An international catholic blog has launched a scathing attack on Francis Brennan's latest RTE show over a segment that included an Irish priest performing a drag act as Shirley Bassey.
'Francis Brennan's Tour of Vietnam' features 12 travellers, including Fr. Richard Geoghegan, touring the Asian country under the hotelier's guidance.
In Sunday's episode Fr Geoghegan - a parish priest in Carrick on Suir, Co Tipperary - is seen donning a dress, lipstick and a blonde wig before miming a Shirley Bassey hit.
His fellow travellers are bowled over by the performance and Fr Geoghegan later explains: "If you have a talent, why not use that talent because we suppress our talents.
"God himself said 'I've given you the talent, now go forth and use them.' So I think I did that and achieved it."
