SNP: Gender Recognition Bill Passed in Scottish Parliament – Nicola Sturgeon, Shame on YOU!

SNP: Gender Recognition Bill Passed in Scottish Parliament – Nicola Sturgeon, Shame on YOU!

From the Daily Record…

The Gender Recognition Reform (GRR) Bill cleared its last legislative hurdle after three days of gruelling debate at the Scottish Parliament.

As MSPs voted by 86 votes to 39 in favour shouts of “shame on you” could be heard from the public gallery.

But there was also applause from supporters of the reforms – which will remove the need for a medical diagnosis of gender dysphoria before obtaining of a gender recognition certificate (GRC).

The changes will also drop the minimum age for applying for such a certificate from 18 to 16, and bring down the time a person is required to live in their acquired gender.

Opponents of the Bill have said it could endanger women and girls and put single-sex spaces at risk, something the Scottish Government has repeatedly denied.

Nine SNP MSPs defied Nicola Sturgeon to vote against the legislation.

The First Minister had earlier defended the reforms and claimed the bill may be the “most scrutinised piece of legislation” in Holyrood’s history.

And she insisted the removing of the need for medical diagnosis for those who want to legally change their gender was one of the Bill’s key elements.

“I will never apologise for trying to spread equality, not reduce it, in our country,” she said.

Shona Robison, the social justice secretary, said it was an “historic day” after MSPs voted in favour of the legislation.

“It simplifies and improves the process for a trans person to obtain a gender recognition certificate – which many currently find intrusive, medicalised and bureaucratic,” she said.

“The legislation makes no change to the reserved Equality Act 2010 and that principle is enshrined in the Bill. As I have made clear, the Scottish Government continues to support the provision of single-sex services and the rights of women.

“The passing of this bill is a significant step forward in creating a more equal Scotland, where trans people feel valued, included and empowered.”

The debates this week have been marred by protests from the public gallery which saw some individuals shout “shame on you” at MSPs.

It came after another amendment that would make it harder for sex offenders to apply for a GRC was voted down. While outside the parliament building women against the Bill held a protest both days MSPs were debating.

Ahead of the debate the Scottish Tories attempted to delay proceedings by tabling four amendments to the agenda from four members, forcing a vote on the timetable for the consideration of amendments, raising a further motion which MSPs had to vote on and a number of points of order – all before the debate on the amendments had started.

The party also opted to push amendments to a vote, even when the proposer of the changes did not.

MSPs backed a change tabled by SNP MSP Gillian Martin to the law which means anyone subject to a sexual harm prevention order or sexual offences prevention order will not be allowed to seek a GRC.   Source…

It’s difficult to imagine that the SNP could sink much lower than this immoral legislation.  But, where is the outcry from Catholics – bishops, priests, laity? And, whatever happened to “follow the science”? Your thoughts…

    Dear Friends

    This vote today is the continuation of a diabolically infected legislative cultural process that further diminishes the divinely ordained anthropological dignity of the human person as imago dei male and female.

    Our present culture and parliament are promoters and cheerleader of evil whether in terms of gender ideologies, abortion and so on.

    It is no surprise that the children of the evil one will be rejoicing and celebrating in this perverse piece of legislation.

    Regarding the Church and all it’s constituent members, the silence is deafening beyond belief. However, they will answer to God for this cowardice in the face of such evil.

    We really are in a totally irreligious country and world, where humanity’s. Original Sin is now our dominant mantra- that we to have now become God knowing good and evil.

    Such a mentality encouraged and emboldened by the evil one are the seeds of our own natural and supernatural destruction.

    We are in the depths of moral depravity in this country and and God have mercy on us for another vile act in a litany of vile acts over the course of many years in our society.

    Or Lady of Fatima pray for us

    Every blessing

      Michael,

      I totally agree. What worries me about this new low, is that there will be children at risk, e.g. in public toilets, in a way they never were before.

      Dave Wootton on GB News calls her Scheming Sturgeon, but she could be equally called Sly Sturgeon or Slippery Sturgeon – I couldn’t trust her to run a bath, never mind the country.

        I completely agree.

