Catholic Church rejects transgender identity, calls gender change a ‘trend’ in statement

Remember when everyone wanted to call the new pope “the good pope”? Yeah, The whole religion is just rotten.

In its first statement on gender identity, the Vatican on Monday rejected the idea that transgender people can change their gender identity in a document meant to instruct Catholic teachers and students on sexuality and gender.

The document, titled “Male and Female He Created Them,” suggests only men and women are sexually complementary, and that changing norms in gender identity contribute to the “destabilization of the family.”

According to Vatican News, the church’s news platform, the document is intended as “an instrument to help guide Catholic contributions to the ongoing debate about human sexuality.”
