HIlarious, a prime example of Eliteism , and Ignornace are living in " Catholic Seminaries " and in turn screwing up potential new priests, and then their is this big oh gee i wonder why there is such a decline in numbers for the priesthood.
Had this been a book on why Trump is evil, or a book promoting peace between Islamic terrorists and the Church, or why speaking in tongues is so much fun, chances are this " catholic seminary " would have thrown this guy a tinker tape parade.
Also notice how a " churchmilitant website " went out of their way to bash this priest. Way to go Church militants. I am sure all the negative critism is really going in the right direction in spreading peace.
and then this quote
“My provincial asked me not to talk about my sexuality, and I’m okay with that,” said Martin, referring to his religious superior in the Jesuit religious order.
Awesome, good for him if he is comfortable being railroaded by his own religious order and being told to keep silent on his sexuality, because more than likely he is homosexual. So exactly how is silencing a priest about his homosexualty helping the homosexual community understand the faith any better. If anything this priest deserves some kind of award for being loyal to a back stabbing religious order. I don’t have a problem with homosexual priests, I do have a problem with homosexual priests not being honest about their sexual orientation or being silenced for it.
An fyi, you dont ask someone to not talk about their sexuality if the person is heterosexual, all this religious order did by silencing this priest is send up a giant flag of being homophobic. An the Church will be more than happy to sweep this under the rug and say ho hum.
