The Episcopal Church embraces sex changes for children of ‘all ages’
“Resolved, that the 80th General Convention calls for the Episcopal Church to advocate for access to gender affirming care in all forms (social, medical, or any other) and at all ages.”

The Episcopal Church has officially endorsed medical transition for trans-identified children “at all ages” with the adoption of Resolution D066. It affirms the church’s support for “gender affirming care” of any type and for any age, including children.
The 80th General Convention was held in June of this year, where the bishops’ and deputies’ committees proposed 16 resolutions on topics ranging from abortion to election security. A final hearing was held in the evening on Resolution D066, that would call on the Episcopal Church “to advocate for access to gender-affirming care in all forms … and at all ages.” The resolution was proposed in response to the laws recently passed in red states to safeguard children from irreversible treatments and surgeries, that the Episcopal Church calls “anti-transgender legislation.”
Earlier this year, Rev. Gay Clark Jennings, the House of Deputies president of the Episcopal Church, sent a letter in response to Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s ban medical treatments for minors who identify as transgender, such as puberty blockers, hormone therapy and transition surgery, which he called “child abuse.” Jennings said in a letter to the House of Deputies that Abbott’s “reprehensible statement” on transgender adolescents “puts some of the most vulnerable children in our society, and their families, in grave danger.”
“Denying the full humanity of transgender people, putting beloved children of God at risk, and threatening to separate loving families is cruel and antithetical to the way of Jesus,” Jennings said. “We must do all we can to protect the children whom Governor Abbott has targeted to advance his own political standing and, more broadly, to stop the wave of anti-transgender legislation sweeping across the United States.”
Six people testified in favor of the resolution, including trans-identified clergy, parents of trans-identified children, and members of the group TransEpiscopal, a “group of transgender, nonbinary, and allied Episcopalians dedicated to fostering the full embrace of trans and nonbinary people,” as they describe themselves on their website.
From the Episcopal House of Deputies Resolution:
“Resolved, that the 80th General Convention calls for the Episcopal Church to advocate for access to gender affirming care in all forms (social, medical, or any other) and at all ages as part of our Baptismal call to ‘respect the dignity of every human being’; and be it furtherResolved, that the 80th General Convention affirms that all Episcopalians should be able to partake in gender affirming care with no restriction on movement, autonomy, or timing; and be it furtherResolved, that the 80th General Convention understands that the protection of religious liberty extends to all Episcopalians who may need or desire to access, to utilize, to aid others in the procurement of, or to offer gender affirming care; and be it furtherResolved, that this 80th General Convention supports public policies at the local, state, and national levels in all our countries to support gender affirming care.”“This is disturbing but not surprising. The Episcopal Church has been post-Christian for some time, and has fully bought into the premises of the transgender movement,” said Jonathon Van Maren for Lifesite News.
“The Anglicans have released pastoral guidance on how to perform a special ‘baptismal’ service for transgender people with their new name and chosen gender; the Church of England has sought to actively recruit transgender clergy; former Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams called on Boris Johnson to include transgenderism in his conversion therapy ban, despite warnings from experts who pointed out that it would actually prevent children from getting therapy they need to feel comfortable in their own bodies,” said Van Maren.
The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
