‘That’s Not Mine’: Guest Speaker at High School Assembly Allegedly Shows Porn on Screen

CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (WTVR-TV) A guest speaker was removed from a high school assembly Monday morning after an inappropriate image appeared on a large screen at the beginning of his presentation, Midlothian High School principal Shawn Abel said in a message to parents.

The image was pornographic in nature, according to people who were in the room during the Career Pathways program assembly at Midlothian High School.

“The image came from the mobile drive provided by the outside speaker. The guest speaker was immediately removed from the assembly, and the remainder of the event went on as planned,” Abel said. “Like you, I am very concerned that a distraction caused by an outside speaker would become the focus of an otherwise important conversation with our students. We will redouble our efforts when we coordinate events with outside speakers, including screening the presentations ahead of time.”

The speaker was employed by Bon Secours Health System. The organization said in a statement:

“Bon Secours is a faith based organization, and as such we hold our employees to the highest ethical standards. We therefore offer our sincerest apology to the students, faculty, and parents of Midlothian High School for the incident today involving a Bon Secours employee. The incident was accidental, but unacceptable. We have placed the employee on administrative leave while we conduct a thorough investigation, and will take appropriate disciplinary action in accordance with the findings of the investigation. We will have no further comment until the investigation is complete.”

    Talking about being caught with their pants down, LOL!

    “Bon Secours is a faith based organization”

    If it is a Christian faith based organization, we should insist that they fire the pagan pervert.

      I hate to break it to you, but bible-belt states have the most per-capita on-line porn usage. Please don’t take my word for it. Look it up. I was surprised too. Apparently there are a lot of “good Christians” who really like porn.

      • Tony Demarcus, Ph.D., D.D.

        You aren’t “breaking” anything to the Christian. Most nominal Christians are false Christians, in the name only, and need to be called out on that! If you want to enlighten these cultural Christians relative to their heresies, you need to go those churches in the “Bible belt” that allow women to speak on church property and preach to them the simple Biblical math that such is not allowed! “But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.” 1 Tim 2:12 There are many other Biblical commands that the Christian scrutinizes in Bible study to rebuke and reprove the cultural Christian, and to judge who is not a true believer and to mark them and remove them from the true Biblical churches and Christian institutions. Rom 16:17

          If bible belt Christians want to watch porn, that’s none of my business. I just think it’s funny.

          • Tony Demarcus, Ph.D., D.D.

            Croq:

            Real Christians, be they in the Bible belt, or anywhere else, do not ever watch porn! Did you forget that the Christian Bible is completely against carnality of any sort? Therefore it only naturally follows that no Christian that been truly Saved has any lustful thoughts, ever! And it is our duty to identify those that do and “out” them by marking them as commanded in Romans 16! In the Christian Bible, AV 1611, 2+2 still equals 4!

          • Croquet_Player

            You’re funny too.

            So the Christian cannot sin? My experience proves otherwise. How about yours?

          • Tony Demarcus, Ph.D., D.D.

            Reasonable Conservative:

            The Christian can sin. But lead by Jesus’ Grace he always chooses not to. The only way a true Christian would sin is out of ignorance, for which he will repent immediately when given a Biblical rebuke.

          • Reasonable Conservative

            No doubt, “the Spirit is willing but the flesh is weak.”

            However, I have not found the Lord Jesus overruling my will and compelling me to obey or follow Him. I have a choice, and the consequences of that choice go a long way in determining what kind of future obedience I will provide.

            So, whereas your statement sounds very fervent and zealous, it’s not really how God chooses to work with people; and the militant quality you espouse is really a caricature of the truth.

            God is a lot more gracious than you’re making Him out to be, (which is my experience, anyway.)

          • Tony Demarcus, Ph.D., D.D.

            Reasonable Conservative:
            First of all, when attempting to quote the Bible, use the Christian Bible and not a Cathlic counterfeit. To wit, “Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.” Matthew 26:40

            Relative to your false idea that real Christians, those who been Saved by the real Jesus (as opposed to believing that they were Saved by fictional Jesus, such as that of Mormons or Cathlics), may knowingly choose to sin, have you actually read the Christian Bible?? The Christian Bible teaches us that once we are Saved, we’re saints–not sinners! Duh. Unfortunately the space on this message board doesn’t allow the Christian to present a proper thesis on the subject. But there are good news! Brother Wally Langford is an esteemed and illustrious Christian pastor that used to post some of his Biblical sermons on youtube. You can find it by searching for his moniker there: preachthehelloutofya . In his channel you can find sermon called “you might be one, but I’m not.”

            It is therefore, your assignment to study the message within so that one day you may fully understand the WHOLE meaning of the Christian Bible.

