PETITION: Urge the Vatican to cancel pro-LGBT talk at event for Catholic families

  • {{ signatures | commify }}

The Vatican, through its Dicastery for Laity, Life and Family, has put pro-homosexual Jesuit Father James Martin on its program to speak at the 2018 World Meeting of Families.

The World Meeting of Families is a massive Vatican-sanctioned Catholic conference scheduled to take place in Dublin in August 2018.

Fr. Martin’s talk is titled “Exploring how Parishes can support those families with members who identify as LGBTI+,” suggesting there are an infinity of genders.

Since speaking to the dissident group New Ways Ministry in 2016 and publishing his controversial book Building a Bridge last year, Fr. Martin has devoted himself to promoting the LGBT cause.

He openly says he wants to change the Catechism of the Catholic Church to take out language about homosexual activity being “disordered.” He supports gay men kissing each other during the sign of peace at Mass, says that a Catholic attending a same-sex “wedding” is like attending a Jewish wedding, and suggests that his critics are secretly gay themselves.

He supports transgender bathrooms and regularly accuses faithful Catholics of “homophobia” for believing what the Church has always taught.

Father Martin says homosexual priests should “come out” about their sexual proclivities, but has publicly declined to say whether he himself is gay.
