Vatican rejects the idea that people can choose genders, says transgenderism is a bid to 'annihilate nature'

The Vatican has published an educational document called “Male and female he created them” in a bid to tackle what it called “an educational crisis”.

The document called transgenderism a bid to 'annihilate nature' -  and said that people can't choose or change their genders and insists on the sexual 'complementarity' of men and women to make babies.




The new 'guidance' was intended to help Catholic teachers, parents, students and clergy address what the Vatican's Congregation for Catholic Education called an 'educational crisis' in the field of sex education.

It called for a 'path of dialogue' and listening on the issue of 'gender theory' in education.

The document drawn up by the church’s education ministry states: “It is becoming increasingly clear that we are now facing with what might accurately be called an educational crisis, especially in the field of affectivity and sexuality.”

The document notes “challenges” rising from gender theory which “denies the difference and reciprocity in nature of a man and a woman and envisages a society without sexual differences, thereby eliminating the anthropological basis of the family”.

The document, which supports the role of mother and father in a traditional family, outlines “the Christian vision of anthropology [which] sees sexuality as a fundamental component of one’s personhood.

“It is from [their] sex that the human person receives the characteristics which, on the biological, psychological and spiritual levels, make that person a man or a woman.”

The document is to be distributed internationally across the Catholic educational system.

Pope Francis has repeatedly argued the position that people cannot choose their genders.

According to Associated Press the document represents the first attempt to put the Vatican's position, first articulated fully by Pope Benedict XVI in a 2012 speech, into a comprehensive, official text.

The document called for a new alliance among families, schools and society to offer a 'positive and prudent sexual education' in Catholic schools so children learn the 'full original truth of masculinity and femininity'.

It called gender fluidity a symptom of the 'confused concept of freedom' and 'momentary desires' that characterise post-modern culture.

It rejected terms such as 'intersex' and 'transgender' and said the purpose of the biological 'complementarity' of the male and female sex organs was to ensure procreation.
