  1. only he didn’t stop her from doing it because she was a lesbian but because she was a woman. Her sexuality is insignificant PN!

    1. I guess you aren’t fully appraised of the facts. How could she be denied communion because of her gender????? That makes absolutely nonsense. Washington Post coverage made it entirely clear that her sexual orientation was the reason she was denied communion.

    2. the article say she was denied communion because she was WITH a woman.

  2. Why would any gay or lesbian person want to participate in communion anyway?? I’d sooner burn the church down. Talk about internalised homophobia…

    1. When this story first did the rounds she only wants to do communion because it was her mother’s funeral and it was what her mother would have wanted her to do. I don’t think the woman in question was still a practicing Catholic at the time but was doing it for her dead Mum.

      1. Who the hell are you to tell another gay women or man if they should take communion or not. Better being confused tha being a little Hitler.

    2. Years of religious mind f\/ck does that to you.

    3. @MD22 (see this is the problem with pronouncing before actually READING the article….)

      She was at her mothers Funeral…!

  3. As is standard with these Catholics the bad apple will not be removed, just moved to another cart.

    Same old procedure…move the bastards around to new parishes….same old scum..

    I agree with Wingby and Garry. This is no different than priests who molest young children, and are simply moved to another parish where their habits are not known.
    Until the RC church climbs out of the age of inquisition, it will remain this way.
    Phooey on them.

    where did he go .. to another church or a job in some office somewhere ..
    the catholic church condemns us .. and I could see the need to receive communion if that was her mother’s wish.. the priest will not be punished will not be let go . . will just keep on being the homophobic bigot he is
    May her mother rest in peace

  7. the evil ungodly fcvker

    So following true catholic tradition he’s been secretly moved to practise his bigotry on some other poor people somewhere else. But what can you expect with a member of the hitler youth as there leader !! Wake up world !!
