    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...

    Bergoglio's overreach with the tolerance of perverts exposes his hypocrisy. Is James Martin next? There were remarks made yesterday by Jorge Bergoglio, the man thrust upon the Chair of St. Peter by malefactors, on the matter of child abuse. Edward Pentin reported on Twitter that the Vatican media were instructed only to report the "prepared text" on the abuse of minors. The Bergoglian regime has learnt well from Peron on the manipulation of the truth and the control of the message. Too bad it can't hide from Internet reality. After some blowback they relented that the casual remarks would need...

    A passenger aboard a recent Jet2 flight from Spain to England saw something no traveler ever wants to see on a plane: a beer in the cockpit. Steve Lewis, of Northamptonshire, England, says he was “shocked” upon landing at Birmingham airport and seeing a can of Stella Artois sitting between the pilots. “The plane had landed and the seatbelt light came on. I stood up to get my suitcase and as I did the cockpit door opened and I noticed the can,” said Lewis, according to The Metro. “I turned to my partner Steven, who didn’t believe me at first,...

    f you’re looking for a Catholic priest who inspires people - and makes them laugh and think - James Martin, SJ, 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. To say this is unusual is an understatement. Millennials are leaving the church in droves, turned off in part by an institution that has made opposition to same-sex marriage central to Catholic identity in the public square.This generation of Catholics remains inspired by the...

    Washington Post ^ | September 21, 2017 | Fr. James Martin
    Ironically, these groups, like the website Church Militant, which tout their desire for “traditional” Catholic practices consistently set themselves against bishops and religious superiors. Thus, groups that have zero legitimacy in the Church (and which have often been criticized by Church leadership) are setting themselves up against legitimate authorities. Pope Francis himself, for example, is a frequent target. In this way, such supposedly “traditional” Catholic websites are subverting tradition. As a result of their hateful content, they cause confusion, frustration and contempt. Such campaigns can never lead to the kind of results that St. Ignatius calls indicative of the “Good...

    Father James Martin seems to be implying that the Blessed Mother was a lesbian. In a Facebook tirade posted Tuesday, the pro-gay priest urged Catholics to call their local bishops to complain about so-called hate groups like Church Militant in order to silence them, closing his exhortation by referring to the Holy Spirit as "She." "Hope in the Holy Spirit," Martin wrote. "Things can always improve. And the Holy Spirit knows what She's doing." Screen capture of end of Fr.

    An Australian children’s entertainment company fired a young woman for saying on social media “it’s OK to vote ‘no’” in the country’s current referendum on same-sex “marriage.” Capital Kids Parties owner Madlin Sims may have violated discrimination laws in firing an 18-year-old because Sims said her former employee’s view amounted to hate speech, The Guardian reported. The young woman known thus far as Madeline said in various media interviews that she was let go because her Christian view did not allow her to vote yes in Australia’s voluntary postal survey on gay “marriage.” The plebiscite runs from September 12 through...

    Father James Martin is saying that chastity is not required of homosexuals. In a video posted on YouTube on September 20, the Jesuit claims the Church's teaching on chastity is not binding on the consciences of the faithful because it has not been "received" by the people. It's a denial of the infallible teaching authority of the Catholic Church in matters of both faith and morals. He also said in a post on Facebook, "Things can always improve. And the Holy Spirit knows what She's doing" (emphasis added). "For a teaching to be really authoritative," he said, "it is expected...

    NEWCASTLE WEST, Australia, September 19, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — An Australian bishop says he believes there's a valid "common good" argument for the government to legalize same-sex "marriage". As the country votes in a postal survey on the issue, Maitland-Newcastle Catholic Bishop Bill Wright all but suggested Catholics can vote "yes" in a September article for Aurora, the diocesan magazine. "The question about any proposed law is not whether it squares with church teaching or a moral ideal, but whether it is a good practical rule for people living in this society at this time," the bishop argues in his September...

    The withdrawal of Jesuit Father James Martin’s appearance next month at Catholic University of America-affiliated Theological College stirred reaction that continued into Monday and included San Diego Bishop Robert McElroy defending the controversial priest. McElroy was among those who labeled reports and commentary on Father Martin’s LGBT stances as homophobia, censorship, “verbal violence,” and being a “cancer of vilification” in the Church. The bishop said Father Martin’s critics were overemphasizing chastity and they resent Pope Francis’ call for Catholics to move away from judging others. “There has arisen both in Catholic journals and on social media a campaign to vilify...

    Peter Hinze, 57, the socialist mayor of Emmerich, Germany, is about to stage a gay pseudo-marriage with his pal Hubertus Pooth on September 30. The Rheinische Post writes that they will subsequently gather with their guests in the Catholic church in Bislich, where Father Stefan Sühling plans to bless the spectacle. Sühling is a Canon of the Cathedral of Münster diocese. Hinze, a divorced father of a son, is not a faithful Christian but he wants to use the show to send a message "to change the Church".

    Pro-gay Jesuit Fr. Greg Boyle is speaking at a diocesan function for the Diocese of Orange, shepherded by Bp. Kevin Vann. Boyle is a vocal supporter of so-called same-sex marriage as well as women priests. The Diocese's Institute for Pastoral Ministry is hosting a Diocesan Ministries Celebration scheduled for October 14. Church Militant reached out to the Institute for Pastoral Ministry for comment and has received no response. In April, Church Militant published an episode of The Vortex, pointing out Fr. Boyle's record of contradicting the dogmatic teachings of the Church on sexual morality.   Father Boyle said in an interview...
