James Martin’s pro-gay agenda.Cardinal Wilfrid Napier of Durban, South Africa, jumped into the celebrity Jesuit’s Twitter feed over the weekend. Martin was attending an LGBT conference at Loyola University in Maryland, and tweeted about his excitement over the event.
“I’m meeting so many amazing young people, and learning so much [at] the ‘Ignatian Q’ conference at @LoyolaMaryland today in Baltimore,” Martin wrote. “It’s an inspiring gathering of LBGTQ students and their advisers from the 28 Jesuit colleges and universities in this country. AMDG.”
