Alison Posted April 10 Share Posted April 10 This is kind if a response to something that came up in the Vocation Station, with multiple individuals expressing how they believe that transgender people should be "affirmed" and "supported" in their personhood by Catholics in a spirit of "Christian charity", that medically transitioning to the opposite sex is essentially "good" for their wellbeing and helps prevent suicide (which is just statistically not true but that's beside the point), they know trans people who have transitioned and are "happy", etc. I witnessed a complete misunderstanding as to what the Church teachers regarding sex and gender (Pope Francis clearly stated in Amoris Laetitia No. 56: "biological sex and the socio-cultural role of sex (gender) can be distinguished but not separated."), as well as why gender theory (this idea that your biological sex is basically irrelevant and gender is "what you really are on the inside" which could be male, female, both, neither, etc. Just google the "Gender Unicorn", it will give you a good understanding as to what these people believe) is completley incompatible with Catholicism. Gender ideology attempts to completley redfine human nature and it is seriosuly a dangerous path of thinking. Therefore, I figured we should really have a discussion about this. Here is a document (USCCB) explaining how Catholics should respond to Gender ideology: https://www.usccb.org/issues-and-action/marriage-and-family/marriage/promotion-and-defense-of-marriage/upload/Gender-Ideology-Select-Teaching-Resources.pdf Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
