Catholics MUST Fight Transgenderismeditor
Challenging the party line on Transgenderism puts doctors’ careers in jeopardy…
It has already happened to scientists who challenge the scientific theory of Climate change. They are maligned and called Climate deniers. Some even have their jobs threatened. Now Doctors who challenge unscientific Transgender politics are having the same kinds of dirty techniques used to try to silence them. Source
Compare the facts in the above report to the propaganda that is being thrown at us day in and day out on our TV screens and in newspapers. There’s NO science behind this stupidity. Learn some of those facts by heart and use them to fight this scandalous propaganda. No Catholic can support this scandal OR be silent as it spreads like wildfire. Such silence makes us complicit in grave sin. Click here to read an excellent article by a Catholic woman published in The Universe. More Catholics need to show a lead here: writing letters to support those, like Caroline Farrow, who speak out is one worthy apostolate that costs no more than a postage stamp or the few minutes that it takes to write an email – click here.
Already we are seeing Catholics, including priests and teachers, going along with this nutty idea that men can become women and women can become men. Crazy. Click here to read the comments section in our recent blog on Fatima and the Vision of Hell, where we discuss the shocking news of the complicity of Archbishop Peter Smith in the promotion of LGBT issues in his schools in Southwark, specifically the introduction of a “gender neutral” uniform in St Anthony’s Catholic Primary school – no replies to any of our emails and phone calls from any of the parties responsible up to and including the archbishop himself. Then there’s the scandal of St Mary’s Primary in the same archdiocese, inviting the militant LGBT group Stonewall in to conduct “workshops” with pupils. Child abuse, writ large.
Which brings me to our central topic for discussion…
Bottom Line: Transition-Affirming Protocol Is Child Abuse
…These professionals are using the myth that people are born transgender to justify engaging in massive, uncontrolled, and unconsented experimentation on children who have a psychological condition that would otherwise resolve after puberty in the vast majority of cases.
…These harms constitute nothing less than institutionalized child abuse. Sound ethics demand an immediate end to the use of pubertal suppression, cross-sex hormones, and sex reassignment surgeries in children and adolescents, as well as an end to promoting gender ideology via school curricula and legislative policies.
It is time for our nation’s leaders and the silent majority of health professionals to learn exactly what is happening to our children, and unite to take action. End of Extract…
“Transition-Affirming Protocol Is Child Abuse”…
I agree, wholeheartedly – do you?
Well this time I agree with you completely! I was appalled to read in the paper today that there has been a huge increase in referrals to the Tavistock clinic for children with so called gender issue. There was also reference to “the sex assigned at birth” rather than the sex one is born into. Cunning choice of language here which seems to underpin the idea being peddled that one can choose ones gender. The speed at which this campaign is gaining hold in the national consciousness is frightening. In the popular media, dramas, soaps etc is now blatant to have homosexual relationships portrayed as completely respectable. How long before we have a sex change in Coronation Street? Oh hang on they have already done that!
It is even more scary that the Church leaders are silent on this, no doubt taking a liberal view as ever. When a Catholic primary school is also actively complicit in this gender fluidity nonsense then one fears for all young children. It is indeed child abuse as you say.
I agree about the “cunning use of language” – that is how the whole LGBT agenda has been pushed down our throats. Language is crucial to these machinations, it’s how people are fooled into thinking they need to accept the unacceptable and defend the indefensible. They are not using their critical thinking faculty – it’s switched off because they think the powers-that-be know what is right all the time, and wouldn’t lead them astray.
That is especially true of Catholics trusting priests, bishops and popes. They’ve had their intellects dulled after 50 years of liberalism and so they really are confused, but IMHO it’s a confusion which is inexcusable. Any Catholic, especially clergy, who is so easily tricked into following these evil agendas, has to be culpable. They have a duty to be truly informed about God’s law and if they took the trouble to study the issues properly, they would see immediately what a load of absolute nonsense this whole thing is, as if anyone can “choose” their gender identity.
I would love to be in a position to survey every parish in England (and the whole of the UK) to see how many priests will now preach about this transgenderism and call it out for the evil that it is.
“The speed at which this campaign is gaining hold in the national consciousness is frightening.”
Absolutely. The author of the introductory report is right to highlight the career danger for doctors and scientists if they dare to challenge this madness. For all the blether about “diversity” and “equality” and freedom of speech, the allegations of “hate speech” and various “phobias” come thick and fast at the first sign of any fightback.
Whatever happened to the various groups for Catholic doctors and lawyers that were around not so long ago; there would be letters published in the Catholic (and secular) press signed from these professional groups quite routinely, only a few short years ago. This transgender madness is surely a sign that, for once, reinventing the wheel would be a good thing – let’s pray that there’s a “Doctor Who” out there to resurrect one of the faith groups for Catholic doctors, with whatever legal protections might be written into their constitution to permit them to speak out (cough, cough) in the best interests of these poor transgender people…
Re “the cunning use of language” that Elizabeth mentioned: Wasn’t that the point of the novel 1984 by Eric Blair (aka George Orwell)?
Yes, aside from being sheer depravity, it certainly is child abuse, truth abuse, soul abuse and God abuse, and it is sure to cause even more depravity to rain down upon us if the Church does not resist (which, under the present leadership, it will not. Quite the opposite: the Church has become merely an extension and tool of the United Nations’ satanic agenda.)
I forget who on this blog pointed us to this website (might have been Westminster Fly), but this morning he (Statistician to the Stars) posted a very timely article, giving those of us who resist the revolution a little ammunition:
(Don’t be put off by the title, it is tongue-in-cheek)
It really is “sheer depravity” – so why are so many people just treating it as though it is perfectly normal, like these are a victim group fighting for their rights?
That’s a useful link – thank you. Much of the data given there is also given in the introductory article above, but, you know what they say, “repetition is the mother of education”…
I think this item bears learning by heart and repeating at every opportunity:
The hypothesis that gender identity is an innate, fixed property of human beings that is independent of biological sex — that a person might be “a man trapped in a woman’s body” or “a woman trapped in a man’s body” — is not supported by scientific evidence.
