The priest who was put on administrative leave by the Archdiocese of Washington following a much-talked-about incident in which he denied communion to a lesbian woman attending her mother's funeral, has issued a long defense of his action and has said the church isn't being candid about the reason for its decision to put him on leave.
Rev. Marcel Guarnizo, in a statement posted by CNSNews.com, says:
— Of the denial of communion to Barbara Johnson on Feb. 25 that he is "confident ... that I did the only thing a faithful Catholic priest could do in such an awkward situation, quietly, with no intention to hurt or embarrass."
WHAT!?! Was she licking her lesbian lover's twat at the time? What happened to that separate-but-equal bullshit about love the sinner, hate the sin? It was her mother's funeral, you child-molesting asshole!
YOU HAVE NO MORAL GROUND TO STAND ON!
