For the love of all that's holy, we must be saved from men like this entering the seminaries.
Jay is a Fr. James Martin wannabe. He even retweets and quotes Fr. Martin frequently on social media. Two peas on pod.
Some facts about Jay. Jay has a "gay" teddy bear named "Barnsie" who he likes to keep in the back seat of his car "cause he likes it there". Jay likes to wear pink cause...of course, he's gay but he doesn't call pink 'pink', nope. Jay says gay Catholics call pink "purple" cause...I don't even remember at this point its all so insanely convoluted. I think he is trying (and failing) to be funny - of course considering all the other things Jay says and does he might be perfectly serious. Judge for yourselves.
Jay the Jesuit wannabe actually records himself on the toilet (more on that later), pants around his ankles and all. I am stumbling for words to write this am so baffled and appalled by this guy.
Let me start at the beginning with Jay's first video.
Here in his breakout Youtube video he opines that people are wrongly blaming homosexual clergy for abuse in the Church and that there is nothing wrong with being gay (doesn't acknowledge Church teaching that homosexuality is disordered).
He also states he must not be in the closet about his own sexuality because to not talk about being gay somehow takes away his freedom and would make him a terrible priest. He's really obsessed with being free.
Jay says he "can't be true to the Gospel" as a gay man if he's in the closet.
Seriously, he says that.
He continues on saying he can't even "serve the Church" if he's not "one hundred percent free" - which again for Jay means telling the world about his sexual preferences for males. Jay has wrapped his freedom up in his homosexuality. All of this is completely nuts!
He's a confused, mentally warped mess and I am sure the Jesuits will adore him.
Looking at the comments so far on his Youtube channel I'd say he's not getting the responses he might have hoped for.
I left a few comments of my own on his Youtube channel including several quotes on homosexuality. Like the catechism stating the homosexuality is a disorder.
2358 The number of men and women who have deep-seated homosexual tendencies is not negligible. This inclination, which is objectively disordered, constitutes for most of them a trial. They must be accepted with respect, compassion, and sensitivity. Every sign of unjust discrimination in their regard should be avoided. These persons are called to fulfill God's will in their lives and, if they are Christians, to unite to the sacrifice of the Lord's Cross the difficulties they may encounter from their condition.
At the end of the video Jay proceeds to tell viewers we are not allowed to judge him... apparently he either doesn't know what Scripture says on the matter or perhaps its merely something else he rejects.
Sexual Immorality Must Be Judged9 I wrote to you in my letter not to associate with sexually immoral persons— 10 not at all meaning the immoral of this world, or the greedy and robbers, or idolaters, since you would then need to go out of the world. 11 But now I am writing to you not to associate with anyone who bears the name of brother or sister[c] who is sexually immoral or greedy, or is an idolater, reviler, drunkard, or robber. Do not even eat with such a one. 12 For what have I to do with judging those outside? Is it not those who are inside that you are to judge? 13 God will judge those outside. “Drive out the wicked person from among you.” [1 Corinthians 5 New Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition]
I am interested to see if he will address any of the comments left.
Jay has other videos including a video called "A Day in My Big Gay Catholic Life part 1" that is just weird, absurd and appalling.
The first half of the video Jay records himself waking up, going into the bathroom (flushing toilet sounds) and then he attempts to say the "Our Father" but can't remember it because he hasn't had his coffee yet. He apologizes to Jesus, ditches his prayers and makes his way to the kitchen for his breakfast- which he records making and eating.
During Jay's breakfast with coffee he asks and answers riveting questions like
"Gay Lifestyle Question #1: How important is coffee to you? Is it a 'gay lifestyle' thing? It is a Catholic?"
His response is repulsive and bizarre... "coffee is the 8th sacrament" blah, blah, blah. He's trying to be funny, but he's just a sad joke.
Then he records himself sitting on the toilet and reading "The Jesuit Guide to Almost Everything" by Father James Martin.
One comment under this vulgar video...

The clip at 10.33 really just about sums you up. Vulgar and gauche. Do you really think an aspiring clergyman would be comfortable showing his bare thighs sat on the toilet, literally defecating? Mind you, you clearly don't do irony as the book you're reading is by Father Liberace no less, so toilet paper is indeed about all it's worth.
After the toilet scene Jay goes for a run them comes home and shows himself tossing his clothes on the floor as he gets naked and then showers - thankfully he doesn't record his shower-but does record drying off his lower torso.
I said it before and I have to say it again...its bizarre and appalling- and I am sure the Jesuits will love him.
God save His Church and us all from men like Jay.
