DETROIT (ChurchMilitant.com) – On Twitter Wednesday, Fr. James Martin promoted a film celebrating a dissident pro-gay bishop.The notorious celebrity Jesuit priest took to Twitter to promote American Prophet, a movie “about the life of the great Bp. Thomas Gumbleton.”

Michigan Filmgoers: “American Prophet,” about the life of the great Bishop Thomas Gumbleton, will be screening at the East Lansing Film Festival: Lansing Celebration Cinemas’ Studio C theater, on Friday, November 10th, at 2pm: http://elff.com/festival/ 

Bishop Gumbleton, who Fr. Martin called “great,” is a theological dissident known for his outspoken support of homosexuality.

In 2013, the retired bishop said to homosexuals living in a state of grave sin, “Don’t stop going to communion. You’re okay.”

He said this as a direct counter to Detroit’s Abp. Allen Vigneron, who had said publicly, “For a Catholic to receive Holy Communion and still deny the revelation Christ entrusted to the Church is to try to say two contradictory things at once.”

In 2006, the Vatican forced Gumbleton to “retire,” owing to his years of homosexualist activism.

The heretic bishop has also been barred from speaking in the diocese of Phoenix, Arizona, and the diocese of Marquette, Michigan.

Martin’s promoting of American Prophet merited only backlash on Twitter. One Catholic replied to Martin, “Millstone Award of 2017.”

This refers to Christ’s claim in Luke 17:1–2, “It is impossible that scandals should not come: but woe to him through whom they come. It were better for him that a millstone was hanged about his neck, and he be cast into the sea than that he should scandalize one of these little ones.”

Another Twitter response cited the Latin phrase, “Quos Deus perdere vult, prius demen[t]at.” “Those whom God wishes to punish, He first drives insane.”

In Christian tradition, the phrase suggests how sin begets disorder in the sinner’s psyche, dulling the conscience, strengthing the passions’ sway over the will and subverting the role of the intellect. Over time, habitual sin can gradually lead to sheer insanity.

In early October, Fr. Martin showed support on Twitter for Fr. Gregory Boyle, a fellow Jesuit who has spoken out against Church teaching on marriage and sexuality.

In a podcast in June, Martin said he would “canonize” pro-gay activist Sr. Jeannine Gramick. Sister Gramick has been censored by the Vatican for her dissent. She founded sodomy-promoting New Ways Ministry, which has been condemned repeatedly by Church authorities owing to its rejection of natural law.

Catechism of Catholic Church teaches that, “Homosexuality refers to relations between men or between women who experience an exclusive or predominant sexual attraction toward persons of the same sex. It has taken great variety of forms through the centuries and in different cultures. Its psychological genesis remains largely unexplained. Basing itself on Sacred Scripture, which presents homosexual acts as acts of grave depravity (cf. Gen 19:1-29; Rom 1:24-27; 1 Cor 6:10; 1 Tim 1:10), tradition has always declared that ‘homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered” (CDF, Persona humana 8). They are contrary to the natural law. They close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity. Under no circumstances can they be approved” (CCC: 2357).
