“Let’s introduce ‘parenting awareness sensitivity’… It will help create a childbirth- and parenting-friendly environment.”

“We do not discriminate against homosexuality… However, the principle of creation is for a man and a woman to meet and form a family.”

(Seoul = Larose.VIP) Reporter Lee Se-won = In order to respond to the low birth rate problem, Yoido Full Gospel Church decided to actively work to create a social environment conducive to giving birth and raising children.

Lee Young-hoon, senior pastor of Yoido Full Gospel Church, held a press conference at a hotel in Jung-gu, Seoul on the 14th and announced that he would help transform Korean society into a ‘multi-incubator child-rearing community optimized for child-rearing.’

To this end, senior pastor Lee proposed introducing the concept of ‘parenting cognitive sensitivity.’

It is a concept based on what is called gender sensitivity, which refers to the ability to sensitively detect discrimination or imbalance that occurs due to gender differences in everyday life. It identifies the difficulties experienced by people in the process of childbirth and childrearing, helps members of society correct them together, and strengthens the capacity of the entire society. The purpose is to mobilize and support childbirth and childrearing.

Senior pastor Lee said, “It means that we as a society should take interest and take responsibility together from the time children are born to when they grow up,” and “It means that society should raise them in our arms with the same parental heart.” explained.

He said, “More than three times the number of abortions is occurring statistically,” and “If we just stop abortion, it will be solved at once.” He pointed out that preventing deaths from suicide and traffic accidents is also linked to the problem of low birth rates.

Pastor Lee also announced plans to use the 136 prayer places (prayer facilities) operated by Yoido Full Gospel Church throughout Seoul as a kind of care classroom and care school where children can stay after school. He added that they are also considering ways to use the first floor of Yeouido Daeseongjeon as a play area for children.

Yoido Full Gospel Church plans to produce and distribute a parenting cognitive sensitivity checklist and conduct promotional activities using social networking services (SNS) with celebrities.

As part of its response to low birth rates, Yoido Full Gospel Church increased the childbirth incentive it had paid since 2012 to 2 million won for the first child, 3 million won for the second child, 5 million won for the third child, and 10 million won for births after the fourth child. The church calculated that since 2012, 5.4 billion won has been spent on childbirth incentives for 5,016 people.

Regarding Pope Francis’ recent official approval of the ‘blessing’ of same-sex couples, and a Catholic priest’s blessing prayer for same-sex couples in Korea as well, senior pastor Lee responded, “We do not discriminate against homosexuals in our church.”

However, he added, “Homosexuality is not recommended in the Bible. Because the principle of creation is for a man and a woman to meet and form a family, I encourage a man and a woman to meet and get married.”

Regarding Yoido Full Gospel Church’s group viewing of the documentary film ‘National Foundation War’, which highlights the life and political journey of former President Syngman Rhee, at the church level, they said, “We have only heard one side too much, so we need to listen to both sides. Our country needs to hear both sides.” “The view of history is too biased to one side. Now we need to focus on facts,” he said.

In order to respond to the trend of expanding the social role of women, Yoido Full Gospel Church plans to appoint female elders (give teaching positions to those selected as elders) starting this year, having not produced a single female elder since its founding in 1958. First, we are considering recommending about 20 people.
