    A Catholic diocese in New Jersey is canceling a talk offered by Fr. James Martin, S.J., best known for his attempts to normalize homosexuality. The celebrity Jesuit had been scheduled to offer a Lenten reflection on February 15, at Our Lady of Lourdes parish in the diocese of Metuchen. The diocese announced Martin's speaking engagement this month in its newspaper, The Catholic Spirit. The communications director for the diocese of Metuchen, Erin Friedlander, confirmed with Church Militant on Friday that the parish "is no longer hosting the planned talk." According to the inside source, the invitation had originated in the...

    Change the Catechism. If its doctrine does not coincide with the new desired orthodoxy concerning homosexuality, it will be better to adopt the solution of Alexander the Great, who with one stroke of his sword decided to untangle the Gordian knot in his own way: by cutting it in two.In the same way, in order to accept and definitively clear the way for homo-erotic practice, it is necessary to address the fundamentals, and from there everything will be easier. Now that an attitude of laxity and acceptance of homosexuality as a natural variant of human sexuality is becoming increasingly common,...

    Pope Francis called “discernment” the special charism of the Jesuits while meeting Jesuits in Chile. According to an article of Father Jonathan Marín Cano SJ on (January 19) Francis said that "discernment" was "especially" needed in the field of morality - as if discernment were not the basic tool of every science. He went on identifying "discernment" as the centre of his controversial document Amoris Laetitia. The problem: Francis uses the term “discernment” not in its original meaning ("the ability to judge well") but as an euphemism for “situation ethics” which is condemned by the Church because it allows...

    In a January 16, 2018 “Commentary” for “The National Catholic Reporter,” Creighton University Professor Todd A. Salzman, chair of the Department of Theology at Creighton, and Michael G. Lawler, professor emeritus, disagreed with the decision by certain US Bishops to possibly deny a Catholic funeral for someone who died while in a same-sex “married” relationship. They single out Bishop Thomas Paprocki of the Diocese of Springfield for specific criticism. From of a “Decree” issued by Paprocki, Salzman and Lawler are especially troubled with the following directive: Unless they have given some signs of repentance before their death, deceased persons who...

Now I have entered this man’s life as a hospice chaplain, and he does not quite know what to make of me.It is not the first time I have been asked the question.

     In a recent interview, James Martin, S.J., clearly implied (by repeating gay-advocacy talking-points) that language in “The Catechism of the Catholic Church” directly contributes to the high level of teen suicides among LGBT young people. [Interviewer] Well the people who’ve seen your book or know something about you are complaining that you want to rewrite some of the Catechism to differently ordered, can you speak about that. [Martin] Yeah, well part of the Catechism says that homosexual people are objectively disordered; their actions are objectively disordered and they themselves are intrinsically disordered. And so basically what I’m saying in the book is you...

    Another Christmas, another chance to attack Jesus Christ, and His One True Church. This year, tragically, the culprit happens to be a radical liberal Catholic priest.Last week, Father Kevin O’Brien, dean of the Jesuit School of Theology at Santa Clara University, recorded a video with the pro-sodomite, pro-abortion, Marxist propaganda website in which he proudly declared that there is no such thing as a "War On Christmas", and that the idea of said "war" is just a "distraction".Right...

    Pro-homosexual priest and Vatican adviser Fr. James Martin tweeted an immodest mockery of Our Lady of Guadalupe earlier this week that Mexican Catholics are calling “highly offensive” and “blasphemous.”  The Jesuit priest and editor-at-large of America Magazine tweeted three images based on the supernatural image of Our Lady of Guadalupe that were created by a feminist who “questioned this common icon of the ideal woman.”  One of the images tweeted by Fr. Martin depicts a woman with a hiked up skirt that reveals her thighs. She brandishes a serpent in her right hand. LifeSiteNews has pixelated the depiction.  “Mira! Look...

Yet it was recently subjected to a barrage of criticism and activist efforts that very nearly cost it its official status as a university organization, and it continues to be targeted by opponents.This fall, Love Saxa, a student group committed to the Catholic Church’s teaching on marriage, was accused of being a “hate group” because it did...

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...

    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...

    n the preface to a book that presents eight of his interviews, just out in bookstores, Francis has lifted the veil on a couple of rather interestig things. At a certain point the pope writes:“Sometimes in my interviewers I have noted - even in those who say they are very far from the faith - great intelligence and erudition. And even, in some cases, the capacity to let themselves be touched by the ‘touch’ of Pascal. This moves me, and I treasure it greatly.”The first is in reality more a confirmation than a revelation. It is his affectionate esteem for...

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...

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...