That’s it… in the proverbial nutshell…
I completely agree that transgenderism is an ideology, it’s not a medical condition at all.
There’s not a shred of scientific evidence for it. Even the feminist, Germaine Greer, says these “transgender women” are not real women at all, but she later tried to backpedal showing how difficult it is today to go against the tide of popular opinion, although I would add that this opinion is manufactured by the media, IMHO
As for Catholic schools promoting it, that is truly shocking. At one time parents would have risen up en masse to take their children out of those Southwark schools. Shame on all the so-called Catholics for not doing so now.
Another satanic agenda being imposed on our children by so called “Catholics”. It is beyond words to describe the depravity that so called “Catholic” teachers, Governors, Priests will stoop to inflict their evil.
I have not heard of one churchman coming out and demanding an end to this transgenderism on our children. They have been corrupted for years in the Catholic schools by complicit teachers, Catholic Education Service and laity! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
The Liberal media will squash any air time on Catholic views,
What are they so afraid of – that their arguments do not stand up to reason or facts. Clip below shows Ben Shapiro destroying transgenderism
I ‘m beginning to think we are in Nazi Germany, where so called free speech was banned! where in this case anyone who disagrees with their evil agenda they label it “hate” speech and “intolerance” where as they are in fact they are the “intolerant” people who do not want the truth to come out. They “hate” Catholics who tell the truth.
Supporting you all the way Editor,
I’m quite a fan of Ben Shapiro on the trans issue, but it’s disappointing that he has no problem with birth control.
Yes, that is a shame that he does not see that many forms of contraceptives also act to cause early abortion.
It is completely ludicrous, this whole transgender movement.
It is also very noticeable that everyone in the media and among the politicians who are interviewed, see it as perfectly acceptable, normal even. How can that be? It’s truly beyond belief.
Is the same thing going to happen when the Paedophile Rights people step up their campaigning? Where is it all going to end?
That is a disgrace about the schools actively pushing the LGBT agenda. Even if Fatima had never happened, it’s obvious that there is a crisis in the Church when we have bishops and archbishops who are actually encouraging the transgender ideology. I think, if my memory serves, the lowest part of Dante’s Hell is reserved for traitors.
There seems to be a form of insanity taking over. It genuinely seems to be demonic in origin – and I don’t use that lightly. People seem utterly confused, ‘not knowing their left from their right.’
These are very strange times. Arch-feminist Germaine Greer has been ‘no platformed’ (i.e. banned from speaking in a university debate) because of her views on this madness.
Even as a non-Catholic, I am staggered to read that Catholic schools are going along with this. Whatever my theological disagreements with the Catholic Church, I thought it would be strong on moral issues unlike, say, the Church of Scotland which pretty much given up the ghost and would never criticise the trends of society.
Unlikely alliances are formed because of this. Feminists are generally opposed and, politically, there are those on the left and right who are fighting this madness.
Brendan O’Neill is, I think, an atheist but is also a vocal critic on transgenderism. His latest – http://www.spiked-online.com/newsite/article/the-orwellian-nightmare-of-transgender-politics/20116#.WXzclOmQyM8
“It’s madness. And most people know it’s madness. Ask any normal, decent member of the public if Dave, 32, born a boy, still in possession of a penis, and a five o’clock shadow on a rough weekend, is a man or a woman, and I bet you they will say: ‘Man.’ Not because they are prejudiced or ‘transphobic’ – the latest phobia slur designed to pathologise dissent – but because they understand reality. And truth. And biology and experience. They know that in order to be a woman, you first have to have been a girl. They know womanhood is not a pose one strikes in front of the mirror but is biological, relational, cultural and social. They know the man who wears a dress is a man who wears a dress. Which is cool, and his choice, and he must have the right to wear that dress. But he isn’t a woman. We know this. At some level he knows this. Why won’t more people say it?”
Well said. Many thanks for the quote from Spiked Online.
I wish to clarify just one thing, though, regarding the Church.
The Catholic Church has no power to change or amend in any way, the moral law and it is the Catholic Church to which God has given charge of protecting and expounding His natural moral law. “The Church” then, cannot support any of these evils, not the LGBT “rights” movement or the “transgenderism” being pushed right now. Those Catholic schools and bishops who are participating in this evil, are doing so because they are defying God’s law, not because the Church condones the evil. They are doing, in their way, what Martin Luther did in the 16th century – effectively running their own religion.
The problem today is that we are experiencing a crisis of faith and authority, whereby today we have a very bad pope – we have had some less than perfect popes in the past, but never one like this. He is the worst pontiff ever. He’s so bad that there are people within the Church arguing that he cannot be the pope at all! They’re wrong, of course. He is the pope, he’s just not good at it!
This crisis manifests itself chiefly in a spiritual blindness which has led to loss of faith and an increase in moral decadence in many clergy and hierarchy – if you haven’t heard of the prophecies which warned of this coming in the twentieth century, I suggest you read up on them, firstly asking Our Lady (however foreign that may be to you) to open your eyes to the truth of what is going on in our times.
She warned, way back in the 17th century, of the crisis to hit the Catholic Church in the twentieth century, with specific mention of the attacks on marriage that would come, and the failure of churchmen to speak out – read about that here
Later, in 1917 at Fatima in Portugal she reminded us of the existence of Hell and warned of the crisis to come – that part of the message of Fatima has been suppressed by the Vatican, due, the experts argue, to the fact that it contains a warning that changing the Mass and opening up the Church to the influence of the world, would lead to the decline that we are now experiencing. Read about Fatima here
It is truly demonic in origin, no question about it, and the reason many are going along with it is that they don’t want to appear to be out of step with modernity. It takes a very strong character today, not to mention the grace of God at work, to stand up and question the madness. The media and the various other pressure groups of Lucifer are just waitng for such people to challenge their evil and they round on that individual like the pack of wolves they are.
