The Australian Catholic Bishops Conference (ACBC) has taken a courageous stand against gender ideology.
Today it has issued guidance urging its schools to avoid assisting in the issue of puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones or surgery to limit possible infertility, “unnecessary damage” and “future possibilities for healthy human growth”.
“Research data strongly suggests that, for the vast majority of children and adolescents, gender incongruence is a psychological condition through which they will pass safely and naturally with supportive psychological care,” the guidance states. “Studies quote between 80 to 90 per cent of pre-pubescent children who do not seem to fit social gender expectations are not gender-incongruent in the long term.”
This will likely trigger those who push an unquestioning affirmation approach and the ACBC will cop heat for its stance.
That’s why it’s so important that we send the ACBC a message of support for going against powerful forces which push dangerous and irreversible treatments on gender-confused children.
