|Fr. James Martin, S.J. and Sr. Jeannine Gramick,|
promoters of the seamless garment of lust.
Let's take a look at a few:
First there's Fr. James Martin, an all-too-typical example of today's Jesuits who are more likely to be defending lust and other capital sins in the name of tolerance, than teaching doctrine. Martin's new book, Building A Bridge: How the Catholic Church and the LGBT Community Can Enter into a Relationship of Respect, Compassion, and Sensitivity, is all about building a bridge to hell.
Martin is well known for his dissent from Catholic truth. He loves the leftwing "nuts (oops, nuns) on the bus" and his new book got a big thumbs up from radical dissenter Sr. Jeannine Gramick who called it a "must-read" that "shows how the Rosary and the rainbow flag can peacefully meet each other." Really? Wonder what the Blessed Mother would say to that one.
Note that in 1999 Gramick was banned by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith from working with homosexuals. She is also a notorious supporter of abortion who asked Obama to expand it worldwide. What a woman of faith, eh? Let's kill more of God's little ones. He must have made them by mistake.
Then there are all the kinder, gentler clerics endorsing the book. Cardinal Joseph Tobin (not to be confused with Bishop Thomas Tobin who calls gay "marriage" a "blatant rejection of God's plan") publicly endorsed the book saying how wrong it is to make gays feel "shamed" as if we shouldn't be ashamed of our sinful lifestyles! He is also one of the high profile critics of the bishops asking for clarification of Amoris Laetitia. Tobin also heads the diocese that threatened to clamp down on Fr. Peter West (formerly of HLI and Priests for Life) because of his outspoken criticism. The diocese has not, to my knowledge, threatened other priests who are radical democrats criticizing Trump, pro-lifers, etc. After all, some priests' views are more equal than others.
Cardinal Kevin Farrell and Bishop Robert McElroy, two more endorsers of Martin's work, both favor giving Communion to adulterers and support the radical interpretation of Amoris Laetitia that essentially destroys the indissolubility of marriage.
Readers should note an important parallel. Those who endorse normalization of same-sex relationships seem to be consistent in normalizing other sexual sins like cohabitation, adultery, contraception, abortion, and the sacrilege of Communion for those in these sinful situations. It's the seamless garment of lust which is being promoted more and more since Francis mounted the papal throne. And rather than those who promote it being corrected, many of them are promoted to important Vatican positions. It is troubling indeed!
