Elojia Macias may hear the beat of a different drummer, but a judge says she must get in tune with the rest of her church's flock.
In a lawsuit, Father Alexander Wangler of Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic Church in San Antonio accused Macias of disrupting church services by singing her own songs, causing "confusion and disruption."At first she sang from her pew, the lawsuit said, but then she got up and started singing through the sound system.
Because of her actions, the church suffered a "loss of good will, spiritual tranquility and membership," the lawsuit said.
State District Judge John Specia issued an injunction Thursday ordering Macias to cooperate or risk being held in contempt of court.
Father Wangler said the first test should occur at Sunday's 9 a.m. Mass.
