Pro-LGBT Jesuit priest Fr. James Martin is promoting on social media a rosary with “rainbow” beads for one of the decades which are to be used, the rosary’s creators say, to pray for the “full acceptance” of homosexual couples.
The Bible clearly states that God, under no circumstances will accept fornication, drunkenness, drug use, lying, evil speaking, cheating, bearing false witness, murder, extortion or any such like thing as a behaviour He will be bless. That means if we are to follow God, we must reject these things, repent, and walk after Him according to His word.
“Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.” Galatians 5:19-21 (KJV)
But the Bible also tells us that, under no circumstances, will God accept or bless same-sex unions of any kind. God calls it an abomination. He expects the LGBTQ person to come out of that lifestyle, repent of that and any other sin, get saved, and walk in newness of life.
“Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.” 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 (KJV)
The Catholic Church under Pope Francis is making extraordinary strides forward to accepting the LGBTQ in full fellowship, and we predict that soon same-sex weddings will be commonplace in the Roman Mass. Heresy begets heresy.
Pro-LGBT priest promotes ‘rainbow’ rosary with prayers for ‘full acceptance’ of gay couples
FROM LIFE SITE NEWS: The “Rosary of Modern Sorrows,” created by a Catholic social justice group Contemplative Rebellion, “invites us into guided meditation on the pain and suffering of our brothers and sisters in the U.S. and around the world,” the group’s website states. The group says it creates religious “pieces of jewelry” to “break down the barriers that separate faith, race, social status, and income inequality.”
The suggested prayer for the “rainbow” fifth decade states: “We pray for a welcoming of LGBTQ people by all churches, temples, mosques, and synagogues. We pray for LGBTQ couples, their children, and extended families. We Pray that they may be supported and loved, with full acceptance as people truly created in the image of God, a creation that God saw as ‘good’, and who deserve to live every aspect of life to the fullest.”
On Monday, Fr. Martin tweeted his endorsement of the rosary and its message.
Dear friends: No one asked me (or paid me) to share these, but I thought you’d like to see two new works of art: the Rosary of Modern Sorrow (which invites us to pray for various types of sufferings) and a new (Middle Eastern) Holy Family Christmas card. https://t.co/PPDUM35wfd pic.twitter.com/2yzgRIsrcI

The Catholic Church, following the words of Scripture and its constant, 2,000-year tradition, teaches that homosexual acts are gravely immoral, constituting a sin worthy of eternal punishment.
“They are contrary to the natural law,” states the Catechism of the Catholic Church. “Under no circumstances can they be approved,” it adds. Michael Hichborn, founder and president of the Lepanto Institute, told LifeSiteNews that Fr. Martin was promoting “sacrilege.”
“What Fr. Martin is promoting on social media is nothing short of sacrilege. This gross misuse of the Holy Rosary not only reduces its sublime mysteries to a series of cheap political points, but is designed specifically to pray for acceptance of one of the four sins that cry to Heaven for Vengeance,” he said,
“Sodom was swallowed by a raging inferno into the bowels of the earth because this particular sin is so offensive to God, and it is difficult to see how anyone who promotes it so heavily could escape a similar fate,” he added.
Fr. Martin’s record of pro-homosexual activism is lengthy and ranges from his many speeches and media appearances promoting homosexuality to his retweeting of a complaint that priests can’t “bless” gay unions to suggesting that the Church is full of “homophobia” and “marginalizes” the same-sex attracted.

The money you send in goes primarily to the building of the recording studio, but it also goes to the overall daily operations of this site. When people ask for Bibles, we send them out at no charge. When people write in and say how much they would like gospel tracts but cannot afford them, we send them a box at no cost to them for either the tracts or the shipping, no matter where they are in the world. Even all the way to South Africa. We even restarted our weekly radio Bible study on Sunday nights again, thanks to your generous donations.
But whatever you do, don’t do nothing. Time is short and we need your help right now. If every one of the 12,621 people on our daily mailing list gave $4.50, we would reach our goal immediately. If every one of our 151,781 followers on Facebook gave $1.00 each, we would reach 300% of our goal. The same goes for our 13,600 followers on Twitter. But sadly, many will not give, so we need the ones who can and who will give to be generous. As generous as possible.
