When the eyes and the mind are in conflict

Gender identity trumps every other right in Massachusetts high schools, giving new meaning to the story of the Emperor's New Clothes. Now, no matter how clearly the child in the story says what is before everyone's eyes, any glimmer of recognition will have to be suppressed. How long can that last?

When "the guidelines [imposed in Massachusetts] don't recognize that it is impossible to erase the differences between the sexes," you know there's a desperate need for Theology of the Body. And our TOB project here in Chicago is making real progress! A volunteer created the postcard design, and has just completed a trailer.

Here's the trailer; feel free to share it far and wide--we are counting on the grace of the Holy Spirit working through social media to invite people to take a real look at what the Catholic Church says about the human person, the human body and its "language." At this point, it is the only "alternate vision" available, no matter what our eyes may tell us.
