A Catholic priest in the UK has caused con­tro­ver­sy after telling his con­gre­ga­tion that Jesus Christ had an erec­tion when he died dur­ing cru­ci­fix­ion. Father Thomas McHale, the priest at Our Blessed Lady Immac­u­late church in Black­hill, Con­sett, Coun­ty Durham, made the shock­ing claim dur­ing his Good Fri­day sermon.

The 53-year-old Amer¬≠i¬≠can priest report¬≠ed¬≠ly told the rough¬≠ly 100 parish¬≠ioners that due to the vio¬≠lent method of cru¬≠ci¬≠fix¬≠ion, blood would have rushed to Christ‚Äôs low¬≠er body, result¬≠ing in an erec¬≠tion. A parish¬≠ioner described the church as being ‚Äúshocked‚ÄĚ by the priest‚Äôs ‚Äúvul¬≠gar‚ÄĚ state¬≠ments, espe¬≠cial¬≠ly with young fam¬≠i¬≠lies present.

The dio¬≠cese of Hex¬≠ham & New¬≠cas¬≠tle has inves¬≠ti¬≠gat¬≠ed the com¬≠plaint against Father McHale and found it to be valid, though he has report¬≠ed¬≠ly not lost his job over the incident. 

A spokesman for the dio¬≠cese said ‚ÄúA com¬≠plaint was received and has been inves¬≠ti¬≠gat¬≠ed in keep¬≠ing with our dioce¬≠san com¬≠plaints pol¬≠i¬≠cy. The inves¬≠ti¬≠ga¬≠tion has been very recent¬≠ly com¬≠plet¬≠ed and the com¬≠plaint is upheld.‚ÄĚ

This is not the first con¬≠tro¬≠ver¬≠sy sur¬≠round¬≠ing the use of tech¬≠nol¬≠o¬≠gy and arti¬≠fi¬≠cial intel¬≠li¬≠gence in the Catholic church. In April, a Catholic min¬≠istry had to quick¬≠ly shut down the world‚Äôs first ‚ÄúAI priest‚ÄĚ after it made inap¬≠pro¬≠pri¬≠ate sug¬≠ges¬≠tions, includ¬≠ing bap¬≠tiz¬≠ing a baby in Gatorade. Last year, a pas¬≠tor also caused a stir by out¬≠sourc¬≠ing his entire Sun¬≠day ser¬≠vice to an AI system.

The Catholic church‚Äôs stance on the¬≠o¬≠log¬≠i¬≠cal issues relat¬≠ed to the cru¬≠ci¬≠fix¬≠ion and death of Jesus Christ is a sen¬≠si¬≠tive and com¬≠plex top¬≠ic. Father McHale‚Äôs com¬≠ments, while shock¬≠ing to his con¬≠gre¬≠ga¬≠tion, high¬≠light the ongo¬≠ing debates and dif¬≠fer¬≠ing per¬≠spec¬≠tives with¬≠in the faith. 

As the church con­tin­ues to grap­ple with evolv­ing tech­nolo­gies and chang­ing atti­tudes, inci­dents like this under­score the need for care­ful con­sid­er­a­tion of the­o­log­i­cal inter­pre­ta­tions and their impact on the faithful.
