Catholic Church study says current gender theories 'move away from nature'

Pope Francis walks in St. Peter's Square after celebrating a Pentecost Mass on June 9

CitizenGO, a conservative Madrid-based group that campaigns around the world, called the latest church teaching an "extraordinary guidebook".

"'The document provides little by way of practical information for schools and families, many of whom are already working successfully and in collaboration with representative organisations such as TENI and BeLongTo, to create safe, supportive and welcoming learning environments for trans and gender variant young people to grow and flourish in education".

Amid its 30-page criticism of gender theory, the document claims that transgender identity is "nothing more than a confused concept of freedom in the realm of feelings and wants, or momentary desires provoked by emotional impulses and the will of the individual".

The document insisted that modern gender ideology and the idea that one chooses or discovers his or her gender go against nature by arguing that "the only thing that matters in personal relationships is the affection between the individuals involved, irrespective of sexual difference or procreation, which would be seen as irrelevant in the formation of families".

"By ignoring recent scientific understandings of gender identity, and by refusing to prefer in dialogue with LGBT of us about their lived experiences of self-determining and religion, the Vatican remains at nighttime ages, selling a unsuitable teaching that depends on delusion, rumor, and falsehoods." writes Francis DeBernardo, the manager director of New Ways Ministry, an advocacy neighborhood for LGBTQ Catholics.


It says fresh theories "transfer away from nature" and as a replacement "against an absolute choice for the resolution of the feelings of the human arena".

It denounced theories that attempted to "annihilate the concept of nature" and "educational programs and legislative trends that. make a radical break with the actual biological difference between male and female". This helps us understand "why the data of biological and medical science shows that "sexual dimorphism" can be proved by science, as, for example, by the study of chromosomes.

Proposing a Christian anthropologyThe third main section of the document offers the proposal that comes from Christian anthropology. It called the guidance, Male And Female He Created Them. "This has particular importance for the question of sexual difference".

Schools, for their part, are called to engage with the family in a subsidiary way, and to dialogue with parents, respecting also the family's culture.

A "democratic state can not reduce the range of education on offer to a single school of thought, all the more so in relation to this extremely delicate subject, which is concerned on the one hand with the fundamentals of human nature, and on the other with natural rights of parents to freely choose any educational model that accords with the dignity of the human person".
