    A U.K. Cardinal appointed by Pope Francis has given his blessing for a pro-homosexual organization to once again work in his archdiocese after his predecessor banned it because of its overt promotion of homosexual behavior contrary to Catholic teaching.  In a communication a little over a week ago to priests in the Archdiocese of Westminster, Cardinal Vincent Nichols recommended that they make use of the organization Quest to minister to “those who live with a same-sex attraction and are often very anxious about their journey to God and their relationship with the Church.” The letter was leaked to LifeSiteNews.  “Quest,...

    A British Government education watchdog ordered the Holy Ghost Catholic Primary School in London to remove “mother” and “father” in their admission form in order to please “separated, step and gay parents”. The Bishops’ Catholic Education Service, known for accommodating to gay ideology, is now drafting a new form for its 2,230 Catholic schools. The form will only refer to “the family”. Many schools already use “parent 1” and “parent 2”. The Sunday Times cites an expert who called this decision “profoundly undemocratic, illiberal and a capitulation to a form of politically correct fascism”.

    Robin Teresa Beck, 59, lived through 12 lesbian relationships over the course of 35 years before her dramatic conversion to the Catholic faith and healing from homosexuality, just five years ago. Read LifeSiteNews’ coverage of Robin’s dramatic story here. Read the full interview here. Beck spoke with LifeSiteNews over the phone from her home in Michigan in the Detroit area about everything from the impossibility of creating a healthy gay relationship, to why lesbian relationships can never fulfill the emotional needs of women, to how she believes God looks on people struggling with homosexuality, to how the Church should approach...

    A Christian couple in the Canadian province of Alberta have been told by local Catholic Social Services and the provincial government that they are unfit to adopt children because they accept Biblical teaching regarding the immorality of homosexual acts, according to their attorneys at the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms. The married couple, whose initials are given as “C.D. and N.D,” have filed a civil suit against the province alleging religious discrimination, and calling the decision to reject their candidacy for adoption “unreasonable and void by virtue of arbitrariness, bias, bad faith, as well as breaches of procedural fairness and...

    U.S. Cardinal Blase Cupich praised Jesuit Fr. James Martin for being what he called the “foremost evangelizer” of young people in the Church today.  “He really is one of the, if not the foremost evangelizer in the Church today, especially for young people,” said the Pope Francis-appointed Cardinal, who is the Archbishop of Chicago, while speaking at The University of Chicago Institute of Politics on Monday.  Martin, a Vatican consultant and editor-at-large of the Jesuit-run America magazine, is one of the most recognized proponents of homosexuality within the Catholic Church today.  The Jesuit priest has called for the Church to...

He also upheld the teachings of the Church concerning same-sex attraction, especially with regard to the priests in his diocese. His body was found by fishermen in the Sanaga River, near Monatele, on June 2.  What was at first assumed to be suicide, is gradually coming to light as a brutal murder that reportedly may have been presided over by a coup of homosexual Catholic priests:Investigators found signs of torture on his body. Catholic bishops in Cameroon said this bishop, whose body was pulled from a river in early...

    How Much Longer Must We Tolerate This Wayward Priest? by Christopher A. Ferrara October 26, 2017 Father James Martin, SJ and his “Gay Church” juggernaut are on a roll, and anyone, even a bishop, who gets in his way must be crushed. Emboldened by the support of “gay”-friendly bishops and even cardinals, virtually all installed by Pope Francis, Martin dares to attack publicly a non-Francis bishop, Robert C. Morlino (consecrated by John Paul II in 1999) because his diocese of Madison, Wisconsin has published guidelines on avoiding scandal in the conduct of funerals for deceased involved in “gay marriage” or other...

    Pope Francis is one of the most hated men in the world today. Those who hate him most are not atheists, or protestants, or Muslims, but some of his own followers. Outside the church he is hugely popular as a figure of almost ostentatious modesty and humility. From the moment that Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio became pope in 2013, his gestures caught the world’s imagination: the new pope, carried his own bags and settled his own bills in hotels; he asked, of gay people, “Who am I to judge?” and washed the feet of Muslim women refugees. But within the church,...

