The Dangers of Autoplay

Over in Ireland a priest, about to give a talk to parents at St. Mary’s about First Communion, was setting up a powerpoint presentation on a projector when it happened.

A slide show of 16 explicit gay sex scenes appeared on the screen after the priest inserted his USB stick into the computer (no pun intended, i swear… I could have used “dongle”).

The priest, Father Martin McVeigh was speaking to 26 parents and an 8 yr old child, when the images appeared and the priest denies knowing how it happened.  “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.”  Parents at the meeting reported that McVeigh, “was visibly shaken and flustered. He gave no explanation or apology to the group and bolted out of the room. The coordinator and the teachers then continued with the presentation.  The meeting continued in his absence, however, the parents who viewed the pictures were horrified and distracted. Twenty minutes later he returned, he continued with the meeting and wrapped up by saying that the children get lots of money for their Holy Communion and should consider giving some of it to the church.”

McVeigh was suspended from his duties and the Archdiocese is looking into the matter, but no charges have been filed as no crime was committed.
