It's almost a cardinal sin in today's culture to talk about objective truth when it comes to sexuality. If you are a boy and want to be a girl, what of it? And if you want to marry someone of your same sex, who should tell you it's wrong? The problem now is that the LGBT community wants to bring this ideology into the schools, as young as elementary.
Pope Francis just wrote a letter graciously standing against letting this pervasive confusion seep into our schools, shares The Christian Post.
"Sex education should also include respect and appreciation for differences, as a way of helping the young to overcome their self-absorption and to be open and accepting of others," Pope Francis wrote. "Beyond the understandable difficulties which individuals may experience, the young need to be helped to accept their own body as it was created, for 'thinking that we enjoy absolute power over our own bodies turns, often subtly, into thinking that we enjoy absolute power over Creation.'"
To accept their own body as it was created. This is exactly what the LGBT community is attacking, and Pope Francis wisely shows the root of this: a desire to think of ourselves as greater than God, the Creator.
The Pope continued, "In this way we can joyfully accept the specific gifts of another man or woman, the work of God the Creator, and find mutual enrichment," he added. "Only by losing the fear of being different, can we be freed of self-centeredness and self-absorption. Sex education should help young people to accept their own bodies and to avoid the pretension 'to cancel out sexual difference because one no longer knows how to deal with it.'"
Pope Francis also wisely corrected false gender stereotypes.
"A rigid approach turns into an over-accentuation of the masculine or feminine, and does not help children and young people to appreciate the genuine reciprocity incarnate in the real conditions of matrimony," he said. "Such rigidity, in turn, can hinder the development of an individual's abilities, to the point of leading him or her to think, for example, that it is not really masculine to cultivate art or dance, or not very feminine to exercise leadership.
We love that the Pope, who has such incredible influence, is speaking out on this issue! This is a matter that can make or break the future of our children. Do you agree?