So yes, it is madness, as you say, but a madness proceeding from badness. These people know that they promote evil and unnatural things not accepted as normal by any culture since the foundation of the earth.
The most alarming, recent, decision by the UK Government is the plan to allow people to seek to transition without seeking proper professional specialist advice. At least up until now people with such complex issues have been screened in some way before opting to transition. If things get any worse the units will be on the same block as a Drive Through Fast Food Outlet.
Let us hope, and pray, sanity will return and the moral order will be restored.
Yes indeed! And I note that the government is now pushing the “binary” thing as well, that is, people do not identify with any gender and therefore consider themselves genderless. It just beggars belief that any society could degenrate to such a level of depravity and claim to be “Proud” of its new-found “freedom”. The loonies truly have taken over the asylum.
I’m on my smartphone so I can only post a brief comment. Catholics must resist this madness with every fibre of their being! The silent majority are allowing this to be presented as the new norm. We cannot allow this to happen without raising our voices.
I have to say I am really stunned at the lack of Traditional Catholics who write letters, comment on blogs and send emails. Some Catholics they are! It takes a few minutes to write an email! I think that a lot of Traditional Catholics have an “I’m alright, Jack!” attitude. They have the Mass and the Sacraments and aren’t interested in anything else. That’s not showing a love for the Church.
I couldn’t agree more. If even half the people attending traditional chapels were actively involved in the lay apostolate, it would make such a difference.
I’ve even heard of home-schoolers teaching their children to “keep their heads down”. Well, in that case, they might as well have attended the local schools because you can keep your head down there as much as anywhere else! Crazy people.
I agree Petrus. Why are they all not up there complaing? Well, they’re all right (jack) aren’t they?
Despite my alluring avatar I was once considered to be a total tom boy. Often family members used to tease me that I should have been born a boy. Well, I’m now a married woman with a largish family which is still growing. If, aged 8 or 9 somebody had suggested a transgender thingy for me I’m sure I would have been up for it, not understanding what it was all about. Being such a notice box back then, I would have loved all the attention.
This issue is sheer wickedness and I cannot believe that our clergy would be complicit in this. They are a bunch of weak kneed nancy boys!
“I agree, wholeheartedly – do you?”
I DO AGREE EITHER.
I suspect you mean that you agree “as well” (not “either”)
Still, I couldn’t say the same thing in French, so I’ve a cheek to correct you, with English as good as any Glaswegian just out of the pub! 😀
Thank you Editor for your rectification: I do agree as well (je suis tout à fait d’accord moi aussi).
Despite the obvious and inescapable insanity of transgenderism, I’m not surprised that media and politician types are supporting it and trying to enforce it. Not because they really think there’s nothing abnormal about it, but, I’d wager, because they are afraid of losing their jobs if they resist. That’s how it works, with this as well as the “gay marriage” baloney that preceded it: if you resist, you will be punished economically. Think of who controls the gov’t and the media….and academia….
As for why churchmen are supporting it, that made no sense to me at first, but then I recalled that transgenderism insanity has always been a major plank in the radical homosexual platform. And that means that the Lavender Mafia, a powerful force in the modern Church, will be supporting it in their ongoing efforts to change Church teaching about homosexuality.
(And I’d say they are pretty close, given AL, and the sordid company Francis keeps, as well as the scandalous appointments he makes.)
In other words, clerical support for transgenderism is another sign of the power of the Lavender Mafia.
All very true. I can only think of one thing to add and that to your concluding sentence: and the Devil…
Ed this Government will strangle themselves eventually and so will the LGBTQIXYZ. Alphabet Squad. As far as they say now I can awake and on that day declare myself a Female. If this Law had been in a few years ago I would have been down like a Bat out of Hell to local Pensions Office to declare myself a Woman thus getting my O.A.P. earlier. In other words there is, as they say, more than one way to skin a cat.
Love it! I have to say, though, that much as I love my opposite-gender friends, I don’t want to be one of them.. I mean, obviously I can’t be one of my own friends, but what I MEAN is well… you’ll get my drift…
After all, you know what men say about being a man: if you want to change the world, do it while you’re a bachelor because once your married, you can’t even change the TV channel!
I told you that in confidence!!!
Oops! Seriously, I can keep a secret. Oscar Wilde said: One should never trust a woman who tells one her real age. A woman who would tell one that would tell one anything.
Ask yourself just how long you have been trying to find out my real age, and you’ve got it. You can trust me to eternity!
But if you wake up one morning and decide you’re a cat – you know, following the newest craze of trans-specie-ism – you might want to find another way to mortify the flesh….other than skinning it….
Victor when you look at these statements and Posts if it wasn’t so serious we wouldn’t know whether to laugh or cry . On various news outlets you now read of Cis Genders Ass Genders Etc Etc and it really is without doubt Evil . Even the the one about 2 Lesbians already castrating a 7 year old boy to make him a girl how on Earth can a so called Doctor even accounting for all the money do that . God I can mind when my younger brothers would dress up at Halloween and wear High Heels and one night was enough to have them on Even if they got loads a Monkey Nuts . Now if a young boy has High Heels on playing or whatever some of these Mothers and Fathers can’t get them to the so called Sex Change Doctor quickly enough. I certainly as you know the Answer to all of this Gender Bender nonsense but it looks as if Society is now to far gone to reverse this Total Madness. God Bless . J. D.
It is satanic.
Absolutely, it is Satanic. With bells on!
Your promotion of Scottish culture on the other thread (“clippies”) reminded me of something regarding this thread (so, in order to preserve my Christmas bonus, I dutifully switched threads….). This transgenderism has been prepared in very small ways for a long time, i.e. waiters and waitresses became “servers” (another twisted reference to the Church!), the mailman became a “mail carrier,” stewardesses and stewards on airplanes became “flight attendants,” comedians and comediennes became “comics,” chairmen became “chairpersons,” etc. In other words, the effort to remove gender from everyday language, and replace it with “gender-neutral” language, has been going on for quite a while.
