Fr. James Martin, S.J., Promoting Sodomy (Credit: screen shot from joe.ie)

Fr. Martin’s Bridge to Nowhere

. . .“[W]hat the Church holds to be true about human sexuality is not a stumbling block.  It is the only real path to joy and wholeness.  There is no such thing as an ‘LGBTQ Catholic’ or a ‘transgender Catholic’ or a ‘heterosexual Catholic,’ as if our sexual appetites defined who we are; as if these designations described discrete communities of differing but equal integrity within the real ecclesial community, the body of Jesus Christ.  This has never been true in the life of the Church, & is not true now.  It follows that ‘LGBTQ’ & similar language should not be used in Church documents because using it suggests that these are real, autonomous groups, & the Church simply doesn’t categorize people that way”. . .
