NEW YORK (ChurchMilitant.com) - Fathr James Martin, S.J., the LGBT-promoting celebrity priest, is maintaining his constant promotion and support of homosxuality, sex outside of marriage, transgenderism and progressive-liberal politics is supported by his Jesuit superior and confreres, as well as "several cardinals and bishops, both publicly and privately."

In a series of tweets, Martin also claims "my prayer tells me that this is the right thing to do, that it's important and that it's a work of mercy."

He also accuses critics who call out his endorsement of sodomy as being "uncomfortable with their own complex sexuality."

In his new book, Building a Bridge: How the Catholic Church and the LGBT Community Can Enter Into a Relationship of Respect, Compassion, and Sensitivity, Martin continues the homosexualist mantra of denying Catholic Church teaching on human sexuality and natural law by telling homosexuals and so-called transgenders that God created them that way.
 
Martin has claimed the proscriptions listed in the Old Testament and those written by St. Paul in the New Testament "have to be understood in the historical context," adding that in the times of the Old Testament "they didn't understand the phenomenon of homosexuality and bi-sexuality as we do today."
 
He slammed Church teaching calling homosexual acts "objectively disordered," saying, "[F]or most LGBT people it is deeply offensive. Imagine being told that a deep part of you, the part that feels love, is disordered."
 
[F]or most LGBT people it is deeply offensive. Imagine being told that a deep part of you, the part that feels love, is disordered.

The Church has always taught, however, in accord with Natural Law, that there is only one rightly ordered sexuality, and any other sexuality, whatever it may be, is disordered.

Martin's book was also supported by dissidents like Cdl. Joseph Tobin of Newark, Bp. Robert McElroy of San Diego and New Ways Ministry, an organization condemned by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and the Vatican.

Even so, in 2016, Martin proudly accepted the Bridge Building award from New Ways Ministry "in recognition of his ministry of communication, which has helped to expand the dialogue on LGBT issues in the Catholic Church."