Perhaps the other bloggers can think of more examples?
Yes, you are right – this whole LGBT/Feminist skulduggery has been designed to build up to the ultimate attack on humanity; ending the distinction between male and female and even the very concept of “gender”.
I can’t think of other examples – your list is pretty detailed – but you omitted one other way of replacing “chairman” – as well as “chairperson”; we, over here in the UK, usually have a “Chair” – the gender neutral term replacing “chairman” or even “chairperson”. It never fails to make me smile inside, and I am always dying to say “WOW, you really do not look like a chair” and sometimes, the really wicked girly side of me – if the “Chair” is male – is tempted to ask if I could sit in his lap, after all, isn’t that what a “Chair” is for! I’ve been tempted, but never had the nerve. Maybe one day!
Just thinking though, that the development from “Chairperson” to “Chair” may signal a further development in the gender bender world. Maybe now, people can choose to become objects. Maybe I could feel I’ve been trapped in this human female body when I really should have been a lovely sideboard, or a …er…. chair! Just call me Ikea!
What a totally mad, mental, crazy world.
The removal gender neutral language in relation to jobs had nothing to do with transgenderism, Transgenderism is a completely different problem, and of massive proportions.
Of course! Couldn’t possibly be a plan. Whoever said “I love it when a plan comes together” didn’t really mean he had a PLAN!
Gerragrip and lighten up.
It is foolish to see a conspiracy in every matter.
I believe the issues of age of consent, gay marriage, and transgenderism are part of a big picture operation.
But referring to people doing exactly the same job in gender terms is hardly that important. A person who Waits on Table, whether male or female, is serving.
However, on a woman can be a Mother , or a wife, and so there gender clearly matters.
I believe people adding “unit” to the word “Family” is part of an attempt to change the language of what constitutes a family, but that again is different to calling a person who waits on a Table, as server. In relation to a Family, the word “family” alone should suffice.
Oh, give it a rest.
Wrong again! The intention from the very beginning has been to eradicate gender and the differences between the sexes as God created them. Surely even you can see the goal of the Godless in this.
Please provide evidence other than off-beam mad cap conspiracy theories,
(You the same man who said I was wrong when I said the US Doctor wanted to use a drug on Charlie NEVER, ever, used before on a human with the same condition? Points 20 and 21 of the Court Summary alone prove you wrong, as does the full judgement.)
I simply don’t have time to search for a document from the LGBT community showing their deliberate decision to change the language – they are on record as saying (rightly) that nobody is going to support “rights for sodomites” which is why they came up with “gay rights”. But they did. No “theory” about it, conspiracy or otherwise.
Remember, any lawyer will tell you (as did USA attorney Christopher Ferrara in one of his excellent articles) that every time he faces more than one defendant in a murder trial, he is deal with a “conspiracy theory”. He knows there’s been a conspiracy but he needs to break down the belief that the claim is merely a theory – evidence.
If I may add, I just cannot understand why anyone would participate in a blog like this one where they detest us and our beliefs. I occasionally contribute to other blogs but as soon as it becomes clear that they’re on the opposite side of the crisis in the Church, I’m off. I’d say “don’t let’s keep you” but it might seem “unwelcoming” and that is the crime of the century, isn’t it.
I have only commented on some topics, and on this very thread you said to me: “Martin, Well said! ” 11:08 29/7/17
I have corrected some “fake news” being reported here, and you have, wrongly, suggested I have not upheld doctrine, and discipline, but, for example, in every post where I actually mentioned Holy Communion I have upheld what the Church says.
You, for example. said US Courts don’t interfere in relation to children and health care and they do. Not only that the United Nations Convention on The Rights of Children says the Courts must protect voiceless children – even BEFORE birth. Athanasius, and others, asserted the proposed treatment for Charlie Gard had been used before. The official Court Record states the US Doctor acknowledged it hadn’t, and that GOSH had actively looked for alternative treatments in other specialist units, but to no avail.
Being humble, you would surely accept brotherly correction!
“Being humble, you would surely accept brotherly correction”
What a sexist remark!
I don’t have time to answer your claims one by one, as, believe it or not, I have other things to do today, but your claims are mischevious, containing half-truths, at best.
Except, I did say “Well said” on this thread in response to one of your comments so I presume you were agreeing with me 😀
In an earlier post I said “I believe the issues of age of consent, gay marriage, and transgenderism are part of a big picture operation.” That is an active programme of militancy.
However, calling a person who waits on a table in gender neutral terms is not the same thing, at all. By any measure.
I take your point, but it is – whether in a calculated, orchestrated way or not – all part of the same “big picture”.
It’s in the mentality. That’s it. That’s the issue. They don’t have to be explicitly part of the “conspiracy”.
Someone, a few years ago, say running a café, who had no idea whatsoever about “the big picture” but has “got it” in terms of gender neutrality/job equality, decided to introduce -“server” instead of waiter/waitress* – doesn’t mean every individual going along with this is “in” on any conspiracy.
*note: I called out “waitress!” the other day in a restaurant. Shock! Horror! She looked quite pleased, and so did the young man (waiter!) behind the counter… but then I was pointing out that I’d left her a tip “here”, so not sure if she’s a gender neutral rebel or just, like me, always broke.
One thing I have noticed is the gradual supplanting of the gender specific “his” and “hers” with an ungrammatical and clumsy “their” as in “John has finished their breakfast”!! Crazy and yet I bet it will become the norm in a bid to satisfy the so called gender neutral lobby…
We might explain away some of these language changes as nothing more than poor grammar, but that’s now the problem – we don’t know. The nonsense of changing language to suit PC agendas has gone way too far.
Maybe they should take a lesson from Irving Berlin (listen very carefully to the lyrics and you’ll understand why):
I would like someone to produce a short leaflet on the evils of the trans agenda. Something that looks like one of those 20p CTS leaflets, a basic summary of how evil it is and how erroneous an idea this whole gender theory business is.
There is nothing out there at the moment.
