Catholic Priest Who Bashed Trump on Immigration Once Said Some Saints Were ‘Probably Gay’

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.

Have Chinese Interests Infiltrated Facebook?

Published

Although globalization has some benefits, such as a greater basket of goods and services that citizens can enjoy along with the exchange of ideas, it does come with some bad effects. Namely, the importation of bad ideas such as the social credit system and potential subversive agents from peer competitors.

This case is most notable with regards to the U.S.’s relationship with China.  Sohrab Ahmari of the New York Post wrote an article titledMeet your (Chinese) Facebook censors” highlighting how Facebook has slowly but surely imported China’s social credit model.  According to an exchange between Ahmari and a former Facebook insider, there are apparently at least half a dozen “Chinese nationals who are working on censorship”.

The Facebook source told Ahmari “So at some point, they [Facebook bosses] thought, ‘Hey, we’re going to get them H-1B visas so they can do this work.’ ”

The insider disclosed an internal directory of the team that handles the bulk of this work. Ahmari gave a brief overview of what this censorship team does:

It’s called Hate-Speech Engineering (George Orwell, call your office), and most of its members are based at Facebook’s offices in Seattle. Many have Ph.D.s, and their work is extremely complex, involving machine learning — teaching “computers how to learn and act without being explicitly programmed,” as the techy website DeepAI.org puts it.

The “teaching” involved in this process, has certain content pop at the top of a user’s Facebook feed, which allegedly gets Facebook’s software gatekeepers performance bonusess, according to the ex-insider. Similarly, this involves Facebook censors making sure that other content show “up dead-last.”

Ahmari cited the case of a New York Post article of the Biden family’s interactions with Chinese companies as one example of Facebook working to suppress the dissemination of controversial content that exposes the ruling class’s behavior.

The censorship Facebook engages is quite clever and not always apparent to the naked eye. The ex-insider detailed the following:

It all makes for perhaps the most chillingly sophisticated censorship mechanism in human history. “What they don’t do is ban a specific pro-Trump hashtag,” says the ex-insider. Instead, “content that is a little too conservative, they will down-rank. You can’t tell it’s censored.”

Ahmari did not name any of the employees at Facebook involved in the acts of censorship. He did, however, want to showcase “how  foreign nationals from a state that still bans Facebook have their hands on the levers of social media censorship here in America.”

The op-ed editor of the New York Post claims that the Hate-Speech Engineering team’s staff consists of a research scientist “based at the Seattle office who earned his master’s degree in computer engineering from the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing, according to his LinkedIn profile.” He continued highlighting other employees who had connections to China:

Another member of the team, a software engineer for machine learning based in Seattle, earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in computer science from Jilin University in northeast China. Still another, an engineering manager, earned his bachelor’s in computer science at Nanjing University in eastern China.

Another software engineer previously worked for the Communist-backed conglomerate Huawei, as well as the Beijing National Railway & Design Institute of Signal and Communication.

It’s up in the air if these Chinese nationals are connected to the CCP and receiving direct orders from them. That said, it cannot be ignored that immigration gets geopolitical when countries use subversive elements to undermine other countries.

BLP has reported on extensive cases of Chinese nationals getting busted for corporate and military espionage. Politics does not end because of increased trade between nations via “free” trade deals. This is one of the many risks of open borders and uncontrolled globalization.

A balance must be made between economic dynamism and the maintenance of national security. To tackle this, the U.S. will need an immigration timeout to allow for immigration assimilation and uphold national security interests.
