#oecta pushed C16 trans bill which church opposes! #catholicteachers @archtoronto
OECTA are big behind C-16 Trans bill. They push Genderbread person etc. Meanwhile the actual Holy Catholic Church opposes!!
While the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops supports Bill C-16’s intention to protect Canadians from harm, some of the principles behind the legislation – even if widely accepted in our society – cannot be endorsed by Catholics. The most serious of these is the claim that gender is separable from biological sexuality and is to be determined by the individual. This central tenet of contemporary gender theory is not in accord with natural law or Christian revelation and has therefore been explicitly rejected by Pope Francis and by Pope Benedict XVI.
According to Genesis, we are created male and female, in the image of God (Genesis 1:26, 27). Each of us – man or woman – is challenged to fulfill our human vocation in a way that is individually unique yet true to what we have been created to be. In the words of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, 2332 and 2333, each man and woman “should acknowledge and accept” his or her biological sexual identity, including “physical, moral, and spiritual difference and complementarity,” which “affects all aspects of the human person in the unity of his body and soul.” This identity “especially concerns affectivity, the capacity to love and to procreate, and in a more general way the aptitude for forming bonds of communion with others.”
