During the height of the political left’s feigned moral outrage over a decades-old policy of temporarily separating children from their parents crossing the border illegally, a Catholic priest who is not exactly known for his piety had some harsh words for President Donald J. Trump’s adminstration.
“The main thrusts of the Old and New Testaments together on migrants, strangers and refugees is that they should be welcomed,” said Father James Martin, editor-at-large of the Jesuit-run America magazine, in an interview with MSN.
Martin works in the Vatican’s communications office.
He went on to criticize Attorney General Jefferson B. Sessions, who cited a bible verse to back the immigration policy.
“What Attorney General Sessions is doing is called ‘cherry-picking’ or ‘proof-texting,” the priest said. “You take one sentence out of the Gospel without understanding the context. To use Romans 13 to justify tearing kids away from their parents is insane.”
Father Martin had nothing to say about this policy while President Barack H. Obama was doing the same thing for the past eight years. He did, however, have plenty to say on other subjects is completely off the wall and indefensible for a Catholic priest.
Martin is a huge proponent of the gay agenda, and gleefully posted on his Facebook page last year that an LGBT Catholic gathering put on by New Ways Ministry was “another sign of welcome and building bridges.”
When a savvy commenter pointed out that canonized Saints probably would not be impressed by the Catholic Church’s capitulation to the gay agenda, Martin replied by saying that some of the Saints are “probably gay.”
Perhaps. But at least one Saint is on record disagreeing with the heretical priest.
“This vice [of same-sex activity] is the death of bodies, the destruction of souls, pollutes the flesh, extinguishes the light of the intellect, expels the Holy Spirit from the temple of the human heart, introduces the diabolical inciter of lust, throws into confusion, and removes the truth completely from the deceived mind,” wrote doctor of the Church St. Peter Damian in his 11th century Book of Gomorrah. “It prepares snares for the one who walks, and for him who falls into the pit, it obstructs the escape. It opens up hell and closes the door of paradise.”
The Catholic Church’s official position is still that same sex attraction is “intrinsically disordered” and “contrary to natural law.”
Perhaps America should not trust a dissident priest who is a communications official for a globalist Pope, and who openly breaks from the teachings of the Catholic Church when it is convenient for him, as a moral authority on its immigration policy.

Tommy Tuberville Says “We Can’t Worry About China Right Now”
Even though they allowed the disease to spread.
Former football coach and Alabama US Senate candidate Tommy Tuberville said that “we can’t worry about China right now” in a radio appearance with Talk 99.5’s “Matt and Aunie Show on Thursday.
When asked by hosts about the implications of the global coronavirus epidemic on the United States’ relationship with China, Tuberville said, “Well, we can’t worry about China right now. We’ve gotta worry about Alabama and this country.”
Tuberville is currently running to represent Alabama in the United States Senate, although he’s been registered as a Florida voter in the past.
His comments on China policy will leave many Americans concerned with the nation’s role in the coronavirus epidemic unsatisfied. Certainly, containing the epidemic in this country is the priority, but a wide range of conservatives and China hawks have already begun to discuss the need to fundamentally reevaluate the United States’ relationship with China. The damage already inflicted upon American society and the global economy does present a pressing case that such a question is in fact urgent.
Tuberville is running for Senator, not Governor. He could be forgiven if he was running for an office not entrusted with high-level foreign policy responsibilities, but Senators in the coming months and years will be entrusted with developing China policy that recognizes the authoritarian communist nation’s role in allowing and covering up the global coronavirus epidemic.
Contrasting in stark fashion, Tuberville’s opponent for the Republican nomination for US Senate in Alabama, Jeff Sessions, has called for a congressional select committee to investigate China’s role in covering up the dangers posed to the world by the coronavirus, the virus’ origin in Wuhan, and potentially lying about the casualties incurred as a result of the disease in China.
I am calling today for Congress to immediately establish a Select Committee on China to lead the investigation. This Select Committee should be given the authority to wield the full investigative powers, including the power to compel witnesses, of the United States Congress.

If Alabama voters want a Republican Senator who is going to be tough on China, it doesn’t look like Tommy Tuberville is up to task.
