(via Courageous Priest)
On May 9, 2017 the Jefferson City Diocese held a meeting with all priests to present the new policy for transgender students. On May 11th, the policy was presented to all Catholic School principals of the diocese. This Diocesan policy will be the fundamental policy for every diocese with accommodating Bishops. Don’t be fooled, your diocese is next.
The result will be boys being in the girls bathroom. To stay up to date on this issue, bookmark 30 Pieces of Silver Blog!

To anyone who has been permitted to read this document, it is apparent that the diocese now plans to join the secular world in questioning the very binary gender system created by God Himself. Once we begin tampering with redefining what is clear to the naked eye or a simple genetics test, what comes next? Will biological boys be allowed in the girls’ restrooms? Will men who “identify” as women be allowed in my church’s restroom? Will we start entertaining trans-species, trans-racial, or trans-age? Where will the line be drawn?
If there is no security in knowing what we see, how can we expect anyone, much less these children to come to know God on a personal level? If there is nothing certain in the physical world, how can a person begin to grasp the truths of our Holy Catholic Faith? If they cannot even come to know God, how can they come to love God and serve Him? Ultimately, isn’t that going to worsen our vocations crisis? If the diocese chooses to “go with the flow” of the secular world, we will become like the fish that go downstream, dead.
