Leave it to the Jesuits! Another Slap in the Face of Catholicism
What Does Catholicism Really Teach?

In the hyper-liberal Jesuit magazine America, Presider James Martin asks the musical question;
"I wonder how many Catholics will be celebrating President Obama’s signing of the repeal of the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" law?"Martin fails to mention that the repeal not only gives legitimacy to what is theologically illegitimate (and flies in the face of the basic mechanics of the human body), but also ignores that in 1999, Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, declared that the homosexual act is an "intrinsic evil".

The theologically questionable Martin was possibly at his Pollyanna best when he was quoted as saying;
"...gays and lesbians who live chastely can lead holy lives, and even strive to become saints. After all, that’s what approaching 'Christian perfection' means: sanctity."Read more...

Anytime Fr. Martin opens his mouth I expect to be annoyed and always am. The Jesuits are a such a mess.

What is questionable about that last quote? The church believes exactly that. If you disagree with the Church, fine, but it is not theologically questionable. You can ask Pope John Paul II. Those people who suffer from a homosexual attraction should live chaste lives and try to grow closer to the Lord. We all have a cross to carry. It is a shame that theirs is one we feel we can judge. Chastity is a virtue, whether one is homosexual or heterosexual.

If I might say in all Christian charity, it seems that your cross is false self-righteousness. I will pray that you may open your heart to God's compassionate love, not only His justice as you see it.

God love your zeal and spirit!
