Lesbians at Corboda Cathedral Atrgentina 01

Child of lesbians baptized at Cordoba Cathedral

Yesterday, April 5, 2014, the baptism of a girl, daughter of a lesbian couple, above, took place in the Cathedral of Cordoba, Argentina. The celebrant was Fr. Carlos Varas, who had the full authorization of the Archbishop of Cordoba, Msgr. Carlos Jose Nanez.

"We had an audience with Archbishop Nanez and he told us that there would be no problem for the baby to be baptized in the Cathedral," affirmed one of the lesbians.

Church sources admitted to the press that "if Jorge Bergoglio were not Pope, it would have been more complicated" for this baptism to be authorized. Indeed, in 2012, the then Archbishop of Buenos Aires - today Pope Francis - called priests who do not administer baptism to any baby "hypocrites." He was referring principally to the children of single mothers, but today that rule is also applied to children adopted by lesbian and homosexual couples. Besides, it is unlikely that Nanez would have made such a decision without an approval by the Vatican.

The lesbians asked Argentina President Cristina Kirchner to be the godmother of the baby. She accepted and sent  proxies representing her.
