So then, brethren, stand firm and hold to the traditions which you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by letter.—2 Thessalonians 2:15

National Post Article: Genderless Pronouns Not Likely to Stick
(CNSNews.com) – The Vancouver (British Columbia) Board of Education has approved a sweeping new policy for accommodating lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, two-spirit, queer, questioning and “all sexual and gender identities,” including the creation of three pronouns, replacing masculine and feminine with xe, xem and xyr (pronounced ze, zem and zur).
On broth-xyr.

Do you hear that shuffling of feet? That's the sound of parents lining up in droves to register their children in private and separate schools.

How much longer until the progressives demand that we change the text of Holy Scripture to conform to the norms laid down by the thought police? Oh, wait!—the rad-feminists have already won that battle. Hence, the politically correct New Revised Standard Version (Catholic Edition) that Canadians are subjected to in the Mass.

We are not just material beings, but spiritual persons with a need for meaning, purpose, and fulfillment that transcends the visible confines of this world. This longing for transcendence is a longing for truth, goodness, and beauty. Truth, goodness, and beauty are called the transcendentals of being, because they are aspects of being. Everything in existence has these transcendentals to some extent. God, of course, as the source of all truth, goodness, and beauty, has these transcendentals to an infinite degree. Oftentimes, He draws us to Himself primarily through one of these transcendentals. St. Augustine, who was drawn to beauty in all its creaturely forms, found the ultimate beauty he was seeking in God, his creator, the beauty “ever ancient, ever new.”―Sister Gabriella Yi, O.P.
