It seems that a Twitter user accused Jesuit homosexualist activist Fr James Martin of writing fake supportive letters to himself. The person who wrote that accusation (who later apologized) used a sardonic generic label “RadTrad Twitter™”: “So, it appears we at RadTrad Twitter™ do owe @JamesMartinSJ an apology.” This is like saying, “we here in SanityLand™ (not a real thing) think you are wrong” rather than “we here at America Magazine (a real thing) are crazy”.
Martin posted a video via Twitter in which he shows some letters people have written to him. He resorts to calling the Twitter user not by his actual Twitter handle, but by a variation of the generic, throw away label, “Rad Trad Catholic Twitter”.
Hey Rad Trad Catholic Twitter. Are you nuts? To answer your latest nutty question: No, I didn’t write myself cards and notes. pic.twitter.com/wdoAxPlfv9

Martin, who isn’t stupid and who knows the difference between the handle of a single user of Twitter who wrote about him and, on the other hand that “RadTrad Twitter™” throw away, made a modification of the throw away as a shaming term.
This is tantamount to: “Anyone Catholic who objects to my homosexualist agenda” is a ‘Rad Trad’!” It’s a subtle form of bullying.
Martin used “Rad Trad Catholic” as a hate-term to smear the huge number of people who object to his homosexualist agenda. In an ironic twist, Martin did what I’m confident he objects to when people use “faggot” for people with same-sex inclinations.
When the Twitter guy used “RadTrad Twitter™” it was a throw away. When Martin used “Rad Trad Catholic”, it was name calling.
But he can do that because he’s “building bridges”.
Martin uses Twitter to push his homosexualist agenda.
I was going to write about the following when it came up, because it dealt with the Diocese of Madison, but I let it pass at the time. Now, however, we should have a look at the way Martin works on Twitter.
Martin used Twitter to wade into something on my home turf and to push his homosexualist agenda.
A Catholic school in Wisconsin has withdrawn a teacher’s employment contract over a Facebook post, doing so even after the teacher deleted the original post and promised to keep her support private going forward.

I am not going to get into the details of the case, but in nutshell, a woman lost her job at a Catholic grade school in the Diocese of Madison for her open, public support of homosexualism on Facebook. She also had a bumper sticker on her car that read, “America needs nasty women”. Not the greatest example for Catholic school children.
Martin jumps in on Twitter. His message is clear, though implicit: Never mind policy and principles, she should keep the job at the Catholic school.
By spotlighting the situation in Madison, homosexualist activist Jesuit Martin engaged in intimidation. Now that Bp. Morlino has passed away, Martin is testing the new guy, Bp. Hying.
In other words, this is internet bullying.
This is what we expect from homosexualist activists, because homosexualism – the need relentlessly to jam it in everywhere – is a totalitarian ideology.
But he does it with a smile, so it’s okay.
Let’s frame what Martin wrote in his tweet another way.
Martin acknowledged that the former employee exposed herself on Facebook and then, later, said she wouldn’t do that again. Hence, she should keep the job.
Let’s say that you are a public “flasher”. You know what a flasher is, right? You live next to a Catholic grade school. You occasionally expose yourself to school children. You also have something awful written on your trench coat. You get caught. After all… it was public. You promise you won’t do it again. “I take it back! I won’t use that coat anymore and I won’t flash here. I don’t renounced my desire to flash, but I’m sorry that I got caught. I’ll make sure I don’t get caught again.” Therefore, you argue, you should continue to live unchallenged next to the Catholic grade school.
Let’s refine this. You don’t live next to the school. You, the flasher, work at the school.
The former-school employee in question exposed her views on Facebook and on her car’s bumper. But hey! Everyone now is supposed to unsee all of that and pretend it doesn’t matter.
That’s what Martin was saying in his Tweet. “Hey! She deleted the post in which she exposed herself! She should keep her job with the children despite your clearly stated policy!”
This is why so many are increasingly irritated with the agenda of homosexualists. They want to jam open homosexualism into every possible venue. They weaponize sentimentality to contravene common sense and they resort to bullying, subtle and not so subtle.
This note came into my email today. It’s from a smart, scholarly, thoughtful guy.
Good afternoon, Father:
Two things come to mind regarding Fr Martin.
First, and speaking from a Charismatic Catholic background, it appears to me, in the strongest way possible, that Fr Martin has an infestation of the ‘spirit of mockery’–that is to say, jeering at piety, not unlike the”professionally religious” visitors to Jerusalem who thought the Apostles were drunk (Acts 2:13; cf Mt 27:42). Someone afflicted with this malice is in need of deliverance/minor exorcism.
Second, let’s assume his project comes to fruition, namely the fullest acceptance of “LGBTQ” in the Church. Then what? I’m seeing exactly nothing about–even within the framework of homosexual liaisons–chastity as gay/lesbian persons, reform of the gay culture in repudiating pornography, sex clubs, kink, and the like. In other words, is the acceptance a one-way street? What does he think Christ is demanding by way of discipleship? Or is the whole Church supposed to look like Most Holy Redeemer Parish in San Francisco or St Ambrose’s Parish in West Hollywood?
I’d be curious to hear your thoughts on this.
I think you may be on to something. Demons can attach to people who are into certain things. And point about “discipleship” is well-taken. I pair this with the sardonic line from Bob Hope quoted in a comment, below.
