Fr. James Martin, S.J.: "Church teaching on LGBT people is a great deal more than just the few lines in the Catechism that deal with homosexuality."
It appears the Vatican is showing favoritism toward a particular outspoken American priest — a priest who uses every opportunity to promote a spiritually lethal LGBT agenda. Church Militant's Kim Tisor explains the latest involving Fr. James Martin.
There is not a faithful Catholic in America who doesn't shudder at the false teachings pushed by Fr. James Martin.
Fr. Martin: "Don't let people make you feel guilty about who you are. It's like being born left-handed or right-handed. God wants you to know yourself and accept the amazing gift that you are."
The Church teaches homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered, yet Martin asserts chastity is not required of those with same-sex attraction and Catholics should reverence same-sex so-called marriage. Despite Martin's public LGBT advocacy, the Vatican has reappointed him to another five-year term as a consultor for the Vatican's Dicastery for Communication — an office that coordinates the Apostolic See's entire communications network.
Martin announced the news yesterday.
The appointment is just another sign Pope Francis condones his fellow Jesuit's blatant disregard for Church teaching. Two months after Martin was appointed to the dicastery the first time in 2017, his stridently pro-LGBT book, Building a Bridge, hit bookshelves, sparking a documentary. The following year, Pope Francis invited Fr. Martin to speak at the World Meeting of Families to discuss how churches can welcome supposed LGBT Catholics.
Then there are letters Francis penned to Martin affirming his LGBT "ministry" — praising him as a "priest for all men and women, just as God is the Father for all men and women." Never is there mention that God is also judge of all and requires obedience, an unfaltering message one would expect a Vatican dicastery to promote.
Pope Francis instituted the Dicastery for Communication in 2015. Its scope is significant. It oversees the Holy See's official website, press office, daily newspaper, publishing house, printing press and more.