        The Devil is ploughing through this world corrupting the youth through the perverse woke ideologies under the guise of compassion, tolerance etc.

        l truly fear for young people especially today in this irreligious world. They are surrounded by so much invective regarding God, Faith etc

        They are fertile territory for this diabolically inspired evil and filth. The Devil is a master strategist when it comes to harvesting human souls.

        Through his cohorts in this life he will reap a terrible harvest.

        God help us

        Every blessing

    ED I stand by what I said of Sturgeon in another Topic the Woman is Evil ,Pure Evil. That Sturgeon is a Champion for the Queers in Society is no surprise when one looks at this Wummin what a terrible excuse for a so called Political Leader of a Country. Queers and Reprobates first and the rest of us bringing up the rear. She is a disgrace to the goodness of Humanity and how many Boys and Girls will be left with Amputations they really did not want in their 20s and 30s .
    100 . 1000 . 10.000 or more your guess is as good as mine and I stand by what I said earlier. Queers of all Kinds keep your distance from Me and My Granddaughters. As for our Useless Bishops their too busy licking Sturgeons Boots .
    At least Our Good Priest condemned the General Absolution by Bish Toal in the Motherwell Diocese.

      You are lucky to have a priest who would speak out like that against General Absolution. God will bless him for his courage.

    What I want to know is the result of the so-called Consultation where we were all encouraged to fill out the form – Sturgeon mentioned the consultation in Parliament, as part of her preparation work for this legislation but I’ve never heard what the results of that consultation was. We know that the result of the TWO consultations on same-sex marriage were a large majority against it but she ploughed ahead anyway with the legislation. It’ll be exactly the same in this case.

    Here is Joanna Cherry, a Westminster SNP MP, who is speaking out against the forcing of this legislation. She says other SNP members are afraid to speak out. Sturgeon is a real bully IMHO.

      Margaret Mary,

      Thanks for posting that video of Joanna Cherry MP – she has restored my faith a bit, she obviously has some integrity as it’s not easy to stand up against Sturgeon. I think she could be quite vindictive, just watching her from a distance over time. She is a calculating woman, and needs a lot of prayers to get her mind right thinking. She thinks this trans law will guarantee her a place in the history books and it will, but not in the way she thinks.

    Sister Lucia warned Cardinal Caffarra that “A time will come when the decisive battle between the kingdom of Christ and Satan will be over marriage and the family.” Of course, this bill adversely affects true marriage and the family, so the prophecy of Sister Lucia is being fulfilled before our eyes https://aleteia.org/2017/05/19/exclusive-cardinal-caffarra-what-sr-lucia-wrote-to-me-is-being-fulfilled-today Heaven help us.

      WF,

      I remember that statement from Cardinal Caffarra – it is chilling to think that what is happening now with this evil legislation will directly impact the family. This is just the latest attack on the family and it won’t be the last. Now, parents can’t be certain that their sons will stay as sons and their daughters will stay as daughters, not with the evil influencers trying to encourage them to transition. It’s diabolical.

        Lily,
        The tragic part is that research has shown that many children who want to ‘transition’ actually suffer from autism or Asperger’s Syndrome, and because they often feel ‘different’ in their minds, when they are subjected to ‘trans’ propaganda, they assume that this is the problem and that a ‘change of sex’ will be the answer. Sadly, it isn’t. The rate of suicide among those who have ‘transitioned’ is massively disproportionate compared to the average population. And the LGBT campaigners explain this away by saying increased suicide is because they are victims of ‘hate crimes’ or ‘lack of acceptance’. It’s just not true. If ever there were a more protected / accepted group in society, it’s the LGBT brigade. Walt Heyer’s website has become more important than ever now http://www.sexchangeregret.com

        I’ve not had time to check this, but rumour has it that this awful Gender Bill might be halted because the Westminster Parliament can over-rule it if it clashes with laws already in place UK-wide. That would be a corker. Here’s hoping!

        PM Sunak could block it, but I bet he won’t, as the Tories seem to be in thrall to the LGBT brigade – or running scared of them (who isn’t these days? I read that even Trump threw an LGBT gala recently). I also read this morning that Keir Starmer will support Sturgeon’s stance, should Labour get in: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11570689/Labour-war-Scotlands-new-law-changing-gender.html

    This is absolutely scandalous. I am in despair over this Scottish parliament. Lives are going to be ruined because of this – kids of 16 can go and have their birth certificate changed and pretend they are the opposite sex on a whim. Thinking of how confused kids are these days, rudderless, without leadership, as I say, there will be ruined lives as a result of this legislation. On Sturgeon’s head be it. Evil is the word.

