D.C. archdiocese: Denying Communion to lesbian at funeral was against ‘policy’
Note from GLAAD
The Diocese of Washington DC has apologized to the family, however, they might have still denied Barbara Johnson communion.
Deep in grief, Barbara Johnson stood first in the line for Communion at her mother’s funeral Saturday morning. But the priest in front of her immediately made it clear that she would not receive the sacramental bread and wine.
