Proper Catholicism: Green Bay Diocese Affirms Biological Sex as Basis for Gender

For hundreds of years, the Catholic Church has served as a foundation for traditional morals throughout world history. It would be remiss if the Church didn’t intervene in the clear error of 21st century gender theory. Thankfully, the Green Bay Diocese has affirmed the gender binary as the truth in a recent change to its education policy manual, reported by Catholic News Agency July 13. 

According to CNA, the diocese has approximately 9,000 students. 12,000 of these people attend religious education classes. The clause they added prohibits the use of pronouns and wearing clothing that do not align with a person’s biological sex. It went into effect July 1. The punishments for any violations include corrective actions, suspension or expulsion. 

Finally someone took out the bully pulpit.

The policy states, “The Church teaches that our identities as male and female are part of God’s good design in Creation, that our bodies and sexual identities are gifts from God, and that we should accept and care for our bodies as they were created.” 

A similar policy was implemented in Lansing, Diocese in January 2021. There, schools, churches, charities and parishes were required to recognize people based on their biological sex. 

Richard Budd, Director of the Office of Marriage and Family Life at The Diocese of Lansing, said “Gender dysphoria is a real psychological condition which causes real human suffering that has to be met with genuine compassion, rooted in truth and love, and accompanied by the highest standards of pastoral care.” 

The Church is not only pushing back against idealogues, it’s committed to helping people with a real psychological condition get better. 

The Congregation for Catholic Education in 2019 issued a scathing critique of leftist gender nonsense and its hostility to life and family, saying “[In gender theory] the only thing that matters in personal relationships is the affection between the individuals involved, irrespective of sexual difference or procreation which would be seen as irrelevant in the formation of families,” according to CNA. 

It’s good to see the church push back against the horrible ideas of the Godless left, and take real action to fight them in education, where their indoctrination of children is most potent.
