 10 Reasons why transgenderism is the family's worst enemy

What the transgender revolution wants is self-destructive, tyrannical, unscientific, immoral, abusive, and unhealthy. To print this list, click here!

  

1. Transgenderism Is Tyrannical

On May 13, 2016 the Obama administration issued a sweeping diktat, ordering all public schools to allow members of one biological sex to use the showers, locker rooms, and restrooms of the opposite sex. In one fell swoop the federal government imposed transgender bathrooms on all public schools in the nation. States that opposed the measure have been threatened with severe penalties such as the loss of federal funds.

The legitimate concerns of parents for their children were brushed aside. The right to privacy and the importance of guarding our children's innocence were likewise trampled upon. The transgender movement, like Islam, is only satisfied with total submission. Under this new tyranny, schools, universities, businesses and even Churches are no longer free to follow their moral principles. Christian morality is not tolerated.

 

2. It Fuels Child Abuse

Transgenderism is especially harmful to children. According to the American College of Pediatricians, the public promotion of transgenderism constitutes a form of child abuse:

"Conditioning children into believing that a lifetime of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex is normal and healthful is child abuse. Endorsing gender discordance as normal via public education and legal policies will confuse children and parents, leading more children to present [themselves] to 'gender clinics' where they will be given puberty-blocking drugs. This, in turn, virtually ensures that they will 'choose' a lifetime of carcinogenic and otherwise toxic cross-sex hormones, and likely consider unnecessary surgical mutilation of their healthy body parts as young adults."

This form of child abuse must be vigorously opposed.

 

 

3. It Contradicts Biology and Science

Gender ideology contradicts basic biology. The same progressive movement that once worshipped at the secular altar of science, to the exclusion of God and metaphysics, has turned against its own science-is-everything dogma. Now, all scientific evidence that disproves the transgender narrative is discarded.

However, the American College of Pediatricians is clear: "Human sexuality is an objective biological binary trait: 'XY' and 'XX' are genetic markers of health – not genetic markers of a disorder. The norm for human design is to be conceived either male or female. Human sexuality is binary by design with the obvious purpose being the reproduction and flourishing of our species. This principle is self-evident.... Individuals with DSDs [disorders of sex development] do not constitute a third sex."

 

4. Biological Sex Cannot Change

Those who embrace the transgender ideology pretend that men can morph into women or that women can morph into men. But their claim is false.

“It is physiologically impossible to change a person’s sex, since the sex of each individual is encoded in the genes—XX if female, XY if male. Surgery can only create the appearance of the other sex,” explain Dr. Richard P. Fitzgibbons, M.D., Philip M. Sutton, Ph.D., and Dale O’Leary in a well-documented study. These doctors affirm that sexual identity “is written on every cell of the body and can be determined through DNA testing. It cannot be changed."

 

5. It Warps Manhood and Womanhood

Transgender ideology claims that biological reality does not determine one's sex -- feelings do. Therefore, the differences between male and female, much like the clothing we wear, are separate from our identity and are constantly in flux. Manhood and womanhood are mere labels used to describe what we see but lack any substantial basis.

Feminist ideologue, lesbian, and writer Simone de Beauvoir affirmed that "one is not born, but rather becomes, a woman." The whole point of feminism is not so much to eliminate the so-called "oppressive" male class but to abolish every difference between the sexes.

Here we see how the homosexual, transgender, and feminist movements are allied. They share the same final goal: the destruction of male and female, manhood and womanhood.

 

6. It Destroys Reason

A fundamental part of logic and reason is the idea that things have a purpose. The purpose of our eyes, for example, is to provide us with sight. The wings of a bald eagle exist to provide it with flight. Our lungs exist in order for us to breath and absorb oxygen, and our ears exist in order to hear. Likewise, the primary purpose of human sexuality is procreation.

However, transgenderism, like homosexuality and feminism, deny this principle, and therefore attack human reason itself, which is a form of deliberate madness.

  

7. Transgenderism Is Self-Destructive

The homosexual movement shatters lives. Regret, despair, and suicide is common among those who adopt the "T" of the LGBT lifestyle.

Walt Heyer, a man who regrets having lived like a woman for many years, said: "I knew I wasn’t a real woman, no matter what my identification documents said. I had taken extreme steps to resolve my gender conflict, but changing genders hadn’t worked. It was obviously a masquerade."

