Fulvio Di Blasi explains why Saint Paul cannot be said to be pro-gender even if only in relation to the principle of equality.
Can we say that gender movement is a wrong answer to a just claim, and that St. Paul, having himself made this claim, wrote the first pro-gender manifesto in history?
In the letter to the Galatians, St. Paul writes: “For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. 28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free person, there is not male and female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus
” (Galatians 3:26-28).
There is no doubt that Saint Paul has intended to affirm the principle of the equality of all human beings in Christ, but can it be said, on the basis of that passage, that he has made the gender claim his own?
In this class, Fulvio Di Blasi recalls the meaning of the principle of equality and the logic that grounds the predication of the terms that express equality “claims.” In doing so, he clarifies that in no way it can be said that Saint Paul made a claim in favor of the gender movement.
Di Blasi also briefly reviews the concept of evil and the meaning of the ontological good, or the good of human nature.
