The vicar of Church of England, 64-year-old Rev. Stennett Kirby, has been allegedly caught inhaling cocaine from crack pipe and watching pornographic movies.
Rev Kirby smoked the highly-addictive Class A drug and snorted cocaine in shocking scenes at his church-owned home, while saying “I’m a happy man. I want a hooker.”
The Church of England has, however, reacted to the footage, saying they are carrying out thorough investigation. A spokesperson said, “We are taking this matter seriously.”
The respected community figure also watched porn, and chatted about escorts and a trip to Soho to buy liquid chemical poppers, which gives users a head rush.
A footage obtained by The Sun, UK, yesterday shows Rev. Kirby spark up his crack pipe as he relaxes on a sofa with a pal.
His friend then said, “You’re happy now, innit?” The Reverend replied, “I’m a very happy man. I love it.”
He is seen staring at a TV, apparently watching porn, and adds: “It f***ing turns me on when I have this and I watch that.”
Kirby, who is the vicar of West Ham Parish Church in East London since 2007, then makes a crude mouth-action reference and refers to women in a lewd way.
The vicar and his pal also discuss ‘hiring a Follow’ and he says: “I wish I could. If I had money, I would. I’ve only got £10 left.”
When his friend told him he prefers prostitutes to having a relationship, unmarried Mr Kirby — on sick leave from work — agrees.
Kirby, known by his middle name, Roger, says: “It’s too much hassle, that’s what I told you about women.”
Later his pal asks him: “Shall I make you a cocaine spliff?” Mr Kirby replies: “If you don’t mind.”
As music plays, the vicar reveals he is planning a trip to central London the next day. He says: “I’m going to Soho with my mate for dinner. I’m going to sex shops to get some poppers. Possession is not illegal.”
In other footage, Mr Kirby, whose brother is a minister, can be seen snorting coke.
His pal said taking it off the back of his hand is easier. Seconds later, Mr Kirby says approvingly: “That is good.”
