Francis Bergoglio's and his apostate perverts approve sex change drug

Words fail me.

"It’s astounding that Vatican News, the official portal of Vatican information and the bioethicist Laura Palazzani, a member of the Pontifical Academy for Life, support the Italian State’s decision to include a drug which blocks puberty in the Italian National Health Service. There are statements which overturn Catholic anthropology making the satisfaction of desire a prerogative over vocation. Instead of questioning the causes of distress in adolescence, they offer a drug: a positivist materialism which denies Catholicism. Is this what Catholic universities teach today?"

They want schism. They will keep pushing until they get schism.

I think they are likely surprised no one has pushed back yet. Disappointed, perhaps. It appears to be their primary goal: slice off the troublesome trads. But everyone seems at peace, more or less.

Well, ok then. Farther! Faster!

Modernism is the synthesis of heresies. Just 50 shades of grey which will lead to apostay. Having an apostate in the throne of Peter and his ilk in the hierarchy and in Rome, I have never hoped that they can change. That's why I only laughed at bp ASchneider's recent pathetic response to the apostate Francis' clarification. These churchmen just cannot say II VC has been wrong in pushing for rejection of Catholic doctrines and praxis.
The Bride of God Incarnate is always virginal and unspotted and still is, because there are still many faithful Catholic bishops and priests consecrated and ordained in the Catholic formulae, not the accursed Paul VI change. With these bishops and priests around, the Bride is not conquered by demons because the Catholic sacraments are still being given in the Church Militant.

There are no words Vox. Remember, the Pontifical Academy for Life is a whole new make over designed by Bergoglio. We can smell the rotten stench of Satan coming from the Vatican from HERE.

Next on the agenda - birth control pills.

You know, lots of those divorced and remarried couples receiving Communion already have enough kids. Besides, less children is good for the environment.

Soon Rome will invalidate the Mass. Yuca bread is postponed for now, but that is just strategy of too much too soon. Wait for it. It is coming. The true Church will be underground very soon. Rome is in apostasy but the majority of Catholics are not yet aware of it. Do not be surprised at all of what comes out of the antichurch which Rome now is.

So now the "experts" in the Pontifical Academy for Life believe that a child who doesn't know anything about life should be able to change their gender...Well, since they don't want to follow God's Word, perhaps they should consider listening to actual professionals in the field, such as Dr. Paul McHugh, he's a former psychiatrist in chief at Johns Hopkins Hospital. Dr. McHugh wrote an article published in the Wall Street Journal on June 12th, 2014 describing transgenderism as a mental disorder of assumption. The link to the article is below as well as the full article for your convenience (if you follow the link you will need to subscribe or sign in to read the full article):

Transgender Surgery Isn't the Solution
A drastic physical change doesn't address underlying psycho-social troubles.

The government and media alliance advancing the transgender cause has gone into overdrive in recent weeks. On May 30, a U.S. Department of Health and Human Services review board ruled that Medicare can pay for the "reassignment" surgery sought by the transgendered—those who say that they don't identify with their biological sex. Earlier last month Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said that he was "open" to lifting a ban on transgender individuals serving in the military. Time magazine, seeing the trend, ran a cover story for its June 9 issue called "The Transgender Tipping Point: America's next civil rights frontier."
Yet policy makers and the media are doing no favors either to the public or the transgendered by treating their confusions as a right in need of defending rather than as a mental disorder that deserves understanding, treatment and prevention. This intensely felt sense of being transgendered constitutes a mental disorder in two respects. The first is that the idea of sex misalignment is simply mistaken—it does not correspond with physical reality. The second is that it can lead to grim psychological outcomes.
The transgendered suffer a disorder of "assumption" like those in other disorders familiar to psychiatrists. With the transgendered, the disordered assumption is that the individual differs from what seems given in nature—namely one's maleness or femaleness. Other kinds of disordered assumptions are held by those who suffer from anorexia and bulimia nervosa, where the assumption that departs from physical reality is the belief by the dangerously thin that they are overweight.
With body dysmorphic disorder, an often socially crippling condition, the individual is consumed by the assumption "I'm ugly." These disorders occur in subjects who have come to believe that some of their psycho-social conflicts or problems will be resolved if they can change the way that they appear to others. Such ideas work like ruling passions in their subjects' minds and tend to be accompanied by a solipsistic argument.
For the transgendered, this argument holds that one's feeling of "gender" is a conscious, subjective sense that, being in one's mind, cannot be questioned by others. The individual often seeks not just society's tolerance of this "personal truth" but affirmation of it. Here rests the support for "transgender equality," the demands for government payment for medical and surgical treatments, and for access to all sex-based public roles and privileges.
With this argument, advocates for the transgendered have persuaded several states—including California, New Jersey and Massachusetts—to pass laws barring psychiatrists, even with parental permission, from striving to restore natural gender feelings to a transgender minor. That government can intrude into parents' rights to seek help in guiding their children indicates how powerful these advocates have become.

