Skip to comments.Jesuit priest cites Pope Francis in praising Catholic student activism backing gay marriage

A Jesuit parish priest who marched in a homosexual parade is now citing Pope Francis to protest the dismissal of an Eastside Catholic High School vice principal following his same-sex marriage, according to the priests Facebook site.
In December, The Cardinal Newman Society reported on the forced resignation of Vice Principal Mark Zmuda at a Catholic high school in the Archdiocese of Seattle.
Students at Eastside Catholic High School subsequently created a petition at Change.org, calling on the Catholic Church to end its opposition to same-sex marriage. The students are also reportedly planning a Z day nationwide protest on January 31 to support Zmuda and urge a change in Church teaching.
In light of the burgeoning protests, Father John Whitney, S.J., wrote in his piece entitled The Acts of the Orange and Blue Apostles that he believes Pope Francis would approve of the students protests and that they are an example that other Catholics should follow.
Fr. Whitney defended his marching in the Seattle gay pride parade in his parish bulletin and invited parishioners to join him. In that bulletin, he compared the Churchs teaching to Old Testament dietary restrictions.
In a 2012 interview with NPR, he called the bishops position defending traditional marriage a denial of civil rights.

I don’t know if Francis works for the devil but he is certainly used by him!
I keep hoping the Catholic Church will return to morality.
I do not believe the Pope did this.
If he did, that cinches it.
The gays will have successfully infected the church beyond recovery.
Why hasn’t John Whitney been defrocked?
Why isn’t Cardinal Law in prison?

Get a sign from GOD first, that HE has changed his mind about the evil of homosex.
(Hint: I wouldn’t hold my breath if I were y’all.)
He ought to be.
This Pope seems to be a good man. I don’t believe the mischaracterizations about him.
Would that they used as much of their power to turn back an erring humanity as they do enabling the error!
Right now, I take great solace that, as in time of Jesus - light shines brightest against darkness...
you can always rely on the jesuits
there will come a time when even the very elect will be deceived.....
Mat_24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
There have been “many” popes.
That’s not what the Bible teaches. You changed the meaning of the verse. You can’t forget “if it were possible (KJV).
“For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.” (Matthew 24:24)
The elect are not fooled, or they aren’t fooled for long, by popes and other false Christs. In John 10, Christ said, “But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you. My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.”
His sheep hear His voice and they follow Him, not false Christs, not popes.
And we will see where this pope falls in time
