PRIEST SHOWS GAY PORN IMAGES DURING PRESENTATION
Mon, 2 April 2012
A Catholic priest is in hot water after he accidentally screened gay pornographic images during a Holy Communion presentation.
Father Martin McVeigh was preparing a PowerPoint presentation for parents about their children’s upcoming Holy Communion event at a primary school in County Tyrone, Ireland when the incident happened.
There were 26 parents and an eight year old boy present when the 16 explicit images were projected onto the screen, apparently from Father McVeigh's memory stick.
Parents at the presentation told the BBC that the priest appeared flustered and bolted from the room with no explanation.
The meeting continued without him despite the parents being "horrified and distracted".
Cardinal Brady, the head of the Catholic Church in Ireland, issued a statement saying: "The priest has stated that he had no knowledge of the offending imagery.
"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 added: "The priest is co-operating with an investigation of the matter on the part of the archdiocese."
