Parents Shocked After Priest Displays Gay Pornography During Presentation [POLL]

Father Martin McVeigh accidentally displayed gay porn for church audience
BBC

A priest in Ireland has come under fire after he accidentally displayed gay porn during a presentation to parents of children about to receive first communion.

We invite you to share your opinion below, and let us know what action you think the church should take.

Father Martin McVeigh inserted a USB memory stick into a computer, and thanks to Windows Auto Play, a video which was pornographic in nature was immediately projected for the crowd to see. The audience was reported to include 26 parishioners and one 8-year-old child.

Church officials have contacted the Archdiocese of Armagh, which is investigating the incident. Local police were also contacted, but no criminal action is being taken because the illicit material contained no child pornography. According to Dublin’s Joe.ie, McVeigh insists that the presence of the images can be “legitimately explained.”

“I don’t know how it happened but I know what happened,” said the priest. “There are people making innuendoes who weren’t even there but in this day and age these stories grow.”

Certainly McVeigh is entitled to consume whatever material he chooses to in his own time, and many may go as far as to laugh the incident off as no big deal.

But what if you were one of the parents who witnessed this unfortunate incident? Would your feelings change if your clergy made the same mistake, or if your child was about to receive first-communion instruction? You’re welcome to take our poll below, and share any additional thoughts in the comments section below.
