Gender bender booted

Jan 6, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: New York Post

A Queens Catholic-school teacher says he was fired for breaking a previously unknown 11th commandment - thou shalt not appear too ladylike in class! Mark Krolikowski claims he was branded as "worse than gay" and relieved of his responsibilities after he admitted to school officials two years ago that he was transgender, according to a new lawsuit.

What do you expect from a Roman Catholic institution that follows backward Vatican doctrine that considers, teaches and preaches that LGBT people are "disordered." As for transgender Roman Catholics, the RCC canons prohibit any change to a transgender person's baptismal record from the one they had at birth, and as such, cannot truly reflect the real gender of that transgender person that they presently present.

People tend to want clear-cut definitions because if you can define something you can control it; when they are confronted with shades of grey it threatens their sense of control not only over the world but themselves- and who they see themselves to be.

Do people still have the right to disagree with your view of the universe? Or is that just a little TOO "diverse" for YOU to handle.

Search yourself and you'll find plenty of "prejudice and obscene bigotry".

This shows what we're faced with on an almost daily basis. Just for being who we are!

oh this is a sad situation on all fronts.

It could have been prevented (on all fronts)
if the teacher would have been following what
God wishes.

Christians have an obligation to speak the truth
as written by God. It is not bigotry or mean.

What WOULD be bigotry or mean would be to let
the teacher continue as in the past without saying anything.

When this teacher comes to the end of natural life
and passes through death's door, THAT is when the total realization of the life on earth will be
pressed up against the pure holiness of God.
Can you imagine the extreme horror that all of a sudden knowing all the whole life on earth was not God's way as previously thought?

How tragic!

The church does not wish to be a Simone Cowl all the time. There is some responsibility that rests in individuals to seek out, learn, and follow what it is that God wishes.

One way around that would be to excomunicate yourself from the church then go to a different local and apply for membership. Presto! They would never know.

Imprtnrd thinks that it is okay to 'get around' what God wishes.

Just think of this? How will it be to "get around" and then face God once through death's door and learn
that "getting around" really was a pretty awful thing to do.

It is too late once through the door!

So, telling this person to "get around"...is that a
right thing to tell someone? Knowing yourself full well
what they will see once through the door?

No, They don't-they have the right to either assimilate that truth as part of their own personal expression or not, but they do not have the right to assume that their own definitions of the world are the only ones that are possible and the only "correct" way of living, or demand conformity to them.

You have NO clue what God wants for another person. Just what you've been told over the years. So, in YOUR mind it is wrong.

Interesting! The more traditional catholic view I take it! I never could see the point of such a doctrine myself, but then I'm not catholic. Think about this, Jews who have the same Pentateuch and Old Testament as Christians are coming around to accepting Gay and Transgender people as Rabbis and such. In Levicticus and Deuteronomy is where we find the admonitions against Homosexuality and cross dressing and Jews are ignoring these laws! Could it be that they see how ridiculous and unworkable they are? They are about four thousand years old. Moving up the timeline to the first century and the New Testament and Jesus. In the book of Matthew, Matthew 19:12, we have Jesus declaring that there are three kinds of eunuchs (Eunuch is a Greek word meaning a tree with out fruit) Jesus goes on to describe the three types ending in "those who make themselves eunuchs" and Jesus said there is a special place in heaven for them. Furthermore, in Mark, Jesus tells the disciples to pluck out your eve or cut off your hand if it offends thee. So Jesus could see the misery that being transgendered brought and told people that it was all right to alleviate this suffering.

The wishes of God for ALL people are laid out in His Word. I read The Word and pray that it saturates my actions and my thoughts and my principles. I fail, sure. But, I do listen to what He has to say
and don't just try to 'get around''cause I know that my death's door is coming---just like everyone's death's door is coming.

I agree with RubytheDyke.
What is great difficulty is the attempt by anyone, really, to eliminate freedom of choice ---a gift from God.
God tells all people through His Word what His wishes are and then sits back and lets them decide if they would like to follow that. If not, then God
labels that 'sin'. And, what is even more wonderful, is that God already knows that All will sin, so he sent His Son, Jesus the Christ, to unlock
the passage to Heaven for us! Without Jesus, the Christ, All would not be allowed into Heaven.
It is God's domain to put forth His Truth.
And any other 'truth', well, it just isn't Truth, then.

This is just meaningless, oft repeated church dogma. The Catholic church denied the people any knowledge of the bible prior to recent times. People relied on the church to give them the whole truth and it didn't. Give us a break!

It's also self-deceptive to believe your particular understanding of "God's truth" is the only" right" understanding there is. "God's truth" has been interpreted many different ways by many different people throughout history and within cultures.
