When you compare the documents, they’re basically the same.  The documents attempt is to really redefine gender.  We say that any kind of policy like that, that seeks to redefine gender, is flawed from its inception.  You can’t redefine gender.  God has defined gender.



The fight for and against the gender policy is very real in all corners of the world. Fr. Taylor explains of one incident within the Trinidadian Government that occurred last year.

First of all, they fired the minister, because she was pushing it so strongly, and trying to get the Cabinet to agree to it.  They fired her, because they couldn’t do anything else with her.  She was kicked out the door.  The new minister who came in after that, she waited a few months to reintroduce the policy, which tells us that this is an international agenda. Because if you fire one minister, why would the next minister pick it up again?  But that minister under pressure, again from the Inter-religious Organization, she backed down.  She said, “Very clearly the Government is not pursuing this any more.”
