Argentinian priest suspended for having supported gay marriage

Jeanne Smits translates a report from Infocatolica.

José Nicolas Alessio underwent a canonical trial in the province of Cordoba and was found guilty of persistantly rejecting the doctrine on marriage, and of disobeying his ordinary, having expressed himself publicly in media against the Church's Magisterium. He is prohibited from celebrating the Eucharist, hearing confessions, celebrating other sacraments and may not live in the parish house.

From the sound of it, the priest did not know what hit him. He did not expect such a swift decision. He said : "They condemned and excluded me for having a different opinion."

No kidding, Sherlock.

The name of the local bishop is Msgr Carlos Ñañez. Promote that man!
