THE SERVANT GENERAL
ASSAULTS ON FAITH, FAMILY AND LIFE
HERETIC HOMOSEXUALIST AT THE WORLD MEETING OF FAMILIES
August 25, 2018
What a sad day it is when those whose actions will ultimately
work to destroy morality and traditional families are given
a strong voice in a major Vatican event, intended at that
to help strengthen families. What irony!
Fr. Martin wants to normalize and promote homosexuality. Such
is totally contrary to God’s design. And don’t
we have problems enough in our Church with homosexual predator
priests? Perhaps Fr. Martin would want to also normalize such
EPIC FAIL: FR. JAMES MARTIN AT THE WORLD MEETING
Church Militant • August 23, 2018
Worm-tongued eloquence from the homosexualist Jesuit
Homosexualist Jesuit Fr. James Martin spoke on Aug. 23 to
about 1,200 pilgrims at the much-touted and Vatican-sponsored
World Meeting of Families (WMOF) held this year in Dublin,
Ireland. His talk? "Showing Welcome and Respect in our
Parishes for 'LGBT' People and their Families." The talk
was immediately published at the America magazine website.
For this longtime observer of the harm Martin has done to
the Church and in keeping with all things "LGBTQIA"
his effort at the "WMOF" was "MOTS"
or "SSDD": more of the same; or same stuff, different
day. For anyone who knows the "both/and" that the
Church expects regarding the truth about homosexuality and
orthodox pastoral outreach to those with same-sex attraction,
Martin's slippery prose amounted to an epic failure to give
the faithful, the so-deeply-wounded People of God, what is
truly needed at this moment of crisis.
It cannot be stated too strongly that Martin
is a wolf in shepherd's clothing. That's not
an attack on him as a person, either it's merely a fair
description of what takes place when he merely opens his mouth
to speak. His words are well-crafted deliberately and
deftly sleek and calculated to dance artistically through
the minefield of truths that he so assiduously avoids. He
wants zero to do with these truths the core reality
of the homosexual condition. And like
a pied piper, he wants everyone who catches earshot of his
lilting tune to follow along, not much caring, it seems, whether
his followers ever experience the fullness of truth regarding
that reality, despite the fact that death can come either
physically or spiritually to those who remain ignorant to
the landmines Martin has them dancing around.
Martin speaks the politically correct LGBT-speak of secular
culture. He relies upon secular psychology which long
ago declared homosexuality to be "normal"
to trump Church teaching regarding the disordered reality
of the homosexual inclination. Instead, he fully assumes that
which ought to be proven first: namely, that there exists
a massive bias against"LGBT people" in Catholic
That one obvious misstep in this pied piper's dance is based
upon a further set of assumptions: 1) "gay is okay"
(not in need of healing); 2) "coming out" is healthy
and necessary; and 3) if you "come out" and people
respond negatively, you're being "excluded" and
"marginalized" by "homophobia."
That is what Martin assumes as his starting point for his
talk to families families attending this major
event. Not a single utterance about how being "LGBT"
is itself a particular cross borne by so many, a cross of
harm and suffering. No, the "LGBT" person and community
are both ship-shape and in need of nothing except complete,
utter and unmitigated acceptance.
But, wait shouldn't we warn them of the danger involved
both in their experience of the homosexual inclination as
well as acting on that inclination? Yeah, if you want to be
a bigot or homophobe, go ahead.
I trust that readers can read his speech for themselves, if
they wish. If anyone is looking for actual Catholic teaching,
however, look elsewhere, as you'll find virtually none. What
you will find are the correct buzzwords Martin uses to shape
the narrative: unwelcome, scandal, cruel, excluded, lepers,
But haven't Catholic parishes had enough of this twisted landscape
in which truth goes unnoticed, submerged in the dung heap
that results when half-truths and outright lies get piled
upon it? For decades, haven't Catholic parishes been accused
precisely of being "unwelcome" to "gays"
merely by clearly teaching the truth about homosexuality and
by clearly expecting that its parishioners would all be willing
to not identify themselves by their personal crosses, regardless
of what their particular crosses really were? No "gay
sex" community, no "adulterer" community, no
"embezzler" community and so on.
Martin wants to normalize everything
that comes prior to this act of emergence of an "LGBT
person" into any parish he wants to normalize the
condition. He wants to normalize "coming out" as
a public acclamation of the okayness of the condition.
After which Martin then stands ready to accuse parish communities
of being "cruel" unless they offer two holy thumbs-up
signs to the those seeking to have their own acceptance of
"gay" identity, in turn, unquestioningly accepted
by that parish community.
This all-too-brief summation of Martin's oily spiel foisted
upon people of faith gathered in Dublin will never shine full
light on the corruption just under the surface of what seems
at first blush to be sympathetic even "respectful,
compassionate and sensitive." But at least one more example
can suffice to expose the rot at the core of Martin's vacuously
sentimental approach to this issue. Do you know which parish
is Martin's hope-filled beacon of "LGBT welcome"
in this world?
Martin: "My own Jesuit community in New York is next
to a church called St. Paul the Apostle, which has one of
the most active LGBT outreach programs in the world. The ministry
is called Out at St. Paul and sponsors retreats, Bible study
groups, speaking engagements and social events for the parish's
large LGBT community. ... And I just learned that two members
of that group are entering religious orders this year."
If that last sentence spoken by the pied piper of Dublin doesn't
immediately send chills up your spine, it should. If it doesn't,
I highly recommend that you check out something I wrote about
"Out at St. Paul" and its pet project "Owning
Our Faith" back in 2015.
God help us if the best the Church can offer the world regarding
homosexuality and how parishes can be more welcoming to "LGBT
people" at an event meant to encourage and strengthen
families is the worm-tongued eloquence of Fr. James
