Massachusetts bishops issue neutral statement on state guarantee for ‘transgender’ rights

[They are as neutered as their statement]

Catholic World News – July 11, 2016

The Catholic bishops of Massachusetts have issued a public statement encouraging “careful oversight and respect for all individuals” in the wake of the state legislature’s approval of a new law that will give “transgender” individual the right to use the public accomodations of their choice.

In their statement– issued through the Massachusetts Catholic Conference, the public-policy arm of the state’s bishops– the bishops indicate no opposition to the claims of people who identify with the opposite gender; they asset: “The understanding of and respect for transgender persons has only recently commanded widespread attention.” Acknowledging that public debate on the issue is likely to continue, the statement says: “We urge respect in this discussion for all those whose rights require protection.”

“In our parishes, schools, and other institutions, the Church will respect the civil law,” the statement says, “while upholding the principles of our faith and our religious freedom.” The statement does not comment on the challenges to the Catholic faith posed by individuals who demand to be treated as members of the opposite sex.

  1. “We urge respect in this discussion for all those whose rights require protection.”

    Damn you, Cardinal O’Malley!
    Damn you Bishop McManus, my bishop. (I wrote you about this!)
    You have sold my wife and daughters’ privacy, their RIGHT, for 30 pieces of whatever they give you these days.

  2. “In our parishes, schools, and other institutions, the Church will respect the civil law,”

    Judases!

    Thank be to Our Lady for getting me out of the Novus Ordo Hell hole these bishops have dug.

    Paging all priests with some balls, keep the boys out of the girls rooms. Speak out NOW!

  3. It just occurred to me: transy is the acceptable alternative to queer. While it’s on the books that the homo is disordered, which they can’t deny, there is nothing in the CCC about transies, if I recall. This is the loophole. This will be the acceptable communicant.
