Patriarch Kirill condemns transgenderism

In a meeting with Russian business leaders, the head of the Russian Orthodox Church criticized transgenderism.

“The fact that marriage is considered to be between a man and a woman and that gender choice is not an intellectual choice, but God’s choice is being disputed,” said Patriarch Kirill I of Moscow, according to an Interfax news agency report. 

“Probably, some sick fantasy exists,” he added. “Of course, it can be said that this is a clinical case. And probably, this will be the most reasonable reaction. But this clinical case is protected by law in some countries. And children are taught this and are told: you should choose yourself whether you are a boy or a girl.” 

If the allegedly forthcoming Great and Holy Council wants to do something extremely useful, how about anathematizing the modern heresy of pansexualism from which all sorts of bizarre errors, like female ordination and homosexual marriage, flow.

I don't get the silence (beyond +Kyrill's notable exception) on this as well. It's nothing less than enabling a pathology, and neo-Gnosticism - the idea that there is some incorporeal, free-floating "humanness" generic to us all that happens to inhabit this or that body. Pansexualism is a deep, spiritual sickness. The sight of parents educating their children out of their God-given, instinctive repulsion to this is beyond tragic.
