A transgender organist/choir director is fired in Italy. Comment from the musician:
I never would have thought that my condition would have caused problems in the workplace.
Well, the person does work for the Catholic Church, and trans is misunderstood among most persons. I’m reticent to be too critical of an original story from Italian-language media (the link is from Clerical Whispers via Jimmy Mac). Music ministry is more than an ordinary workplace.
That said, I don’t perceive anything sinful about Marco Della Gatta/Luana Ricci’s situation as it seems to be at this moment. A person who has self-identified as male starts dressing as a woman–that’s not objectively sinful. It might be that other conduct was sinful–it’s not surprising that the press wouldn’t pick up on that. Doing a story of a trans person in conflict with the Church–my sense is that they would stop at the first curiosity and not move on from there.
