Breaking! The Church welcomes transsexuals and homosexuals!

The Main Stream Media has not jumped at a story such as this one since January 12, 2010 when Hundreds of thousands of people were killed after a 7.0-magnitude earthquake hit the island nation of Haiti.

In case you just returned from Mars. The Dicastery for the Doctrine of the Faith responds to questions concerning the participation of transsexual persons and persons with same-sex attraction in the Sacraments of Baptism and Matrimony and related ceremonies ad follows: Transsexual persons, even if they have undergone hormone therapy or sex reassignment surgery, may receive the Sacrament of Baptism. The children of homosexual couples should be baptized even if they are born from a surrogate mother, provided there is a well-founded hope that they will be educated in the Catholic faith.

This Dicastery, formerly called a Congregation, has the specific mission “to promote and safeguard the doctrine on faith and morals in the whole Catholic world. Therefore, those things belong to it which touch this matter in any way

What the MSM does not report is that the story is 2000 years old "Jesus said to them in reply, “Those who are healthy do not need a physician, but the sick do. I have not come to call the righteous to repentance but sinners.” Luke Chapter 5

But it is not surprising. We live in an age where people refuse to take responsibility for their own actions but demand apologies and reparations for atrocities they never experienced, from people who never committed them. They like to cancel art, ideas, symbols, language & history they don’t agree with – they even go as far as canceling  names of military bases: In California, Governor Newsom 1pushes billions in euphemistically referred to as reparations payments as state faces budget deficit disaster – neglects to consider that the Ultimate Reparation has already been paid in full, for example.

In the words of James Joyce: "Christianity is the ultimate inclusive set of beliefs" - everybody is welcome. The Church teaches everyone is created for love. Everyone has desires that are not good. Those who identify as gay have dignity Those who experience same-sex attraction are worthwhile. Those who are grappling with their Sexuality as part of the family, that is, part of the human family, and if they are Christian, they are part of the family of God. If you are same-sex attracted person, you belong to the Catholic Church

Invariable the transsexuals and homosexuals "news" is covered through the prism of LGBTQ rights and inclusivity.  But Inalienable  Rights are those endowed by the Creator to all man, inuding those in the womb or in death row. Talk of other rights is merely demagoguery used by corrupt politicians, and propagandists to build a strawman argument, divide the people  and ultimately buy votes. Why the story should be less about rights and more about responsibilities, since the Church, in the words of James Joyce can be characterized as Here Come Everybody. The Church recognizes that (CCC 2358) The number of men and women who have deep-seated homosexual tendencies is not negligible. This inclination, which is objectively disordered, constitutes for most of them a trial. They must be accepted with respect, compassion, and sensitivity. Every sign of unjust discrimination in their regard should be avoided. These persons are called to fulfill God's will in their lives and, if they are Christians, to unite to the sacrifice of the Lord's Cross the difficulties they may encounter from their condition.
The Church also teaches that everyone made in God's image. "God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him, male and female he created them."218 Man occupies a unique place in creation: (I) he is "in the image of God"; (II) in his own nature he unites the spiritual and material worlds; (III) he is created "male and female"; (IV) God established him in his friendship. CCC 355

The Church also teaches everyone is broken. Homosexuality refers to relations between men or between women who experience an exclusive or predominant sexual attraction toward persons of the same sex. It has taken a great variety of forms through the centuries and in different cultures. Its psychological genesis remains largely unexplained. Basing itself on Sacred Scripture, which presents homosexual acts as acts of grave depravity, tradition has always declared that "homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered." They are contrary to the natural law. They close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity. Under no circumstances can they be approved. CCC 2357

In the area of responsibility, the Church teaches (CCC 2359) the Homosexual persons are called to chastity. By the virtues of self-mastery that teach them inner freedom, at times by the support of disinterested friendship, by prayer and sacramental grace, they can and should gradually and resolutely approach Christian perfection.

The same participants in the current media transsexuals circus,  attempted to get the  circus started by disrupting the just concluded synod " Famously, the current synod, in a sense, got underway 48 hours before its formal opening with a set of dubia, or doubts, submitted to the pontiff by five conservative cardinals. In responses to those dubia released by the Vatican, Francis, among other things, offered a cautious “yes” to the blessing of same-sex unions on a case-by-case basis, and a basic “no” to women’s ordination while allowing for the possibility of further study."

What is clear is that the so-called transsexuals and homosexuals breaking story is not new. It's 2000 years old!
