Hell-bent for Deselection

If Jesus has anything to do with it, which one do you think will make it past St. Peter — Barbara Johnson or a nasty, vicious little shit named Father Marcel Guarnizo? (Details here; video below)

There Barbara Johnson stood, before Jesus and her family, first in line to receive the Eucharist at the funeral Mass for her mother, a woman so Catholic she’d come to after her heart attack and crossed herself.

If you’ve seen Wednesday’s Washington Post, you know what happened then: The Rev. Marcel Guarnizo, of Gaithersburg’s John Neumann Catholic Church, “put his hand over the body of Christ,” Johnson said. He “looked at me and said, ‘I can’t give you Communion because you live with a woman, and in the eyes of the church, that is a sin.’ ”