          • Reasonable Conservative

            I’m really not sure what to do with you, seeing as how your spirit and demeanor are so lacking in the simple grace and humility that characterizes someone who has been freely redeemed from his sins by the grace of God.

            I surely know enough to stay away from you and warn others to do as well, lest they become ensnared by both your attitude and arrogant assumptions.

            By them, I don’t get the impression that you are truly born of God, but are somehow still entrapped by your sins and are trying to compensate by being extra zealous and insulting – as though it would give you the power to actually walk apart from them, (regardless of your denials and ARROGANT

          • Joe Dokes

            The New Testament, the letters of Paul particularly, are full of exhortations for believers to be putting off the old man they once were, to deny self, to put to death their [physical body’s] members, etc. There would be no reason for those exhortations were Christians, in their flesh, unable to sin.

            The difference is that God no longer views Christians according to the flesh, but in Christ, in whom we have received complete forgiveness and perfect justification. That is a fact that many professing Christians do not realize or simply do not believe…but that’s what Paul taught.

          • Reasonable Conservative

            I appreciate this response very much, as it reflects both the understanding I have as being Born Again for the last 30 years, and what I discern from what the Bible teaches. Thank you for your reasonable response.

          • Joe Dokes

            “Real Christians, be they in the Bible belt, or anywhere else, do not ever watch porn! Did you forget that the Christian Bible is completely against carnality of any sort?”

            Yes it absolutely is, which is why the apostle Paul rebuked the Corinthians up one side and down the other for every kind of carnality we can name — including their tolerating (imo) a guy having sex with his own mother. There was almost nothing they were not continuing to engage in as they had when they were pagans.

            Yet Paul never once says any one of them was not saved because of their conduct; not even the man cited above.

            I’m going to go out on a limb here and guess you’re a Lordship Salvationist — you believe a Christian’s conduct (good or bad) is the necessary proof to others that they are indeed saved, and without good conduct, there’s good reason for others to doubt. But Paul’s interaction with the Corinthians prove that L.S. is a lie.

            And before anyone accuses me…I’m in no way promoting or suggesting that a believer should watch porn or engage in any other carnal behaviors which indeed are sin. Just pointing out that the apostle Paul proves that you are wrong on that point.

        • ThroatwobblerMangrove

          THAT is the No True Scotsman fallacy one again in spades, there, Tone. When you start declaring that some are real and some are false and it’s based entirely on your own opinion of what constitutes (and doesn’t constitute) Christian behaviour, you’re guilty of the fallacy big time.

          Even assuming a woman who speaks on church property goes against the Bible, and I am not saying it does, why would a single so-called “sin” like that be grounds for demoting someone for being a Christian? I mean, do you have the official Christian playbook someplace and can you cite the passage that gives you carte blanche to make that statement? If not, why should you be taken seriously?

          • Tony Demarcus, Ph.D., D.D.

            Throatwobbler:

            Why do you insist in making a fool of yourself? You were already instructed relative to what standard is used to determine who is and is not a real Christian. I’ll go really slow here, so that even you may be able to understand, ok? Ok! This standard is called the Christian Bible! Get it? Since Christian behaviors are defined by the Bible, knowing and wilful violations of Biblical instruction indicate that a person or an establishment aren’t really Christian, but in the name only.

            You can thank me for educating you relative to this very simple Biblical math later.

          • ThroatwobblerMangrove

            No, Doctor Dominionist. I’m not the fool here. The fool is a man who thinks that his brand of Christianity somehow makes him a better, superior Christian than another Christian. And I’ll be the one to go real slow so YOU can understand, ALL CHRISTIANS USE THE CHRISTIAN BIBLE. And that includes Catholics, whom you don’t consider Christian at all. What you have is Christian snobbery in the form of the No True Scotsman fallacy.

            Really, a “doctor” doesn’t know this? Really?

          • Reasonable Conservative

            Roman Catholics are taught to obey the teachings of the church, rather than follow the words found in the Bible, (which need no magisterium or church council.) THEY are the words of God all by themselves, (and is why the RC church has gone to such extents over the centuries to keep people blind and unable to read them.)

            The Roman church does not believe in an instantaneous and utter salvation that comes by simple repentance and faith, but rather dishes out mercy and “grace” piecemeal by a continual system of observances, penances, prayers, masses, rites, etc, that individually or collectively have no power to save.

            So, please understand, there IS a massive difference between someone who says he is a Christian and someone who has been Born Again by the grace of God. This is the line that God has drawn, and “the Lord makes a difference between His people and the world. “

          • ThroatwobblerMangrove

            I disagree with your take on Roman Catholics and their teachings.

