Caught in the middle of this rift is Martin. His book did not address his own sexuality, but these right-wing sites assign him labels such as “homosexualist.”
“My provincial asked me not to talk about my sexuality, and I’m okay with that,” said Martin, referring to his religious superior in the Jesuit religious order.
The seminary acted independently from the university, which hosted Martin last year.
Martin said this is the second cancellation of a talk due to the attacks. Seminary leaders told him they received a storm of messages and people screaming at receptionists over the phone. Martin is still planning to give an address in Washington at Holy Trinity Church on Sept. 30.
Let the screamfests at Trinity commence.
Catholic University President John Garvey, whose tenure has commissioned the de-Christianizing Catholic University made the following statement:
A statement from Catholic University said the seminary’s disinvitation does not reflect advice from the university’s leadership. “We regret the implication that Catholic University supported yesterday’s decision,” the statement says.
“The campaigns by various groups to paint Fr. Martin’s talk as controversial reflect the same pressure being applied by the left for universities to withdraw speaker invitations,” said John Garvey, president of Catholic University. “Universities and their related entities should be places for the free, civil exchange of ideas. Our culture is increasingly hostile to this idea.
No John, the role of a Catholic University President is not exchanging Church teaching for the ideas of people suffering from diabolical disorientation. We leave that vocation to government-controlled schools. Catholic Schools are training camps for Catholic evangelists. Get out of our schools. You have no business overseeing the mission of a Catholic university.
Zmirak has an outstanding op-ed on the theological poison Fr Martin is imposing in Christendom.
But we are not taking the ax to the root.
The pope hand-picked Fr. Martin to communicate his homosexual monologues, which include homosexual intimacy during the Sacred Liturgy.
So I hope in ten years you will be able to kiss your partner or soon to be your husband. Why not? What’s the terrible thing?
So here we are in this moment in the Church's history. We spent the last 30 years trying to dissuade the people we love from following the advice of an army of gay priests who encouraged them to act on their appetite of lust, fornication, sodomy, contraception, abortion - and the pope is sponsoring their toxic counterfeit, diabolical nonsense.
Frankly, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out which one of them is the bigger jackhole.
