"Not to oppose error is to approve it; and not to defend truth is to suppress it; and indeed to neglect to confound evil men, when we can do it, is no less a sin than to encourage them."

“Who is going to save our Church? Not our bishops, not our priests and religious. It is up to you, the people. You have the minds, the eyes, and the ears to save the Church. Your mission is to see that your priests act like priests, your bishops, like bishops, and your religious act like religious."
-Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen, 1972

the cross stands firm.”

Walter Reed Oncologist Stands Up for Smokers, Then Faces Backlash

Published on September 17, 2017

A few weeks ago, I introduced an imaginary man, Dr. James Martin. He’s an oncologist. He works on behalf of the Pipe/Snuff/Cigar/Cigarette/Hookah Using (PSCCHU) rights movement.

The piece pointed up the absurd illogic of Jesuit Father (not Doctor) James Martin. He’s doing for sexual sinners what Dr. Martin could do for smokers. Now the real Fr. Martin is stoking civil war in Catholic circles. How? Through his glamorous speaking gigs before faithful Catholic audiences. So I thought it was time to check in on Doctor Martin. Let’s see how the media’s treating him. The news report below reproduces almost verbatim the New York Times’ coverage of Fr. Martin’s latest controversy. I just switched a few words out here and there. See how balanced, objective, and fair the Times’ report appears in that new light.

Oncologist Sticks Up for Smokers, Then Takes the Heat

James Martin, M.D. knew his latest book — which urges a dialogue between the medical establishment and Pipe/Snuff/Cigar/Cigarette/Hookah Users (PSCCHU) who feel estranged from it would be provocative. Even though the book was approved by his superiors in oncology at Walter Reed Hospital as being in line with hospital policy and was endorsed by several radiologists, he did not expect everyone to agree. That’s fine, he said. That’s why dialogue was needed.Stream Satire Logo - 360

His public position on this hot-button issue — most recently in the book, Building a Bridge, but also in speeches, articles and social media — has earned him the gratitude of parents of young smokers or adults who feel unwelcome in gyms and hospital waiting rooms because of their smoking orientation. But his stance has also led to “joking” threats of violence and insults against him. Old-fashioned doctors have called him “reckless,” a “tobacco industry shill,” “a patsy” and guilty of “leading young people to early deaths.” In recent weeks, campaigns by people opposed to him have prompted three high-profile medical groups to disinvite him from events where he was to be the featured speaker.
