Bless me father, for I have Kings

Bless me father, for I have Kings

Tuesday, 6 October 2009

The poker world is a broad church, taking in people from all points on the social spectrum. Even accounting for this, few can have expected to see a Roman Catholic priest on a televised poker event in the USA.

Father Andrew Trapp will be appearing on Fox’s Million Dollar Challenge after beating 10,000 other online hopefuls in a qualifying tournament. He then had to produce a You Tube clip and impress producers in order to seal his place in the event.

Father Trapp, who will be competing in his priestly garb, will be hoping to win the big prize but has confirmed that he won’t be making any personal gain from his appearance. Anything he does win will go towards an extension of his church.

He also reassured parishioners concerned about gambling saying that “in Catholicism, the “sinfulness” of playing games of chance is a “matter of moderation.”
