That’s a trans-Catholic school. It identifies as Catholic, but it’s lying.


Which is weird to me. The pope has made his opinion on transgender pretty clear (okay, not really as clear as this student has made his, but he has said something on the matter) so you'd think a Catholic school would do what their highest boss says ... wouldn't they?

But well, "woman" used to be clearly defined, too. If a penisperson can be a woman, then I guess someone who believes that penispeople can be women can also be a Catholic.

There's practically a damn committee dedicated to misinterpreting the pope.

"I don't want you to go to hell." And "What you are doing is bad for you." And "I know people treat you poorly." And "I love you and want you to stop."

We are in such a black and white society that they can't imagine someone possibly having compassion for someone and also admonishing them for sinning.

So, if someone is too powerful to cancel, they just twist his words until they can delude themselves that he agrees?

Makes me wonder why they didn't try and interpret Rowling as agreeing with them. Might have been better for them in the long run. (I mean, they did delude themselves that she was for males in women's spaces for a long time despite Hogwarts dormitories being explicitly sex segregated. But they changed their strategy pretty quickly when she liked a feminist post)

Yes, I was half wishing last night these twerps could be excommunicated, but they wouldn’t care.

There's a woke "Catholic School" in NYC that made headline for abolishing Christmas, like staff and students had to adopr Newspeak and not say Christmas, or mother and father. Forgot what woke words they told people to use instead. And to not celebrate Christmas but winter solstice or some shit. 🤷‍♀️

Wh... what does that school do regarding their own religion's prayers?

Would they modify Hail Marys and the Lord's Prayer?

I would imagine being a Catholic school they have a decent number of students attending that come from Catholic families that would teach them those prayers. Some student would tell their parents about changing words around. Some sects take specific wording very seriously.

Reminds me of the United Church minister who was an atheist. ¯⁠\⁠(⁠°⁠_⁠o⁠)⁠/⁠¯

Woke 'Catholic' school. Wow. Sounds like some larping neopagan crap.

But what do they call the priest, if they can’t use Father? I can’t imagine any priest would be happy with a woke term. And then it’s pretty hypocritical if they can’t use the word father for an actual father, but can for a priest. Same with nuns for Mother/Sister.

What about Mary, can she be the mother of Christ, or just his parent? Is it now Parent, Son, and the Holy Spirit? Christ on a bike


Poor Catholics, the word has become as meaningless as "woman".

For those of you who are not familiar with the Canadian school system, I just wanted to point out that here in Ontario (and in about half of the rest of the country, too), Catholic school boards are (unbelievably) publically funded. So, this is not a private school, in case that matters to you (it does to me).

Does Ontario have actual private or religious schools that aren't on board with gender ideology? Or is that outlawed?

Yes - there’s any number of private schools, and some of them are religious (along with Montessori, Waldorf, and then the old-school rich kid style ones). And then the publicly funded options are normal public, separate (Catholic), French immersion, French first language, and French Catholic.

I hate that trans individuals can say who makes them "upset" and get institutional support in avoiding that person, but women and girls saying what makes them feel unsafe are told they're bigots.

I’d go even farther and say MALE trans individuals. Most likely because that’s what’s mentioned.

What he expressed isn't even a religious belief...it's a biological fact. In any event, Canada isn't representing the catholic church accurately.

“I got suspended for comments made during a class discussion,” said Josh in an interview. “It was about male students using female washrooms, gender dysphoria and male breastfeeding. Everyone was sharing their opinions on it, any student who wanted to was participating, including the teacher.”

” I said there were only two genders and you were born either a male or a female and that got me into trouble. And then I said that gender doesn’t trump biology.”

James Kitchen, a lawyer from the Liberty Defense Fund which is representing Josh, said in a statement that the student was told he could only return to school “if he agreed not to use the ‘dead name’ of any transgender student and agreed to exclude himself from his two afternoon classes because those classes are attended by two transgender students who disapprove of Josh’s religious beliefs.”

Josh said he had never “dead named” anyone, that is referred to their previous name before transitioning. “Compelling Josh to utter falsehoods regarding gender contrary to his beliefs and segregating him from classes are repugnant manifestations of religious discrimination,” said Kitchen.

I just don't even know what to say. Even the religious folks have lost it.

I feel (lol) very sad that they have to use religion for this belief. I’m more live and let live but the more the trans community treats people like this the worse the backlash is going to get.

I think Catholic schools are the most likely to be safe, but just the name "Catholic school" doesn't make them safe from this!
