Man, Pope Sunshine and Unicorns has been kind of a jerk lately. Did you know that transgender people are kind of like nuclear weapons?
The head of the Catholic Church has claimed people who ‘manipulate’ their bodies are similar to ‘Herods’ that ‘destroy, that plot designs of death, that disfigure the face of man and woman, destroying creation.’
The comments were made in a new book published in Italy, Pope Francis: This Economy Kills, calling on Christians to safeguard God’s order of creation.
‘Let’s think of the nuclear arms, of the possibility to annihilate in a few instants a very high number of human beings,’ he says.
‘Let’s think also of genetic manipulation, of the manipulation of life, or of the gender theory, that does not recognize the order of creation.’
‘With this attitude, man commits a new sin, that against God the Creator,’ the pope adds.
‘The true custody of creation does not have anything to do with the ideologies that consider man like an accident, like a problem to eliminate.’
‘God has placed man and woman and the summit of creation and has entrusted them with the earth,’ Francis says. ‘The design of the Creator is written in nature.’
‘If we fail in this responsibility, if we do not take care of our brothers and of all creation, destruction advances,’ he added.
People wanting to alter their bodies to maximize their own happiness and weapons designed to end lives on a massive scale. Can’t see the similarities? Here, try looking again while wearing these Jesus glasses.
Yeah, destruction, because someone has a penis rather than a vagina. Whooptie shit. You want to see destruction? Look at the affects of institutions propagating fear and loathing of transsexuals on the lives of trans men and women. There’s some destruction (though nowhere close to what nuclear weapons do). But destruction because someone altered their genitalia? Give me a break.
Because it’s not your body, it’s god’s body, and god has given the Catholic Church jurisdiction over it. He told them so.
Listen Catholics, if you don’t think the pope’s pronouncements sound sane or kind, walk away. Ok, you still love Jesus – figure out what that means to you. If you disagree with the pope then you’re already doing just that. But stop empowering this man and this Church when you have such profound moral disagreements with them.
