A Morally Bankrupt Church
Pat Perriello, National Catholic Reporter
Faithful America references a story from The Associated Press about a Minnesota priest who withheld the sacraments for an entire family because of their 17-year-old son's support for same-sex marriage legislation. He posted a picture of himself on Facebook with a sign indicating his support for a same-sex marriage amendment that was on the Minnesota ballot.
Fr. Gary LaMoine of Assumption Parish in Barnesville, Minn., not only denied confirmation to Lennon Cihak, but also refused communion to the entire Cihak family, the story states. The family no longer attends Assumption Church.
