Irish Priest Projects Gay Porn On Screen During Presentation

One has to say that, well, at least they weren’t pictures of child pornography.

The Catholic Church in Ireland has had to launch an investigation into claims that Father Martin McVeigh in Pomery, County Tyrone, Northern Ireland accidentally showed gay pornography during a presentation to parents. The parents said that the images were projected onto a screen during a meeting that was being held as part of the preparation fro First Holy Communion by the schoolchildren.

Cardinal Sean Brady admitted in a statement that “inappropriate imagery was inadvertently shown by a priest at the beginning of a PowerPoint presentation,” and that the images were “immediately removed from the screen” and “the priest has stated that he had no knowledge of the offending imagery.”

The incident was reported to the police, but nothing is likely to happen. Brady’s statement acknowledged that “The archdiocese immediately sought the advice of the PSNI (Police Service of Northern Ireland) who indicated that, on the basis of the evidence available, no crime had been committed.” Brady also stated “The priest is cooperating with an investigation of the matter on the part of the archdiocese.”

The PSNI informed CNN that “The incident has been reported to us, we have advised that no criminal offences have been disclosed at this time — and anything else is a matter for the CCMS (Council for Catholic Maintained Schools) or the diocese.”

Horrified parents were set to protest outside the local church this past Sunday, but that was called off after it was learned that Reverend Martin McVeigh would not be present at Mass. Parents have questioned why McVeigh had not been suspended pending the archdiocese investigation.

However, parents say they were “horrified” by what they saw and want action to be taken.