"Transgenders not only annihilate their birth identity," Heyer explained, "they destroy everyone and everything in their wake: family, wife, children, brothers or sisters, and career. Certainly this demonstrates the behavior of someone hell-bent on total self-destruction and self-harm."

The stress involved with living a lifestyle that violates nature is apparent. According to American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, 41% of those who identify as transgender in America have attempted to commit suicide. That's twenty-five times higher than the national average.

 

8. Where Will Transgenderism Lead Us: Trans-Species

If a man can pretend to be a woman, why can’t he also claim to be non-human? Such a relativistic conclusion is regretfully here: it's called trans-species -- also know as furries or otherkins. People with Species Identity Disorder consider themselves non-human and are featured at homosexual parades. The arguments used by the trans-species movement to question their human status are essentially the same as those of the transgender movement.

When feelings replace reality, logic dies. The intellect, the highest part of man, is degraded. The animal rules. And our Godless culture pressures us to play along with these depraved fantasies.

Once these disorders are regarded as normal, what can possibly resist the unbridled passions from introducing greater forms of depravity? What will protect human reason from further destruction?

 

9. Transgender Ideology and Religious Persecution

Favored by secularism, Transgender Ideology may spark the worst type of religious persecution as it imposes a perversion of the mind, beginning with small children. Those who oppose it are targeted by this new religion of equality, which obliges children to attend sensitivity training and gender indoctrination. Indeed, those who cheer the homosexual movement -- whether they know it or not -- are de facto servants of a new religion.

Its doctrine: Transgender Ideology. Its false god: Radical equality and reckless liberalism. Its ministers: Leaders of the homosexual movement. Its acolytes: Liberal media, immoral politicians and, sadly, dissident members of the clergy. Its "inquisition": Anti-discrimination laws that threaten order and peace. Its "excommunication": Anyone who speaks the truth is labeled a "homophobe" or a "transphobe."

 

10. It Offends God

The desire to change one's biological sex not only denies reality, but also offends God. Nobody is born male or female by chance, but in accordance with a plan of Divine Providence: "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I dedicated you, a prophet to the nations I appointed you (Jer. 1:5). God created male and female (Gen. 1:27). Therefore, to intentionally contradict the biological nature of mankind is an act of revolt against our Creator.

Charity calls us to help those afflicted or confused about their own sex, not to increase their confusion by offering them a false solution. Charity "does not rejoice over wrongdoing but rejoices with the truth" (1 Cor. 13:6). Therefore, mercy can never stand in opposition to the truth, for only the truth can set you free (John 8:32).

 

What can we do to save the family?

We must follow the angelic example of Saint Michael the Archangel.

"Put on the armor of God so that you may be able to stand firm against the tactics of the devil. For our struggle is not with flesh and blood but with the principalities, with the powers, with the world rulers of this present darkness, with the evil spirits in the heavens. Therefore, put on the armor of God, that you may be able to resist on the evil day and, having done everything, to hold your ground" (Eph. 6:11-13).

Taking a Principled not a Personal Stand

In writing this statement, we have no intention to defame or disparage anyone. We are not moved by personal hatred against any individual. In intellectually opposing individuals or organizations promoting the homosexual agenda, our only intent is the defense of traditional marriage, the family, and the precious remnants of Christian civilization.

As practicing Catholics, we are filled with compassion and pray for those who struggle against unrelenting and violent temptation to homosexual sin. We pray for those who fall into homosexual sin out of human weakness, that God may assist them with His grace.

We are conscious of the enormous difference between these individuals who struggle with their weakness and strive to overcome it and others who transform their sin into a reason for pride and try to impose their lifestyle on society as a whole, in flagrant opposition to traditional Christian morality and natural law. However, we pray for these too.

We pray also for the judges, legislators and government officials who in one way or another take steps that favor homosexuality and same-sex “marriage.” We do not judge their intentions, interior dispositions, or personal motivations.

We reject and condemn any violence. We simply exercise our liberty as children of God (Rom. 8:21) and our constitutional rights to free speech and the candid, unapologetic and unashamed public display of our Catholic faith. We oppose arguments with arguments. To the arguments in favor of homosexuality and same-sex “marriage” we respond with arguments based on right reason, natural law and Divine Revelation.

In a polemical statement like this, it is possible that one or another formulation may be perceived as excessive or ironic. Such is not our intention.

April 8

Every virtue in your soul
is a precious ornament
which makes you dear to God and to man.
But holy purity, the queen of virtues, the angelic virtue,
is a jewel so precious
that those who possess it become like the angels of God in Heaven,
even though clothed in mortal flesh.

