Monks Steal Movies

Via Gizmodo U.K.:

The suspicions of Limerick rental shop owner Paul Flynn were raised earlier this year, when a local priest expressed an opinion about Oscar-winning historical drama Lincoln. When questioned about how he had managed to watch it seeing as the film wasn’t yet in cinemas or out to rent, the priest said “…we have a film club once a week and we watched it up at the monastery.”

When pushed by the investigative local business owner, the priest also confessed to multiple additional counts of pirating films before their commercial release,
