A married, elderly Greek Orthodox pastor from New York City resigned from his religious duties last week after a sex tape involving feet, pastries and a younger school principal surfaced.
Pastor George Passias resigned from his position at Manhattan’s Washington Heights’s St. Spyridon Church after multiple porn videos of him with his also married lover Ethel Bouzalas emerged, according to the New York Post. The report also noted the priest impregnated Bouzalas, but it was not revealed how far along she is.
The leaked videos were no standard pornos, the New York Post reported in great detail. The pair indulged in something called “cake crushing,” where Bouzalas sat and gyrated on a Saran Warpped-cake until it was flat as a pancake, while the religious official watched from the corner of the bedroom. In another video, the school principal rubbed her feet on the enthusiastic cleric’s face.
Before the pastor’s bedroom preferences and kinks were revealed to the public, he served as chancellor of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America — he was the leader of all Greek Orthodox priests in America. He then took a job as pastor of St. Spyridon Church, where he served for nine years, according to the New York Post.
The Post reported he has since left all religious duties, and even New York City. (RELATED: Teacher Gets Job Back After Rogue Pizza Party, Internet Celeb Sex Party)
“Please do not ask where I am going and where I will be,” Passias wrote in an email to his congregation obtained by the New York Post. “Then it would not be possible for me to fulfill what is my lot.”
The Post anonymously received the pornos and pictures of the amorous pair last week with a note that said all of the material was downloaded from the cleric’s work computer at the church. The message also mentioned that a private investigator was even hired by an unidentified person to follow Passais and Bouzalas and confirmed they were committing adultery. But the videos prove the love affair went beyond the pale.
The adulterers first grabbed the attention of the public and the media back in 2013 when Bouzalas was quickly promoted to volunteer principal of the church’s parochial school despite not having any credentials for the position. Even in 2013, the duo was described as “inseparable” by many churchgoers, according to the report. People especially raised eyebrows when Peru-native Bouzalas boasted Passais had her wear a bikini when she was baptized into the faith.
It was Bouzalas’s husband, Tom Bouzalas, who finally reported the two to the current chancellor of the Greek Orthodox church of America, Bishop Andonios Paropoulos, back in September. The cheated husband refused to comment to the New York Post, but confirmed he and his wife are still together, and he is aware of both the sex tapes and pregnancy.
“I will now fade out of this world for a considerable time according to God’s will,” Passais wrote in his email. “He has chosen for me. . . that I should retire and follow the way of silence, prayer, fasting, and utter devotion to our Lord.”
