Catholic Bishops Celebrate Pro-Transgender “Day of Remembrance”
[Lifesite News] WESTMINSTER, England, November 20, 2018 – The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales told its social media followers this afternoon that today is the “Transgender Day of Remembrance.”
According to the Catholic Calendar of the Saints, in England today is the Feast of St. Edmund, King and Martyr. In other countries it is the feast day of St. Felix of Valois, St. Edmund Rich, and a number of lesser-known saints.
Nevertheless, the Catholic Bishops preferred to propagate to their flock a purely secular, and highly controversial, new devotion which was founded by a “trans” activist named Gwendolyn Ann Smith in 1999.
“Today is Transgender Day of Remembrance and we pray for all people who are ill at ease with their gender, seek to change it, suffer for it and have been persecuted, and also killed,” said the bishops’ tweet.
“All people are loved by God and are valued in their inherent God-given dignity,” it concluded.
The tweet was welcomed by American LGBT activist Father James Martin, SJ., who tweeted in response, “I join with the Catholic Bishops of England and Wales in praying for all transgender people, especially those who are persecuted in any way. May you know that you are all God’s beloved children.”
