported to be him, masturbating leaked online.



On Wednesday, August 18, Pope Francis accepted the resignation of Bishop Tomé Ferreira da Silva, who oversaw a diocese in Sao Paulo state, Sao Jose do Rio Preto.



According to reports, Bishop Tome had been under investigation by the Vatican for other accusations, including allegedly ignoring reports of ----xual abuse in his diocese since 2015.



The Vatican, the Brazilian bishops' conference, and Ferreira's home diocese all announced the resignation but provided no details if the bishop was the man in the video.



The person in the video resembles Ferreira, and local paper Diario da Regiao reported that in a short interview Ferreira confirmed it is his image, without providing further detail.Latest Post
