Jesuits, homosexualists, Oh-So-Superiorists.... you get the idea. Jos. Sciambra actually begins his post with a horrifying bit about Seattle U's (Jesuit school) annual drag-show featuring the women's rugby team (apparently nicknamed "The Seattle Twerkers" or something.)
Then he moves on to the Vice That Dares Not Speak Its Name, But Jesuits Shout It!!--the favorite vice of a lot of current Bishops and priests:
...On July 7, 2017, James Martin S.J. posted on his Facebook page a response from John D. Whitney, S.J., Pastor at St. Joseph Catholic Parish, to Archbishop Chaput’s review of Martin’s book “Building a Bridge: How the Catholic Church and the LGBT Community Can Enter into a Relationship of Respect, Compassion, and Sensitivity,” as well as the Archbishop’s understanding of Biblical condemnations regarding homosexual activity. Whitney wrote:
I appreciate that Archbishop Chaput enters into the dialogue, but I am intrigued, as well, by both the translation he uses (not the NABR, published by the Bishops) and by the sections he omits. Paul, a man of his times and circumstances, was clearly connecting the idolatry of the pagan world to the sexual behaviors that often accompanied it. Ritualized homosexuality and pederasty are significantly different from the loving and mutually chosen relationships of many committed gays and lesbians. It is for this very reason that the Church faces a deep call to moral examination and discernment: pederasty, hedonism, ritual and non-consensual sexuality are clearly contrary to the freedom of Jesus Christ. But, what we see today is something else, something not so easily answered by St. Paul’s words or those of Leviticus. We must dialogue, because we must discern–from the experience of real people as well as the historical understanding of the Church. When bad people act badly, that we can condemn; but when people who express great virtue in many ways experience attractions we had previously associated with evil, we must ask if our association has not been based on a false premise.Whitney was also the former Provincial for The Society of Jesus, Oregon Province. In 2011, the Oregon Province settled priest sex abuse claims for $166 million as part of their bankruptcy proceedings....
Why yes, of course. "Ritualized" anal intercourse is much, much, different from "loving" anal intercourse, you see. And St. Paul, a "man of his times", was ignorant about that difference, and probably just ignorant altogether. See, 'man of his times' means 'kinda dumb,' even if you are talking about Christ.
It is only now, in the 21st Century, that Man Has Progressed To Intellectual Heights! Just ask Teilhard deChardin. Or any homosexualist Jesuit, Cardinal, or Bishop.
