Pro-LGBT priest snub

New York Post - - NEWS - AP

The sem­i­nary at the Catholic Univer­sity of Amer­ica has can­celed a talk by a pop­u­lar Je­suit writer who urges com­pas­sion for LGBT peo­ple.

The Washington, DC, sem­i­nary is cit­ing a so­cial-me­dia back­lash to the work of the Rev. James Martin. Martin’s lat­est book — “Build­ing Bridges” — ad­vo­cates for di­a­logue and prayer with gays and les­bians.

Martin is editor-at-large at the Je­suit mag­a­zine Amer­ica and an ad­viser to the Vatican’s com­mu­ni­ca­tions of­fice.
