In another glaring sign that nothing is sacred, a prominent New York City Catholic church hosted an exhibit entitled “God is Trans: A Queer Spiritual Journey.”
The obviously leftist Church of St. Paul the Apostle on Manhattan’s Upper West Side displayed the work which flies in the face of thousands of years of teaching. In fact, it was only four years ago when the Vatican contradicted this very doctrine.
In 2019, the Holy See’s Congregation for Catholic Education presented “‘Male and Female He Created Them’: Towards a Path of Dialogue on the Question of Gender Theory in Education.”
It clearly stated the Church’s position that transgender ideology is “fictitious” and that concepts of “intersex” and “transgender” lead to ambiguous and mistaken ideas of the differences between masculinity and femininity.
In other words, boys are boys and girls are girls. Basic stuff that has survived as truth for millennia.

Thankfully, many of the faithful want no part of the lunacy perpetuated by the progressive church.
One St. Paul’s parishioner told the New York Post that “the church should not be promoting this. I understand there are transgender people. I pray for all people but enough is enough.”
Yet others at the church reported they were happy with the stance.
Artist Adah Unachukwu, an intern for gay advocacy organization GLADD and a student at Fordham University, pointed towards the Christian need to “shed an old life and personhood.”
As if this basic tenet of Christianity could be somehow merged into claiming to be a different gender.
Unachukwu said the display asserts “there is no devil; just past selves. Identity is the most impactful part of the exhibition. What does holiness look like? What does your god look like? Are these two portrayals that can be merged?”
St. Paul the Apostle is hardly new to endorsing liberal ideology. The church advertises itself as a refuge for “LGBT Catholics.” On its website, it touts its program for gay Catholics called “Out.”
The New York Times saw fit to call it a “gay-friendly parish” and noted that it organized “gay happy hours” and bar crawls.
The basic tenets of Christianity are clear and not open for debate. When churches play God by rewriting the truth, they are harming the very people who look to them for spiritual guidance but instead, find false doctrines.
