So this is what I'm to believe of Catholicism. Transgender student, bad. Child molesting priest, ok. Judge not, lest you be judged.

If you're so convinced of what it is you think you "know" of God and His will, then I'll tell you what, you hold on to yours, and I'll hold on to mine, and then we'll see when we get there. Agreed?

Clones are not produced through natural methods, the species that reproduce asexually do not produce clones, there are still mutations and differences between the offspring and producer. You need to learn a lot more about the real world.
Using labels as 'freaks' is one very good reason why transgender students;as well as,all transgender individuals are "bullied." There is a very good video on transgender teen problems: "The Gwen Araujo Story." A True Story!

One know-it-all filled with judgmental hate, and another filled with doubt and discouragement.
And it's supposed to be that the one who is trans is the one who is lost?
K, whatever you say, but I'll stay T-proud if you please.

Slow readers. It took a month to read it, Moby Dick took me about 2 months, and that one is actually good literature. If you read the bible yourself, instead of having bits spoonfed to you by a bias source, then you'd never once assert it as fact. Not once.

It is the one common thread of many atheists in the USA, we read the bible, then scratch our heads wondering why we allowed ourselves to be so gullible.:P

Transgenders are freaks that have mutated as a result of exposure to Hollywood and additives from the environment.
Stop projecting as the first line in your post. Transgendered have been around since the dawn of recorded history, and likely before that. They have been a huge part of many cultures, and the only reason they were purged from our infant culture in the West was because they were competition for priests and preachers, who preferred they got all the attention. Trangenderism is more a part of human history than being human is.

Transgenders were in the Barnum Bailey Circus Freakshow. Yes, some have been around for hundreds of years and more. They were freaks then and they remain so.
In Egypt they were considered chosen by the gods, even the priests would not defy a transgendered person's wishes.

In India they were, and still are, thought to be demi-gods, and people fear them so much they are allowed to wander where they please. Though they lack any rights to have a job and such, you don't dare harm one there lest you become cursed by the gods themselves.

In China they are revered.

In Japan they are elevated in status and aspired to.

In Inca they were priests.

In Aztec they were priests.

What you call "freaks" were thought to be the closest any human could ever be to a god by most cultures. So if you're religious, you should probably reconsider your idiotic notions.

Why are we fighting over words?

Let her call herself a "banana" if she wants to. Or a "bus" or a "fan". What ever. It makes no sense for anybody to get upset over mere labels. Granted, I would call her a she even if she calls herself a "he", because to me and to most people a "she" has a vagina and XX chromosomes. Maybe she disagrees. It's a free country and she can do that provided she keeps using the girl's restroom regardless and doesn't throw a tantrum whenever people use pronouns she doesn't like. If she really doesn't like it she can move to Turkey! They have one pronoun, "o" for both genders.

"Methinks you protest too much!"I think you should ask yourself this fundamental question: why are you even trolling on this blog if you know that the information ,therein, upsets you? Unless,of course, you are a curious "closet case" who is in complete denial of her sexuality?
I, also, must submit, judging from your comments, you have a limited understanding of science,medicine,Christian history, scripture and even your post Vatican II Catholic Christian faith.I think you need to go back to school to get educated ,and see a psychiatrist regarding your fear and sexuality instead of wasting your time and everybody else' s in reading and responding to these blogs because you are not contributing anything worthwhile except pointless and mindless rants.

Grow up you little brat.

There are no gods, souls, ghosts, devils or monsters under beds.

Stop acting like you are so special, because you aren't!

You are just like the rest the of us on this rock.

Protest to much, I'm a child of the 60's. Grew up protesting important issues. At least I stand up to for what I believe in. I just had to investigate this transgender crap for a better understanding of this freak show.
Transgender is wrong, it's an out right lie. Me get a life? I have a wonderful life. Ever wonder why your lives are so screwed up. Look in the mirror freak. It's not the way you were brought into this world. Keep it up and you may end up in the burning flames forever. Whats so wrong with the gender you were born with? Messing around with Gods creation isn't a very smart thing to do. Doesn't matter to me what you think. God wins in the end.

HA! Child of the 60's? That explains the delusions!
BTW, I'm pretty, I like the mirror now. Thanks for bringing that up.

Ha it's funny I don't actually believe that Catholicism is actually a worthy religion. Funny how that shit works out. Any religion that seeks to alienate any group of people and strip them of their rights is not worth the effort. It's a shame that so many people believe in such a merciless god. Oh well to each is their own I guess.
