Unfaithful priest fired

A vicar in Florø, Norway, was fired on Monday after having an affair with a female member of the congregation when being married to another woman.

The vicar, who is in his 30s, was fired after a recommendation from the Bishop, Ole D. Hagesæther.

The vicar worked in a congregation in Nordfjord. As his relationship with the woman became known to the public in January, the Bishop told newspaper BT that a priest in the Norwegian state church could not have a life style that conflicts with what one is to expect from a priest.

"In this position he will have to live and teach God's word. As a priest and guide his relationship to this woman is unacceptable and it has been going on over time", said the Bishop.

The vicar held his last service in the congregation in January and has been off sick since.
