Someone else posted something here on psychology . Do you think that the work done by LCSWs can easily be done by a trad priest in confession and or family and marital counseling? Are priest equipped to do this?
Here in California and in other states, it is illegal now for a priest to counsel a child who thinks that he/she should be the other gender.
Schools, social workers, teachers, and psychologists are all treating such a child as one needing gender transformation.
Yet, this is a serious sin to blame God for creating a person in the wrong gender. It is a sin of pride to think that one knows better than God. It is a sin of arrogance to think that one can do better than God. It is a sin against purity primarily although a young child may not realize this until much older.
For the people who convince such a confused child to undergo sex changes, it is akin to murder - spiritually, physically, and mentally as many who undergo such transformations chemically with hormonal therapy and surgically become suicidal because the results are not what they expected. The hormone therapy has its own side effects. The surgeries required also affect a person as drugs used during surgery and afterwards do have dangerous side effects. In addition, there may be infections due to the surgeries such as MRSA, etc. In other words, surgery always has risks for the child may die during surgery or shortly afterwards. In addition, that child may be scarred physically and emotionally from the surgeries.
It is interesting how surgeons, psychologists, social workers, and teachers think that they can play God without consequences. Unfortunately, they are damning themselves to hell for misleading children. It would have been better that these social scientists had never been born than to instruct a child to do something evil to his/her body, mind, and soul. It would have been better that a millstone be tied around the necks of these social scientists, and that they be tossed into the deepest sea.
