“If there’s a doubt about homosexuality, it’s better not to have them enter the seminary.”
Can you readers help me out?
I am looking for reportage on the Holy Father’s admonition on the part of the liberal catholic outlets, such as Fishwrap, Commonwelt, Amerika, The Bitter Pill and so forth, and the usual homosexual and homosexualist suspects. You know who they are.
For example, at Jesuit-run Amerika, which harbors Jesuits homosexualist activist James Martin, SJ, I found an article about Italian archbishop’s slobbering preface to the Italian edition of Martin’s ambiguous book. HERE But, I did not find an article about the Pope’s remarks to all the Italian bishops.
I admit that I may have missed it.
I may have missed the report and supportive commentary by Massimo Faggioli, Robert Mickens, Michael Sean Winters, etc.
Aren’t we supposed to hang on every single thing this Holy Father says?
The Tablet (aka The Bitter Pill aka RU-486) seems not to have covered it. Again, I may have missed it. However, there is a story about a dog being a saint.
Fishwrap (aka National Sodomitical Reporter) posted something from Catholic News Service about the audience of the Italian bishops with the Pope, but it omitted the comment about homosexuals. HERE However, I wonder if it was included in the original CNS story HERE. I don’t know because the CNS story is behind a paywall.
CRUX had something about it the Pope meeting with the bishops and about his concerns. HERE However, their piece didn’t cite the Pope speaking about the doubt about a prospective seminarian’s orientation and exclusion from the seminary and it spun ti to stress homosexual acts.
I found a single tweet from homosexualist activist James Martin SJ:
In fact, what the Pope reportedly said was, “If you have even the slightest doubt it’s better not to let them enter.” (That should also go for straight men who present sexual problems.) Remember, when specifically asked about gay priests, he said, publicly, “Who am I to judge?” https://t.co/tHvsGftZo3

First, he turns that on heterosexual men who present “problems”. That is to admit that homosexual orientation is a “problem”. And then he changes the topic. The Pope was talking about seminarians. Martin shifts it to men already ordained and then quotes the Pope’s often misused words, “Who am I to judge?” The Pope was talking about admission of men to seminary, to about men already ordained. The Pope was saying that these men should not be ordained.
Italian born Massimo “Beans” Faggioli was certainly able to read the Italian language account of the Italian Bishops plenary, just the sort of thing to which he would pay massimo attention. But there’s nothing in his tweets on that day or after. He does slobber a bit over Martin’s book, now in Italian.
Look. I’m not saying that the usual suspects have purposely avoided this interesting and newsworthy story. I’m saying that I may have missed what they said.
Hence, I am asking for some of you readers to dig around and help us learn what they thought.
