Jim vs. Jim

James J. Martin, S.J. is a Jesuit priest, a writer, and editor-at-large of the Jesuit magazine America. He grew up in Plymouth Meeting, Pennsylvania, and now lives in the America House Jesuit Community in midtown Manhattan. On April 12, 2017, Pope Francis appointed Martin and EWTN leader Michael Warsaw as consultants to the Vatican's Secretariat for Communications. He has recently published a suspect book, Building a Bridge: How the Catholic Church and the LGBT Community Can Enter into a Relationship of Respect, Compassion, and Sensitivity. Fr. is very popular with Catholics who are ignorant of the fundamentals of the Catholic faith. Here are some comments on Building a Bridge;

He's so full of crap. There's always been a place for LGBT in the Church and the Catholic Church has NEVER been the enemy of the LGBT people and he knows it. Mr. Martin (I refuse to call him "Father" because he has failed miserably as a shepherd and a priest) wants the CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH to change and embrace SODOMY. He will answer to God for misleading many. What he should be teaching is the incredible joy one can experience in living a chaste life, but NO, he wants the Church to put it's rubber stamp on SODOMY. This man is a HERETIC of the worst sort. Our Lady of Fatima said that more people go to HELL because of sins of the flesh more than any other reason. I'll bet money that Martin doesn't even believe in Hell. He has NEVER mentioned it although Christ spoke more about Hell than he did of Heaven.

SO-what are we to make of Fr.'s new book? Deacon Jim Russell offers a fine, orthodox view of Building a Bridge, a must read for inquiring Catholic minds! Read more.
