More “Trans” Craziness: Edinburgh University ID Badges – gimme a break! 

Comment:

Scotland’s First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, is determined to put Scotland at the front of the queue in promoting LGBT issues, and is now focussing big time on “Trans” issues.  This includes brainwashing pupils in primary schools: 

“…Last week the Scottish Government was told it may face legal action over school transgender guidance it endorsed and funded.
‘Supporting Transgender Young People: Guidance For Schools in Scotland’ says teachers should not tell parents if their child changes gender at school unless the child, who could be as young as four years old, gives permission first. Lawyers for The Christian Institute warned the guide “contains glaring errors in relation to the current law”.    Read more here

So, from their primary school days through to university, Scottish students are to be brainwashed with the crackpot notion that men can become women and women can become men. For Edinburgh University to issue “Pronoun” badges, is akin to handing out Identity (ID) badges. So much for the fear of being bullied. Seriously, what kind of craziness  IS this?  Is there nothing to be done? Are we simply to settle down and wait for this madness to pass?  Are we going to continue to allow ourselves to be bullied into silence through fear of being charged with “hate speech”?  Is there anything we can do, those of us who do not adhere to politically correct “norms”?  And that includes the priest chaplains of these schools, colleges and universities… and their Bishops – why are they silent?   When will it dawn on them that they, more than anyone else, will be called to serious account for their failure to speak out loud and clear  in the face of this major assault on our basic humanity?

Bishop John Keenan of Paisley Welcomes Latest “Fertility Breakthrough”…

HUMAN eggs have been fully grown in a laboratory for the first time, in a breakthrough that could lead to improved fertility treatments.
Scientists have grown egg cells, which were removed from ovary tissue at their earliest stage of development, to the point at which they are ready to be fertilised.
The advance could safeguard the fertility of girls with cancer ahead of potentially harmful medical treatment, such as chemotherapy.

Immature eggs recovered from patients’ ovarian tissue could be matured in the lab and stored for later fertilisation…

The study, carried out in collaboration with the Royal Infirmary Edinburgh, The Center for Human Reproduction in New York and the Royal Hospital for Sick Children in Edinburgh, was supported by the Medical Research Council. It was published in Molecular Human Reproduction.
Professor Evelyn Telfer, of the School of Biological Sciences, who led the research, said: “Being able to fully develop human eggs in the lab could widen the scope of available fertility treatments.  Click here to read the entire report

On his Facebook page (screenshot above) Bishop John Keenan, Diocese of Paisley writes: “As far as I can see this is a potentially excellent breakthrough in fertility science. In principle, it is a great development if a woman’s eggs could be matured and made viable in vitro provided they could be re-implanted into her in readiness for fertilisation through the normal marital act. Obviously, this is quite different from IVF. 

Comment:

I have always presumed that ferility treatment meant treatment that made the woman fertile per se. These sorts of laboratory “test-tube” treatments do not appear to “cure” the woman’s infertility, merely find a way to by-pass it on a particular occasion. If I’m wrong about that, I’ll be pleased to be corrected. 

Otherwise, I’m afraid, I question why a Bishop would welcome such scientific means of achieving conception, instead of reminding us all that if we can’t get what we want, whether material goods or a baby, we must accept that, with holy resignation, as God’s will.  That was the attitude I heard from relatives who, sadly disappointed, were unable to have children. “Not to be” are words we seldom hear these days, with little to no encouragement from the average pulpit to accept this disappointment as, for His own inscrutable purposes, part of God’s plan for our salvation, His holy will.  Or perhaps you think that’s pie-in-the-sky theobabble?
