Church of England has been dragged into a new scandal, following 64-year-old Rev Stennett Kirby, Vicar of West Ham Parish Church in Stratford, being captured in a video smoking crack, snorting cocaine and discussing prostitutes and pornography with a friend at his church-owned home.
In the 1 min 48 sec video, the Church of England Vicar spoke to a friend before smoking what is considered to be a highly-addictive Class A drug, and then separately snorting what appeared to be a powdered cocaine.
His friend then says: “You’re happy now, innit?” The clergy replies: “I’m a very happy man. I love it.”
The Church of England Vicar, who is on sick leave then went on to discuss hiring a female escort. ‘All I want now is for a woman sucking my d**k, that would have been really nice. How much would a woman cost to come here?’
“I wish I could. If I had money, I would. I’ve only got £10 left.”
‘In other words, if I really want it I’ll pay for it. One day, I’ll pay to watch you f**k’ he said.
Talking about traveling to Central London the next day, the Church of England Vicar who lives in a £1.5million house which belongs to the Church’s Diocese of Chelmsford, and has been a Vicar of the 12th-century church since 2007, further said; “I’m going to Soho with my mate for dinner. I’m going to sex shops to get some poppers.”
The Sun reported that when his friend told him he prefers prostitutes to having a relationship, unmarried Mr Kirby agreed. Mr Kirby, known by his middle name Roger, says: “It’s too much hassle, that’s what I told you about women.”
Later his friend asked him: “Shall I make you a cocaine spliff?” Mr Kirby replies: “If you don’t mind.”
