BARNESVILLE, Minn. If you want to be a Catholic, you have to be 100 percent Catholic.
Thats the lesson one family here learned after their 17-year-old son was denied confirmation after the priest at the Assumption Church here found a pro same-sex marriage post on the teens Facebook.
The decision by the Rev. Gary LaMoine 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.

Good. At least this priest takes things seriously.
As a Catholic school teacher, this is VERY welcome. :)
But Father, he's such a good boy.
Rev. Gary LaMoine bump!
Great...but will the bishop back up the priest?
Well, isn't that special. He could do that over at the local Unitarian Universalist congregation ... perhaps he would be more at home there?
Or perhaps he should repent of his support for institutionalized perversion. "Gay marriage" is an oxymoron, and a mockery of a Sacrament.
Kudos to Fr. LaMoine.

Someone tell the Catholic Church. It is amazing the number of “Buffet Catholics” who actually take Communion.
They should call themselves Protestants and move on.
Still, Doug insists hes not mad at LaMoine, calling him just a messenger of the church. The same could not be said for his wife, who said she doesnt plan on returning to the church ever again, her son nodding in agreement.
You should be able to go to a church for support, help, Lennon said. He pushed me away.
Those damn papists ... who told them they could stick to the truth? Who do they think they're following? Jesus?
We can’t be cafeteria Catholics?
Good. I don’t see what’s the problem.
Love how the dad is now worried about being able to be buried next to his parents. THATS why you need to deny the heretics communion, use of the Church for weddings and funerals. Only when they see there is a price to pay will they start to worry. Watching Pelosi and Biden pay no price gives these “cinos” no reason to examine their mistakes.
Yes this is good. If you want to be catholic you must espouse catholic values and dogma...
Catholicism is not a pick and choose what you want kind of faith. Purging the rolls so to speak of those who would pervert Catholicism is a good thing. Our numbers will be smaller but our faith and witness greater.
The cafeteria is closed.
They should move to Montgomery County Md. There is a parish there where a lesbian can get a priest fired because he has the gall to refuse her communion when she brings her “partner” along for the funeral mass for her mother.
Who pushed who away? So sad, they have ears but cannot hear, eyes but cannot see.
That is very true. When the priests and bishops really start enforcing things, it does have an impact.
"Lennon" is right, at least, about that. And he got the help he needed. He didn't get the support he wanted. Big difference.
Supporting sin and perversion is not help. It is destruction of body and soul.
The "help" he should expect is instruction on right and wrong; the "support" he should expect is to repent of his sins, and seek God's grace to avoid those sins in the future.
