What a weekend on social media!
Fr. James Martin just can't stop playing the victim...he loves the attention it gets him.
I wrote about this Saturday in my posts: Church Militant is so mean! and Fr. James Martin on men kissing men at Mass.
The snowball continued gaining speed on social media as the battled heated up between Church Militant and Fr. James Martin and his groupies.
For the quick lowdown, check out Michael Voris from Church Militant on his Vortex episode today ...
Voris: "Holy Cow did social media ever blow up this weekend, involving the heresy-preaching, pro-sodomy priest Fr. James Martin and Church Militant. Late Friday, Church Militant broke the story that the seminary at Catholic University of America had canceled Martin's speaking event at an upcoming event the first weekend of October. That started it. The priest blamed Church Militant, in part, for the cancellation and started whining about it on Twitter. His allies in the Associated Press and other secular media came screaming to his defense. Church Establishment types — like Fox News consultant and Cdl. (Timothy) Dolan mouthpiece Fr. Jonathan Morris — came out of the woodwork, accusing Church Militant of being "demonic," and the rest is history. And all of this since just Friday night. Clearly, Church Militant has kicked the hornet's nest of homosexuality in the clergy." [clipped for length]Voris continues by throwing down a challenge to Fr. James Martin and Fr. Jonathan Morris and even Cardinal Dolan!
Voris: "So, since Fr. Martin and his followers think Church Militant is evil and rotten and mean and judgmental, we'd like to extend an official invitation to Fr. Martin to publicly debate his position about homosexuality any time, any place. Surely with the backing of such prominent homosexualist princes of the Church, as well as celebrity priests in love with themselves, judging from their rather unpriestly photos on their Facebook page, the pro-sodomy priest should relish the opportunity to slam Church Militant in person and before a packed house with cameras rolling.
How about it Father? You talk a good game. Let's talk it out in front of God and everyone. You think the Church is wrong like so many other clergy, and we think it's right. A little throwdown should settle this once and for all, right? And for all those deluded followers of his, you should be encouraging your pro-gay hero to take up the challenge."
"Perhaps Cdl. Dolan could even sponsor the debate, and it's perfectly acceptable to us if His Eminence wants to sit in the pro-gay corner. We'd expect nothing less. So, let's have a great big dose of that transparency that so many leaders in the Church never stop rambling on about. Let's dialogue. Stop all the name calling, right? Let's get down to it.
And we are as serious as a heart attack about this because the out front challenge to this homo-heresy has to be done. So come on Father. You know you're dying to. Come on."

The snowball shows zero signs of slowing down. Fr. Martin has called in the troops to once more target Church Militant as "cyber bullies" because they uphold Catholic teaching and call out Catholic clergy who reject Catholic teaching. Go figure!
LaCroix International: The Worlds Premiere Independent Catholic Daily has come charging into the fray to defend the heretical teachings Fr. Martin promotes and blame "cyber militants" and get this...Pope Saint John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI! 😄
Quote: These cyber militants are not alone. Rather, they are part of the “age of anger” from which the Catholic Church is not immune. These groups and individuals are particularly active and influential in the Catholic Church in the United States. Much of this is the result of more than thirty years of episcopal appointments under John Paul II and Benedict XVI, which recast the US episcopate in the image of the “cultural warrior”.The bleeding hearts club continues with "the saga" of poor little LBGTQXYZ sodomy promoting priest Fr. Martin plight against these horrible mean cyber "neo-Nazi" 😏bullies...
Quote: "The saga of Fr Martin indicates several important things. First, it shows that these fringe groups are small but not that marginal or unrepresentative of a particular kind of American Catholicism. Just two months ago, critics of the now well-known article by Antonio Spadaro SJ and Marcelo Figueroa in the Vatican-vetted Jesuit-run journal La Civiltà Cattolica said the authors had exaggerated the importance of groups like Church Militant. But the cancellation of Fr Martin’s talks confirms that these groups have power in the Church and can influence important institutional decisions.It is interesting to read the La Civiltà Cattolica article synoptically with its criticisms two months after its publication – that is, after the neo-Nazi and white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia and this latest campaign against Fr James Martin."
HAHAHAHAHA! 😁 Who in their right minds can take these people seriously? These mental midgets are a sandwich short of a picnic!
The Catholic Church says homosexual relationships can NEVER be supported, yet Fr. James Martin publicly supports them! By his own words he opposes Christ's Holy Catholic Church.
Who in the Church is calling out these errors? Cardinal Dolan? Nope.
Pope Francis? Nope. Heck, he promoted him!
So that it's left to good, decent Catholic people like the folks at Church Militant to point out the obvious. And for that, they are called "cyber bullies" and "fringe" group!
There are better names for Catholics like this in our Church's history who stood up against heresy and wayward clergy.
Martyrs and Saints.
These are the types of people Our Lord will say "Well done, good and faithful servant" to upon their Judgement.
Those of Fr. James Martin and ilk will be getting a refresher course from the Gospel of Matthew.
Matthew 7:21-23Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition (DRA)
21 Not every one that saith to me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven: but he that doth the will of my Father who is in heaven, he shall enter into the kingdom of heaven.22 Many will say to me in that day: Lord, Lord, have not we prophesied in thy name, and cast out devils in thy name, and done many miracles in thy name?23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, you that work iniquity.
