Can a Man or a Woman Change Their Sex? 10 Points a Catholic Should Keep In Mind about the Transgender Issues

Last edited 28th April 2016

Simone de Beauvoir once said: "one is not born a woman, one becomes so" (on ne nait pas femme, on le devient). The idea follows then that sex is no longer understood as a given element of nature. It is not something that we receive, rather it is up for us to choose for ourselves.

Last edited 25th April 2016

For South Vietnamese veterans of the Vietnam War, April 30, 1975 was the day they lost their country.

But for South Vietnamese soldiers like Al Chi Hoang, the fight was far from over. In 1954 he and his family and left their home in North Vietnam on foot to escape the communist regime and had settled in the country's south. Then in 1971, Mr Hoang, a 19-year-old law student, was conscripted into the South Vietnamese army and began about 10 months of basic military training.

A Message from the Pope’s Field Hospital

Last edited 18th April 2016

Non-Catholics may be wondering why Pope Francis’ Apostolic Exhortation, “Amoris Laetitia” or “The Joy of Love,” has Catholics in an uproar. Has the Pope changed Catholic doctrine? Has he left the doctrine officially intact, but changed pastoral practice so much that the doctrine is annulled?

A potential liability of behavior modification is that our students are spiritual babies. For example, when our students aren’t sleeping around and we hold up abstinence as Christian value, we give them a false sense of maturity.
