It’s A Miracle: Gay-Porn Priest’s Laptop Is “Stolen” Before Police Can Investigate

Queerty reported earlier this month that Father Martin McVeigh got hot under the priestly collar when his Holy Communion slideshow presentation for parents (and at least one boy) at his parish in Northern Ireland was interrupted by a series of 16 gay-porn stills.

At the time, McVeigh claimed he had no knowledge of how the photos got on his laptop and the head of the Catholic Church in Ireland said the good father was co-operating with an investigation. Of course, when the dirty pictures appeared before the parishioners, McVeigh grabbed his memory stick and ran from the room like the Devil was on his tail.

Now local police in Pomeroy say their investigation has hit a brick wall, reports the Irish Times, because McVeigh says his latop was “stolen” in a burglary of the parochial house. A very odd burglary, since absolutely nothing else was taken.

And if he’s lying, may God strike him dead, right?

      Was the flash disk drive stolen too? That’s where the images were. Also, was it his personal laptop or a laptop shared by several priests? If shared by several priests and if that laptop was the one used to download the images, the guilty party would have had an incentive to make the laptop disappear, but the guilty party might be someone else.

      The other thing to keep in mind is whether the computer had any viruses or other types of “malware” on it.

      Grabbing his memory stick may sound like an admission of guilt, but it might have been the only thing he could think of to shut the images off.

      “Gay Porn Priest’s Laptop ‘Stolen'” is quite possibly my headline of the year.

      @B: He had to grab his memory stick to keep from grabbing his other stick….

      Re No 3: (Queerty seems to have swallowed what I just posted): http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-17582542 has a picture of the priest – he just might be too old for a desperate need to “grab his other stick.” In any case, the original article refers to “a computer”, not “his laptop”, although later articles claim his laptop was stolen. Possibly multiple computers were in use, and “his laptop” might have been shared by other priests.

      Maybe the Pope ordered it stolen so he doesn’t have to deal with the hassle of transferring the priest to another cathedral?

      The pope stole it to do some personal investigation.

      what I want to know is….
      hes computer savvy enough to download pr0n
      hes computer savvy enough to put together a slideshow presentation

      how the fuck is he NOT computer savvy enough to hit the off switch the moment something dodgy appears, how is he not savvy enough to not let powerpoint go through 16 long excruciating slides of whatever he had been wanking off to the night before, and how on earth did the two get mixed up? none of it makes any sense.

      The Lord does indeed move in mysterious ways….or to borrow from another religion “instant karma”

      What is Holy Communion after all but a celebration of the body and body fluids, and what is the very center, but the most magical and most holy organ. How better to inspire and fulfill such ancient goals than to go to the core and seek the most holy and giving shaft which when properly served gushes with the life force. C**K worship is really at the root of all religions and societies and should be acknowledged! I began my worship at age five and never tire of it or want to stop. In such wonderful male organizations one can totally surrender and worship, one can live to serve and serve to be fulfilled.

      That poor man. If there were no stigma to homosexuality then his natural urges would not have caused him this humongous embarrassment. I hope that in the near future he really does “see the light” and find the courage to live an authentic life instead of hiding behind a dead and moribund religion.

      No. 7 ยท XTIAAN asked, “how the f*** is he NOT computer savvy enough to hit the off switch the moment something dodgy appears,”

      If you look at his picture in the original articles, he’s getting up there is years. He’s probably done this presentation many, many times. He could have opened the wrong one and
      simply pushed a key to go to the next slide without bothering to look at any of it – kind of doing it all on autopilot.

      Whether it was his porn or someone else’s porn isn’t clear, but it doesn’t really matter.

      Sometimes, they ways in which the Lord works aren’t so mysterious…
