Welcome to Episode 157 of the Being Human Podcast: For Those Holding the Line Between Two Extremes (A Gender Series Follow-Up)

This episode is for those standing on the middle ground between owoke liberal culture and traditional Catholicism; for those attempting to walk with those who struggle with gender confusion while at the same time upholding objective truth. In this follow-up to our recent Gender Series, Dr. Greg offers encouragement, consolation, and a way forward!


Discussed in the episode: 

  • What is the middle ground between woke ideologies and Church tradition?

  • The cross holding the tension between objective truth and the culture in which we live; 

  • How to follow Christ’s example of upholding objective truth while also entering into the pain and suffering of people experiencing gender confusion;

  • The importance of persevering in fighting the good fight;

  • Encouragement for times when the battle for truth feels lonely and exhausting;

  • The importance of remembering that every saint goes through moments of feeling abandoned and alone;

  • The meaning of compassion and mercy (misericordia) as a capacity to suffer with others;

  • Why the deepest evangelization happens through encounter and accompaniment;

  • Self-compassion as the first step to having compassion for others who are suffering;

  • The most loving and healthy thing you can do for others to attain ultimate happiness.
