Woman in jailShutterstock

(LifeSiteNews) — Many commentators have noted the insanity of gender ideology; fewer, however, have noted the cruelty of transgender policy in practice. One example of this is the fact that male criminals — many of them violent and dangerous — are increasingly identifying as female in order to get sent to women’s prisons. Vulnerable female inmates are finding themselves locked behind bars with rapists and lady killers.

As a result, desperate female inmates have attempted to call attention to their predicament. One woman says she was raped by a man pretending to be a woman — the rapist was in prison for murder. Prison officials demanded she retract her claim, recorded it as consensual sex, and then penalized the victim for filing a false rape claim. The rapist’s lawyer claimed he was a victim of transphobia.

In another instance, a California convict imprisoned for murdering infants claimed to be transgender and was successfully transferred to the female prison where the very women whose children he had killed were housed. An Illinois inmate alleges she was raped in prison by a man claiming to be a woman. In Canada, in fact, a prisoner who raped, tortured, and murdered a 13-year-old girl decided to identify as a woman and promptly got himself transferred to a female prison.

Despite these horrifying facts, few media outlets outside of conservative outlets have bothered to report on them. The complaints of women locked up with male murderers and rapists are largely ignored. And now, an unbelievably sadistic decision in the United Kingdom is being reported on by The Telegraph: Women who call the transgender convicts who end up in their prisons by male pronouns could actually get extra time in jail.

In other words, a woman raped by a man claiming to be a woman could be kept incarcerated longer if she refuses to call him a her.

These penalties, according to The Telegraph, would likely be determined “by an impartial adjudicator,” according to justice minister Lord Wolfson. Wolfson stated:

Incidents the place a prisoner makes use of incorrect pronouns for an additional prisoner will probably be thought of on a case-by-case foundation, consistent with the Prisoner Discipline Procedures coverage and the Prison Rules. Prisoners might generally make an sincere mistake in relation to pronouns and disciplinary motion wouldn’t often be acceptable in these circumstances. However, if an officer deems it acceptable to put a prisoner on report, the rule in opposition to ‘using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour’ – Prison Rule 51(20) – might apply. The adjudicator will weigh every incident by itself deserves. The policy stipulates that an offence motivated by another person’s protected characteristic(s) under the Equality Act 2010 is an aggravating factor and may merit referral to an Independent Adjudicator.

It bears mentioning that the extension of prison time is the most extreme punishment that can be meted out to inmates. That, says Wolfson, is because: “The Ministry of Justice and Her Majesty’s Prison and Probation Service are dedicated to advancing equality, eliminating discrimination, harassment and victimisation. As part of this, we ensure that all prisoners are treated fairly and in a way that respects their rights, and encourage them to act in a way that is respectful and considerate of others.”

The Knights of Columbus in Quebec have apparently begun to pressurize and bully unvaccinated council members and officers who decline to take the COVID jab.

Please SIGN and SHARE this petition to the Quebec Knights of Columbus, urging the Catholic men's fraternal organization to reverse course and stop penalizing Knights who refuse these unethical, untested and unsafe vaccines.

According to a letter obtained by LifeSiteNews, the leaders of the Quebec State Council of the Knights have seemingly implemented the following restrictions on unvaccinated members: 1) Effective immediately, unvaccinated knights shall be refused access to meeting and social venues; and, 2) Effective November 15th, any officer not "fully vaccinated" shall be relieved of his duties.

If true (and, there is no reason to believe it is not accurate), this Quebec Knights' policy is not only deeply flawed, but also deeply disturbing.

Indeed, the Catholic Church teaches that a Catholic may use his or her conscience to decide to licitly refuse vaccination.

And, while the Church is allowing Catholics to take these unethical vaccines because of the lack of an ethically produced and tested vaccine, it must noted that the Church IS AGAINST FORCED VACCINATION and vaccine mandates.

Therefore, it is difficult to fathom how a Catholic organization can penalize (and, in effect, try to coerce) Catholics to accept vaccines which have many morally and medically troubling aspects.

To start with, all COVID vaccines available to Knights Quebecois were either developed or tested using aborted fetal cell lines! This very fact should militate against penalizing Knights who cannot accept these jabs, in good conscience, as morally repugnant per se.

And, there are at least three other serious issues with the vaccines, namely:

  1. The vaccines are, themselves, unsafe. The WHO has already reported over 2.1M injuries related to COVID jabs, worldwide.
  2. The vaccines do not effectively stop transmission, and, in fact, probably facilitate transmission by allowing a vaccinated person to carry a large viral load which they can then spread to vaccinated and unvaccinated, alike.
  3. It is unwise to take and promote vaccines which have not undergone sufficient testing (animal, and otherwise), and which have no track record for possible long-term negative complications. Whereas most vaccines have taken between six and ten years to be fully tested and approved, these COVID jabs have only been given for less than a year -- and so, we do not know what the long-term effects will be.

With these issues in mind, please SIGN and SHARE this petition which calls on the Quebec Knights of Columbus State Council to reverse the draconian restrictions being placed against unvaccinated Knights.

The Quebec Knights of Columbus should be prepared to make reasonable accommodations for those members and officers who have decided to refuse these unethical, untested and unsafe vaccines.

After signing, please take a few minutes to contact the Quebec Knights of Columbus to politely, but firmly, ask them to reverse this decision which could seriously impinge on their fellow Knights' ability to follow their consciences in relation to taking a COVID vaccine.

Of course, the rights of women locked in prison with sexual predators and child-killers do not matter. And if any of them complain about their treatment or dare to point out the obvious about their new cellmates, the authorities will shut them up with accusations of transphobia and extra jailtime.

That’s not just crazy. That is incredibly cruel.
