“Pro-LGBT Jesuit priest James Martin, along with a rabbi and an imam, is slated to deliver an invocation on the final night of the Democratic National Convention when pro-abortion candidate Joe Biden will accept his party’s nomination for President of the United States.
‘I was honored to accept the invitation to pray at the Democratic convention,’ Martin announced to his Twitter followers.
‘I will be praying for a respect for the sanctity of all human life and for a nation in which all are welcome,’ he added. ‘(And if the Republicans invite me, I’ll pray the same prayer).’
Martin then linked to a New York Times article that mentioned his pick…
A number of online commentators expressed dismay that a Catholic priest would lend credibility to the Democratic party — which proudly includes the ‘right’ to abortion in its official 2020 platform and whose candidates for the presidency and vice presidency have repeatedly made clear their personal dedication to abortion – by agreeing to speak at the party’s important event. More than that, some are horrified that a priest would deign to participate in the event because so many of the planks in the party’s platform are antithetical to Catholicism, including its extreme pro-LGBTQ+ stances and associated continued promised assaults on religious liberty.
Martin has been the greatest force for the normalization of homosexuality and transgenderism in the Catholic Church today, and he continues mostly unchecked. In 2017, he published a book titled ‘Building a Bridge: How the Catholic Church and the LGBT Community Can Enter Into a Relationship of Respect, Compassion and Sensitivity.’
The Jesuit frequently delivers speeches around the country and the world promoting his pro-LGBT message, including at the 2018 World Meeting of Families in Ireland, where he suggested that active homosexuals ‘should be invited into parish ministries,’ specifically mentioning them becoming ‘eucharistic ministers,’ in order to make them welcomed and accepted in the Catholic Church.
‘Fr. James Martin and Sr. Simone Campbell, who lobbied on behalf of Obamacare and its requisite contraceptive mandate, will speak at the Democratic Convention this week,’ noted Raymond Arroyo, host of EWTN’s The World Over, reminding his followers that some of the Catholics who are given high profile, public roles at the convention may have something to do with their dedication to anti-Catholic political causes.”
