From the LA Times:
Father John Zuhlsdorf, who runs a blog called Father Z, repeatedly labeled Martin a “homosexualist activist” and called for Catholic institutions not to host him.
Look, I may getting older and I have monsignor moments, but I don’t remember ever doing that. Let me clarify.
First, the LATimes did not contact me and, if they did, I am unaware.
I have attached the “label” to Martin, sure.
Have I, repeatedly or otherwise, “called for Catholic institutions not to host” Fr. Martin?
In my most recent post, all I did was ask questions. HERE Here’s what I wrote.
REMEMBER: I was concerned about a speaker at a seminary. Yes, this is also at Catholic University, but I don’t care as much about the university. The major seminary was my concern. I wrote:
I’ll grant you that a speaker might be capable of addressing more issues than just his primary focus. But there is no way around the fact that, right now at least, when Fr. Martin’s name comes up, the first thing you think is activist for a homosexualist agenda.
I don’t get it.
If I were a bishop or an alumnus of Theological College, I’d have some questions.
What message are they trying to send?
What are they promoting by this move?
What are they teaching those seminarians?
I don’t think there’s anything wrong with those questions.
I asked them then. I’d ask them again.
