The Dangers Stemming From Gender Ideology

“The gender ideology (movement) is the product of many decades of ideological and cultural changes that are deeply rooted in Marxism and neo-Marxism endorsed by some feminist movements and the sexual revolution. This ideology promotes principles that are totally contrary to reality and an integral understanding of human nature.

It maintains that biological sex is not socially significant and that cultural sex which humans can freely develop and determine irrespective of biological conditions is most important. According to this ideology, humans can freely determine whether they want to be men or women and freely choose their sexual orientation. This voluntary self-determination, not necessarily life-long, is to make the society accept the right to set up new types of families, for instance, families built on homosexual relations.

The danger of gender ideology lies in its very destructive character both for men, people contacts and social life as a whole. Humans unsure of their sexual identity are not capable of discovering and fulfilling tasks that they face in their marital, family social and professional lives. Attempts to form different types of relations de facto seriously weaken marriage as a community created by a man and a woman and the family built on marriage.”

    I guess if we allow people to choose their path the church loses power and followers. Oh and money. Silly me. One forgets how rich the Catholic Church is.

      Cynicism masquerades as wisdom, but it is the farthest thing from it. Cynics don’t learn anything. It is a self-imposed blindness, a rejection of a thing because we are afraid it will disappoint us, or maybe just call into question our presuppositions.

      So much easier to dismiss an argument with an ad hominem attack, isn’t it.

    Not sure if you are referring to my post or the one directly below it. My comments are not an attack but rather an observation. The church as your practising “Truth and Tolerance”, the words your site has headlined. Our society needs to embrace all people and that will take real leadership and understanding.
