If you believe in the sanctity of the priest’s religious vows, the relationship between Andrew Scott's Hot Priest and Phoebe Waller-Bridge's Fleabag is not actually victimless at all, says Ruth Graham. But, she adds, "disapproving of a character’s behavior is not the same thing as disapproving of a television show. And in fact, mainstream Catholic objections to the show’s handling of the problematic priest are hard to find. Peter Stanford, a former editor of the Catholic Herald, concluded in a recent column that the complex relationship between the two leads is a 'sympathetic—and arguably much needed—portrait of what it really is to be a Catholic priest.' The behavior of a fictional priest can pose no greater threat to the Catholic Church than the behavior of many of its real ones. Scott himself has spoken of being 'damaged' by the church. The 'hot priest' may struggle with his vows, but he is also compassionate, respectful, energetic, and a true believer. The priesthood has had plenty of worse representatives."
