Head of Catholic Church, Pope Francis has condemned schools that teach kids transgender issues saying that no one chooses gender, we all grow to discover it.
Pope Francis who feels such a teaching is a big threat to the institution of marriage, said ” changing a kid’s mentality on sexual identity in schools is ‘ideological colonization.
He stated this on Sunday during a meeting with a French man whose son wanted to be a girl after reading about it in school.
According to the Pope, he still spends time with Transgender people, trying to lead them closer to God:
“This is against nature,” he said. “It is one thing when someone has this tendency … and it is another matter to teach this in school. To change the mentality,I call this ideological colonization. Today, in schools they are teaching this to children, to children!.. that everyone can choose their gender,” Pope Francis
“The pontiff’s remarks are further evidence that church officials need desperately to educate themselves about the lives and experiences of LGBT people,” said Francis DeBernardo, executive director of New Ways Ministry. Nobody chooses a gender identity. They discover it.”
