From Huffington Post: Rev. Marcel Guarnizo Suspended: Priest Who Denied Communion To Lesbian Barbara Johnson, Withdrawn For ‘Intimidating Behavior’

Rev. Marcel Guarnizo, the priest who denied a lesbian woman communion at her mother’s funeral, has been suspended.

Father Marcel Guarnizo, who until his recent suspension served at Gaithersburg’s Saint John Neumann Catholic Church outside of Washington D.C., was reported to have covered the bowlcontaining the Eucharist as Barbara Johnson, who is a lesbian, approached him at her mother’s funeral.

The priest is reported to have told her: “I cannot give you communion because you live with a woman and that is a sin according to the church.”