I rang the Catholic Truth Society, Publishers to the Holy See in London, because this is something that they should be doing. We are a very low budget group and simply do not have the resources to publish, advertise and distribute pamphlets. Remember, the so-called Catholic press will not accept our advertisements, anyway, so it is not within our power to do as you so imaginatively suggest.
I explained to the young man on the phone at the CTS that there is no easily accessible information available to show the evil of Transgenderism and that the old 20p CTS pamphlet format is exactly what we need now. I did give credit to our new blogger, your good self, as the person who suggested this, and the young man to whom I spoke, eventually (we had a fairly lengthy discussion) went off to speak to the editor.
She sent back the message that they had nothing in the pipeline just now but if I wanted to email her to discuss it, I could have her email address. I took a note of that, promising to send on links to articles containing the medical facts etc.
Interestingly, the young man to whom I spoke, who was very friendly and helpful, reacted strongly to – as part of my background piece – the idea that the new Mass had Protestantised Catholics and so most of them had no idea how to answer the “trans” claims, but, on the contrary, often accepted them. I mentioned also, the fact that the bishops were remaining silent on the issue.
He did suggest promoting Theology of the Body, but I knocked that down, with gusto, which, in fact, is what led into a general discussion on the crisis in the Church and on to the point where I mentioned the Protestantising effect of the new Mass. He insisted that it was wrong – “perhaps heretical” – to refuse to accept Vatican II, so another condensed lecture from my unworthy self on the centrality of Catholic Tradition and our duty to know the Faith from that perspective, ended the telephone chat, because, I insisted, I AM a woman, and thus, I like to have the last word! He had the good grace to laugh and we hung up, even if we’re highly unlikely ever to “hang out” as they say in the good old USA!
So, FRMH, the bottom line is that, possibly around September/October, the CTS will be looking at this and perhaps publishing something on the subject.
In the meantime, I suggest you point everyone you meet to this thread, which will remain open, or accessible via any thread when follows on from it.
The other company that produces these kind of leaflets is osv our Sunday visitor.
Something needs to be done here…. i am tempted to get in on it myself, I have a good leaflet template that I could use because I made a leaflet on Islam some time ago. I just need Almighty God to grant me the time to do this.
The thing about a leaflet is obviously having a good structure and pitching a few simple arguments well, we also have to know our audience… I think the general thrust should be ‘what is the Catholic response to transgender ideology?’
“I just need Almighty God to grant me the time to do this”
What! Are you nearing your 100th birthday or something?
Seriously, it would be great if you could put something together on this. You could use the facts in the blog introductory report to get started, and I will post more here. Then, if you wish my “editorial” help in any way, I am at your service. You can contact me on email@example.com
I absolutely agree that you should keep the information to a minimum – the key facts to combat the propaganda, remembering that the target audience is spiritually, religiously and morally impoverished Catholics who don’t know their arm from their elbow in theological terms.
While you’re writing up that pamphlet on transgenderism, I’ll do mine on charity … 😀
I think the Sunday Visitor contains a lot of doubtful stuff. They have a leaflet that goes into parishes and I think it is dodgy, so they’re never going to publish the correct information about transgenderism. I’m sure they would consider that to be bigotry and hate speech, LOL!
Hear, hear. Some Catholic literature (not “Catholic” literature) on this is definitely required. There really isn’t anything out there, so it’s time there was something.
I would welcome a short pamphlet with the key medical points bulleted.
After all, it’s because it’s unhealthy for the body and unnatural that it’s wrong. The Church is just reminding us of that fact.
So, roll on the pamphlet!
I am posting this article – with the demo videos – on this thread because it’s content is extremely useful and interesting in helping to develop our critical faculty and not believing everything and anything that comes to us via the broadcasting media. Seeing, you will discover, is not always believing…
What you will read/see in this report, applies as much to this topic as it does to every other topic.
Few mention the abnormally high suicide rate of those who have surgery on their bodies in order to resemble a member of the opposite sex https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/gender-confused-suicide-rate-ten-times-national-average and also those who realised they made a mistake once they had done so: http://www.sexchangeregret.com Walt Heyer who runs that website was a darling of the so-called ‘LGBT’ movement, until he made a free choice to reverse the surgery, now he is vilified by them. Which just shows you how ‘liberal’ and ‘tolerant’ the ‘LGBT’ brigade are.
Thanks for those great links. I’m going to read them over and over. We do need to know the facts to talk about this.
I think the idea from Frmh of a pamphlet is fantastic, as well.
The problem with the suicide rate is that the propaganda merchants claim that it’s the “transphobia” and the bullying that cause the suicides. I don’t think we can win on this one, it’s exactly what they say about the homosexual suicides.
Ben Shapiro shows that the high suicide rate among transgenders cannot be blamed on society.
I don’t think that’s true. I read once – and I’ll see if I can find the link – that even in liberal Scandinavian countries where there has long been a very relaxed attitude to ‘LGBT issues’, the suicide rate was still higher among ‘LGBT’ people. Even if there is no external conflict (i.e. bullying, etc) the disorder and internal conflict is always there.
I think you misunderstood what I was saying, what Ben says in the video. He says what you have just said, that the LGBT suicide rate is higher than the rest of the population even where LGBT rights are accepted.
I was responding to Margaret Mary’s post of 31 July at 8.09 pm (above). I haven’t seen the Ben Shapiro video yet – look forward to watching it – hence the confusion!
Gender Identity Confusion: Those Whom the gods Would Destroy, They First Make Mad
This is my new parish priest! And what a wonderfully wise priest he is…..
Here is a page from Our Sunday Visitor, cited above, that includes a couple of articles on gender (NB: I did not read them, can’t vouch for their fidelity). https://osv.com/TodaysIssues/HumanDignityandSexuality.aspx
I had a look at two of those articles which related to transgenderism, and they were both OK.
Look at this from the TIE-Campaign* website.
(*A trade-union funded pressure group demanding the Scottish Government introduce mandatory lessons about vaguely defined “LGBT issues” in Scotland schools).