      Michaela,

      Remember solve et coagula? It seems we are still in the solve stage with this latest state enforcement of perversion. The coagula that comes after this will certainly be a police state with a social credit system like Communist China – already praised by Klaus Schwab and even Abp. Sorondo, Chancellor of the Pontifical Academy of Science and also the Pontifical Academy of Social Science, in 2018. This tells you exactly where this pontificate’s loyalties are, and they certainly aren’t with the Church and the Faith:

    Am like most on here in the Winter of my Life but al tell you something we would Never, Ever have put up with this Queer Garbage when i was Young . Fair enough you probably had the 1% but now its the fashion to be Queer, and Sturgeon knows it as am sure there is a question mark over Her . We all know that youngsters are easy Meat, the Epstein Express showed that, and at least WE on here know that is what the Drag Story Tellers Etc are after . Easy pickings among the Young .

      FOOF,

      I completely agree about the young being easy pickings. She knows that, she knows that they can be worked up about independence, young people love a cause, so wants them to have the vote for that, and now this nonsense about changing their sex. It’s taking advantage of young people with mental health problems, in my book. She is a total disgrace, Sturgeon, without a conscience, for sure.

        Sturgeon is a Godless Evil Wummin and certainly a Megalomaniac . Why do 98% of the Population have to agree and pander to 2 % obviously of whom many are in that awful Scottish Parliament. BTW on a Debate on the now overwhelming dead and injured due to the Mengele Injections not ONE S.N.P. MP bothered to turn up . Fact . There are more Deaths now from these Injections than Covid yet Nothing is said. No debate there in that useless Scottish Parliament.

    “Law without a foundation in morality becomes injustice.” wrote Cardinal Robert Sarah in God or Nothing. This is a truth we have witnessed in the recent ludicrous Covid restrictions, vaccination zealots, suppression of free speech and the dictatorial clamour of minority groups who demand their “rights” while bullying and cancelling any dissenters. Sturgeon’s self ID experiment is the latest abomination in our so called “progressive and modern” Scotland, which will bring untold misery to many people, especially the young.
    We need to stand strong and pray more than ever, even if it seems at times we are like John the Baptist crying in the wilderness.
    Ave Maria 🙏 Blessings to all.

      Cardinal Sarah’s quote is so right.

      Rishi Sunak has confirmed, live on TV, that this Gender Recognition nonsense bill could be blocked by Westminster. Here’s hoping, because otherwise it will destroy the lives of so many young people.

      RCA Victor,

      That look like a very interesting read, and I’m not surprised you thought of Sturgeon. This extract is her, down to a tee

      “The radical left’s efforts to regulate the people from cradle to grave. “

      She tried to pass a law to give every child in Scotland – from conception, note, to 18th birthday – a “Named Person”, a state guardian who could over-rule parents and would be the first point of contact for schools and social workers etc – not the parents.

      She is a dictator, no question about it.

    Each country has a Guardian Angel. Pray urgently to the Guardian Angel of Scotland to overcome this evil:

    Prayer to the Guardian Angel of Scotland

    O glorious Guardian Angel of Scotland, to whom God has entrusted the care of our beloved country, we honour you and thank you for the care and protection you have given to this nation from the first moment of its inception.
    O powerful Guardian Angel, whose watchful glance encompasses this land from shore to shore, we know that our sins have grieved our Lord and God and marred the beauty of our heritage. Lead us to a deep conversion, so that we may return to the embrace of His merciful love.
    O Holy Angel, obtain for us through the intercession of the Queen of Heaven before the throne of God, the graces we need to overcome the forces of evil so rampant in our beloved land.
    Help us, our God-given protector and friend, to respond wholeheartedly to the urgent pleas of the Mother of God at Fatima. Assist us to offer the prayers and sacrifices necessary to bring peace and goodness to our nation.
    We want to make you known and loved throughout our land, so that docile to your inspirations, we may know, love and serve our Lord more faithfully, and so become once more, one Nation under God. Amen.
