Pope Francis says transgender children are a sin against God the Creator

Children who are taught to love themselves, and accept those who are different are so much more likely not to commit violent acts or kill themselves. There is no exception to this, gender diverse children and peers included.

Pope Francis, the man who many short-sighted people like to refer to as the ‘progressive’ Pope has once again demonstrated that he is not a friend to the LGBT+ community.

During a closed-door meeting with bishops in Poland last week the Pope has spoken out against the transgender community according to transcripts of the conversation released by the Catholic church.  The Pope has complained that children are being taught that gender is a spectrum rather than a binary.

‘Today in schools they are teaching this to children – to children! – that everyone can choose their gender.’  He complained, according to the transcript.

Pope Francis condemned the increased visibility of trans people on ‘ideological colonizing’ by textbooks ‘financed by wealthy people and institutions in very influential countries’.  He even went so far as to say that the acceptance of the transgender community to be a ‘terrible’ thing.

In a wide-ranging address to Polish Bishops, the Pope talked about the “Annihilation of man” in refernce to refuge seekers, segueing to what he considers the reason for the demise of humankind, teaching children that their gender diversity is natural and god given..The full transcript can be read HERE

He even quoted his predecessor Pope Benedict, ‘Speaking with Pope Benedict, who is well and clear in his mind, he was telling me, ‘Holiness, this is the epoch of sin against God the Creator, he’s intelligent!  God created man and woman, God created the world this way, this way, this way, and we are doing the opposite’.’

The comments made by Pope Francis have been heavily condemned by members of the LGBT+ community.
