Vatican issues guidance questioning modern gender identity

10 June 2019

The Vatican has released a new document challenging modern conceptions of gender identity.

The 31-page teaching guidance, released on Monday, is titled Male and Female He Created Them.

It speaks of an "educational crisis" and says the current debate can "annihilate the concept of nature" and destabilise the family institution.

The document, released during Pride month, has drawn immediate criticism from LGBT groups.

It was issued by the Congregation for Catholic Education as teaching instruction to those who work with children.

1. And the RCC Takes Two Steps Backward

Way to go, Papa! Way to go! Retreat and retrench.

2. Wonderpope Frank himself compared gender identity to nuclear war.

Can anyone be legitimately surprised by this?

3. Can't wait to hear people tell me how wonderful and progressive this guy is.

Anybody who has paid any attention to the RCC at all, knew what we were getting with this new pope. Everyone that really wants the RCC to be a force for good fell for the PR.

THIS is what the current pope stand for. And the next one. And the next one. And the next one. It's high time this organization went to the dustbin of history.

4. 'He' doesn't exist. Problem solved. If 'he' has a problem with it, 'he' can take it up with me.

7. How "cautious" is our "optimism" these days?

The "I will praise him when he's right and criticize him when he's wrong" types have been curiously silent as of late, but that may or may not be due to them having been banhammered for bad behavior.

9. You just don't understand

Pope Frank said something nice to a gay man once (allegedly in private), so that means the entire organization is moving in the right direction.

Who knows, maybe in another two thousand years the RCC might finally evolve on this subject.

8. An organization that engages in a conspiracy of child rape trying to preach morals to everyone else

I suppose when you have an army of child rape apologists, you can get away with such things without too many people calling bullshit.
