8 Year Old Kevin Denied First Communion Because of Cerebral Palsy

It was a religious milestone Irma Castro spent months preparing her grandson Kevin for, but when it came time for his first communion, he was denied.

"It hurts and I think it's a form of discrimination," Castro said.

Castro was told by Pastor, Father Phil Henning, with the Sacred Heart Catholic Church of Floresville, that because Kevin had cerebral palsy and has the mental capacity of a 6-month-old, he didn't qualify to receive his first communion.

WTF. It's because of these kind of people that causes me to be remain skeptical of organized religion. This little boy probably has more Angels of God surrounding him than this Catholic church could ever understand.
What an embarrassment.
