The Catholic Church has been engulfed in a new scandal following the discovery of thousands of priests trapped in a closet.

The closet was found as the result of an independent investigation - despite claims by the Catholic Church that it didn't hold any priests.

Amazingly, despite being trapped in the closet, many of the priests were still able to be heard voicing their opposition to gay marriage. And, despite the discovery, many of them are refusing to come out.

The Catholic Church has denied forcing the priests into the closet. "It's a perfectly normal place to be," a Vatican spokesman said. "After all, most of our business takes place behind closed doors."
