Response to Pennsylvania Report
Renowned American Jesuit, James Martin, who spoke to us about his talk in the RDS on “Showing welcome and respect in our parishes for LGBT people and their families” gives his response to the recent Pennsylvania report in the United States. Being from Pennsylvania himself, he felt particularly horrified it and he says that it was worse than what was revealed in 2002. He added that the Church really needs to address the issue properly because from his experience “people are getting really fed up and they are just walking”
He is asking for full disclosure from every religious organisation and diocese and that it be handed over to lay people and added the Pope Francis is the only one with the authority to drive through this radical approach.
