Lessons in Memory Stick Zen

A Catholic priest is 'co-operating', with an investigation into an "inadvertent" display of gay porn, apparantly caused by an auto-loading memory stick left in a laptop, during a presentation at a primary school in County Tyrone. Father Martin McVeigh projected the images onto a screen during a meeting for parents in Pomeroy in preparation for First Holy Communion. According to the head of the Catholic church in Ireland:
The priest has stated that he had no knowledge of the offending imagery. The archdiocese immediately sought the advice of the PSNI who indicated that, on the basis of the evidence available, no crime had been committed.
"He was visibly shaken and flustered," said the parents. "He gave no explanation or apology to the group and bolted out of the room"; the co-ordinator 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."
