Archbishop Coakley's Statement on Appointment of Father David Konderla as Bishop of Tulsa

"I am delighted that Pope Francis has appointed Father David Konderla, a priest of the Diocese of Austin, as the fourth Bishop of Tulsa. Bishop-elect Konderla brings tremendous pastoral experience, including his most recent ministry with college students at Texas A&M University. His engaging and joyful leadership will be a welcome addition to this ecclesiastical Province of Oklahoma City. I am looking forward to collaborating closely with him in the years ahead. 

As we welcome Bishop-elect Konderla, we acknowledge a debt of gratitude to Bishop Slattery for his dedicated and faithful service to the Church in eastern Oklahoma. He now enters into a new stage of his episcopal ministry. Both the Bishop-elect and the Bishop Emeritus will be in my prayers.”

It’s about more than restrooms

Archbishop Paul S. Coakley         May 29, 2016

Earlier this year I came across an “all gender” restroom in the airport of a large American city. I had never seen such a thing. I snapped a picture. It struck me as strange, certainly not something I would expect to find in Oklahoma, for example. That may be about to change.

The media have been highlighting recent legal attempts in some states to keep boys out of girl’s restrooms and vice versa. This latest restroom controversy is a manifestation of the new battleground over “gender.” This battle, however, is about more than who can use which restroom. According to rules just issued by the Obama administration, public schools ought no longer to differentiate between boys and girls based on their biological sex, but now ought to acknowledge and accept their personal “gender identity.”

Estoessobrealgomás que los baños

Arzobispo Pablo S. Coakley          29 de Mayo 2016

A principios de este año me encontré con un baño "todo género" en el aeropuerto de una gran ciudad americana. Nunca había visto tal cosa. Le tomó una foto. Me sorprendió como algo extraño, ciertamente no es algo que yo esperaría encontrar en Oklahoma, por ejemplo. Eso puede estar a punto de cambiar.

Los medios de comunicación han estado destacando los intentos legales recientes en algunos estados para mantener a los niños fuera de los baños de la niña y viceversa. Esta última controversia sobre los baños es una manifestación del nuevo campo de batalla sobre el "género". Esta batalla, sin embargo, va más allá de quién puede usar cual baño. De acuerdo con las reglas emitidas por el gobierno de Obama las escuelas públicasya no pueden diferenciar entre niños y niñas en cuanto su sexo biológico, pero ahora han de reconocer y aceptar su "identidad de género personal". Esta es la base para lo que les permite elegir cual baño usar.
