Brazilian bishop resigns after video shows him ‘half-naked’ on call with man

Pope Francis accepted the resignation of the Brazilian bishop of the Diocese of São José do Rio Preto after a video leaked to the media showed him half-naked in a video call with another man.

As announced by the Vatican press office on August 18, Bishop Tomé Ferreira da Silva stepped down and Archbishop Moacir Silva, the metropolitan of Ribeirão Preto, was appointed apostolic administrator of the diocese while the see is vacant.

Local media outlet Diário da Região reported that a video emerged online on August 13, showing Bishop Ferreira da Silva in a compromising position during a video call with another man.
