In his new letter on marriage and the family, Amoris Laetitia, Francis teaches that teaching kids about safe sex “promotes narcissism,” that transgender teens should just stop complaining and “accept their own body as it was created,” and that same-sex couples are not “legitimate families.”
Claiming that transgender teens are “self-centered” and “self-absorbed,” Francis said:
The young need to be helped to accept their own body as it was created, for thinking that we enjoy absolute power over our own bodies turns, often subtly, into thinking that we enjoy absolute power over creation.An appreciation of our body as male or female is also necessary for our own self-awareness in an encounter with others different from ourselves. In this way we can joyfully accept the specific gifts of another man or woman, the work of God the Creator, and find mutual enrichment.
In addition, Francis says that gay people should receive “assistance” to bring them back to “normality,” affirming that there are “absolutely no grounds” for considering recognition of “homosexual unions:
The transgended phenomenon is worth of investigation. Of Pope Francis no doubt the LGBTQIA community will retort, "Who is he to judge?"In discussing the dignity and mission of the family, the Synod Fathers observed that, as for proposals to place unions between homosexual persons on the same level as marriage, there are absolutely no grounds for considering homosexual unions to be in any way similar or even remotely analogous to God’s plan for marriage and family.
