Transsexuals can be baptized in the Catholic Church.

Can children of ransexual parents or gay parents be baptized?

Unfotunately the document published by the Dicastery for the Doctrine of the Faith in their website is in Italian and Portuguese signed on Oct. 31, 2023 by Pope Francis and by Cardinal Víctor Manuel Fernández, prefect of the Dicastery for the Doctrine of the Faith.

We know the reason why it is in Italian and the reason why it is in Portuguese is that it is a response to the question raised by the Bishop José Negri of Santo Amaro, Brazil.

Here are some paragraphs translated in English.

A lot of ultra traditionalist and some catholics reacted negatively on this response but personally, I do not find any error which the Pope can be charged of heresy. The key to the answer is repentance, regardless of the gave sin committed and the promise of the person not to sin again. Just as Jesus said to the prostitute – Go and Sin No More.

Actor Evangelo Bousis and fashion designer Peter Dundas have their children baptized in July 2022 at the Orthodox Church which caused an uproar to the Orthodox catholic community.
