New Papal Document Highlights Educational Crisis on “Gender Theory”

Posted inLocal News
The Congregation for Catholic Education has published “Male and Female He Created Them: Towards a path of dialogue on the question of gender theory in education.” The new document is intended as an instrument to help guide Catholic contributions to the ongoing debate about human sexuality and to address the challenges that emerge from gender ideology.
The Chairman of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops Committee for Catholic Education says he welcomes the release of the new document by the Holy See’s Congregation for Catholic education.
Bishop Michael Barber, SJ, of the diocese of Oakland, notes that “in a difficult and complex issue, the clarity of Church teaching, rooted in the equal dignity of men and women as created by God, provides the light of truth and compassion that is most needed in our world today.”
The document outlines both theological and scientific truths about the human person and will serve as a solid framework for those engaged in the ministry of Catholic education.
