Confused children? No, it’s the Church

IT WOULD seem pretty safe to suggest that there is no shortage of problems facing us all to which an institution as far-reaching and influential as the Church of England should be directing its attention.

The huge numbers of children who have no solid family background or support; declining moral values; the coarsening of our society; the number of children living in poverty and increasing crime rates would seem decent starting points.However, in what will surely go down as one of the most ill-advised acts of unwarranted virtue-signalling ever by the Church (and, unfortunately, it’s quite a lengthy list) last week it decided that it had to get involved in the debate over what uniforms “trans” school pupils should be permitted to wear.

Yes, even the Church has now been dragged into this tiresome debate that has been so skilfully stirred up by the Trans lobby, one that seems to be growing in strength on a daily basis.

In instructions to 4,700 CofE schools, the Church has said uniforms can “create difficulty for trans pupils”.

It goes on: “Pupils need to be able to play with the many cloaks of identity… children should be at liberty to explore the possibilities of who they might be without judgement or derision. For example, a child may choose the tutu, princess’s tiara and heels and/or the fireman’s helmet, tool belt and superhero cloak without expectation or comment.”

Let’s get one thing absolutely straight. Anyone, child or adult, who is experiencing issues concerning their gender is deserving of all the help and assistance we can provide.

However, this strident determination to try to influence children when they are at such a tough and tender age is distinctly dubious. Since when was it the role of the Church to try to encourage little boys to wear high heels?
