Pope Francis is delivering another robust denunciation of liberal transgender ideology sweeping the West, declaring it was the “ugliest danger” while urging the world to embrace the differences between men and women.

“Erasing differences is erasing humanity,” the pontiff declared Friday in Rome. “Men and woman, however, are in a fruitful tension.”

The Roman Catholic pontiff used a conference on anthropology to address the rise of transgenderism and other leftist ideologies that try to erase or minimize the differences between men and women.

“It is very important that there is this meeting, this meeting between men and women, because today the ugliest danger is gender ideology, which cancels out differences,” the Pope told the audience

The pope has raised warnings about transgender ideology since  2016, saying it posed a colonization of humanity that was dangerous.

But the church last year declared that transgender people could still seek baptism.