Here they chart a “transition”, the story of a young women who would have us believe she is turning into a man.
In this installment, the young lady reveals she knows another young lady who claims to be undergoing the same fantastical journey in defiance of human biology.
What is remarkable (even by ‘LGBT’ standards) is the fact that – in their bogus male guises – they have a homosexual relationship together, referring to the other as a “boyfriend”.
And the website promoting this belongs to the group which the Scottish Government consults with, regarding the content of the Scottish curriculum.
It’s really “through the looking glass” stuff isn’t it?
Hilariously, the article calls for “understanding” that “transitioning” is “not easy”. Not easy? it is in fact impossible. But if they want to know what is “not easy”, I would suggest living in a society where this kind of madness is promoted and there is demonisation of those thinkers who will not swallow the pill.
I read the “tips” article – nothing short of hilarious. The website itself is a cause for concern. The Scottish Government is presiding over a massive decline in educational standards in Scottish schools and no wonder, if this is their main preoccupation – making the LGBT alleged “community” feel better about themselves.
Yes the “tips” were indeed hilarious!
If the persons concerned are so keen to disguise themselves, I’m tempted to ask why don’t they just put a bag over their head (with eye holes etc, of course).
Here is an article tracing the carefully planned advance of the LGBT agenda in America, including the extensive citation of a well-known 1989 book laying out the LGBT strategy and script: Marshall Kirk and Hunter Madsen, After the Ball: How America Will Conquer Its Fear and Hatred of Gays in the 90’s.
Many thanks for posting that excellent link – the equivalent of saying “shut up you fool” to those useful idiots who think that claims of a planned strategy by the homosexual lobby is nothing more than a “conspiracy theory”. Otherwise know as the Brainless Blokes and Bloke-esses Brigade…
The medical establishment, not so long ago, used to call gender identity confusion a mental illness. I worked in the field and I cannot believe the baloney being peddled about this matter. If you’re born with the chromsomes xy you’re male. If you’re born with xx you’re female. End of. Now I have seen cases of deformed genes whereby the gender of the baby is not definite one way or the other, but this is rare. I’ve also seen babies born with “doubtful” genatalia and, unfortunately in the past some doctors did “decide” on which gender was the most probable, and all this without tests.
However, what we are experiencing now is an onslaught of orchestrated deformation of the human person. It is all part of a diabolical agenda which unfortunately has rather a lot of useful idiots to promote its cause. I believe that the aim is the total destruction of the family unit as we know it.
Many thanks for that very informative post – much appreciated.
“Onslaught” is the word, for sure. The entire transgender propaganda machine is in overdrive right now. It’s actually quite frightening for those given over to being frightened. Better to stick with the old motto “Don’t get mad, get even” so… 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀
This transgendering of children in Catholic schools and elsewhere is mushrooming out of control.
There is an online petition against the Catholic Diocese in Missouri as they have a policy of admitting same sex families and transgender children to their Catholic schools. I am sure readers would like to sign this petition. We have to use all means possible we can to stop this diabolical agenda.
TFP quotes “This policy is uncharitable to Catholic students, their parents, and even to the unfortunate students who call themselves “transgender,” as it helps normalize behaviour that offends God – the sinful rejection of His loving and natural plan: “male and female he created them” (Gen. 1:27).
I used to comment here under the user name Miles Immaculata. I don’t know why the people here have so much anger and hatred towards gender and sexual minorities. I was angry once, but this was because I hated myself. I am transgender and I have begun the difficult but exciting journey of transition. When I was a teenager I didn’t know about trans people, so I am pleased that young people today are growing up in a more loving a tolerant society. I thought I was gay, but this identity never felt right with me. All along I was actually female. Since leaving the church I have found that people are so loving and accepting of me, and I have actually managed to raise the funds to pay for the various procedures I need [details removed by editor.]
I’m afraid it’s psychiatric help you need, not surgery!
The best thing I did for my mental health was taking time out from religion.
And take it from me, Miles, it didn’t do religion any harm either…
My first reaction to reading your comment is that you are having us on; your previous attention-seeking visit was to “out” yourself as a “gay” man and, at that time, we gave you plenty of attention in an effort to help straighten out your head. Now that it’s more than your head needing help, we’re out of our depth, so forgive me if I don’t fall over backwards in distress at your latest “identity” decision; there’s just nothing we can do to help.
As for “hatred” – you know perfectly well that there’s no hatred here. “Anger” yes, of course. Because, but for these LGBTUVWXYZ issues, I could be out there enjoying the Scottish rain. You may be surprised to learn, Rach/Miles, that my umbrella is undergoing an identity crisis, and is threatening to make all necessary moves (visit to local seamstress) to become a raincoat, because, for some months now, I’ve been wearing my rain-jacket with hood to save carrying a brolly about the place with me. So, I’ve got my own identity issues to deal with. You coming on here and telling us you’ve advanced from being merely “gay” to being utterly hilarious, is complicating my life… can’t you see that?
Seriously, Petrus is not being facetious when he advocates psychiatric help. This transitioning from one gender to another is definitely rooted in, and/or is a manifestation of, mental illness. Here’s a clip from the American commentator, Ben Shapiro on the subject. Hear him out, Rach/Miles, and think seriously about the facts being offered to those poor souls intent on mutilating their bodies and note: those (many) who have regretted their surgery cannot undo it; there’s no going back. And if that’s doesn’t work, let me assure you that it’s no walk-in-the-park being a girl… there’s naughty men on every park bench wolf-whistling and unless you give up chocolate altogether, it’s no time at all until you just CAN’T get into a size 10. It’s a man’s world, Rach/Miles. Don’t be a mad fool, stick with it… 😀
I’m betting on it, Rach/Miles, that after watching Ben in the above video, very proud of his religious identity as a Jew, that you will be racing to the nearest synagogue to arrange to take instructions on Judaism! Just remember, you’d need to learn Hebrew, and I seem to recall you had a bit of an issue with Latin, so don’t go rushing into anything, Rach/Miles 😀
Editor, you have always made me laugh.
