Keep Up The Good Work, Asshole
http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2014/02/07/le...ic-priest/

Quote:A Catholic priest in Chillicothe, Missouri abruptly refused to give communion to a lesbian parishioner at her mother’s funeral when he found out that she was in a same-sex relationship.

According to Chillicothe’s Fox 4 News, Carol Parker and her partner of 20 years, Josephine Martin, received word from their longtime priest that he would not allow them to take communion in the church that they have attended for more than 12 years.

Parker’s mother died on December 26. When Father Benjamin Kneib of Saint Columban Catholic Church read that Parker’s mother was survived by a son, a daughter, and her daughter’s partner, Kneib contacted the couple to tell them they were no longer welcome in God’s house.

It's already too late to start banning communion to someone who's been going that long. Not to mention it's not as if the catholic's hands are clean in regards to inappropriate sexual conduct. At least when she touches someone's privates, it's a consenting adult.

Good video to watch, if you want to know how common the Jesus story really is.

Yeah, because he's just not there to perform a service for those in mourning; he's there to judge them on his god's behalf. What a presumptuous dick, if he really believes in his god, then I'm sure his god and handle Carol Parker on his own. Ironically such actions speak to the lack of faith of the priest to let their god handle his own shit...

Oh how times have changed. One day Yahweh sends two bears to slaughter children for calling a prophet of his bald, and another day the pope has to hide behind bullet proof glass when in public.

And he also agreed to return every last penny that they had donated in those 12 years, right? Because he wouldn't want to accept charity from those filthy faggots, and he's a man of principle!
"Well, evolution is a theory. It is also a fact. And facts and theories are different things, not rungs in a hierarchy of increasing certainty. Facts are the world's data. Theories are structures of ideas that explain and interpret facts. Facts don't go away when scientists debate rival theories to explain them. Einstein's theory of gravitation replaced Newton's in this century, but apples didn't suspend themselves in midair, pending the outcome. And humans evolved from ape- like ancestors whether they did so by Darwin's proposed mechanism or by some other yet to be discovered."

The church is the ultimate expression of Vespasian's comment.

I agree that the priest had the right to refuse communion, and to actually excommunicate the lesbian couple. However to tell them they are not welcome to come to church is not a Christ example of reaching out to people.

God loves those who believe and those who do not and the same goes for me, you have no choice in this matter. That puts the matter of total free will to rest.

That's because you don't know him as we do, Jake.

The only time G-C will ever agree with a priest is when he is fucking someone over that G-C disapproves of!
