Wayne Rooney’s career fall-back option: become a priest

Roo reveals his extremely well hidden religious side

Wayne Rooney claims he would have become a priest if he hadn’t have made the grade as a footballer. The Manchester United star said his lack of academic prowess would probably have limited his career options, but his love of religious studies lessons might have pushed him towards a life of institutionalised paedophilia.

He said: “I haven’t a clue what else I could have done. I wasn’t really the best in school. I always enjoyed RE — so maybe a priest.”

OTP can envisage Rooney building strong links with older, female members of the congregation although visiting them in brothels could be frowned upon by his bosses. Also, a nasty habit of being caught shouting the F-word every time a camera points at you could be problematic at baptisms and weddings!

    It’s a joke, Colm. Relax.

    I’m an athiest and no fan of Catholocism, but even I think referring to Priesthood as ‘institutionalised paedophilia’ is astoundingly stupid and offensive. Telling others to relax as it’s a joke doesn’t justify your pathetic attempt at humour.

    For some people it’s hard to see past the tongue-in-cheek nature of this blog!

    Colm and JB84, you two obviously have no sense of humour. Why don’t you try find some Born Again Christian blog to post on. Tards.

    I think by becoming a priest he means becoming a priest of his own religion, Rooneyism. The religion of fights, drunkenness, and girls!

    Jimbo, I did point out that I’m an athiest so I won’t be posting on Born Again Christian blogs. Is the comments section only here for positive feedback or is everyone labelled a ‘tard’ for finding some jokes in poor taste?
