Father James Martin, SJ has a problem with power. He craves it, as an addict dreams of the needle.
What do I mean? On the issue that most threatens the coherence of Christian churches and their liberty in America, Martin collaborates with the Church's persecutors: the powerful, prestigious, and culturally glamorous LGBT lobby. You know, the group that can get people fired, shamed, and in some places even prosecuted for cleaving to Christian orthodoxy. Yet Martin pretends that his stance is somehow courageous. When faithful Catholics speak out against him, he accuses them of "hate speech," which in some places is borderline illegal. He casts the organizations that criticize his stance as "extremists," even "alt-right." He's trying to smear orthodox Christians with the dung-soaked brush of disgraceful racism.
Most recently, some lay Catholics protested Martin’s appearance at a parish in New Jersey. As LifeSiteNews reports:
A lay Catholic group known for its fidelity to Church teaching on life, marriage, and family has successfully campaigned to have a Catholic parish cancel a talk offered by pro-homosexual priest and Vatican adviser Fr. James Martin. The Jesuit priest is now on a warpath against the Catholic group, slamming them on social media as “bullies.”
