In a televised interview on Tuesday, the pro-gay Jesuit celebrity priest spoke with CNN's Christiane燗manpour.燬he asked Fr. Martin about the priest sex abuse scandal. She noted that traditionalists are discontent with the pope燽ut so are liberals. Father Martin agreed that Pope Francis has fallen short of handling sex abuse, especially regarding bishops who cover up abusive priests. He said, "You have priests who are removed immediately, but what do you with bishops? And...

    In 1968, Jorge Mario Bergoglio was a novice in the Society of Jesus. And now that he is pope he is making no mystery of what he thinks about the 搒ocial upheaval, his own words, of that year which has become legendary. Some of it is already known to the ambassadors accredited to the Holy See, who in the discourse that Francis addressed to them at the beginning of this year had thrown back into their faces precisely what the pope maintains to be the perverse effects of 68. It was the first time that Bergoglio had his say over...

    The Bible抯 condemnation of homosexual acts should be taken in 揷ontext with Biblical times, Jesuit Father James Martin told Georgetown University students recently. Martin said as well that Catholics who support gay 搈arriage should have no problem considering themselves Catholic, despite having chosen to reject Church teaching. Martin inferred at his January 31 appearance at the Jesuit school that the Bible抯 negative pronouncements on homosexual acts which are grounded in natural law are like other Biblical declarations on topics such as the practice of charging interest on a loan. These pronouncements being made during a particular epoch renders...

    When Pope Benedict XVI went to Fatima, Portugal, in 2010 he denounced abortion and same-sex marriage,燾alling them, "some of today's most insidious and dangerous threats to the common good." Father Martin, however, called Pope Benedict's comments on same-sex marriage bizarre: Pope Benedict XVI's comments last week in Fatima, Portugal, in which he stated that abortion and same-sex marriage, were "some of today's most insidious and dangerous threats" to the common good seemed oddly discordant. The equation of abortion, something that clearly is about a threat to life, with same-sex marriage which no matter how you look at it, does...

    When it was announced last year that Fr. James Martin, SJ, was being brought in as a 揷onsultor to the Vatican抯 communications team, reactions were predictably on a spectrum ranging from deeply perplexed to blood-vessel bursting outrage. Known for his role as editor-at-large for the far-left Catholic rag燗merica Magazine燼s well as his boundary-pushing views on the Church and homosexuality, Fr. Martin is the kind of name that gets an instant reaction when brought up in any conversation. And among orthodox Catholics, it抯 decidedly not a positive one. Fr. Martin became the second high-profile Jesuit to join the Vatican抯 propaganda arm,...

    Clericalism is Alive and Well in Amchurch! Does Fr. Martin follow the Holy Spirit or the Spirit of this world? I'm always amused by accusations that orthodox Catholics who uphold the teachings of the Church are filled with fear, hatred, homophobia, anger, and are bullies, raging maniacs...well, you get the picture. James Martin, also known as "Father," a Jesuit sadly reflective of the state to which that order has fallen, recently had another talk cancelled. It was due to the "haters" who run nasty, evil, vilifying...well you get the picture... websites and blogs that (sniff, sniff) result in the "censorship"...

    James Martin, S.J. has had a conference cancelled at a parish. It has been moved to a private venue. Below the picture below of a recent Tweet, is his comment on the matter on his Facebook page. He refers to those who oppose his dissent from the faith being promoted in our parishes as "hate mongers and bullies." Full disclosure: I do not hate anyone suffering from same-sex attraction. I have three friends, all who formerly engaged in same-sex behaviour and have all overcome it. One is married to a woman. The other two are celibate and chaste faithful men....

    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 揹iscernment the special charism of the Jesuits while meeting Jesuits in Chile. According to an article of Father Jonathan Mar韓 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 揹iscernment not in its original meaning ("the ability to judge well") but as an euphemism for 搒ituation ethics which is condemned by the Church because it allows...

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 搈arried relationship. They single out Bishop Thomas Paprocki of the Diocese of Springfield for specific criticism. From of a 揇ecree 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...

[Interviewer] Well the people who抳e seen your book or know something about you are complaining that you want to rewrite some of the Catechism to燿ifferently 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抦 saying in the book is you...
