A Catholic University in Minnesota hosting transgender solidarity events?
One of the most exciting moments for any pregnant couple is finding out the gender of their baby. By the eighteenth week, it is obvious via ultrasound whether the couple is having a little boy or a little girl. The ultrasound technician doesn’t do a brain scan of the baby or ask the baby which gender the baby identifies with – she simply checks to see which reproductive organs the child has!
Sex is determined at the point of conception and it does not change. However, in order to serve the god of sex, our culture has decided to ignore reality. And those on the left want to force Christians to do the same. The pressure to conform can be unbearable.
A Catholic University in Minnesota appears to be capitulating to the secular agenda of the left. The University of St. Thomas is a private, Catholic, liberal arts, and archdiocesan university located in St. Paul and Minneapolis. The University is hosting a transgender solitary event on campus December 11th.
This is a Catholic university! The transgender revolution is inconsistent with the Christian worldview. Please sign this petition to the University reminding them who they are and that it is wrong to host this event.
Through celebrating the transgender ideology, we are seriously hurting our young people! Some are even advocating that children as young as 12 begin chemical transitions if they are confused about their gender! Children, young people, and adults are mutilating their bodies and our culture is telling them that it is healthy and good. This is tolerance for the sake of cowardice in the face of the new sexual orthodoxy.
These harms of transgenderism led the American College of Pediatricians to issue a statement that transgender ideology harms young people
“Gender dysphoria (GD), formerly listed as Gender Identity Disorder (GID), is a recognized mental disorder in the most recent edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of the American Psychiatric Association (DSM-V).”
Additionally, “[r]ates of suicide are nearly twenty times greater among adults who use cross-sex hormones and undergo sex reassignment surgery, even in Sweden which is among the most LGBTQ – affirming countries. What compassionate and reasonable person would condemn young children to this fate knowing that after puberty as many as 88% of girls and 98% of boys will eventually accept reality and achieve a state of mental and physical health?” (emphasis added).
Many on the left have turned sex and sexual expression into a kind of god. According to this dogmatic religion of self-expression, there must be complete conformity. In the face of this sort of coercion, it is imperative that Christians stand as a unified voice against the culture and work to protect one another against this aggressive and harmful worldview!
Please sign this petition to The University of St. Thomas to act in the best interests of their students by upholding what God teaches about biblical sexuality.
