CORDOBA, Argentina — Archbishop Carlos Nanez of Cordoba, Argentina, explained that the recent baptism of a baby who is being raised by her biological mother and the woman’s lesbian partner is not an endorsement of their lifestyle.
Rather, he said in statements to CNA, the case “is like that of any other person who asks for baptism.”
“The one who is receiving baptism is the girl. It is her right,” he underscored.
His comments came in response to the baptism of Umma Azul at the cathedral of Cordoba on April 5. Azul is the biological daughter of Soledad Ortiz, a woman who contracted a civil marriage with her same-sex partner Kartina Villarroel under Argentinian law last year.
