With many churches and denominations beginning to succumb to the will of the aggressive LGBT agenda, it’s about time someone stood up and laid out the facts.
That’s what the Catholic Church did on Monday, rejecting the concept of transgenderism and affirming that there are only two genders: male and female.
In an official document released by the Vatican’s Congregation for Catholic Education, entitled “Male and Female He Created Them,” the Catholic Church said the two complimentary genders are established by God and cannot be changed, as TheBlaze reported.
The document condemns “calls for public recognition of the right to choose one’s gender, and of a plurality of new types of unions, in direct contradiction of the model of marriage as being between one man and one woman, which is portrayed as a vestige of patriarchal societies.”
“The disorientation regarding anthropology which is a widespread feature of our cultural landscape has undoubtedly helped to destabilise the family as an institution, bringing with it a tendency to cancel out the differences between men and women, presenting them instead as merely the product of historical and cultural conditioning,” the document reads.
The Church also addresses the idea that gender can exist on a spectrum.
According to the document, this progressive concept is “founded on nothing more than a confused concept of freedom in the realm of feelings and wants, or momentary desires provoked by emotional impulses and the will of the individual, as opposed to anything based on the truths of existence.”
This dissertation couldn’t come at a more relevant time, as America is in the midst of “pride month,” where members of the LGBT community celebrate their various sexual identities.
While this paper was not signed by Pope Francis, the head of the Catholic Church has certainly made it clear where he stands on the issue.
“Let’s think of the nuclear arms, of the possibility to annihilate in a few instants a very high number of human beings,” Francis once said in an interview for a book, the National Catholic Reporter noted in 2015.
“Let’s think also of genetic manipulation, of the manipulation of life, or of the gender theory, that does not recognize the order of creation.”
“With this attitude, man commits a new sin, that against God the creator,” he added. “The true custody of creation does not have anything to do with the ideologies that consider man like an accident, like a problem to eliminate.”
That’s a pretty strong rebuke to progressive gender theory, to say the least.
The LGBT community has been unrelenting in the last decade, continuously pushing its agenda through the political arena, often via online activism.
A great deal of the cultural damage they’ve caused would be negated if they simply realized that disagreement with one’s lifestyle choices it not the same as outright hatred.
Let’s agree to disagree and move on.
