A discussion with Renown Jesuit Father James Martin, SJ.
Tomorrow night Fordham University Lincoln Center in the heart of New York city is hosting a discussion with renown author Jesuit Father James Martin, SJ. on the latest from the Synod titled
"WHO AM I TO JUDGE" --
In keeping with the Popes theme of-- try not to obsess too much on gay issues driving people away, if a person is sincerely seeking God and trying to find him WHO AM I TO JUDGE, famously said the Pope.
While the synod thinkers tinkered with syntax and wording on a document concerning whether we
should 'welcome' gays, or 'provide for' gays (whether it was right to shut down completely all catholic social services for adoption in DC and Boston because a gay couple might show up) the basic premise according to Fr. Martin's prolific facebook page is that gays are our brothers and sisters in Christ who have God endowed skills, talents and contributions to make to the Church. He wants them 'welcomed' with open arms. That's the Christian thing to do.
If you are in NYC this is a must see TV event (meaning I hope they film it and post the whole thing on Facebook/Youtube.
