Birds of a feather…
Francis appoints notorious Jesuit James Martin as Consultant for Vatican Secretariat for Communications
Anyone who was still under the impression that “Pope” Francis was a tough opponent of the homosexualist agenda, will definitively be disabused of this illusion now: On April 12, 2017, the Vatican announced that “Pope” Francis had appointed the notorious Jesuit LGBT-sensitive “Fr.” James Martin a consultant for the Vatican Secretariat for Communications, along with 12 other people. The secretariat was created by the “Pope” in 2015 and includes the Holy See Press Office, Vatican Radio, the Vatican Television Center, the Vatican Publishing House, and the Vatican Internet Service, among others.

Who is James Martin?
“Fr.” James Martin (b. 1960) entered the Jesuit order in 1988 and has been a Novus Ordo presbyter since 1999. He is currently the editor-at-large of the apostate Jesuit review America. Over the years Martin has made a name for himself as a cheerleader for typical leftist causes, such as standing up for illegal immigration and furthering social acceptance of various forms of sexual perversion. His Facebook page has over half a million followers, and roughly 120,000 people follow him on the micro-blogging platform Twitter.
He is the author of numerous books, and his latest is entitled, Building A Bridge: How the Catholic Church and the LGBT Community Can Enter into a Relationship of Respect, Compassion, and Sensitivity. This right there tells you all you need to know. The book has already, of course, received the endorsement of Vatican “Cardinal” Kevin Farrell, Francis’ new frontman for family and life issues.
On Oct. 30, 2016, Martin received the Bridge Building Award of the perversion-promoting New Ways Ministry, an organization so at odds with Catholicism that it has been condemned even by the Novus Ordo Sect. Martin, of course, happily accepted the award — his acceptance speech can be watched here (written version available here).
Martin has been very active on the popular micro-blogging platform Twitter. As this article shows, Martin has tweeted how “moving” he found the story of two elderly “Catholic” lesbians who were “forced” to pretend being sisters so that society wouldn’t reject them for their sexual perversion; he has also blasphemously claimed that our Blessed Lord Jesus Christ was “challenged” by the Canaanite woman (see Mt 15:21-28), on account of which He “change[d] his mind, learning from a wise woman”. It is not known whether Martin has imitated his boss yet by declaring that Christ made Himself Satan, but one can clearly see a kindred spirit between the two Jesuits — and it’s not the Holy Spirit.
But this is not all. Martin is also fearless in standing up for the sexually-confused: In February of this year, he sent out tweets advocating for the “rights” of so-called “transsexuals” or “transgenders” (basically, cross-dressers or worse) to enter any bathroom they choose, on account of their “dignity as human beings” (reportedly, the tweets have since been removed):
Ah yes, the secular notion of “human rights”. It has always been a philosophically-bankrupt free-for-all, and this has never been more apparent than today, where anyone can demand anything simply by appealing to their “dignity” (precisely what this dignity is derived from or grounded in, however, is always left unsaid): Whether it be a “right” to practice in public any religion of one’s choosing, a “right” to blaspheme, a “right” to abortion, a “right” to sin against the Sixth or Ninth Commandments, or now, with Sensitive Jimmy’s support, a man’s “right” to enter a woman’s bathroom and a woman’s “right” to enter a men’s room, anyone can claim it now, because… dignity!
In other words, unless you agree that a 45-year-old male should be allowed to pee next to your 5-year-old daughter, you are denying people a basic right! As though it were too much to expect of a man that he do his business in the men‘s room! Somehow this has worked perfectly fine since time immemorial, long before any James Martins ever came around. But requiring such a modicum of decency is now condemned by this Jesuit as an unacceptable affront to human dignity!
With this kind of theology, you can expect that Novus Ordo confessions will soon get even more colorful: “Bless me, Father, for I have sinned: I offended my neighbor’s dignity by interfering with a man’s attempt to enter a women’s bathroom, once. Then I sinned three times against ecumenism by trying to convert a Lutheran, and my air conditioning unit at home is set to 68 ºF.”
One would hate to imagine what sort of “penance” a James Martin would impose. Helping out at the next Gay Pride Parade? Unscrewing some light bulbs for a while? Leading a petition drive for LGBT rights? Contributing to someone’s sex-change surgery fundraiser?
Sounds like we just found a topic for another Vatican synod.
Francis and Transgenderism
So, why would “Pope” Francis appoint someone like James Martin as a consultant to the Vatican Communications Office? Quite simply, because Martin is a man after Bergoglio’s own heart.
Yes, it is true that every so often, Francis likes to talk tough against so-called “transgenderism”, lamenting its spread and once even calling it “demonic”. But, as we all know, actions speak louder than words.
On Jan. 24, 2015, Francis received at the Vatican a Spanish woman (Neria Lejárraga) who had undergone genital mutilation and other surgical aberrations in order to make herself look like a man (she now calls herself “Diego”). This meeting took place at the express invitation of the “Pope”, after Lejárraga had written to him to complain about how horribly she had been treated by her Novus Ordo pastor in Spain. So Francis invited her and her (likewise female) “fiancée” to a private audience, at which time he confirmed the sexually-confused woman in her delusion of being a man: “God loves all his children, however they are; you are a son [!] of God, who accepts you exactly as you are. Of course you are a son [!] of the Church!” (source). A photograph of the encounter can be found here, and of course Neria has since published a book about her struggle and her meeting with the “Pope”, which she talks about in this video.
When he was “Cardinal” Bergoglio in Buenos Aires, Francis permitted a homo-perverted couple who had purchased two children, to have them baptized in the Basilica of the Most Holy Sacrament. One of the two sodomites is another one of those artificially sex-changed “women”, and the pictures of the scandalous event speak volumes:
So, the next time you hear Francis lamenting or denouncing transgendernism, remember that it’s just words, words he happily contradicts with his actions. He may call it “integration” after “case-by-case discernment”; but regardless of what label he uses, it is still a de facto acceptance of an unacceptable evil, an evil entirely incompatible with human dignity.
One of the big buzzwords these days is “accompany.” But the mission of the Church, given to her by Christ (see Mt 28:19-20), is to convert sinners from their sinful ways, not to accompany them on the way to hell.
On Nov. 1, 1900, Pope Leo XIII protested: “The world has heard enough of the so-called ‘rights of man.’ Let it hear something of the rights of God” (Encyclical Tametsi, n. 13).
There’s an idea for the Vatican II Sect, one it definitely hasn’t tried before.
How about it, James Martin?
