Controversial Priest, Fr. James Martin
To Speak at Gala for the
Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre

The Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre, Eastern Lieutenancy of the United States, has announced that the keynote speaker for its Investiture Gala Dinner in New York City on October 21st will be Fr. James Martin, SJ, the highly controversial Vatican advisor who is an outspoken supporter of homosexuality. The event will be preceded by a Mass celebrated by Cardinal Dolan. 

Fr. James Martin is still embroiled in controversy over the contents of his book, Building a Bridge: How the Catholic Church and the LGBT Community Can Enter into a Relationship of Respect, Compassion, and Sensitivity. Fr. Martin has been heavily criticized by many, most prominently Archbishop Chaput of Philadelphia, for taking a too lenient attitude towards LGBTs and not mentioning the objectively disordered nature of their acts and lifestyles. Speaking from a prominent position in the Vatican, Fr. Martin has emerged as a spokesman for a powerful lobby in the Church which evidently seeks to redefine homosexual acts as moral behavior.

The Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre, a military order founded in the 11th century, is headquartered in Rome and its current Cardinal Grand Master is Edwin O’Brien. Michael Voris of Church Militant has previously alleged that Cd. O’Brien is the center of power in a network of homosexual priests and bishops in New York Archdiocese, implicated by the testimony of a gay prostitute and other sources. Given these widely known and potent rumors, the decision to invite someone of Fr. James Martin’s notoriety is unfortunate. It may only add to the appearance of the Church hierarchy officially approving the homosexual lifestyle.

Our sources indicate that local staff of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre may be unaware of this invitation or of its possible significance. To contact the Eastern Lieutenancy of the Equestrian Order, please email: HOLYSEPULCHRENY@ARCHNY.ORG
