In a new book, Pope Francis: This Economy Kills, the Pope calls on Christians to “safeguard God’s order of creation” and compares trans and the genderqueer to nuclear weapons. The head of the Catholic Church –with more than 1.2 billion members– says:
“Let’s think of the nuclear arms, of the possibility to annihilate in a few instants a very high number of human beings. Let’s think also of genetic manipulation, of the manipulation of life, or of the gender theory, that does not recognize the order of creation. With this attitude, man commits a new sin, that against God the Creator.
The true custody of creation does not have anything to do with the ideologies that consider man like an accident, like a problem to eliminate. God has placed man and woman and the summit of creation and has entrusted them with the earth. The design of the Creator is written in nature. If we fail in this responsibility, if we do not take care of our brothers and of all creation, destruction advances.”
It would be easier to dismiss if the world wasn’t starting to take notice of this supposedly “progressive” new Pope. But lately those in the LGBTQ community have become increasingly concerned with his comments and writings –and rightly so. Maybe the community should stop looking for support and affirmation from this Pope. He seems to take one step forward one month and then two steps back the next. If you’re Catholic, this must be difficult to reconcile. (via Gay Star News)
