ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH DECLARES WAR ON TRANSGENDER PEOPLE
POPE DECLARES WAR
The rhetoric being used demonizes transgender people, while the repeated use of “colonizing” language is a dog whistle to politicians in nations where past colonialism is still a source of anger and resentment. The goal of the Catholic Church is to goad these countries into legislating their transgender populations out of existence, while not directly telling them to do so. Thus, in the aftermath of the human rights disaster, they will have some degree of culpable deniability because they never actually told them to do it, or suggested specific laws.
