‘Abomination’: Priest poses with
drag queens in sanctuary of Catholic Church
CANARIA, Spain, August 1, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – A priest
in the Canary Islands posed with drag
queens in the sanctuary of a Catholic church
after letting the men use the church rectory as a temporary
Photos show Fr. Fernando Báez in a parish in La Breña,
Gran Canaria, Spain, posing in the midst of almost a dozen

Gloria TV News called the photo op an “abomination.”
In Spanish, a Facebook user identified as GregoBagon warned
the priest on his social media page that he will one day have
to be judged by Jesus Christ. God, warnsBagon, will judge
the priest’s “scandalous attitudes.”
Parishioners have also reportedly contacted the local bishop
to demand that the priest be recalled from the parish of La
But the vicar general of Gran Canaria, Hipólito Cabrera,
has reportedly kept mum about the incident with the drag queens,
calling it an internal matter for the parish.
According to news reports, there were 10 drag queens in the
church, all of them taking part in a July 7 gala in the multi-purpose
Narea building in nearby Telde during celebrations ostensibly
in honor of Saint Joseph and the Virgin of the Pine. The drag
show was called "Gala Drag Queen de Telde"
Those celebrations attracted about 350 people. Father Báez,
attended that drag show as a spectator.
The parish priest is reported to have publicly dismissed the
Marian apparition upon which that celebration is based. He
has also denied the existence of the Virgin of the Pine, venerated
since 1481 for having appeared atop a pine on Sept. 8 of that
year in Las Palmas on Gran Canaria.
The Virgin Mary has never appeared to anyone, not in Gran
Canaria, Fatima or Lourdes, Father Báez has reportedly
claimed. He has apparently insisted that Our Lady only ever
existed in Nazareth, Bethlehem, Jerusalem and Egypt –
and nowhere else.
