What Pope Francis really said about gender ideology in his encyclical Amoris Laetitia

Amoris Laetitia 56:  Yet another challenge is posed by the various forms of an ideology of gender that “denies the difference and reciprocity in nature of a man and a woman and envisages a society without sexual differences, thereby eliminating the anthropological basis of the family. This ideology leads to educational programs and legislative enactments that promote a personal identity and emotional intimacy radically separated from the biological difference between male and female. Consequently, human identity becomes the choice of the individual, one which can also change over time”. (Relatio Finalis 2015, 8)

  1. If you actually cared about making things better, you would have a) expressed your concerns to the bishop first and b) not be hiding behind an alias.


    1. If we really cared? It’s the Ad Hominem attack again. Publishing his own information is a sign of caring isn’t it? Why do you assume that we didn’t express our concerns to the Bishop? You are buying into the lie that the response to this has been mostly from outside the Diocese. The Chancery staff and Bishop Gaydos made it clear to anyone who asked in the beginning that parents don’t have a right to know and that he didn’t intend to change his mind. People have been expressing their concerns to the Bishop for almosty 20 years and through that time he has earned whatever trust or mistrust he gets from his faithful and clergy. The Chancery staff ought to know by now how very many people don’t trust them to respond to their concerns. You should be able to deduce from all the documentation that even still he doesn’t bother to address himself to parents, his “blue collar” and “mostly rural parishioners.” He addresses himself to the world in a cry for sympathy.
      Would all of this documentation change if there was no alias? No, the truth is the truth. This way is much better, it limits ad hominem attacks like yours and forces our leaders to address the issues presented.
