Louisiana Priest Denies Married Gay Man Communion At His Mother’s Funeral

ERBIL, IRAQ - DECEMBER 07:  Communion is taken during Mass at St Joseph's Cathedral in the Ankawa district of Erbil, which has become home to thousands of displaced Iraq Christians who were forced to flee their homes as Islamic State advanced earlier this year on December 7, 2014 in Erbil, Iraq. Although the autonomous Kurdistan region of Northern Iraq was already a refuge for an estimated 250,000 Syrian refugees, since the Islamic State began its onslaught on Iraq in June, Kurdistan has also taken in more than one and a half million displaced people. Many have been placed in purpose-built refugee camps but the huge numbers mean thousands of others are forced to live in un-finished buildings or inadequate, makeshift shelters and as winter in the region closes in, there are growing concerns for the welfare of the refugees who, while their homes are still in ISIL controlled territory, have no realistic prospect of returning to them.
