BOLIVIA (LifeSiteNews) — Catholics in Bolivia, both clerical and lay, are denouncing a government sex-ed program for schoolchildren that includes transgender ideology.
Father Pedro Flores, a delegate of the Educational Community of the ecclesiastical vicariate of Beni in Bolivia, condemned the program as “a perverted curriculum, which will pervert the minds of children.” Pointing to the manipulative way in which transgender lifestyles were being introduced into children’s education, Flores declared in a Jan. 20 press conference, “Under the umbrella of what sex education is, they want to present gender ideology and show, as if there were a third way, the identity of the human person.” The priest called on all Bolivians to oppose “such a perverse action as this.”

The radical LGBT agenda infiltrating the Catholic Church is persecuting another brave priest, who now desperately needs your help to speak on his behalf.
Fr. Joachim Wernersbach has been SUSPENDED by his abbot of the Benedictine Tholey Abbey for preaching against gender ideology and the heterodox Synodal Way — pushed by Pope Francis and the German Synod of Bishops.
Fr. Wernersbach is also suspended from performing pastoral activists in the surrounding parish, and is being subject to “an ecclesiastical investigation.”
We need everyone to speak up for suspended priest Fr. Wernersbach — the LGBT agenda cannot claim another brave and devout priest.
SIGN and SHARE now.
Pro-life and pro-family priests around the world are being silenced and cancelled, while pro-LGBT activists get hand-written letters from the Pope, like Fr. James Martin.
Fr. Wernersbach simply reiterated Catholic teaching in his Christmas homily: "You hear about gender and transgender, transhumanism and reproductive health, wokeness and LGBTQ, diversity and identity. Of multiple genders and gender reassignment, plus this devastating new understanding of revelation from the Synodal Way," he said.
"My dear friends, even the terms are absolutely disturbing. They all have one thing in common: they lack beauty, they lack coherence, and they lack naturalness. They are not aligned, not in harmony with the inconceivably beautiful Divine Order."
For this denunciation of anti-Catholic trends, Fr. Wernersbach has been suspended by his own abbot. The entire homily has also been removed from YouTube.
The systematic persecution of pro-life and pro-family priests must end now.
Demand that Fr. Wernersbach be restored to full priestly ministry and demand that his superiors STOP shilling for the LGBT agenda!
Good and faithful priests are being systematically cancelled — but you can raise your voice to stop the attacks.
SIGN NOW before it’s too late.
Fr. Wernersbach needs your voice!
German priest punished by superiors for preaching against gender ideology, Synodal Way
Similarly, the Bolivian Bishops’ Conference has urged parents to oppose actively the government undermining the moral education of their children. The president of the Association of Parents of La Salle School, Jeannine Vaca Cuellar, also called on parents to mobilize against the mandated curriculum, declaring, “We cannot allow the Ministry of Education to come and tell us how we’re going to educate our children.”
The new curriculum, announced in December by the Ministry of Education, was approved on Jan. 3 in a ministerial resolution governing educational and school management for 2023. The resolution takes effect February 1, the first day of classes for the year.
The Bolivian government’s program comes as the transgender ideology craze sweeps across nations in the West, with extreme leftists fighting in legislatures and school boards to indoctrinate and sexualize impressionable young minds, often even without parental knowledge, leading to the children’s moral, psychological, and physical harm.
