Defending the family

Public Advocate welcomes Pope's Christmas message as he warns gender theory is a denial of God and the Bible

The gender theory, which is behind the homosexual revolution and the attack on the family was highlighted in Pope Benedict's Christmas message to Vatican prelates this morning. "There is no denying the crisis that threatens," the family "to its foundations - especially in the Western world," he said.

Crediting the Chief Rabbi of France, Gilles Bernheim, for the research, Pope Benedict XVI said "the attack we are currently experiencing on the true structure of the family, made up of father, mother, and child, goes much deeper" than was originally believed. "While up to now we regarded a false understanding of the nature of human freedom as one cause of the crisis of the family, it is now becoming clear that the very notion of being - of what being human really means - is being called into question."

According to "the 'gender' philosophy," explained the Pope, "sex is no longer a given element of nature, that man has to accept and personally make sense of: it is a social role that we choose for ourselves, while in the past it was chosen for us by society."
