Pope Francis has just outraged certain people for his stance on gender surgery. His words come at a controversial time in history where transgender rights are talked about on a daily basis by liberal organizations.
The Pope was referencing technology that can now change people from one gender to another. His words on the technology were definitely binary.
Speaking to the Vatican’s bioethics board on Thursday, Francis said that “rather than contrast negative interpretations of sexual differences... they want to cancel these differences out altogether, proposing techniques and practices that render them irrelevant for human development and relations,” Newsday reported.
He also said that these procedures “risk dismantling the source of energy that fuels the alliance between men and women and renders them fertile.”
The Pope has spoken out on issues about the transgender community before. He has also previously called for priests to mentor to the LGBT community.
He added that these practices “risk dismantling the source of energy that fuels the alliance between men and women and renders them fertile,” according to Newsweek.
Some advocates for the LGBT community were upset with the Pope’s stance on the gender reassignment technology that is now available in some surgeries. What do you think?
