Transgender people can’t be baptized unless they’ve ‘repented,’ Catholic diocese says

1 min read

In some ways, the diocese’s policy on transgender individuals mirrors how the church talks about same-sex couples, said Patrick Hornbeck, author of “More than a Monologue: Sexual Diversity and the Catholic Church.” The church teaches that being attracted to people of the same sex is not sinful but that acting on that attraction is. Similarly, Hornbeck said, the Diocese of Marquette seems to be suggesting that a person who thinks of their gender identity as a problem to overcome would not be barred from the sacraments.
