Parents in Shock as Priest Displays Gay Porn Images [Ireland]
The Herald ^ | 3/30/12 | Clodagh Sheehy

Posted on 04/01/2012 5:57:37 AM PDT by marshmallow

A PRIEST has denied knowing how gay porn images appeared on a screen during a presentation he was giving to parents of children preparing for First Communion.

Fr Martin McVeigh was setting up the PowerPoint display when the explicit sex scenes flashed up on the screen.

He was about to give a talk to the parents of First Communicants but abandoned the presentation after the pornographic images appeared.

One of those present said the pictures appeared on the screen after the priest put a USB memory stick into the computer at St Mary's School in Pomeroy, Co Tyrone.

"There were plenty of shocked faces. There's a lot of parents very angry about it."

School principal Sean Devlin is understood to have contacted the Armagh diocese about the incident, which is being investigated by the diocese child protection office.

The Church authorities also went to the police, who said no crime had been committed.

The Archdiocese of Armagh has refused to say whether Fr McVeigh has been suspended from duties or had restrictions imposed on his position while the investigation is under way.

The priest himself insists the pornographic images can be "legitimately explained".

Simple explanation: He has more than one USB stick and grabbed the wrong one. Or, he had more than one "presentation" on his thumb drive.

Perhaps he did, and therein might be the problem. Not likely, but not impossible.

A naughty teenage boy who managed to get his hands on Father McVeigh’s USB stick for a few minutes could easily pull off the prank of a lifetime. It would be absolutely untraceable, and nobody would believe McVeigh’s protestations of innocence.

He probably only collected the images so he could relate to the gays. See joke below:

************************************************************

Three Irishmen are sitting in the pub window seat watching the front door of the brothel across the road.

The local Methodist pastor appears, and quickly goes inside.

“Would you look at dat!” says the first Irishman. “Didn’t I always say what a bunch of hypocrites they are?”
No sooner are the words out of his mouth than a rabbi appears at the door, knocks, and goes inside.

“Another one trying to fool everyone with pious preaching and stupid hats!” says the second Irishman.

They continue drinking their beer roundly condemning the vicar and the rabbi when they see their own Catholic priest knock on the door.

“Ah, now dat’s sad,” says the third Irishman. “One of the girls must have died.”

Is it time for the, "I was just doing research on the gay lifestyle so I can properly minister to them."

Those USB memory sticks don’t just come like that from the mfgr. Someone got to that PP Show and “did some editing”, just for the audience of children, I’m guessing.

I had an English teacher in high school who was rather effeminate, who would make these snide comments about whatever. I taped a centerfold to the projection screen and rolled it back up. The look on his face when he pulled it down was priceless. Prank of a lifetime and who’s he going to complain to?

LGBT indoctrination. Mandatory classes. With a follow up questionnaire when done.
