    – Far-left Jesuit Father James Martin is hosting a Vatican Observatory webinar “to celebrate the Great American Eclipse,” a total solar eclipse expected to occur the afternoon of April 8. The webinar will take place at noon.

The document will come from the Dicastery for the Doctrine of the Faith, formerly...

(LifeSiteNews) — Dissident Jesuit priest Father James Martin has claimed Christians “shouldn’t do everything” the Bible “commands” in his new “Outreach Guide to the Bible and Homosexuality.” Martin attempts to show how an explicit defense of homosexual behavior can be reconciled with Christianity in his “guide,” citing biblical scholars who allegedly help interpret Biblical passages on homosexuality.
