Even bishops aren't free from sex tape scandals.

Former Romanian Orthodox Church Bishop Corneliu Barladeanu, 51, got caught with his pants down on tape after a tape was released showing him erotically involved with a male student.

He promptly resigned from his position saying it was "for the peace and good of the church."

Despite there being actual visual evidence, according to the Washington Post, he maintains his innocence.

The Romanian Orthodox Church opposes homosexuality.

For now Barladeanu will continue his service to the church as a monk while his illicit acts are investigated, the Associated Press reports.

The Church insists Bishop Barladeanu would have been reprimanded the same way had his behavior involved a woman.

In response to the scandal the church blamed the media.

According to the AP they said this situation was due to “an aggressive campaign of some media outlets aimed against the Romanian Orthodox Church, often with the complicity of some errant priests.”

“All believers,” the statement reads, “should respect the discipline of the church and permanently renew their spiritual lives.”
