“The experience of incongruence in one’s sexual identity is not sinful if it does not arise from the person’s free will, nor would it stand in the way of Christian Initiation,” reads the document. “However, deliberate, freely chosen and manifest behaviors to redefine one’s sex do constitute such an obstacle.”
Based on what the Roman Catholic Church has always stood for, this is the position it has to take. As the biblical book, Romans says, according to my paraphrase, every human being is born with sin...a natural opposition to the will and way of God. There's no particular shame in experiencing "incongruence in one's sexual identity."
The question always is, how do you live. The greatest commandment, according to Jesus, is to love God.
Clearly, this message is counter culture...in the West...though not in most of the rest of the world. The message will be unpopular on the American coasts, where the following of the teachings and example of Jesus is considered rubbish anyway.
