Cardinal Müller: Transgender ideology is ‘self-mutilation,’ promoting it is a ‘serious sin’
Fri Apr 8, 2022 – 5:41 pm EDT By Raymond Wolfe
‘When the self-mutilation of mind, soul, and body is peddled ideologically and politically as an alleged “self-determination,” then that is nothing less than a serious sin against the well-being and salvation of children and young people,’ the German cardinal said.
Cardinal Müller was responding to controversy over an episode of a German kids’ TV program that sparked parental outrage for glorifying “gender transitioning.” …
“A trans person is a person who was born a girl, but is actually a boy, or the other way around,” a presenter, who opened with episode with LGBT “pride” flags, told the child audience.
Asked for his take on the controversy, Cardinal Müller spared no words, blasting the promotion of transgenderism as a “serious sin” against children and young people.
“When the self-mutilation of mind, soul, and body is peddled ideologically and politically as an alleged ‘self-determination,’ then that is nothing less than a serious sin against the well-being and salvation of children and young people who are in a process of maturing and finding their identity,” he said. “Hopefully, they have good parents and friends who encourage them to accept themselves as human beings in the manner of men and women.”
“According to the Christian faith, the baptized understand themselves in Jesus Christ as sons and daughters of God, their Creator, Redeemer, and Completer,” he added.
The eminent German prelate explained that a person’s nature as male or female is unchangeable and serves as a precondition for genuine love and the future of humanity.
“Man is born as a man, and not as an animal, plant, or raw material, without anyone asking for his consent beforehand,” he said. “Since male or female sexuality is part of the expression of our individual body, we cannot change it essentially, but either develop within it positively or rebel against it to our detriment.”
“The distinction between man and woman is positive,” he continued, “both for the individual and for the community (also for the succession of generations).” The two sexes are “the precondition for two people to love each other and say to each other: You alone and forever, until death do us part. In this way, they become husband and wife to each other; and then, if God so wills, also father and mother to their common children.”
The LGBT movement fundamentally rejects man’s immutable, God-given nature, Cardinal Müller observed.
“LGBT ideology is not about the dignity of individuals who feel that they are of the opposite sex, but is rather about the negation of the nature of human being as male and female in general, as God inscribed it into creation,” he said.
This anti-Christian, anti-scientific ideology, the cardinal added, “has succeeded in turning a persecuted minority into a persecuting one.” “It has been given a totalitarian position of power in politics, the judiciary, universities, and the media that is destroying religious freedom, undermining the rule of law, and trampling on scientific freedom.”
Cardinal Müller’s comments reflect those of Archbishop Charles Chaput, archbishop emeritus of Philadelphia, who characterized transgenderism last year as “the final rebellion against God.” …
From the Book of Truth:Man-made doctrine will not feed your soul
My dearly beloved daughter, when the world is under the spirit of darkness, it becomes very difficult for those who believe in Me, Jesus Christ, to stay true to My Word. When My Church falters, then the faithful will feel disillusioned with all that I taught and they will struggle in their faith.
It is not My desire that you divert your attention from the Word of God and when you do, you will not find Me Present. When My Word is not adhered to, and when you allow yourselves to be taken into a false sense of security – when sin is pushed aside as being of no consequence – then you will find it difficult to remain loyal to My Teachings.
Rise, all of you, and hear My Voice now as I tell you this. Everything that I taught you, as being Sacred, will be pulled asunder. Many of you will find it confusing when so many Teachings, given by Me to My Church, will soon be dismissed as being not for these times. The times you are facing ahead will bring much anguish, for you will not be given the direction upon which My Church was built. The edifice will crumble, the faith of My sacred servants will be weakened, beyond your capacity of understanding, and all Truth will be demolished. Man-made doctrine will not feed your soul. Only I, Jesus Christ, can feed you with the Faith, which will make you fit to follow Me. Whatever you are told, you must always remain true to Me, for I will always remain loyal to you.
When you separate from Me, I will be standing close to you constantly, trying to draw you back to Me. And while you may wander away and adjust your lives into accepting falsities, I will never desert you. And when you are completely lost, I will find you and bring you back into My Realm. I will never forsake you although you will forsake Me.
