You Are Here: Home » Featured, Religious Morons and Anti-Gay Idiots » Jesus Christ! – Catholic Church Refuses To Confirm Teen After Pro-Gay Marriage Facebook Post

A Catholic priest at the Assumption Church in Barnesville, MN found a pro same-sex marriage post on the teenagers Facebook page and is now refusing to allow 17-year-old Lennon Cihak to be confirmed with the rest of his class.

The decision by the Rev. Gary LaMoine (218-354-7320 )to deny the religious rite of passage for Lennon Cihak in mid-October shocked his mother, who said her son has gone to church every week and volunteered around the community in preparation for his confirmation this year. “You kind of know the Catholic beliefs, but I never thought they would deny somebody confirmation because you weren’t 100 percent. I guess that’s what shocks me,” Shana Cihak said. Lennon said fellow students in his confirmation class “liked” the photo on Facebook, but they were still allowed to be confirmed. “I just thought it was wrong to single him out,” Shana said. Her husband, Doug Cihak, agreed. “(LaMoine) was talking about ‘God doesn’t believe in this.’ Well, God created Lennon,” said Doug, adding that he was baptized and raised in the same church. But now the family is not allowed to participate in Communion there, Doug said, and he’s worried as to how far the sanctions will go, expressing concern about being able to be buried alongside his parents.

Every time I think the Roman Catholic Church has sunk to a new lower level of arrogance, they surprise me with yet another record low-level.  The Vatican is looking more and more like the Mafia daily

When a church no longer serves its members but expects its members to serve it, it has failed.

And I would like to know why a Catholic Priest was looking at a 17 year old boys Facebook page in the first place?

Actually nevermind.  I have an idea why.

    The Catholic Church is a disgusting organization so this action doesn’t shock me. I also want to know why they priest was looking at a 17 year old boy’s facebook page. That family should just leave the church along with anybody else who is in favor of gay marriage, against pedophiles, and believes that condoms should be passed out in AIDS stricken Africa instead of bibles.
