These people aren't Catholics.

The North American Old Catholic Church (NAOCC) claims to be Old Catholic, following the teachings and polity of the Union of Utrecht. However, the jurisdiction is not a member of the Union, and the Union does not recognize the NAOCC as a representative of Old Catholicism in the United States. Officially, the Union of Utrecht maintains a presence in the United States only through the Episcopal Church.

It is amazing reading all the ignorance of people and sand their aposts and their self righteous indignation. I am glad th Old Catholic Church does not fall under the authority of the pope. If you hypocrites will remember they still have failed to address the child sexual molestation issues. I am proud of this man pledging his service to the the love and service of Jesus Christ.

95% of the world doesn't believe in a god or even multiple gods. That is a figure you pulled out of no where but your mind. 99.8% of everything that has lived on earth is extinct!! So these invisible people have made no effort to help us or save there loyal billions as you have it.

You have twisted the comment I made to serve your cause, which is very typical of those who can't comment straight up. What I said was:If there is no after life, 95% of the world's population has been hoodwinked. The odds my friend, are not in your favor. Where did I mention God or multiple gods? You chose not to believe, that is your business, but it would appear based on the number of religious sects around the world, more than you think, are believers of some sort. Just a fact Jack!

Well there are 29000 deities worshipped on this earth today. So that means my dunce pal that one group is right or none of them are. Throw that in with zero contact from the gods who only talk to people who ask you for money in gods name. He made the universe but just can't handle money. You need to rely on yourself not things that are as real as mother goose stories. You are a typical dope who really believes that something is controlling your life. You control your life not that nasty Satan or a false god.

Those same odds you write about don't have ANYWHERE near that percentage for your specific God...

Odd, you're either unaware of that reality or a complete pompous fool....

I'm going with pompous fool, based on your postings.

When it comes right down to it, this whole thing is moot. There is no such thing as transgender. You are born either male of female. Chromosomes and DNA don't lie and at this time we don't have the technology to make that go away. (yet)

then what do you call those born with BOTH genders?

http://www.isna.org/faq/what_is_intersex “Intersex” is a general term used for a variety of conditions in which a person is born with a reproductive or sexual anatomy that doesn’t seem to fit the typical definitions of female or male. For example, a person might be born appearing to be female on the outside, but having mostly male-typical anatomy on the inside. Or a person may be born with genitals that seem to be in-between the usual male and female types—for example, a girl may be born with a noticeably large clitoris, or lacking a vaginal opening, or a boy may be born with a notably small penis, or with a scrotum that is divided so that it has formed more like labia. Or a person may be born with mosaic genetics, so that some of her cells have XX chromosomes and some of them have XY.
.
the last sentance also refers to those who are born as human http://io9.com/5911357/theres-a-good-chance-y... Chimerism, the phenomenon of having parts of a body made from a completely different being, is a much more common occurrence than previously thought.
