    [Catholic Caucus] Pope meets with Jesuit targeted by right for gay outreach Pope Francis met privately Monday with an American Jesuit who has been attacked by conservative U.S. Catholics for reaching out to gays, the latest evidence of Francis' willingness to shrug off right-wing criticism for the sake of his pastoral priorities. The Vatican listed the audience with the Rev. James Martin among the pope's daily activities, in a sign that Francis wanted it publicized. Since only some of Francis' private meetings are announced, the implicit message was a public vote of confidence in Martin's ministry.

    [Catholic Caucus] Dueling Clerics Philly archbishop goes back and forth with Fr. James Martin PHILADELPHIA (ChurchMilitant.com) - In a response to homosexualist Jesuit Fr. James Martin, the archbishop of Philadelphia says so-called LGBT Catholics are responsible for listening and obeying Church teaching. On Sept. 19, Abp. Charles Chaput replied to follow-up comments made by Fr. James Martin in the archdiocese's newspaper, where Martin claimed the immorality of "same-sex relations and same-sex marriage ... is [often] the only thing the only thing that they hear from their church." Chaput answers:  But it is clearly not true that the "only thing" Catholics with same-sex attraction hear from...

James Martin, S.J. has become a tired meme.   His art of gaslighting Catholics into accepting homosexuality and transgenderism while simultaneously protesting his devotion to Church teaching is well known.   His cringe-worthy social media postings of 1970s-tier photos of the life of Christ mixed with comments about how Catholics in the Western world are obligated to accepted tens of millions of military-age men from the Global South into...

    We Need Discalced Jesuits One of the treasures of the Catholic Church is its religious orders, with their various rules and charisms directed toward addressing particular needs in the Church at the time of their founding. Human nature being what it is, though, a common phenomenon is that over time, orders fall into laxity and lose the original vigor of their founders. It has been a blessing for the Church that when orders grow tepid in their founding mission, reform movements rise up that seek to restore the zeal and vibrancy of their origins. Such was the case, for example,...

    The daily media smearing of Donald Trump and his followers is one thing, but the readiness not just of the media but of self-righteous types from all walks of life to demonize a bunch of Kentucky high-school kids on the basis of a couple of news reports was truly breathtaking. Presumably everyone knows the story by now. Last Friday, after attending the March for Life in Washington, D.C., several boys from Covington Catholic High School in Park Hills, Kentucky, were waiting outside the Lincoln Memorial for their bus home when something happened. The early reports accused the boys, some of...

    Sirius XM radio host David Webb, who happens to be black, had an awkward moment on his show this week when a CNN analyst began lecturing him on his alleged “white privilege.” [snip] “David, by virtue of being a white male you have white privilege,” the guest replied. “Areva, I hate to break it to you, but you should’ve been better prepped. I’m black,” the Fox News contributor deadpanned. “You went immediately with an assumption. You’re talking to a black man who started out in rock radio in Boston, who crossed the paths into hip-hop rebuilding one of the greatest...

    Catholic LGBT Ministry Canonizes Serial Pederast NEW YORK (ChurchMilitant.com) - A so-called Catholic LGBT ministry is heralding the canonization of a notorious pederast, the late Harvey Milk.

He questioned whether his brother bishops believed this “doctrine of the Church or not,” and if they did, why some of them have allowed certain clergy to speak in their dioceses with a pro-homosexual message.  “Brothers, I think part of the fraternal correction, or the fraternal support, we offer each other is to say, 'Can that be presented in...

    Red Demidouble WHILE THE CONCOURSE OF PILGRIMS to the sepulchre of the Bishop of Tours induced his third successor Perpetuus to raise over his precious remains the basilicas, in which so many prodigies were to be wrought all through the middle ages, Rome herself was dedicating to St. Martin one of her noblest churches, uniting with him as joint titular her own illustrious Pontiff and Confessor Sylvester. Adorned with this twofold glory, St. Martin-on-the-hill worthily inaugurated in the eternal City the cultus of Confessors side by side with that of the Martyrs. But another honor awaited the venerable sanctuary....

    A high-ranking Facebook executive was allegedly forced to resign after refusing to back down on his support for Donald Trump - it has been revealed.

According to correspondence revealed by the Wall Street Journal, the revelation about his donation sparked a furore which saw him fired six months later. Facebook higher-ups including founder Mark Zuckerberg himself were said to have attempted to pressgang Luckey into publicly supporting...

Till then Church law forbidding such funerals, a law that dates back many centuries, remains in effect, and its apparent gross violation last week by clergy of the Archdiocese of Boston, who (seemingly with approval from the chancery), granted notorious mob murderer James “Whitey” Bulger a Catholic funeral Mass, hardly justifies granting Church funerals to...
