Can a transgender woman be Christian?
Recently the Pope claimed that Transgender people are nuclear weapons. If this is true the transgender people are the weapons of the Devil. This argument is simular to the notion of same sex marriage will destroy hetero sexual marriges. Rational people will scratch their heads and the laugh at the absurdity.
Being that Pope Francis is the head of the Catholic Church, one has to see the underlying violence that is being sanctioned. oh you may say that his comments are not violent. Every year close to 350 transgender people are murdered every year. Unfortunately ignorant hate filled people will see the Pope’s comments as a license to violence.
Back to the question, can I as a transgender woman be Christian? I my view, yes because being Christian is not only faith but also action. If I follow the words of Jesus, am I not Christian? These are issues that will divide people and maybe it should be an issue that draws people together. Unfortunately the Pope and Conservative Christian leaders may not want to discuss this issue.
