CHICAGO (RNS) — For Catholics, a talk about Jesus doesn’t seem controversial. But a lecture by the Rev. James Martin drew about 150 protesters Thursday (March 22) over his views on the church and LGBT people.
(RNS) — 'What most LGBT Catholics want first is simply to feel at home in their parishes, and not be treated like dirt, which many of them are,' said the Rev. James Martin, author of a new book on the Roman Catholic Church and LGBT people.
