Pro-LGBT Jesuit priest Fr. James Martin is claiming his private meeting with Pope Francis in September was “a public sign” of the pontiff’s “support” for his work — which the American Jesuit describes as “ministering with LGBT Catholics” but which critics say is an indefatigable campaign to change Catholic teaching on homosexuality and other deviant sexual behaviors.
Martin tweeted to his 255,800 followers Wednesday:
James Martin, SJ – ✔@JamesMartinSJ – One month ago today, I was invited to meet Pope Francis in the Apostolic Palace, 30 minutes that encouraged me to continue ministering with LGBT Catholics. I hope that this event, a public sign of his support, inspires many others to reach out to that community in our church.
