Icon15 Priest Accidentally Shows Gay Porn to Parishoners

Church meeting interrupted by gay porn



NINA MANDELL

Tuesday, April 03, 2012


Holy oops!

The Catholic Church launched an investigation after an Irish priest inadvertently played a slide show of gay porn to a group of parents who had come for a meeting about their children's First Communion.

Father Martin McVeigh was setting up a PowerPoint presentation last week when the sexual images popped up on the computer, The Ulster Herald reported.

"There were plenty of shocked faces," one person at the meeting told the newspaper. "There's a lot of parents very angry about it."

Parents said in a statement that McVeigh quickly removed the offending memory card from the computer and bolted from the room.

"He was visibly shaken and flustered," the statement said, according to The Associated Press. "He gave no explanation or apology to the group and bolted out of the room. The coordinator and the teachers then continued with the presentation."

McVeigh returned to the meeting 20 minutes later and told parents that children get lots of money for their Holy Communion and should consider giving some of it to the church.

Parents present at the meeting were understandably furious and many of them pulled their children from the First Communion program, The AP reported.

On Monday, the head of the Catholic Church in Ireland, Cardinal Sean Brady, said McVeigh had no idea how the images got on the memory stick and was assisting with the investigation.

“The priest has stated that he had no knowledge of the offending imagery,” Brady said in a statement. “The archdiocese immediately sought the advice of the [Police Service of Northern Ireland], who indicated that, on the basis of the evidence available, no crime had been committed.”

McVeigh reportedly said other church officials had access to the memory stick as well.

"I don't know how it happened but I know what happened," he said.

i want to know why someone made a Powerpoint about gay porn.

(this guy very easily could have been the victim of some kind of virus, but it would be difficult to prove and harder to convince the angry parents)

The fact that he "bolted" out of the room (after realizing what had happened) with no explanation certainly doesn't help his defense. LOL!

Well the investigation should determine what actually happened. He could have truly been flustered and just behaved out of panic. We shall see, one way or another.

Sounds like a set up to me. For some reason, someone thought this would be funny and the priest thatgot caught in the middle was just a poor schmuck that got caught in the crosshairs of somone ele's sick and twisted sense of humor. I seriously doubt he knew the origin of the gay pics.
