Swedish pastor wore porn T-shirt

STOCKHOLM, Sweden, Dec. 15 (UPI) -- Church officials in Sweden are pondering what to do about a Stockholm-area pastor who allegedly put photos of himself wearing a porn-themed T-shirt on Facebook.

The minister, whose name was not reported, was supervising a group of Swedish teenagers on a trip to France when he wore the T-shirt with the word "Fabodjantan" -- the name of a 1970s porn film that translates roughly as "cowshed wench" -- above a subheading that said "Akta svensk hardporr" or "Real Swedish hardcore porn," The Local reported Tuesday.

Word of the pastor's attire reached the Stockholm Diocese of the Church of Sweden in late November. The person who complained found the T-shirt "extremely inappropriate clothing for someone representing the Church of Sweden."

The Local said the pastor, who could not be reached for comment, has been notified of the complaint and has until Jan. 5 to respond to the diocese.

Diocesan spokeswoman Annika Sjoqvist Platzer told The Local if the pastor is found to have violated church rules, he could be suspended from leading sermons, put on probation or given a written warning.
