[Ed. – Can’t remember the pope’s political correctness balance at this point, but he’s definitely got some entries on the wrong side of the ledger.]
Pope Francis is making waves in the LGBT community again with his most recent comments comparing transgender people to nuclear weapons, saying both do not “recognize the order of creation.”
The National Catholic Reporter says the comments were made in a new book published called Pope Francis: This Economy Kills, which calls on Christians to preserve God’s order of creation.
In an interview with veteran Italian journalists Andrea Tornielli and Giacomo Galeazzi, the pope compares genetic manipulation and nuclear weapons with gender theory, a broad term for how people learn to identify themselves sexually and how it’s transmitted culturally.
“Let’s think of the nuclear arms, of the possibility to annihilate in a few instants a very high number of human beings,” the pope says. “Let’s think also of genetic manipulation, of the manipulation of life, or of the gender theory, that does not recognize the order of creation.”