    Ireland's future, with the legalization of same-sex marriage already passed, and abortion up for a referendum next year, doesn't look bright. An inside source at Ireland's national seminary gave an update that produces more concerns than hope. On Wednesday, Church Militant spoke to an inside source at St. Patrick's College, Ireland's national seminary in Maynooth. The seminary, founded in 1795 and built to house 500 seminarians, has produced 11,000 priests. Once the largest seminary in the world, the now scandal-ridden seedbed of priests is but a shadow of its former greatness. With currently only 30 seminarians, half of them...

    Father James Martin the notorious homosexualist is commending an excommunicated priest who revealed he was also a homosexual while married to an ex-nun. Gregory Baum died on October 18 at 94 years old. America Magazine — the liberal-progressive magazine published by the Jesuits and of which Martin is editor at large — published an article, extolling Baum's alleged contributions to the Church's ecumenical relations with the Jews but mentioned little of the issue that brought him into the limelight. Not only was Baum a priest and adviser during the Second Vatican Council in Rome in the 1960's, but he also...

The whole preparation program is based on the Francis exhortation "Amoris Laetitia", and is named "Amoris". The corrosive nature of this wicked pontificate is destroying all things that are true, loving, and beautiful in its path. The smoke of Satan first mentioned by Paul VI has blackened the whole interior of a...

    A fascinating admission surfaced recently in the whole firestorm surrounding James Martin S.J. – an admission that shouldn’t go unnoticed. Writing in defense of Father Martin in the liberal Catholic journal Commonweal, John Gehring begins, “If you’re looking for a Catholic priest who inspires people – and makes them laugh and think – James Martin, S.J., is your guy. At the Ignatian Solidarity Network’s annual conference, he’s greeted like a rock star by swarms of young Catholics who devour his books and remember him as Stephen Colbert’s ‘chaplain’ on the Colbert Report.” Ah, well, there you are then, you know...

    Two left-leaning Catholic bishops, along with “married” homosexual partners, celebrated a special Mass for "Families of the LGBT Community" in San Diego last weekend. The event commemorated the 20-year anniversary of a controversial U.S. bishops’ letter on homosexuality that was censured by the Vatican within a year of its release.   Bishop John Dolan, an auxiliary bishop in the Diocese of San Diego, presided over the October 7 mass commemorating the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops' (USCCB) letter on homosexuality "Always Our Children.”  The mass, concelebrated with San Diego Archbishop Robert McElroy and 16 other clergy, took place at St....

    In Missouri, Bp. John Gaydos' commitment to a pro-gay diocesan measure continues to stoke tensions in the diocese of Jefferson City. On October 7, Catholics from across the Show-Me State gathered in Jefferson City to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Missouri Catholic Conference. The celebration was a momentous affair, featuring prelates Abp. Christophe Pierre, papal nuncio to the United States, and St. Louis Abp. Robert J. Carlson, in addition to Bp. Gaydos. Meanwhile, roughly two dozen faithful Catholics came together to pray the Rosary outside St. Joseph Cathedral during the commemoration's closing Mass. The vigil was organized as an...

    Bishop Robert McElroy of San Diego wrote a column about James Martin SJ that said Martin’s critics are a cancer on the Church, that criticism of his work is driven by homophobia, a distortion of Catholic moral theology, and is an attack on Pope Francis. This shameful column was applauded by a chorus including Elizabeth Scalia, the editor of one of the largest Catholic websites in the country, Austen Ivereigh, founder of Catholic Voices, Massimo Faggioli of Villanova University, among others.James Martin himself has taken to calling his critics the “Catholic alt-right,” a phrase he likes very much and has...

    Jesuit Fr. James Martin, well-known for his attempts to normalize homosexuality in the Church, claims ex-gays lead a less "integrated life" than current gays. In an August 29 interview with Brandon Ambrosino, a gay man engaged to his male partner, Martin said: I know just for the record that a lot of the people who are critiquing me online are self-professed ... former gays. So it's a lot of former gay people. And I would say that there's a lot of conflict going on. So it's sad because what happens is their own junk inside gets focused outwards on people who...
