linguaphiles

I'd like to ask something that is hopefully not too offensive. Is there any particular insulting way to refer to a priest in English? In Greek we call them goats (τραγόπαπας) and I need to translate this somehow and can't think of anything that would really get that meaning accross. And because this is linguaphiles and I'm curious, are there specifically tailored ways to insult priests and refer to them in a negative ways in other languages you are aware of?

Thank you all very much.