You are indeed a poor soul, I’ll pray for you.
In the meantime, here’s God’s view of homosexual practice spoken through the mouth of St. Paul in Romans 1:24-27:
“Wherefore God gave them up to the desires of their heart, unto uncleanness, to dishonour their own bodies among themselves. Who changed the truth of God into a lie; and worshipped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
For this cause God delivered them up to shameful affections. For their women have changed the natural use into that use which is against nature. And, in like manner, the men also, leaving the natural use of the women, have burned in their lusts one towards another, men with men working that which is filthy, and receiving in themselves the recompense which was due to their error…”
But then you probably know God’s view already through the Scriptural account of the destruction of Sodom. You have simply chosen to turn from God to serve the flesh and you will never find true happiness in that choice, the conscience will always be there to remind you of who you are and what you’ve done. You’ve not made yourself free by your choice, as you think, you’ve simply bound yourself up with the chains of impure vice. Turn back to Our Lady before it’s too late!
I have an icon of Our Lady in my bedroom and I pray the rosary, so I wouldn’t worry about my soul. If I am wrong, I am sure Our Lady will save me.
I do not understand why Catholics are getting so wound up about an issue that affects such a tiny number of people. I do not know any transgender people, even though I have quite a progressive social milieu. Transgenderism is extremely rare.
What is really dangerous for people’s soul is getting caught up in culture war polemics and becomes bitter and angry. This way one looses sight of what is really important in our faith… Christ, the gospels etc.. Unless one has a child who is affected my this issue, I just simply don’t understand why traditional/conservative Catholics are so angry about this.
If so-called ‘transgenderism’ is extremely rare, why is it being rammed down our throats morning, noon and night, as though everyone and his (or her) dog wanted to ‘change sex’?
You do not know any ‘transgender’ people, but for the record, previous work I did brought me into very regular contact with two men who had both undergone surgery to resemble a member of the opposite sex. I don’t think I have ever met two more damaged and screwed up people in all my life. I felt very sorry for them. Please read this site http://www.sexchangeregret.com Also, keep praying the rosary by all means, but don’t fall into the sin of presumption. Our Lady will not blithely save those who deliberately and obstinately transgress the laws of God.
Before you destroy yourself completely – because you have adopted the utter depravity of the world – I urge you to stop trying to figure out your “identity,” and start praying for the grace to know, love and serve God with your whole heart, mind and soul.
There is no such thing as a “homosexual identity” ; neither is there any such thing as a “transgender” identity – because there is no such thing as defining yourself through the activities of the flesh. How will you define yourself when your flesh returns to earth, and becomes dust?
Perhaps you should also meditate on this passage from the Last Gospel , as read at the end of every Traditional Mass:
“He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, he gave them power to be made the sons of God, to them that believe in his name. Who are born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.“
I agree with evrything you say on a supernatural level, but would argue that these so-called transgender people cannot even get off the hook on a biological level. They are what they were born, which is perfectly evident to all even on the physiological level. They are what God Created them in nature, not what their delusion tells them they should have been. The world has gone completely bonkers!!
Agreed. I also wonder, sometimes, whether these people would rather not have been born! I keep thinking of the words of Our Lord regarding Judas: “…it were better for him, if that man had not been born.”
This morning I watched Victoria Derbyshire on BBC News 24. I discovered for two years they have followed two transgender children: “Lily” and “Jessica”. It seems that the mother of Jessica is in a Lesbian relationship with someone who for 18 months, has been transitioning to become a man. Clearly, “Jessica” is raised in an household where her views matter, and she can freely make her own choices free from other influences. Why is anyone here complaining?
(“Lily” has been transitioning from the age of 9.)
Why do you think we would disapprove?
I think you should see I am being a bit of a Devils Advocate. A child raised by two women, in a relationship, and one of the women wants to be a man. Clearly “Jessica” is not being unduly led, or influenced, by the well rounded adults raising her!
Do you approve, Martin? Are they doing the right thing by not “unduly influencing” the child?
If you can’t see the problems in that household then it is good you are of independent means, or self employed.
However,whereas I would want the state to intervene to save her…
“I would want the state to intervene to save her…”
LOL! It’s the state making it easy for people to become transgender and making it a hate crime to complain! So, if you ask the state to intervene to prevent her from transgendering, you’ll likely end up in jail – LOL!
“In a report of September 2016, Wilton Park (an executive agency of the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office) branded religion an enemy of LGBTI rights, and called for state funding to reinterpret the Bible to make it compatible with LGBTI ideology. It further called for the new belief system to be required teaching in all churches, Sunday schools and theological seminaries, highlighting Evangelical Christians as being especially prejudiced against homosexuality. It accused them of disseminating hatred and intolerance, seen especially in the pernicious influence of missionaries working in the Global South. ”
I’ve just signed this petition against the suppression of Christian belief, and recommend it to all our bloggers and readers.
Note: it speaks volumes that Evangelical Christians are identifiable as speaking out/preaching more openly against the evils of the LGTBT etc agenda. That is a rebuke in itself, to Catholics everywhere and at every level within the Church. “The Third Secret of Fatima reveals that the crisis in the Church, begins at the top.” Cardinal Ciappi, chaplain to five modern popes.
Moving on – just in case you think the advocates of the LGBT agenda are entitled to a rest…
Note: this is a step in the direction of legalising paedophilia, so I, for one, refuse to use the “pedosexual” label, suggesting that the LGBT brigade are only welcoming those with a tendency to the attraction towards children. This is the beginning of the recognition of “paedophile rights” make no mistake about it. Utterly evil. Anyone with this “attraction” should keep it to themselves, pray and fast – not join a support group full of people with the same sick attraction, for heaven’s sake.
Sometimes one just wants to put ones head in ones hands and weep or even howl! This article made me feel like that. Despair that people could even consider that paedophilia is fine and just another minority’s interest to be protected or even celebrated. As you say completely evil. Pandora’s box is wide open now…
I agree totally. It’s evil in the extreme. Nobody in the hierarchy is saying a word! How are we to understand this, except as a dereliction of duty?
