Well, it was nice while it lasted…
In the three years that Pope Francis has been in charge of the Catholic Church, he’s done an amazing job of preaching acceptance to his religious followers.
Unfortunately, it seems as though the internalized hate usually associated with Christianity has finally gotten to him, because the 79-year-old leader’s very revolting beliefs about transgender individuals were just revealed on Tuesday.
Historically, the Papacy has never been too fond of anyone identifying as queer… but during a meeting with Polish Bishops last week, Francis admitted that the recent pro-trans movement has been “terrible” for the world.
According to the translated transcripts, he referred to transgender people as heralds of “the annihilation of man as image of God.”
In fact, the Argentinian basically stated that he thinks schools are making kids transgender nowadays, saying:
“Today, in schools they are teaching this to children — to children! — that everyone can choose their gender.”
Educating a child about different gender and forcing them to change genders are TOTALLY different things!
Actually… that second thing doesn’t even exist.
Do U think the Pope can ever redeem himself in the eyes of the LGBT community??
