The Vatican drops a transgender truth bomb on ‘Pride Month’

At the beginning of the so-called ‘Pride Month’, the Vatican released its own take on the LGBT gender identity movement by reaffirming that there are only two genders – male and female He created them…

CNA – A Vatican department has issued a sweeping denunciation of so-called gender theory, and affirmed the principles of human dignity, difference, and complementarity.

“In all such [gender] theories, from the most moderate to the most radical, there is agreement that one’s gender ends up being viewed as more important than being of male or female sex,” the Congregation for Catholic Education wrote June 10, in a new document entitled “Male and Female He Created Them.”

“The effect of this move is chiefly to create a cultural and ideological revolution driven by relativism, and secondarily a juridical revolution, since such beliefs claim specific rights for the individual and across society.”

The document says it aims to set out an intellectual framework “towards a path of dialogue on the question of gender theory in education.”

Published at the beginning of “Pride Month,” during which many cities and corporations mark the campaign of LGBT advocacy, the document says that the Church teaches an essential difference between men and woman, ordered in the natural law and essential to the family and human flourishing.

“There is a need to reaffirm the metaphysical roots of sexual difference, as an anthropological refutation of attempts to negate the male-female duality of human nature, from which the family is generated,” the document explains.

“The denial of this duality not only erases the vision of human beings as the fruit of an act of creation but creates the idea of the human person as a sort of abstraction who ‘chooses for himself what his nature is to be.’”

As a devout Catholic I never had any doubt that the church would uphold the correct teaching on this, and I’m very glad they did.



I just wouldn’t have predicted such a move by the Vatican right at the beginning of the gayest month of the year.

I’m sure this didn’t sit well with a few wayward priests, but it’s nice to see the Vatican has found its voice on the issue in such a timely way.

  1. Noticed this came from the Vatican……….not Pope Francis. Glad there are still people in Rome who know the Bible. I was beginning to wonder.

    1. I’m sure there are people in Rome that know the Bible, but it sure ain’t the Catholic Church. I was raised a Catholic, then read the Bible from cover to cover in my 20’s. Haven’t set foot in a Catholic church since. Oh ye of willful ignorance.

    2. It is more probable than not, that the Pope does support this. With prayers I can’t but hope that clarity is seeping back with being aligned with the Magisterial teaching once again.
      The Pope also clarified Mary’s role in the proclamation of a day of Memorial. She was the first Christian to believe in the Son of God made Man. Without understanding it, she accepted it. And this Pope has reminded us that it to be celebrated the day after Pentecost. So with reservations, I am praying that clarity once again will dominate the Vatican…and NOT policitcal correctness. Lord knows it is SALVATION we need, and shepherds willing to lead us , and NOT abandon us into temptation!

  2. I finally figured out how the intersectionality hierarchy actually works and how idiotic LGBTWTFBBQ groups can support Palestine. It’s all about what is the most destructive toward traditional values in Western Civilization.

    Muslims are more important than even dudes winning women athletics.

  3. Take off your clothes in front of a mirror. Slowly turn around looking at your body. If you see girl parts….BINGO, you are female! If you see Male parts, then dadgum it, you are male! There are not and have never been anything but 2 genders! If you see anything else, seek psychiatric help!

      1. What if you’re blind? What if you don’t own a mirror? C’mon, T_ump… stop half-assing being obtuse and really unleash the strawman Kraken!

        1. I’m being obtuse? Let me spell it out for you. Some people have both male and female parts. So the poster is mistaken when he claims we are all either one gender or another as define by our genitals (Even Jesus spoke of some people having been born Eunuchs Although there is some debate about what he meant by that, it seems that even Jesus acknowledged that some are outside outside the typical, only male and female and they shall be joined as one, Biblical description.

          1. Yeah, there you go! Unleash that strawman Kraken! ROAR!

            Meanwhile, back at the real conversation that isn’t even talking about the, what, .001% of the population?

            1. Umm . . . you may want to look up what a “straw man argument” is.

              The poster claimed an absolute. “There are not and have never been anything but 2 genders!” Demonstrating that he is mistaken is not a “straw man.” Rather, it directly refutes his claim. We are not all born either male or female according to our genitals.

              As for the number of people born intersex, I’m no expert on the subject, but the I think all the numbers I’ve read are around a hundred to a thousand times higher than your estimate.

              But suppose it is only 1 in 10,000 or 1 in a million. What difference does it make? God made them that way, so they count. Biologically, things aren’t split as neatly as theologians would have us believe.

        1. Ahhhh . . . I get it. You think you’ve insulted me by derisively suggesting I’m a hermaphrodite. Yet am I not insulted, because to me hermaphrodites aren’t objects to be scorned, they are God’s children, same as me.

    1. @kong1967 Interesting, and pretty accurate considering that Time makes more left turns than the Indy 500.

      1. @dr-strangelove I’m sure Time loves it, but putting Time aside the story stays the same.

    2. @kong-1967 Everytime a new Pope takes over the Left tries to write articles to sway him to change the faith. The Pope’s comments were not what you think or how the media portrayed them. What the Pope was saying is that if a person suffers from homosexual attraction but they seek to be right with God, meaning they don’t participate in homosexual acts, then he isn’t going to condemn them for feelings they have but don’t act on. This is in line with the teachings of the Church, and very different from the article claiming the Pope says it’s okay to practice a homosexual lifestyle, which he did NOT do.

