Franciscan "LGBT ministry" held event at infamous gay bar, "Stonewall"

St. Francis of Assisi Church, New York City (run by the Franciscans of Holy Name Province), operates a dissenting "LGBT ministry".  This "ministry" has, for a number of years, organized events at a number of gay bars, such as the Stonewall Inn

Such pro-"LGBT ministries" are extremely dangerous, misleading and not approved by the Church. Gay bars are hardly the place a person with same-sex attraction would go to if they were taking living a chaste life seriously. The absolute necessity for living chastely and avoiding grave sin is stressed in the Catechism of the Catholic Church: 

2357 ... homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered. 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.

2358. Homosexuals are called to chastity...

2396 Among the sins gravely contrary to chastity are masturbation, fornication, pornography, and homosexual practices.

Friends, the Franciscan involvement in the NYC gay scene is one to be exposed and condemned in the strongest possible terms.

These sorts of activities are damnable.

These 'men' pretending to be real Catholic priests are following the lead of James Martin. Why is the 'Diocese' putting up with this vile behavior? Maybe because the Bishop is just as VILE??? These men need to be outed, thrown out on their ears until such time as they can PROVE they have had a TRUE conversion. If we can't find a President Trump to 'drain the swamp' in the Catholic Church, they I guess the dear Lord will have to drain it. And woe be to the sodomite apostates when He does!! It will truly be earth shaking when He does.
