Surge Summary: Pope Francis has called out foolish gender ideology which says there are essentially no differences between males and females. That reckless movement is nothing less than an attack on marriage, the family and children.

by The Ruth Institute

“We were delighted to see Pope Francis deliver a stinging rebuke to gender ideology,” said Ruth Institute president Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D.

In an interview with the Argentinian media outlet La Nacion, the Pope called gender ideology, “The most dangerous ideological colonization today” by “virtually eliminating the differences between men and women.”

Morse agreed: “Gender ideology holds that there are no differences between men and women. When President Biden’s Supreme Court nominee, Ketanji Brown Jackson, was asked to define a woman during her confirmation hearings, she demurred, saying she wasn’t a biologist.”

“By the same ‘logic,’ if someone asked her what a house was, she’d have to say, ‘Why ask me? I’m not an architect.’”

“Almost everyone in the Biden administration has embraced this lunacy – that if a man says he’s a woman, he’s a woman, and anyone who challenges him is ‘hateful,’” Morse remarked.

“Not only is this perspective unscientific, it’s also un-biblical. Genesis 1:27 says God created man in His own image, ‘male and female He created them.’ This is the foundation on which society rests – that it’s composed of men and women.”

“But gender ideology says there are no men and women, just ‘birthing persons’ and individuals with penises. If you can get someone to go along with this, you can get them to go along anything,” Morse said.

“I’ve often wondered how proponents of abortion can speak of a ‘woman’s right to choose,’ when they can’t say what a woman is?”

“But this is only the beginning. Gender ideology also includes unrestricted access to abortion, the dissolution of marriage, and the sexualization of children.”

“Pope Francis is right,” Morse said. “Gender ideology seeks to destroy the family by erasing the social and legal distinctions between men and women. And it needs to stop.”
