The Bathroom wars are in the news: and some have noted that it is merely one item in a larger constitutional problem: the ability of government bureaurocracies to expand a previosuly passed law so that essentially it allows unelected bureaucrats to make laws (instead of Congress).
But how many are reporting the real agenda behind the bathroom kerfuffle?
It is about the deconstruction of gender: insisting men and women are the same and interchangeable. And this idea has many ramifications beyond bathrooms.
Lot of the feminist writings that discuss this agenda can be found quoted on theOtherMcCain website, but he is not PC: How dare he actually quote someone and ridicule them for being absurd.
But actually the Popes have noticed the problem, as far back as Benedict XVI, who the press hated.
But isn't it strange that the press missed the part of Pope Francis' letter that said the same thing?
from the very orthodox Catholic paper, the NCRegister:
Pope Francis has decried gender ideology for seeking to undermine the proper understanding of marriage, as well as human sexuality. He has called it “demonic,” compared it to the educational policies of Adolf Hitler and said it fails to recognize “the order of creation.”
and from the left wing NCReporter:
VATICAN CITY Pope Francis has strongly criticized modern theories that consider people's gender identities to exist along a spectrum, saying such theories do not "recognize the order of creation." Speaking of gender theory in an interview in a new book released in Italy, the pope even compares such theories to genetic manipulation and nuclear weapons.
..."Let's think also of genetic manipulation, of the manipulation of life, or of the gender theory, that does not recognize the order of creation."...In other it ignores reality, so is destructive of society and humanity.
and the story notes another rarely reported item: the push by the EU/US/Obama administration to push these theories on poor countries.
Francis' remarks on gender theory in the book follow similar remarks he made in a press conference on the papal plane in January in which he criticized what he called "ideological colonization" of less developed countries by those with more resources.
Recounting the story of a public education minister he knew who was offered money to construct new schools for the poor, Francis said to receive the money, the minister had to agree to use a course book with students that taught gender theory.
"This is the ideological colonization," the pope said. "It colonizes the people with an idea that changes, or wants to change, a mentality or a structure."
"It is not new, this," he continued. "The same was done by the dictators of the last century. They came with their own doctrine -- think of the Balilla [youth groups of Fascist Italy], think of the Hitler Youth."
