Remember the Lesbian who was denied Holy Communion in the Archdiocese of Washington DC? Check HERE.
While it is possible to discuss whether can. 915 was properly applied, the oddest part of the incident raised the question of why this lesbian would go to the priest, Fr. Marcel Guarnizo, in the sacristy and share with him the fact of her lesbian activity and her intention to go to Communion.
Tom Peters, the young papist, has a good post on the woman in question. It includes a confirmation of the fact that she is also a self-identifying Buddhist. And she is apparently pretty eager to tell people about herself.
All this against the backdrop of legislation for same-sex unnatural unions in the state of Maryland where it all took place.
So, we circle back to the strong possibility that the priest was targeted, set up. So, though it is speculation, it appears that she could well have instrumentalized her dead mother to set a trap, knowing that press would find it all very juicy, in order to push her agenda.
Some might call me overly suspicious.
