ST. OLAV, Norway — The Inner Norwegian Seamen's Church was originally established to secure the moral and religious education of Scandinavian seafarers, but also to give them a “breathing room” where a fellow countryman was available to lend an ear and give some attention.

Porn wasn’t the kind of attention they had in mind, however.

Banking on their good faith in his abilities, a Norwegian webmaster recently charged the Seamen’s Church nearly $13,000 to remove pornography that suddenly appeared on the church’s official website.

Problem is, he’s the one who put it there.

The 39-year-old, who was not named by local officials, originally created the site for the church in September. When pornographic content was found on the site he offered to remove it, but church officials became skeptical when he claimed hackers had infested the site beyond repair and that the $13,000 was merely a deposit to glean the holy pages of smut.

An investigation by local law enforcement discovered the porn had originated from the webmaster’s home computer, according to local press reports.

As a result, the webmaster was sentenced to five months in prison Friday and ordered to pay back the money to the church.
