In the WSJ on August 31, Cardinal Robert Sarah, prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, described Fr. James Martin as “one of the most outspoken critics of the church’s message with regard to sexuality.” Cardinal Sarah makes the key point that critics say is missing from Martin’s book: that an authentic Catholic outreach to homosexuals is only possible in light of the Church’s moral teaching.
“As a mother, the church seeks to protect her children from the harm of sin, as an expression of her pastoral charity,” the cardinal writes.