          • Reasonable Conservative

            You wouldn’t if you were Born Again.

          • ThroatwobblerMangrove

            I reject fundamentalist theology.

          • Reasonable Conservative

            You wouldn’t if you were Born Again.

            Joh 3:3 KJV Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

          • ThroatwobblerMangrove

            I was born again when I was baptized as an infant.

          • Reasonable Conservative

            That’s interesting. Let’s compare that to the words of the Lord:

            Mar 16:16 KJV He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

             Joh 5:24 KJVLite Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. 

            Joh 6:40 KJVLite And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.  

             Joh 6:47 KJVLite Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life. 

             Joh 20:31 KJVLite But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name. 

            It would seem the emphasis is on “believing,” rather than on the act of baptizing. “He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved.”

            So when did you believe on HIM, (rather than on your baptism?)

            And who told you you were born again when you were baptised? (And why did you believe him?)

          • ThroatwobblerMangrove

            Sorry, I am not interested in the debate. I have had this argument far too many times.

          • Reasonable Conservative

            Nothing to debate. You’ve been shown the true words of God and you refuse them out of fear and pride in favor of your man-made religion. Have a nice eternity.

          • ThroatwobblerMangrove

            No, it is exactly as I said. I am not looking to have an endless debate that goes nowhere as I have done so many times before, and you should respect and understand that. You aren’t sounding very Reasonable, Conservative.

          • Reasonable Conservative

            The Roman Catholic Church does not predate the Bible, and in comparison, has made obvious and egregious errors against it. (Do you value your soul so little? Someone shows you exactly where the RC has changed “the truth of God into a lie,” and you reject it out of fear and pride.)

            It’s so sad. Millions of Roman Catholics through the centuries have repented and truly believed, have become BORN AGAIN, and testify that the Roman church is false and injurious, and you choose to reject it.

            We can SHOW YOU where God has pre-revealed these errors.

          • ThroatwobblerMangrove

            I know it is something you cannot accept, but Catholics are Christians. Look the word up in the dictionary if you don’t believe me. Unless you are one of those people who won’t even believe the dictionary.

            Catholicism doesn’t predate the Bible…I never claimed it did. But it does predate your religion, which is some form of Christian fundamentalism.

          • Reasonable Conservative

            True Born Again Christian walk apart from sin because they have the Spirit of God dwelling in them, so that they cannot go back to sinning like they used to.

            1Jn 3:9-10 KJV 9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. 10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.

          • ThroatwobblerMangrove

            I have heard it all before. You believe you are “annointed” and “chosen”.

          • Reasonable Conservative

            I believe I am Born Again by the grace of God, which DIDN’T come by being baptized as a baby or being confirmed at 13, but by REPENTING and BELIEVING in the Lord Jesus, as per the BIBLE!

            And now I have heaven as a free gift, my sins utterly cleansed by the blood of Jesus, and fellowship with like-minded believers who have done the same.

            And if you doubt this, why don’t you try it instead?

        • james blue

          So you are saying this isn’t really a Christian nation?

        So you’re an expert on porn usage.

        Hmmm.

        • Croquet_Player

          You flatter me. I watch the stock market go up and down. Doesn’t make me a stock expert. As it turns out, I have no interest in porn. Sure a romantic scene in an interesting movie is a bit of a thrill. We’re human beings, watching good-looking people behaving affectionately. It’s attractive, and charming, in the same way we all smile when a bride and groom kiss. Aww! How adorable, (and a bit sexy too!) But straight up porn? Nope, does nothing at all for me, and in fact is a massive turn-off. As someone once said, “Erotic is the feather. Porn is the whole chicken.” As I said, I’m surprised. Porn is so hugely popular, it’s like I don’t like ice cream or something. “WHADDAYA MEAN? EVERYONE LIKES ICE CREAM!!” Well, apparently not. It’s just not my cup of tea. Also, to be fair, maybe there’s some charming, shot like a David Lean film, extraordinarily witty porn out there, and I just haven’t seen it. By all means please do point the way. Until then, I’ll just keep watching “The Scarlet Pimpernel”, with Lesley Howard and Merle Oberon. Now THAT’S a sexy movie. 😉

    I checked out Bon Secours and they are a Catholic pro life ministry that teaches caring for the sick and dying. How humiliating for this person. It wonder if it was sabotage. I would not put it past anybody in today’s society to do something like that.

    • Lark.62

      Bon Secours is also the name of the Catholic pro life group that operated a baby home for children of unwed women in Ireland. It had a death rate far above local averages and the good sisters dumped the children’s bodies in an old septic tank.
