When I saw the document yesterday, I boiled over with anger.

Let people who keep trying to tell me that Pope Francis is a decent human being take note.

The anti-scientific garbage about surgical intervention for intersex children alone (recommended even against parental objection) makes this document foul and vile.

Francis calls us LGBTQ people depraved and disordered.

But when he and the Church he helms put their doctrines above the lives and well-being of innocent people, they show themselves to be the depraved ones.

I believe the Catholic Church in the US is well on its way to the same irrelevance that it’s sunk to in most of Europe.

Documents like this accelerate the process.
