Argentinian Court Dismisses Transgender Man's Suit Against Catholic Church That Reused To Change His Name On Records

Church Militant reports on a lawsuit in Argentina by a transgender man who contends that Archbishop Mario Cargnello is required by Argentina's Gender Identity Law to change his name on Church baptismal and confirmation records.  When in 2018 the archbishop refused, activist Alba Rueda sued. A lower court dismissed the case saying it is a religious matter. On Nov. 14, an appeals court affirmed the dismissal. Rueda plans to take the case to the country's Supreme Court.
