In recent years, gender ideology has pervaded education, athletics, popular culture, politics, and even the workplace. How do we respond to this movement in a way that recognizes the God-given physical reality of being created male or female while also respecting the human dignity of those who struggle with gender dysphoria? FCCB’s Ken Kniepmann, associate for health, and Michael Barrett, associate for education address how Catholics can provide a solid anthropological, scientific and pastoral response, especially in cases or environments where youth are influenced or affected by these issues. Michael Sheedy, FCCB executive director, moderates the discussion.
This episode of Catholics Across the Aisle was recorded live as a presentation at the 2022 Florida Culture of Life Conference, hosted by the Diocese of St. Petersburg. The audio has been edited and formatted for this podcast.
