    Priests should serve as role models for good words and actions. I watched the video many times and there is no hesitance at all from the priest to put down the reputation of the girl.Who is he to judge? Now, he wants to apologize since the video is all over the world.What about if there was no video, would he be sorry, too? I doubt it…How can we get in touch with the church leader?
