Theological College Disinvites Father James Martin From Speaking Engagement

From the National Catholic Reporter:

Jesuit Father James Martin, an editor at America magazine, has been disinvited from speaking at the Theological College, a seminary affiliated with The Catholic University of America, following pressure from online-based groups. 

Father Martin was invited to speak Oct. 4 on the theme of encountering Christ. However, the Theological College said that, “since the publication of his book, Building a Bridge, Theological College has experienced increasing negative feedback from various social-media sites regarding the seminary’s invitation.”

All I can say is THANK GOD!
