An Irish priest is doing damage control after gay porn flashed across the screen just as he was about to give a presentation to parents whose children were preparing to receive First Communion. The Pomeroy, Co Tyrone priest was preparing to give a PowerPoint presentation to a room filled with 26 parents and one 8-year-old child when the unfortunate incident occurred.
Images of men doing naughty things to each other splashed across the scene for all to see, leaving Fr. McVeigh too flustered and embarrassed to continue with the presentation.
Father McVeigh swears he has no idea how the porn ended up on his computer. But, in what could only be described as a contradictory statement, he said there is a "legitimate explanation" as to why the images popped up. To further add to his predicament, witnesses have said that the images where men doing the nasty with each other popped up after he inserted a USB drive into the computer.
So, here's the scenario: Closeted gay priest brings the wrong USB drive to church, wherein he accidentally reveals his deep, dark secret to a roomful of devout followers. Who wants to take bets that he claims that the gay porn images were saved as part of research he was conducting on the evils of homosexuality?
The only other explanation would be that some rascally kid broke into his room and switched out the USB drives for yucks. It's possible, but highly improbable. As one commenter on an Irish website said, "Own it, mate. Take a stand for who you are."
