Is this church pro or anti transgender? Like really. I'll see one article that suggests the Catholic church/Pope is affirming of transgender issues then see another suggesting that it's not affirming at all. Wish they'd just come out with it instead of playing games.

As a MTF catholic I'll tell you there is a lot of division within the church right now.

The conservatives (Pharasees and Saducees) will hold to their phobias and proclaim anyone that doesn't fit their very narrow definition as sinful.  Pope Francis simply says "Who am I to judge?"

I truly believe that should Christ make his second coming tomorrow, he would be all over the Curia like he was all over the Pharasees and Saducees roughly 2020 years ago.

I still practice and attend Mass most Sundays.  I don't advertise and yes I've received some negative comments.  If I had to describe it, I'd describe it this way:  The men don't notice and the women, mostly, don't care!

My belief is that God cares less how I present then s/he cares how I reach out to my fellow human.

The doctors that advised my mother that DES was the best option for a successful pregnancy didn't have the information to understand how the flooding my prenatal brain would affect me. 

I can't believe God would hold against me the choices I had to make to choose life vs. an early exit.

Yeah, I will admit that as a cradle Catholic (born and raised Catholic, and after 3 decades of swearing off church [at times god & I have a love/hate relationship - no, I've never been an atheist], I became a practicing Catholic again 2 years ago), I find the church's stance with regards to people like me rather frustrating at times.  Still, I always said that if I went to church again, it would be as a Catholic.  Like many Catholics, I feel the church has some flaws (like for instance, not allowing priests to marry), but not every church or churchgoer is lost in the 1950s (the church I got to is actually very liberal).  IMO, every religion has flaws (even the so-called "we're the true Christians" sects of Christianity - if they're so great, why do many of them have relatively small memberships?, you would thing people would be beating down the doors join).  View it as an overall thing, instead of "one issue decides all", thing, and then make your decision.  To me, the pope is only part of the Catholic experience, he is NOT the whole Catholic experience, so I based part of my decision to start going to church again, in part upon that thought.  Oh yeah, as a rule, I don't wear my transsexual past on my sleeve at church - it's really none of their business.

Well, back to practicing songs for the 5 pm Saturday mass (I play guitar in the church band).