How to respond? Psychiatrists obviously must challenge the solipsistic concept that what is in the mind cannot be questioned. Disorders of consciousness, after all, represent psychiatry's domain; declaring them off-limits would eliminate the field. Many will recall how, in the 1990s, an accusation of parental sex abuse of children was deemed unquestionable by the solipsists of the "recovered memory" craze.
You won't hear it from those championing transgender equality, but controlled and follow-up studies reveal fundamental problems with this movement. When children who reported transgender feelings were tracked without medical or surgical treatment at both Vanderbilt University and London's Portman Clinic, 70%-80% of them spontaneously lost those feelings. Some 25% did have persisting feelings; what differentiates those individuals remains to be discerned.
We at Johns Hopkins University—which in the 1960s was the first American medical center to venture into "sex-reassignment surgery"—launched a study in the 1970s comparing the outcomes of transgendered people who had the surgery with the outcomes of those who did not. Most of the surgically treated patients described themselves as "satisfied" by the results, but their subsequent psycho-social adjustments were no better than those who didn't have the surgery. And so at Hopkins we stopped doing sex-reassignment surgery, since producing a "satisfied" but still troubled patient seemed an inadequate reason for surgically amputating normal organs.
It now appears that our long-ago decision was a wise one. A 2011 study at the Karolinska Institute in Sweden produced the most illuminating results yet regarding the transgendered, evidence that should give advocates pause. The long-term study—up to 30 years—followed 324 people who had sex-reassignment surgery. The study revealed that beginning about 10 years after having the surgery, the transgendered began to experience increasing mental difficulties. Most shockingly, their suicide mortality rose almost 20-fold above the comparable nontransgender population. This disturbing result has as yet no explanation but probably reflects the growing sense of isolation reported by the aging transgendered after surgery. The high suicide rate certainly challenges the surgery prescription.
There are subgroups of the transgendered, and for none does "reassignment" seem apt. One group includes male prisoners like Pvt. Bradley Manning, the convicted national-security leaker who now wishes to be called Chelsea. Facing long sentences and the rigors of a men's prison, they have an obvious motive for wanting to change their sex and hence their prison. Given that they committed their crimes as males, they should be punished as such; after serving their time, they will be free to reconsider their gender.

Another subgroup consists of young men and women susceptible to suggestion from "everything is normal" sex education, amplified by Internet chat groups. These are the transgender subjects most like anorexia nervosa patients: They become persuaded that seeking a drastic physical change will banish their psycho-social problems. "Diversity" counselors in their schools, rather like cult leaders, may encourage these young people to distance themselves from their families and offer advice on rebutting arguments against having transgender surgery. Treatments here must begin with removing the young person from the suggestive environment and offering a counter-message in family therapy.
Then there is the subgroup of very young, often prepubescent children who notice distinct sex roles in the culture and, exploring how they fit in, begin imitating the opposite sex. Misguided doctors at medical centers including Boston's Children's Hospital have begun trying to treat this behavior by administering puberty-delaying hormones to render later sex-change surgeries less onerous—even though the drugs stunt the children's growth and risk causing sterility. Given that close to 80% of such children would abandon their confusion and grow naturally into adult life if untreated, these medical interventions come close to child abuse. A better way to help these children: with devoted parenting.
At the heart of the problem is confusion over the nature of the transgendered. "Sex change" is biologically impossible. People who undergo sex-reassignment surgery do not change from men to women or vice versa. Rather, they become feminized men or masculinized women. Claiming that this is civil-rights matter and encouraging surgical intervention is in reality to collaborate with and promote a mental disorder.

ArchBish Paglia heads up the Pontifical Bioethics committee that gave approval for this puberty onset halting drug. We know what he is from the mural he commissioned .
Lupron was another synthetic hormone which placed puberty on hold. It was approved for shorter girls in order to increase their height by postponing menarche.
Now after they have been administered the drug long term, they have gross skeletal problems.

Obviously these drugs are also a dream drug for pederasts. A person can be kept childlike until and after they reach the age of consent.
"In Austria, Italy and Germany the age of consent is 14; in Sweden, France and Denmark it is 15 – and Spain recently raised its age of consent from 13 to 16. Meanwhile in Turkey and Malta, teenagers have to wait until they are 18 for sex to be legal."

Vatican News continues to play "hide the ball." The original interview appears to have been published on March 7 in Italian, but still (March 12) have not been translated and placed on the English side of the website.

Francis is nominated for humanist of the year award. Only a humanist would place the individual human at the center of everything. Except of course if the individual human was just about to be born or if the individual human is old and frail and a burden on those that love him or her. Those individuals consume too much earths resources which everyone knows God created in limited quantities and He strictly
Intended to be doled out by pinheaded males and females. Ain't modernism great?

Here's the Catholic that got the ball rolling for Transgenders as a body dysmorphia disability. He was let go from a hospital system as a Pediatric ADD ADHD specialist because he wanted to paid as a Psychiatrist too. so at 54 after two wives and six children he decided to blame his loss of employment on his sudden decision to transgender..Years later he obtained an online shrink degree and he can diagnosis more children as gender and body dysphoric.
He was an important person in our parish.
The REAL story was far more interesting. Working the system is a career now.just look at how the wealthy elites have worked the system for their own children's "success".

Want to draw attention to Liz Yore's speeches that are on YouTube. She is a child advocate, specifically protecting children from the sex trafficking plague. She is one of the few strongly Catholic graduates of Georgetown U. Pat Buchanan being in that small group as well. Her talks are a great lecture and puts a lot of stuff out there concentrating on church prelates and the progressive movement.

This is another example of the Vatican either embracing the secular materialist mindset or appeasing it. If it's embrace, it's merely the logical extension of a paradigm that Vatican II started and enabled:

If it's appeasement, it won't work in the long run. The crocodile that is "the world" might eat the apostate Church last, but it will eat it. Just read Revelation 17.
