Priest is way out of line at a funeral

(Almost) Unbelievable.

She’s burying her own mother and this asshole is…unbelievable.  I refuse to believe the Jesus would deny communion to a member of the church, even if they are a sinner.  If this priest is denying sacraments to sinners, then he needs to deny communion to all sinners.  

A Maryland lesbian who was denied Communion by a Catholic priest while attending her mother’s funeral is speaking out about her experience.
 

“I approached [Father Marcel Guarnizo of Gaithersburg’s Saint John Neumann Catholic Church] to receive communion, and at that moment, he placed his hand over the bowl containing the Eucharist and looked into my eyes and said, ‘I cannot give you Communion because you live with a woman, and in the eyes of the church, that is a sin.'”
 

Johnson, 51, now says that Father Marcel also left the altar as she was delivering her eulogy.
 

Though Johnson has reached out via an email, the priest has yet to apologize.
