    Fr. Martin is a winsome guide to all those who want to deepen their friendship with the Lord,’ Barron wrote.


    October 31, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) — Bishop Robert Barron, an auxiliary bishop for Los Angeles and founder of the popular “Word on Fire” ministry, experienced a tsunami of criticism after praising pro-LGBT Fr. James Martin in an endorsement for the Jesuit’s new book about prayer.

    “Delighted to share the final cover of ‘Learning to Pray: A Guide for Everyone,’ to be published in Feb by Harper One Books,” said Martin in a tweetwhich accompanies the galley proofs for the book’s cover.

    “Thanks to Bishop Barron, Cardinal B Cupich … and others for their support,” he added.

    I remember watching Bishop Barren give an interview where he waffled on L-Q issues. If he's going public to encourage Catholics, then he need to stick to scriptural teachings.

    I'm a big fan of Fr Barron. I wish people can understand that we can draw a line if the LGBT has invaded the church that marriage is now part of it. But having any form of political support shouldn't be seen as a negative. My political views on this is just do you. Don't shove it in my face, don't try to inject the ideology through saturating my entertainment mediums, and don't invade the church... if you go by your way, it's all your business.

    The St Paul catholic church in NYC is has an lgbt group, and it's nice to see that there are churches who are trying to make an effort in bringing them as close to God as possible, despite what they are. While I do not fully believe that it is something people are born with, I understand that the best we can do is try to make them come close to God as much as possible, despite what their challenges are.

    Some LGBT people much more descent people than the majority of christians who point fingers at them. Even if certain christians see them as sinning, these same christians are not sinless themselves.

    Never been a fan of Bishop Barron. He seems to me to be caught up in his celebrity.

    Why don’t these Bishops and lay persons promote and strengthen groups such as Courage. The guys who meet with Courage are the real deal Christians who get up everyday and deny themselves and follow Christ.

    Bishop Barron endorsed a book on prayer that hasn't even been released yet. The book isn't about homosexuality, it is about prayer. This weird obsession that people have with Bp. Barron is borderline stalking. :rolleyes:
