Vatican City/US - Pope Francis speaks with U.S. bishops on pro-life and transgender issues

Press

Vatican City


please press:  www.americamagazine.org

ezs note:  Oh, Francis.  We must talk.  When Archbishop Carlson was asked about transgender issues, this is what he said:

Asked whether the pope then gave the bishops any advice on how to handle the transgender debate, Archbishop Carlson said the pope touched on the way proponents believe people are "all one and that there's no difference, which would fly in the face of what (St.) John Paul II talked about on complementarity and it would fly in the face of the dignity of the woman and the dignity of the man, that we could just change into whatever we wanted." 

This is akin to casually choosing rice instead of spaghetti in my favorite restaurant,  Ahem... NO, IT'S NOT.  In most states, to have surgery performed, there is a rigorous examination as to whether this person is 'really' transgender.  Am I saying that doctors, psychologists, and surgeons are absolutely perfect?  No, not at all.  But neither are you.

ezs note:  Wow... I must say, I'm certainly impressed.  All these PhDs and shit.  Well, let's take a closer look at Baroness Nicholson of Winterbourne's body of work:  

...the Global Warming Policy Foundation (a climate skeptic think funded primarily by multiple anonymous donors)  http://www.thegwpf.org/who-we-are/board-of-trustees

And if we look down the list a bit, we find this esteemed gentleman:

Sian Hindle, Senior Lecturer, School of Jewellery, Birmingham City University
(emphasis mine)

It's breathtaking, really.  He goes straight from making pretty earrings to mulling the nature of transgender persons.

Right.
