Pope Francis claimed transgender people as "the most dangerous evils"


Summary: Pope Francis and other high level Catholic officials have stated that the Church has decided transgender people, and acceptance of them, are some of the most dangerous evils on the face of the Earth. Pope Francis previously stated that transgender people are a “threat to the order of creation,” and compared danger of transgender people to nuclear weapons, stating: “Let’s think of the nuclear arms, of the possibility to annihilate in a few instants a very high number of human beings. Let’s think also of… of the gender theory, that does not recognize the order of creation.” In the author's opinion, Pope Francis is invoking genocide toward these people by completely deprive them of the identity as human

Reflection: This links back to our class discussions about definition for "Human". People always deprive others of their human rights by the excuse that others are not human.  We see the example of the mistreated native americans in The Light of Justice, and it is really important to see this still exists in cultural and religious aspects as a continuous problem.
