May 10, 2018

Pro-LGBT priest Fr. James Martin, S.J. is set to give the commencement speech for Loyola University at the Superdome in New Orleans on May 12th. Join faithful Catholics in a Rosary of Reparation.
Rev. James Martin, S.J. should NOT be addressing students because he:
  1. Said Catholics should “reverence” homosexual “marriage”
  2. Supports transgenderism for children
  3. Favors homosexual kissing during Mass
  4. Called dissident, pro-homosexual nun a “saint”
  5. Welcomed award from group condemned by the USCCB

For these reasons, I urge you to join a Rosary of Reparation:

When: Saturday, May 12th at 8 AM

Where: Downtown New Orleans Poydras St. and Lasalle St.
(Metered parking is available on Poydras St. and side streets)

Why: Because, as a Catholic priest, Fr. Martin promotes unnatural vice within the Church. He also favors transgenderism for children and undermines the sacred institution of marriage.

To learn more about the “Rainbow Jesuit’s” anti-Catholic statements, please read on…1. Fr. Martin said Catholics should “reverence” homosexual unions

On September 5, 2017, at Fordham University, Fr. Martin contradicted Church teaching, saying: “I have a hard time imagining how even the most traditionalist, homophobic, closed-minded Catholic cannot look at my friend [in a same-sex “marriage”] and say, ‘That is a loving act, and that is a form of love that I don’t understand but I have to reverence.'”

2. Fr. Martin supports transgenderism for children

On October 2, 2017, Fr. Martin posted comments supporting a young boy who presented himself as a girl to receive religious education at a Catholic parish. When the parish offered to teach the boy as long as he presented himself according to his biological sex, registered on his baptismal certificate, Fr. Martin objected, calling the Church’s decision “a scandal.” In this case, Fr. Martin supported transgender confusion, which, according to the American College of Pediatricians, is a form of child abuse.

3. Fr. Martin favors homosexual kissing during Mass

During a presentation at Villanova University on August 29, 2017, Fr. Martin told a practicing homosexual who attends Mass, “I hope in 10 years you will be able to kiss your partner [in church] or, you know, soon to be your husband.” How can a Catholic priest promote the public display of sacrilegious and sinful behavior during the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass? How can he favor homosexual “marriage”?

4. Fr. Martin called dissident, pro-homosexual nun a “saint”

During a podcast on June 16, 2017, Fr. Martin said that Sr. Jeannine Gramick, a nun censured by the Vatican for her pro-homosexual activism with New Ways Ministry, should be declared a “saint.” Catholics should know that Sister Gramick has a record of defiant disobedience. In 1999, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, under then-Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, permanently prohibited her “from any pastoral work involving homosexual persons.”

“By suggesting Sr. Gramick is worthy of sainthood,” Church Militant observes, “Fr. Martin ‘blesses’ her revolt against Church teaching, while propagating her heresy.”

5. Fr. Martin welcomed award from group condemned by the USCCB

On October 30, 2016, Fr. Martin accepted the “Bridge Building Award” from the pro-homosexual group New Ways Ministry. However, as president of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, Cardinal Francis George, condemned the group, stating: “Their claim to be Catholic only confuses the faithful regarding the authentic teaching and ministry of the Church with respect to persons with a homosexual inclination. Accordingly, I wish to make it clear that, like other groups that claim to be Catholic but deny central aspects of Church teaching, New Ways Ministry has no approval or recognition from the Catholic Church and that they cannot speak on behalf of the Catholic faithful in the United States.”

Given the confusion and ambiguity promoted by wolves in sheep’s clothing, let us reiterate what the Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches regarding homosexuality.

Basing itself on Sacred Scripture, which presents homosexual acts as acts of grave depravity, tradition has always declared that “homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered.” They are contrary to the natural law. They close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity. Under no circumstances can they be approved. (2357)

And here is an excerpt from the writings of a different type of Jesuit, Father John A. Hardon’s Catholic Catechism on Homosexuality:

46. What is the Church’s basic teaching on homosexuality?
The Church distinguishes between the homosexual condition or tendency and homosexual actions. Homosexual actions lack the essential and indispensable purpose. They are therefore intrinsically disordered. Consequently homosexual actions can never be approved (HP3).

47. Are homosexual actions morally evil by their very nature?
Yes, they are gravely sinful no matter how strong a person’s homosexual tendency may be (HP3).

We live in a time when Church teaching is under attack from all sides on the very controversial issue of homosexual sin.On Judgment Day, we don’t want to have to answer to God for staying silent while young Catholics were subjected to an address by a priest who contradicts Church teaching on the crucial issue of homosexual sin.

That is why I urge you to please join concerned Catholics in a crucial and historic Rosary Reparation on:

Saturday, May 12th at 8 AM

Downtown New Orleans at Poydras St. and Lasalle St.
(Metered parking is available on Poydras St. and side streets)

Bring your rosary. Invite your friends. Stand up for the perennial teachings of the Holy Catholic Church.
