A pop star named from Norway named Tooji has just come out in a NSFW music video for his latest single, “The Father Project“. With the release of the song he tweeted, “My new video Father is out and so am I.” The video has created quite a stir because it takes place in an actual Catholic church that had been rented out and by the end of the video, two men (one of which is a priest) are having sex in front of everyone. The Bishop of Oslo released an angered statement about the video:
“No matter what the video’s message might be or who the artist might be, footage of intimate scenes in front of the altar is unacceptable, and it is an abuse of the church. I was informed about the matter after they decided to rent out Frogner Church and had done the shoot. No matter what the content of the video might be, it is not acceptable to perform these types of scenes in front of the altar. It is a misuse of the holy room of the church.
A scene shot between a man and a woman would also be unacceptable. What has happened breaks several rules of the church. Besides this, I would not comment any further on the matter.”