St. Julie Billiart

Born on July 12, 1751 in Cuvilly, France, Marie Rose Julie Billiard was the daughter of fairly well-to-do peasant farmers who also owned a small shop. From early childhood Julie had a keen interest in spiritual things and by seven years of age she had memorized the catechism and attained an understanding of it beyond her years.

During her youth, her father’s shop was robbed and her father attacked. This so traumatized his daughter that she became ill and gradually a physical paralysis took hold of her. Deprived of the use of her legs, she eventually had great difficulty in even speaking. Julie's paralysis lasted for twenty-two years, and throughout this whole trial she continued to teach her beloved catechism to children and to trust unwaveringly in the everlasting goodness of “le bon Dieu”. Her infirmities drove her to an even deeper life of prayer and union with God.

During the Reign of Terror of the French Revolution when the pastor of Cuvilly was superseded by a constitutional priest sworn to the new atheistic government, Julie influenced her friends and neighbors to boycott the intruder. Though an invalid herself, she worked to hide and assist fugitive priests who remained loyal to the Catholic Church, and for this charitable work she was herself persecuted and obliged to escape from place to place – on one occasion, hiding all night under a haystack.

While taking refuge with the aristocratic family of Gézaincourt, Julie met Françoise Blin de Bourdon, a noblewoman who had barely escaped the guillotine by the fall of Robespierre before her execution. The two became close friends and collaborators.

After the Terror, they both dedicated themselves to the spiritual care of poor children, and the Christian education of girls in a generation sorely neglected by the ravages of the Revolution.

In 1804, after a novena to Him, Julie Billiart was miraculously healed of the paralysis of her legs on the feast of Sacred Heart of Jesus. Now physically free to pursue a full range of activity, her educational work increased rapidly.

At odds with the bishop of Amiens through the meddling influence of a misguided young priest, Julie and Françoise were obliged to move to Namur, in present-day Belgium, where with the full support of the local bishop, they proceeded with their work, eventually founding the Institute of Notre Dame de Namur, today in sixteen countries around the world.

Julie Billiart died on April 8, 1816 while praying the Magnificat. She was canonized in 1969.

And He Stole Heaven

He hung on a cross that day, writhing in pain and discomfort, the infamous highwayman.
 
On his left hung another man, covered in the matted blood of his wounds. Yet, with the exception of a few intermittent words, there was no sound from him.

As time passed, the thief became more and more engrossed in the silent crucified beside him, and less and less in his own plight.St Dismas Picture

Indeed life is ironic, mused Dismas, this man who had lived in the open, and was acclaimed as a healer and even as a king, now hung beside him who had spent his life lurking and hiding.

And now they were lifted up, both on a high parallel. He could see the roof tops of the city, he could see the highways he had stalked, and he could see the way they had walked. Now he looked down on those gathered around this place of execution, the Roman soldiers, the Pharisees, the curious, the friends of the man beside him…and a young man supporting a lady directly beneath them...

And then he knew her; that upturned face, that maidenly majesty now wracked by sorrow, her tear-filled eyes fastened on the man on his left–Yes, he knew that face.

As the wheels of time rolled back in his mind,  his heart gave a jolt as he remembered that blessed day in the desert, decades ago, when a young family making its way to Egypt, sought refuge for the night in his family’s hovel. The man was strong and kind, the woman was the fairest his child’s eyes had seen, and she carried a golden haired babe, as if nothing in the universe was more precious.

He remembered the lady’s gaze on him, her beautiful eyes full of concern for the leprous sores on his young body. Then she and his mother talked. And next, he was being bathed in the same water the lady had just washed her infant son.

And then the sores were gone.  His mother wept for joy, and kissed the lady’s hands, and the baby’s feet. And even his robber-father was moved, and offered the strong man and his family the best in the house.

Now, in one revealing flash, he knew the identity of the wounded man on his left.  He looked again at the lady, and her eyes, those same sweet eyes of old, were on him once more.  
He felt his heart quiver, as the power of gratitude filled his being and softened his criminal soul.  And then came tears, rivers of tears.  When he could speak, he turned to the left,

“Lord, remember me when You come into Your kingdom.”

And the Lord turned his face to him, His divine eyes on him, and he heard the most beautiful voice he had ever heard, a voice at once full of pain and full of strength, full of sweetness and full of majesty, a judge’s voice, and a father’s voice,

“Amen, amen I say to you, today you shall be with me in paradise.”
