Calling Up A Kohen Twice

In the shul's Halacha Summary for this coming week, it says the following:

"If there is no Levi in shul, the Cohen who received the first portion is called again for the second portion."

While this does seem to be the prevalent custom, the Rebbe shlit"a has said that this practice "has no pshat", and it is better for that Kohen to stand outside (where he can hear the laining), and they should call up three Yisraelim instead. The Minchas Elazar held the same way (as brought in the Munkatcher Siddur).
