Bridge to Hell of Bp. McElroy: "Chasity" not "Central Virtue" in Defending Martin who says Chasity not required of Gays

-Bp. McElroy & Bp. Chaput helping the Heretical Fr. Martin in Building a Bridge to Hell-

Bishop Robert McElroy's San Deigo diocese went bankrupt after it paid $660 million to sex abuse victims.
(The San Diego Union-Tribune, September 10, 2017)

This happened because it's sex abusing priests, a vast majority of whom were homosexuals, didn't have the virtue of chasity.

Unbelievably, McElroy, in defending homosexual activist Fr. James Martin (who refuses to say if he is a homosexual or not), claims:

"But chasity is not the central virtue... Our central call is to love the Lord our God... Many times, our discussion in the church suggest that chasity has a singular powerful role in determining our moral character or our relationship with God. It does not."

"This distortion of our faith cripples many of our discussions of sexuality in general and homosexuality in particular."
(America, "Bishop McElroy: Attacks on Father James Martin expose a cancer with the U.S. Catholic Church," September 18, 2017)

Does McElroy believe:

That so long as homosexual priests "love the Lord our God" then sex abusing gay priest's chasity "is not the central virtue."

After all, the "singularly powerful role" of chasity in morality is a "distortion of our faith" which only "cripples many of our discussions of... homosexuality."

The sex abuse victims of the homosexual priests, I am sure, 100 percent disagree with McElroy's claim that chasity "is not the central virtue."

Martin, who McElroy defends, says chasity is not required of homosexuals because it is not a "received" teaching. (YouTube, "James Martin on Same-Sex Marriage, Humanae Virtae and Ex-Gays," September 20. 2017)

It is obvious that Martin is not a Catholic. That is he no longer holds to the moral teachings of the Church.

Is McElroy a Catholic? If he is, why is he defending Martin?

You can't be a Catholic unless you believe all the teachings of the Church.

As Cardinal Sarah said you can not love the Lord our God unless you keep all His commandments and "all the unchanging teachings of Christ."
(Wall Street Journal, "How Catholics Can Welcome LGBT Believers," August 31, 2017)

Cardinal Sarah's call for chasity for LGBT persons contrasts with:

-Bishop McElroy's claim that the "singularly powerful role" of chasity for homosexuals "is not the central virtue" and a "distortion of our faith"

-The heresy that chasity is not required of homosexuals proclaimed by Martin who McElroy and Bishop Charles Chaput defend.

Chaput said:

"Fr. Martin is a man of intellect and skill whose work I often admire." (First Things, "Civility and Church Life," September 21, 2017)

Martin is promoting mortal sin.

What he is promoting is that persons go to hell by continuing in unrepented mortal sin until death.

Martin is not promoting persons ask God for mercy for their mortal sins and to stop sinning so they can love God.

In defending Martin, Chaput and McElroy are abetting the heresy that chasity is not required of homosexuals.

Chaput and McElroy are helping Martin build a bridge to hell.

OPEN LETTER TO TAYLOR MARSHALL

Dr. Marshall, for many of us (myself included), your podcasts have been a source of enlightenment, entertainment, and—quite frankly—hope, during this very dark time in the history of the Church.  As someone who studied his way into the Catholic Faith, having the grace and the integrity to acknowledge the necessity of conversion from the Protestant sect to which you formerly belonged, you have not been content to rest on your laurels but have “put yourself out there,” launching the New Saint Thomas Institute and discussing current events sub luce aeternitatis.  Your willingness to deal with things the way they are, and not the way they would be if we were all painted on holy cards already, is refreshing and appreciated.
Accordingly, I am writing to you today in regard to your recent statements about being “open” to the idea that Jorge Bergoglio is not actually the pope.  For a person in your position, so much as admitting that possibility must require all the grace and integrity you h…

Our Lady of Good Success: Is Pope Benedict the "Prisoner in the Vatican... in that Greatest Crisis of the Church"?

The apparitions of Our Lady of Success have been approved by the Catholic Church. Moreover, Our Lady of Good Success has had many miracles associated with it.

Here is part of the "Fourth Apparition: January 21, 1610" which the influencial and prominent Catholic blogger Laramie Hirsch believes may possibly be referring to Pope Benedict XVI:

"The Supreme Shepherd and Vicar of Christ on Earth, who, being a prisoner in the Vatican... in that greatest crisis of the Church, he who is obligated to speak in due time will remain silent."
(The Story of Our Lady of Good Success and Novena, Dolorosa Press, Pages 40-41)

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church.


Sex-abuse Worldview Vs. Christian Worldview

By Fred Martinez

Professor Allan Bloom, a philosopher who wrote "The Closing of the American Mind," thought that Friedrich Nietzsche was the father of modern America. He said, "Words such as 'charisma,' 'lifestyle,' 'commitment,' 'identity,' and many others, all of which can easily be traced to Nietzsche ... are now practically American slang."

But the most important Nietzschean slang word is "values."

"Values" are the death of Christian morality because values simply mean opinions. If opinion is how things are decided, then might makes right.

One must remember that whenever someone talks about values in modern America – family values or religious values or place-the-blank-in-front-of values – they are saying there is no real or objective right or wrong – only opinions of the self and its will to power.

Nietzsche's philosophy is summed up by Bloom as

Commitment values the values and makes them valuable. Not love…
