CT Blogger, Liam Jenkinson, has written to the Vatican with his concerns about the fact that “transgenderism” is being promoted in a Catholic primary school in his Diocese. The letter, published below, is self-explanatory:
To the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith
Reference: Hallam Diocese- Transgender Policy
St Bede’s R.C Primary School P.P MGR.Ryan.
The parish priest of this primary school is involved in a process whereby an 8 year old boy has been authorised to come to school dressed as a girl and to be treated in all respects as a girl. This is a grave public scandal and will severely damage the delicate consciences of the other people in the school most notably the children, headteacher and staff. It also creates a dangerous precedent whereby other schools will be unable to reject similar requests for transgender recognition and support.
According to expert opinion the Church teaching is that the gender written on a baptismal certificate remains for all time and is unchangeable and that subsequently there should be no connivance with any transgender issue. See ” legatus.orgcatholicschoolspolicyand transgender students by Edmund J Furton PhD. Director of publications National Catholic Bioethics Centre.”
You need to urgently deal with this grave ongoing scandal and wound on the Mystical Body of Christ by asking the Bishop, the Vicar General and Parish Priest to immediately reverse this decision.
Kudos to Mr Jenkinson for refusing to remain silent on this hugely important deviation from the moral law, being authorised in a Catholic primary school. Unlike the many members of the TSB (Talk Shop Brigade), Mr Jenkinson has chosen to be an apostle. To act. Let’s hope his intervention bears the desired fruit so that this shocking permission is withdrawn.
