Jesuit homosexualist activist James Martin said this on CNN:
“[Pope Francis] may have in a sense, as we say in the church, developed his own doctrine. We have to reckon with the fact that the head of the church has now said that he feels that civil unions are ok. And we can’t dismiss that…. Bishops and other people can’t dismiss that as easily as they might want to. This is in a sense… this is a kind of teaching that he is giving us.”
If you watch this dreck (there is a lot that’s bad in it), you will see how he leans in when he stresses “a kind of teaching”.
“A kind of teaching”? It sure is. It’s a bad teaching. And the claim that people “can’t dismiss it that easily” is laughable on the face of it. The Church herself dismisses that bad teaching.
More on that later. Martin said another erroneous thing intend to mislead people into thinking that it must be accepted. You, dear reader, aren’t permitted to dismiss this because Francis is the “head of the Church”.
A Pope is not the “head of the Church”. Christ is the head of the Church (read Col 1:18, Eph 1-22-23, Eph 5:23 with nuptial imagery that does not say, “for the husband is the head of the, you know, the other guy”.
Going on, Martin the homosexualist says, “Francis, as we say in the church, developed his own doctrine.”
“As WE say in the church”?!? Who the hell says that?
The only true, Catholic sense of development of doctrine does not allow contradiction of what has always been taught.
But what Francis proposed, and what Jesuit Martin constantly champions, contradicts the Church’s teachings.
And Martin claims we “can’t dismiss” this just because Francis said it.
We can and MUST dismiss these wicked, misleading claims by Jesuit Martin the homosexualist activist.
We can and MUST dismiss false teaching no matter what the source.
Some might say that Francis was just speaking as a private citizen, not as Pope. So what? Even when St. John Paul and Pope Benedict did that, they didn’t contradict the Church.
Francis contradicted the Church’s teaching, private or official opinion notwithstanding.
Both Francis and Jesuit Martin have an obligation to bring clarity not confusion, to uphold the Church’s doctrines, not undermine them, to strengthen the brethren, not enervate them through ambiguity, ill-sounding and downright scandalous statements about condoning a civil set up, which is a secular mockery of marriage, in which men inseminate each other’s … whatever.
Even the slightest appearance of condoning such a thing must be avoided.
That is why the Church teaches, as it did clearly with the approbation of the Vicar of Christ, St. John Paul II through Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith in 2003 that civil unions between people of the same sex, “obscure certain basic moral values and cause a devaluation of the institution of marriage.”
The CDF taught, with the approbation of St. John Paul – whom Francis thinks should not be Doctor of the Church and whose Magisterium he has been relentlessly undermining since 2013 – that…
To vote in favour of a law so harmful to the common good is gravely immoral.
And yet that is precisely what Francis did. That’s what Jesuit Martin advocates and claims that you must accept.
By the way, that 2003 CDF document, “Considerations regarding proposals to give legal recognition to unions between homosexual persons” was signed on 3 June, the Feast of St. Charles Lwanga and Companions, slaughtered by a homosexual pederast king.
I would also point to a footnote in that document, which says,
“It should not be forgotten that there is always “a danger that legislation which would make homosexuality a basis for entitlements could actually encourage a person with a homosexual orientation to declare his homosexuality or even to seek a partner in order to exploit the provisions of the law”.
Thus, the multiplication of scandal upon scandal, sin upon sin. In this case, sin that “cries to heaven”.
But Jesuit Martin says that we cannot dismiss Francis’ – the head of the Church’s – own developed doctrine. He is committing scandal.
Christ is the head of the Church.
Popes don’t develop doctrine contrary to the Church’s teachings.
The Church’s teachings about homosexual unions STAND FIRM and UNCHANGED.
The public positions of Jesuit homosexualist activist James Martin are a clear and present danger to souls.
He and his superiors will answer to God.
