A State Of Chassis LIVE

at

This morning.

Centra in Mullagh County Cavan.

Guarnizo, eh?

A priest who denied communion to lesbian at her mother’s funeral because she was ‘living in sin’ has been suspended for ‘intimidating behaviour’

Rev. Marcel Guarnizo, who last month denied Barbara Johnson the bread and wine at the funeral mass, has been placed on administrative leave from the ministry in the Washington archdiocese.

Johnson, who attended the funeral with her partner of 20 years, stood first in the line to receive the communion at Saint John Neumann Catholic Church in Gaithersburg, Maryland on February 25.

But Father Marcel Guarnizo reportedly covered the bowl and said: ‘I cannot give you Communion because you live with a woman, and in the eyes of the Church, that is a sin.’

Good times.

    Ah Fr. Marcel Guarnizo a leading light in Opus Dei and with shady links to US intelligence.

    Has Waters joined Opus Dei then?

    I think I spotted Waters in a clip at the Irexit convention. Is he desperately seeking a role to play in life? I haven’t seen or heard him on the public airways of late; I think he enjoyed being one of the talking heads in society and he may be missing that scene.

      He did a two part interview on Eamon Dunphy’s podcast (The Stand) last year, it should still be there to download. It might give you an insight in to his state of mind.

    How very “christian” of him…

    Bad move, Gizo, bad move. A good amount of the dosh for your parish probably comes from funerals. Did nobody teach you in priest school not to offend your cash customers?
