Vatican issues document rejecting idea that people can choose or change gender

What can you say anymore about the RCC. They are just determined to destroy themselves from the inside. Remember they control our schools.

The Vatican has issued an official document rejecting the idea that people can choose or change their genders and insisting on the sexual “complementarity” of men and women to make babies.

Pope Francis has repeatedly argued the position that people cannot choose their genders.
The document called for a new alliance among families, schools and society to offer a “positive and prudent sexual education” in Catholic schools so children learn the “full original truth of masculinity and femininity”.

It called gender fluidity a symptom of the “confused concept of freedom” and “momentary desires” that characterise post-modern culture.

It rejected terms such as “intersex” and “transgender” and said the purpose of the biological “complementarity” of the male and female sex organs was to ensure procreation.

Does anyone really care what the RCC thinks anymore?

I just sympathise with any transgender person who is treated badly or ostracized because their family follow church teaching. These statements cause suffering to real people but the RCC don't give a fcuk about that.

I'm confused. If they're saying that it's impossible to change ones biological sex then that's obviously true.

But isn't gender different?


It's foolish to deny the existence of transgenderism.

They do, and in the article there are examples of many members of the Catholic Church who disagree with the official document. I would have sympathy for anyone who is treated badly too regardless of their circumstances, so saying that the RCC don’t give a fcuk about that is clearly untrue. It’s a great deal more nuanced than that.

You’re also overlooking the fact that many more people who aren’t religious in the slightest, will argue against the idea that people can change their gender, and their disagreement with the idea has it’s foundations in science and politics as opposed to religion. My point is that people don’t have to be followers of any religion to be just as likely to ostracise people who don’t share their beliefs.

That also causes suffering to real people, but I would never say you don’t give a fcuk about that, because I know you always have done.

So we're relying on the RCC to state the bleeding obvious now?