    3. The spirit of judas ascariet will be around till the end of time. That spirit will never be too far from the Chair of Peter. God bless

  4. Don’t you remember that oft-quoted passage from Genesis, “God created a helpmate for Adam and he named him Bob?” It must be in there somewhere… right?

    1. I remember God used Adam’s rib to create Eve so wait for the crazies to say Adam became Eve.

        1. Definitely not Steve. He was thoughtful and articulate. I appreciated many of his postings here and don’t recall him trolling people or trying to agitate.

      1. hmmm . . . that’s pretty good . . . and there have been stranger biblical interpretations.

      2. @squirrelly You actually remember that? Just how old are you?

        Lol, I had to do it. Hopefully a little humor doesn’t get me flogged.

    1. @democratsrfubar As I’ve said many times before, if God doesn’t smite America, he owes Sodom and Gomorrah an apology.

              1. Umm . . . you may want to look up what a “straw man argument” is.

                Why bother when you provide constant examples?

                Pretending the argument is over hermaphoditism rather than people who have some level of mental illness is such a great one. Keep on arguing as though you are kicking that strawman’s ass.

                The poster to whom you were responding was making a joke about people who claim to be another gender but can’t look in the mirror and obviously tell otherwise – not about the absolute certainty that hermaphrodites have never existed.

                But like the good little troll you are, you thought you could score some points by making (what you think) is an ingenious technical argument.

                Jeez, why am I explaining this to you again? You’re just going to keep on trolling in an intellectually dishonest way. You were Superba in a previous banned incarnation, weren’t you? The trolling dishonesty is so similar.

                1. LOL. Why are you explaining it again, when you don’t even understand it? You and the poster can pretend that life is simple everyone different than you has “a mental illness,” but that’s not supported by science.

    1. I once returned K stamps to the Post Office saying, no thank you, homey don’t play no K

  8. Just 10 years ago, who thought that the most controversial passage of Genesis would be, “male and female He created them”?

    1. Well . . . to be fair . . . most of the rest is not controversial only because most people do not try to take it literally.

      1. How literally was Jesus taking it when He said, “He which made them at the beginning made them male and female. For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife, and they twain shall be one flesh?”

        1. You left out the beginning. He was asking the Pharisees whether they had read the law, and he quotes Genesis affirmatively in his question. As for whether he meant it literally, it seems like it, but you’d have to ask him. I don’t pretend to speak for Jesus.

          Whatever Jesus meant, most people, including most American Christians, do not take this literally either. Otherwise divorce, sex out of wedlock, and other such sins wouldn’t be so widely accepted while homosexuality is still so widely vilified amongst the same people.

          Isn’t it odd that “Christians” spend so much time condemning others for their wrongdoings rather than focusing on the sins in their own lives? Even here, Jesus isn’t sending the Pharisees out to judge others, he is answering their question by referring them to their own law.

          1. Sure, let’s just pretend that Jesus quoted things without believing them. It makes no sense, but I suppose it lets you avoid admitting anything you don’t want to.

            The Christian doctrine is quite clear: marriage was ordained by God from the beginning, for men and women. Talking about other sins such as adultery and fornication is just an attempt to change the subject. Christians still consider them wrong, so they don’t offer any support to homosexuality or transgenderism.

            There are hypocrites who judge others for things they themselves do, and that’s a known problem. Then there are those who do the opposite: excuse the wrong things they themselves are doing or excusing by pointing a finger at other people. Which seems to be your tactic here.

            1. First, where exactly did I say Jesus didn’t believe it? Did you miss the part where i said he quoted it “affirmatively” and where I said it “seems like” he was taking it literally. Please don’t pretend my refusal to speak for Jesus is in any way a denial of his Word.

              Second, I understand that doctrines of many Christian sects view it just as you are presenting, and I am not really trying to dispute these doctrines.

              (Although it may be worth remembering that some of the same Christian sects also found biblical justification for slavery, the oppression of women and even the rape of wives, and other suchhorribles. How often do the Old and New Testaments warn us of false teachers and false profits, and of those who speak visions from their own minds, not from the mouth of the LORD? But, as I said, I’m not here to dispute the doctrine you state, so let’s set aside the reality that throughout history some “Christian doctrine” has proven to be “bad fruit,” and accept that this particular Christian doctrine as coming from “the mouth of the Lord.”)

              Talking about other sins as described from “the mouth of the Lord,” such as divorce, adultery, fornication, is NOT an attempt to change the subject. The “subject” is sin, and we are all sinners. And, hasn’t Jesus repeatedly warned us that, as sinners, we lack the clear vision necessary to judge others for their sins?

              . . . Who are you to judge your neighbor? . . . There is only one lawgiver and judge. . . . By speaking against and judging each other, you are speaking against and judging the law. . . . Judge not, lest ye be judged. . . . The blind cannot lead the blind, else they both end up in a pit . . . The student is not above the teacher. . . . Those who pass judgement on someone else have no excuses. By judging another they are condemning themselves . . . When a mere human being passes judgments yet does the same things, do you think he will escape God’s judgment? . . . He did not come to the world to judge those who will not heed His word, He came to save them. . . . Do not repay evil with evil. Do everything possible to live at peace with everyone. . . . each should test their own actions and carry their own load, and avoid comparisons to others. . . . do one to others as you would have them do to you . . .

              No doubt you know the verses better than I do. But, if you know the verses, why do you disregard them as to this one particular sin? Who are you to judge them?
