Sanity At Last re: “transgendered children”

Here’s a good, solid, professional assessment on one of the more recent examples of the insanity sweeping the nation.  First they rejected God.  This allowed them to reinvent truth, moral truth in particular, and moral truth concerning sexual activity especially.  This not being enough, they decided to reinvent marriage.  But wait!  Why not “gender identity” too?  And how about the children…. why not start them young…. very young….

This article sheds some light, and some refreshing “normal sanity” on the subject.  Please read it:

Gender Ideology Harms Children

The opening paragraph, on the Homiletic & Pastoral Review website:

The American College of Pediatricians urges healthcare professionals, educators and legislators to reject all policies that condition children to accept as normal a life of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex. Facts—not ideology—determine reality. The following 8 points and clarifications are herewith provided in order to help priests and curators of souls some guidelines with which to counsel people properly. An earlier version of this statement was published by the American College of Pediatricians (the College) on its website in August, 2016. The College is a national organization of child health professionals that is rooted in science and natural law. Fr. David Meconi, S.J., received permission from the College to reissue it in HPR. Please keep the American College of Pediatricians and its good work in your prayers.


  1. Dear Thomas, thanks for addressing this hard and important topic. I pray that the “right” people read the enclosed article. Children must be led and encouraged to embrace the body God gave them. He doesn’t make mistakes. I will join you to pray for the American College of Pediatricians and the children need guidance.

  2. Dear Thomas,

    Thanks for the link to the article in HPR. How terrible to read of the abuse some children are suffering! I’m really glad Fr. Meconi published this in HPR so that other priests, deacons, and parishioners can read this assessment written by a professional with “common sense”.

    The Church prayerfully needs to discern truth from falsehood in so many areas today. Families can become so confused in the midst of conflicting opinions. As Pentecost approaches, let us pray to the Holy Spirit to guide us all in our call to be Christ’s Light in this world.

    May God continue to bless those in the medical profession who are earnestly seeking to “do no harm”. Let us especially keep the American College of Pediatricians and its good work in our prayers.