Catholics must fight transgenderism! Would someone mind telling Pope Francis that? http://www.fatimaperspectives.com/fe/perspective1066.asp
I have just read that article by Chris Ferrara and it is devastating. Yes, you are right, somebody should tell the pope to fight transgenderism and not be hooked, line and sinker as Chris Ferrara says, by a silly journalist looking for a headline.
I really is demoralising to witness what is going on right now in the Church, which has become a laughing stock.
Also, I know he’s a C of E vicar, but the Rev Richard Coles is to be a celebrity contestant on Strictly Come Dancing. I don’t know if any of you eve see that show but there is a lot of suggestive dancing and he will have to take part. I wonder how long before there will be a Catholic priest on this show (which I’ve not seen for a long time, but it won’t have become more pure, I’m sure of it, LOL!) All in all, Christianity is not being taken seriously and no wonder.
This morning Sky News had a short debate on the news that a parent in a Church of England school have withdrawn their sons, over this issue, and will now home-school. Takes a non-Catholic family to act. Click here to read The Telegraph report.
The Sky News debate revealed that there are other parents and teachers who are not happy with this transgender policy which has seen one of the boys wearing a skirt – but they are afraid to speak out for fear of accusations of transphobia or bullying. Andrea Williams of Christian Concern was featured in the debate and she was very good indeed.
This transgenderism propaganda is a direct attack on humanity; things have gotten to the stage where, having tolerated unnatural sexual activity and even legalised it, there’s nowhere else to go except to attack the most fundamental principle of all – that God created us men and women.
I’ve just emailed Sky – at firstname.lastname@example.org and hope others will do so as well. Doesn’t matter that you missed the debate – they are talking about it all day and they called for more input about the issue. They read out some emails, texts and Twitter input, but even if our messages are not aired, someone has read them and that is important. I forwarded my email to Christian Concern for their information and encouragement at email@example.com so recommend that you do the same, if possible.
My email follows:
This propaganda drive to “educate” pupils about transgenderism in schools is a direct attack on our fundamental humanity – that we are created men and women.
But it is hardly surprising: having brainwashed society into accepting, as normal, unnatural sexual activity, even legalising it to the point where two men or two women can “marry” each other, there is nowhere else to go but to attack, directly (and with venom) the basic principle of our existence – that we are either male or female. Anyone who is so confused as to not know whether they are a man or a woman needs help, not “acceptance”. Clearly they are suffering from mental health issues.
We have moved from relativism to nihilism – the inability to tell right from wrong. Nowhere is that more evident than in the pushing of transgender propaganda in schools. Andrea Williams of Christian Concern spoke for millions of people this morning in the Sky debate on the subject. Her assertion that most right-thinking people are afraid to speak out for fear of being labelled “transphobic” or “bigots” strikes a very loud chord.
That’s great that some parents are suing their school over this. It’s about time the parents showed some backbone.
It’s a pity there’s no Catholic organisation like Christian Concern to fund legal cases for Catholics – that might help motivate parents of kids in Catholic schools who are so docile, accepting “safe spaces” for gay pupils and I’m sure they’d accept gender neutral uniforms and toilets as well. So much for being a soldier of Christ.
That’s terrible. That mother is being very foolish. She’s obviously part of the lobby, notice how she says her daughter was not happy with her “assigned gender” as if nurses look at newborns and think “I’ll assign this one as a girl/boy”. This whole movement is sick, IMHO.
As expected another “Catholic” school “Sacred Heart” High school, Hammersmith is embracing this transgender ideology
the exact words of the headteacher:
“…..In recognising Jesus as our teacher through the Gospels, the first impulse for us as a Catholic school must be to promote greater wholeness for transgender individuals by listening, caring, supporting and offering community. This means at a minimum, offering very basic gestures of welcoming respect, such as using the young person’s preferred pronoun and addressing them with their preferred name, recognizing their intent to live as the person they believe God created them to be, and refraining from any judgement.
Moral principles do not depend on a majority vote. Wrong is wrong, even if everybody is wrong. Right is right, even if nobody is right.
Fulton J. Sheen
Shocking. Totally shocking.
This “transgender” stupidity is like a disease sweeping through a town. It’s incredible in its suddenness and the speed with which it is spreading.
Any school which would “embrace” this ideology is about as Catholic as bottle of Irn Bru.
This seems to be a more deadly version of the plague that swept through Europe in the 14th century, except that instead of destroying the body, it destroys the mind and the soul.
It really is a deadly weapon and here’s a paediatrician calling it child abuse – note: I had to go to the USA for a TV news clip on the subject. Here in the UK, it’s treated as normal – not up for debate…
My friend Tucker Carlson begs to differ…
More evidence of which we already know what is going on in our schools alongside Transgendering of our children. Leaked document!
Back to work with more prayer AND action
Onward Christian soldiers
How strange that someone would leak a document relating to the Church in England and Wales, to an American organisation. Really odd.
I don’t know anyone who visits that website any more after the Voris attacks on and falsehoods about the SSPX and other traditional groups, including The Remnant. I stopped taking his videos by email, and never visit his site, don’t know anyone else who does either. So after reading the opening paragraph of your link, I withdrew. Not sure this is actually “news” anyway – we’ve reported the UK bishops’ support for the LGBT agenda many times, including recent blog posts and our current newsletter.
Please sign the Petition to Cardinal Nichols to stop the Transgender Policy at Sacred Heart High School, Hammersmith, London, which is in his Diocese
Please forward on to all your contacts
I WILL sign but it will not make a blind bit of difference to Cardinal Nichols. I say of him what I said of Cardinal Keith Patrick O’Brien (Edinburgh) YEARS before he resigned office in disgrace: there has to be a reason why a prelate of the Church is so far away from the truths of the Faith and natural morality.
Go – as our American bloggers would say – figure!
