An American Jesuit Catholic Priest who is popular with Francis the Talking Pope and the nun I dated once is apparently not very popular with some others within the Holy Roman Cash Corporation. Rev. James Martin has proposed a bridge between HRCC and LGBTQ folks, I suppose as part and parcel of his notion one night expect a break in the constant demonization of teh gay, and of course nothing scares a conservative more than a suggestion that the level of Holy Bigotry should be reduced. Without an underclass like fags whom would they be holier than?
I often see the nun I dated once in high school liking Rev. Martin's posts on Facebook, and I actually have commented on something he said that seemed quite reasonable.
Rev. Martin was scheduled to appear as a speaker at the Theological College of Catholic University. Word got out to right wing uber-Catholics, they started a holy hate campaign and voila, invitation rescinded. We can't have differences of opinion where petulant genocidal sky monsters are concerned, can we? I'm thinking the right wing Catholics were afraid the God of Love would rain down fire and brimstone if they let up on the Holy Homophobia.
the Rev. Gerald McBrearity, made the decision to rescind Martin’s invitation to speak in October. “In no way does this decision signal approval or agreement with the comments or accusations that the various social media sites have made over the recent weeks,” the statement said.
