Bishops condemn Canada’s radical transgender bill: ‘cannot be endorsed by Catholics’

OTTAWA, July 11, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — Catholics cannot endorse the principle behind the Justin Trudeau Liberal government’s transgender “rights” bill, namely, that gender can be separated from biological sex, Canada’s bishops made clear last week.

“This central tenet of contemporary gender theory is not in accord with natural law or Christian revelation and has therefore been explicitly rejected by Pope Francis and by Pope Benedict XVI,” the bishops said in a July 7 press release.

    Canada has bishops?

    • Alain

      Yes, and likely the same ones who would allow Trudeau to take communion should he attend a mass, or like those who saw no problem in giving his father a big Catholic funeral in spite of everything.

    I’ve noticed more and more that people with these gender issues tend to usually work in the government (all levels). Even the military is not immune. I’ve also noticed that many government workers (especially federal) take 6 month or 1 year+ long stress leaves (while still being paid).

    • Alain

      Yes that is thanks to allowing public service unions.

      • Justin St.Denis

        I’m not so sure. Whenever I accepted a (provincial or federal) government contract, I always factored in the stress of dealing with public sector management reps in my pricing. That is perhaps why government pays more for services from private sector service suppliers than private sector clients do. I always found the assholes got bigger the higher up you went in the provincial civil service. Must be hell to work there full-time if you have a brain and standards! Just something to consider….

          What about Crown corporations?
          What was your experience there?

          • Justin St.Denis

            Those are part of the “broader public sector. It really depends upon the corporation. Years ago, I worked a contract for Teleglobe Canada (now gone, I believe). They were real telecommunications engineering pros. I enjoyed my work with them immensely. On the other hand, I worked a contract for a provincial power utility that was “living hell” and which I would never repeat.

        • Alain

          I can assure you it has everything to do with public service unions from personal experience. You could also count on them to push for the most extreme causes in every new contract negotiation such as diversity, SSM, affirmative action and I am sure they are on the tranny bandwagon now. They are always run by radical leftists and throw money at the same causes without the consent of their members. Just take a moment and think about CUPE and CUPE is NOT unique when it comes to public service unions.

          • Justin St.Denis

            I am not disputing union abuses. I simply empathize with the genuine professionals in provincial and federal civil services. They are not ALL assholes. The assholian component tends to congeal at the top and bottom of such organizations. Just sayin’………….
