POPE FRANCIS & THE JESUIT HISTORY BEHIND LGBT
Chris discusses a new story from the Jesuit’s America Magazine, where the order reveals a recent letter in which Pope Francis “encourages Jesuit Father James Martin in his L.G.B.T. ministry.” In this episode, we discuss the unorthodox views of James Martin, along with the long history of support for the politics of the homosexual movement, that dates back to the 1960’s and 70s. We discuss the Jesuit priest, John McNeill who is often called a “prophet” by the gay community, because of his pioneering work that helped to begin the process of normalizing homosexuality in the churches and American society. While the Vatican is often portrayed as being “old fashioned” in its ideas of morality, is the role of Rome in advancing the breakdown of moral values in the West underestimated?
