James Martin: Jasan znak Franjine duboke pastoralne skrbi za LGBT katolike i LGBT ljude širom svijeta

 
 
Papa Franjo sastao se 30. rujna s isusovcem James Martin, Jamesom Martinom, urednikom časopisa America, koji je postao poznat po svom poslu s LGBT katolicima u SAD-u i po svojoj podršci zagovaračkim skupinama homoseksualaca i lezbijki. Sastanak je održao u apostolskoj palači u Vatikanu i trajao je oko pola sata. Za sastanak Martin je poslije rekao da je to bio "jedan od najvažnijih trenutaka" svoga života i da je to "jasan znak Franjine" duboke pastoralne skrbi za LGBT katolike i LGBT ljude širom svijeta. “Jedan od najvažnijih trenutaka mog života. Danas sam se osjećao ohrabren, utješen i nadahnut Svetim Ocem. A njegovo vrijeme sa mnom, usred napornog dana i užurbanog života, čini se jasnim znakom njegove duboke pastoralne brige za LGBT katolike i LGBT osobe širom svijeta“, dodao je Martin.

James Martin
 
Franjo se svakodnevno susreću s pojedinim svećenicima, biskupima i članovima redovničkih redova, ali samo se neki od tih susreta javno najavljuju. Obično Vatikan najavljuje samo sastanke koje Papa održava u službenom svojstvu, poput svjetskih čelnika ili poglavara vjerskih redova. Martinova služba LGBT katolicima izazvala je oštre kritike na mreži i od nekih američkih biskupa. Nadbiskup Philadelphije Charles Chaput kritizirao ono što je, tvrdio je, "obrazac nejasnoće" u Martinovom djelu. Martin je odgovorio da je jasno iznio učenje Katoličke Crkve o istospolnim vezama. Martin je autor knjige Izgraditi most: Kako Katolička Crkva i LGBT zajednica mogu ući u odnos poštovanja, suosjećanja i osjetljivosti, koja se temelji na predavanju koje je održao kad je primio nagradu američkoga Ministarstva u 2016. Podržava ga engleski teolog James Alison, koji je izbačen iz dominikanskoga reda nakon što je izrazio neslaganje zbog crkvene zabrane istopolnih seksualnih odnosa.
