Priest Refuses Communion to Lesbian at Funeral
OH MY GOD!
Here we go again.
Who do these priests think they are? God?
A lesbian is demanding that the priest who refused to serve her Communion at her mother’s funeral be removed from his ministry.
Seattle Times reports,
Deep in grief, Barbara Johnson stood first in line for Communion at her
mother’s funeral Saturday morning. But the priest in front of her
immediately made it clear she would not receive the sacramental bread
“He put his hand over the body of Christ and looked at me and said, ‘I
can’t give you Communion because you live with a woman, and in the eyes
of the church, that is a sin,’ ” she recalled Tuesday.
Family members said the priest left the altar while Johnson was
delivering a eulogy for her mother and he did not attend the burial or find another priest
to be there. – He said he was SICK. And did not feel well.
Since Saturday, other Catholics have told him that the experience has
shaken their faith. “You have serious questions about how American
Catholics in particular practice their faith. How many divorced people
live in a technical state of sin? How many people practice some form of
artificial birth control in a state of sin?” he said. “If the church
will now have these ‘state of grace’ police, you know, how can that be?
That’s the most personal thing in the world — between a person and God.”
