Especially if you got it from someone else and if you’re going to show whatever is on it to a group of 9 year olds...
The Roman Catholic Church in Ireland has said it is investigating how a priest offering a presentation to parents on their children’s upcoming confessions instead ended up showing them a computer slideshow of gay porn.
Perhaps it had been used at a Priest convention?
Brady said the priest, the Rev Martin McVeigh, “has stated that he had no knowledge of the offending imagery” and is helping an internal church investigation. McVeigh said other church officials used the memory stick and he wanted an investigation “so that what happened can be legitimately explained”. “I don’t know how it happened but I know what happened,” McVeigh said.
I know how it happened: someone was saving stuff that they downloaded that they should neither have been viewing nor keeping. That’s how.
The parents described how, at a 26 March meeting at the school, McVeigh inserted the memory stick, clicked open a folder – and unleashed a cavalcade of sexually explicit pictures of naked men. “He was visibly shaken and flustered. He gave no explanation or apology to the group and bolted out of the room,” the parents said.
One would expect some sort of explanation like ‘I got this from Father Tilling!’ Or something!
Two other school and church officials continued the communion discussion, they said, “however the parents who viewed the pictures were horrified and distracted”. They said an eight-year-old child was also present.
‘Horrified and distracted’… there’s an understatement!
Let that be a lesson to ya. Know what you’re showing before you show it.
