Fr Kelly said that some people pointed out that that card could have been construed as a death threat as John the Baptist was beheaded. Read More: Shock as Fr. Fr Kelly said the situation came to a head at the end of January when he received a phone call from a man asking to speak with Fr Kelly. Pretending to be someone else, Fr Kelly said he would take a note from the man and deliver it to the priest. That particular incident got Fr Kelly down and he considered pulling out of the show.
