Gay-activist priests should not speak at Catholic colleges

Doug Mainwaring

September 19, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – The revocation of Fr. James Martin, SJ’s invitation to speak at Catholic University of America’s Theological College has sent out shock waves in the world of Catholic academics. As the certain members of the intellectual set circle the wagons in Martin’s defense, they elevate notions of ‘academic freedom’ above adherence to the authentic message of the Gospel.

Rank and file Catholics wonder, “Is it really the duty of Catholic institutions to provide a platform for messages antithetical to the Gospel?” read more

WASHINGTON, D.C., September 19, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – The withdrawal of Jesuit Father James Martin’s appearance next month at Catholic University of America-affiliated Theological College stirred reaction that continued into Monday and included San Diego Bishop Robert McElroy defending the controversial priest.

McElroy was among those who labeled reports and commentary on Father Martin’s LGBT stances as homophobia, censorship, “verbal violence,” and being a “cancer of vilification” in the Church. The bishop said Father Martin’s critics were overemphasizing chastity and they resent Pope Francis’ call for Catholics to move away from judging others. read more

Bishop Accuses: “Francis Is Tolerating Obvious Errors”

The validity of the commandments and of the entire moral law is at stake in the Church according to Bishop Athanasius Schneider.

Talking to onepeterfive.com he asserted that “the Pope is himself tolerating a wide dissemination of obvious errors of faith and of grave abuses of the sacraments (like the admittance of unrepentant adulterers to the sacraments)”.

Schneider compares this to a ship in a stormy sea, in which the captain ignores the obvious dangers, while the majority of his officers wrap themselves in silence, saying: “All is just fine on the sinking ship”. The few officers, who raise their voices, are grotesquely and unjustly criticized by their colleagues. read more

Fr. James Martin’s Homosexual Monologue at Catholic University Seminary is Cancelled.

Posted by TTC (The Tenth Crusade) on Sunday, September 17, 2017

Fr. James Martin’s Homosexual Monologue at Catholic University Seminary is Cancelled.

Story on WaPo

Caught in the middle of this rift is Martin. His book did not address his own sexuality, but these right-wing sites assign him labels such as “homosexualist.”

“My provincial asked me not to talk about my sexuality, and I’m okay with that,” said Martin, referring to his religious superior in the Jesuit religious order.

The seminary acted independently from the university, which hosted Martin last year.

Martin said this is the second cancellation of a talk due to the attacks. Seminary leaders told him they received a storm of messages and people screaming at receptionists over the phone. Martin is still planning to give an address in Washington at Holy Trinity Church on Sept. 30. read more

The Perfidious [Perverse] James Martin SJ

Then Jesus answered and said: “O unbelieving and perverse [Jesuit], how long shall I be with you? How long shall I suffer you? (Matthew 17:17; slight revision in brackets)

James Martin SJ is a liar leading souls to perdition. In a truly cowardly fashion, he refuses to engage his critics and seeks to silence them. This perfidious priest must be held accountable.

by Austin Ruse • Crisis Magazine via ChurchMilitant • September 16, 2017

James Martin SJ gallivants around the country telling young men and women that their sexual lifestyles are acceptable to the Church, which is not true; that the Church welcomes them no matter what they may be doing, which is certainly not true. read more

On Saturday at an ecumenical event in Bochum, Germany, Munich Cardinal Reinhard Marx called on Catholics and Protestants “to unite increasingly“.

According to German media, Marx said, “One must stop talking about a separation of the churches, because there are important agreements in the Faith.” There is widespread doubt whether Marx, a liberal-relativist who belongs to Pope Francis’ Council of Cardinals, is still fully aware of what the Catholic Faith is all about. read more
