New Jersey priest suspended for homosexual advocacy
September 02, 2016
A New Jersey priest has been suspended from public ministry because of his persistent homosexual advocacy.
Father Warren Hall revealed on Twitter that he had been suspended by Archbishop John Myers of Newark, because his public statements and actions are “confusing the faithful.” Last year Father Hall had been removed from his post as chaplain at Seton Hall University because of his outspoken support for homosexual causes.
Father Hall indicated that he thought his suspension showed that Archbishop Myers was out of step with Catholic thinking. He wrote on Twitter that “@Pontifex’s Reform are taking too long.”

When will Vice-President Joe Biden's "suspension" from the Church and Sacraments happen for actually officiating at a homosexual "marriage"? It wasn't his job to perform such a marriage, like it might have been that embattled county clerk's "job" to issue a license some months ago, which she refused to do. He actually had to get special permission and certification to perform this marriage. He was not required to do it; he wanted and sought to do it and did it! When will his "suspension" happen?
