In the diocese of San Luis, Argentina, the logical chickens of “integrating weakness” (Amoris Laetitia, Ch. 8) are coming home to roost.
On Aug. 28, 2020, the Novus Ordo news site Crux reported:
Marking an historical first in Pope Francis’s home country, the Diocese of San Luis in northern Argentina invited a transgender woman Tuesday to read one of the prayer intentions at a public Mass celebrated by the local bishop.
The invitation was issued to Francia López by civil officials to recognize the work she does among the city’s poorer, daily feeding 400 people from a soup kitchen she runs. It came without the advance knowledge of the new bishop, Gabriel Barba, who took over the diocese July 11, and who chose a small village outside of the diocesan metropolitan area to celebrate his first Mass.

This “bishop’s Mass” on Aug. 25 was not just any, but was the man’s first such liturgy for the patronal feast of the diocese (St. Louis IX).
The term “transgender woman” is the politically-correct way to say male cross-dressing sodomite who pretends to be a woman. The man in question goes by “Francia Gabriela López” — his real name is not known to us.
Although, as the quoted excerpt says, the celebrant (“Bp.” Gabriel Barba) did not know about this beforehand, he certainly doesn’t object in principle at all. The concern he expressed was, rather, that it was too much, too soon for the diocese he had just been appointed to shepherd: “Once Barba learned of the invitation … he didn’t object, and he might have issued one himself eventually. He was concerned that including a transgender woman would be seen as a too big a step, too soon….” (ibid.).
More details can be found in the following reports, albeit in Spanish:

- “La iglesia conciliar de San Luis celebró la fiesta patronal con la participación de un sujeto transexual” (Radio Cristiandad)
The Argentinian news channel Telam has released a short video clip reporting on the abomination:
The day after, Mr. Lopez was interviewed about the invitation he had received:
Reporting on the above interview, the Catholic News Agency‘s Spanish-language sister org, ACI Prensa, comments that Lopez “turned his participation into a political statement in favor of the LGBT collective.” Furthermore, the article reveals that “Bp.” Barba had an active role in the scandal after all:
López was initially invited by the city council, which traditionally collaborates with church authorities in planning the Mass. According to Lopez, when the new bishop learned the night before that he had been invited to the restricted participation celebration because of the pandemic, he decided to actively include him in the ceremony, offering to read the second prayer request of the faithful.

This news is just breaking in the English-speaking world, so we have not seen many reactions yet.
One we have seen was entirely predictable: It comes from “Pope” Francis’ communications advisor and professional hellboy “Fr.” James Martin, who has been ecstatic about the matter:
“It’s essential to include all the faithful in the Prayers of the Faithful, and that includes LGBTQ people,” [James Martin] told Crux. “That means we pray for their needs and we also invite them to pray. Bishop Barba was acting as a true pastor in welcoming a transgender woman to pray in the cathedral.”
Martin, who last year met with Pope Francis in the Vatican, when the pope reportedly encouraged him to continue with his ministry, said López is “a child of God, a baptized Catholic, and a full member of the church. And for anyone who doubts this: it is surely not a sin simply to be a transgender person.”
(Inés San Martín, “Transgender woman’s role at Mass stirs controversy in Argentina”, Crux, Aug. 28, 2020)
It won’t matter to “Fr.” Martin, but St. Paul the Apostle had something else to say about how “baptized children of God” like Lopez are to be accompanied:
But now I have written to you, not to keep company, if any man that is named a brother, be a fornicator, or covetous, or a server of idols, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner: with such a one, not so much as to eat. For what have I to do to judge them that are without? Do not you judge them that are within? For them that are without, God will judge. Put away the evil one from among yourselves.
(1 Corinthians 5:11-13)
It is one thing to be a sinner; it is quite another thing to proudly wear one’s sins on one’s sleeve. The only type of “accompaniment” the Church offers to that kind is being accompanied right out the door.
There is a reason for that: “Evil communications corrupt good manners” (1 Cor 15:33). Yes, we are all sinners, but our sins belong in the confessional. They are to be deplored, repented of, and made reparation for — and not celebrated, flaunted, or affirmed.
While Hellboy Martin thinks himself to be an oh-so merciful chap, in reality he is being most cruel to unhappy men like Lopez, whose immortal souls Christ died to redeem as well; for he (Martin) is blocking that possibility of salvation by affirming and celebrating their sins.
Liberation theologian Leonardo Boff was right about him.
