“ People do not choose their gender , as the Vatican claims, they discover it through their lived experiences.” He said the Catholic Church should encourage this process of discovery, saying it’s “a process by which individuals discover the wonderful way that God has created them”.

ROME — Warning of a society “without sexual differences,” the Vatican on Monday dismissed the idea that a person’s gender can differ from the assigned sex at birth and said a fluid idea of identity was not “based on the truths of existence.”

The right to “choose one’s gender,” the Vatican said in an official document, is in “direct contradiction of the model of marriage as being between one man and one woman.”

But LGBT members of the faith said it put an official and updated stamp on viewpoints they had hoped were changing.

“This casts everything back to the Dark Ages,” said Marianne Duddy-Burke, the executive director of DignityUSA, a group that advocates for LGBT equality and inclusion in the church. “I think it is incredibly insensitive, to be talking still about gender and sexuality as a choice and a momentary whim rather than a fundamental God-given identity.”

DeBernardo added: People do not choose their gender , as the Vatican claims: they discover it through their lived experiences. The Church should respect and encourage this process of discovery, because it is a process by which individuals discover the wonderful way that God has created them.”

(Photo by Franco Origlia/Getty Images) The document, released by the Vatican office that deals with education, coincided with a month of Pride festivities in many countries around the world. It was not signed by Francis, but rather by two other higher-ups — Cardinal Giuseppe Versaldi and Archbishop Angelo Vincenzo Zani — in the Roman Curia, the Vatican’s bureaucracy.

The church’s retrenchment hints at one of the challenges it faces at a time of growing secularization — when many of its teachings on sexuality are being ignored as out of date. Francis has expressed an interest in outreach to LGBT followers, but he has also taken a clear stance on gender identity, decrying the idea that children are taught in schools that “everyone can choose his or her sex.”

The Vatican has released a new document challenging modern conceptions of gender identity. The 31-page teaching guidance, released on Monday, is titled Male and It speaks of an "educational crisis" and says the current debate can "annihilate the concept of nature" and destabilise the family institution.

“And this is terrible,” Francis said in 2016.

The church on Monday said it was important to listen and “understand cultural events of recent decades,” but it also described a crisis in sexual education — a “disorientation” that was destabilizing the family and canceling out the differences between men and women.

VATICAN CITY — The Vatican has issued a document rejecting the idea that people can choose or change their genders . The document issued Monday – during LGBT pride month – is the Vatican ’s first on gender theory. In it, the Vatican also insists on the sexual complementarity of men and women.

“It is precisely within the nucleus of the family unit that children can learn how to recognize the value and the beauty of the differences between the two sexes,” the document said.

(Photo by Franco Origlia/Getty Images) Traditionalist groups lauded the 31-page Vatican document, entitled “Male and Female He Created Them.” CitizenGO, a conservative Madrid-based group that campaigns around the world, called the latest church teaching an “extraordinary guidebook.”

“This authoritative tool is quite clear in the condemnation of gender ideology and of the grave damage it wreaks inside society,” the group said.

Father James Martin, a prominent Jesuit who has advocated for the church to more openly welcome LGBT members, said on Twitter that the document calls for dialogue and listening “but sets aside the real-life experiences of LGBT people.”

“Sadly,” Martin wrote, “it will be used as a cudgel against transgender people, and an excuse to argue that they shouldn’t even exist.”
