(Christian Today) The Church of Sweden has declared itself pro-trans while also attacking feminists and so-called “radical right-wing Christian groups”.
In an open letter, the Church, which is the largest Lutheran denomination in Europe, said it was writing to the trans community “from a church that is also trans”..
“A church is made up of people. People are different. We have confirmees, employees, churchwardens, elected representatives, nonprofits, and other parishioners who define themselves as trans people. The church also consists of trans people.”
In addition to criticizing conservative Christians, the letter also takes a swipe at “trans-excluding” feminists, while saying that it wants to fight “narrow gender norms”. The letter has been signed by around 1,000 Church members, priests and deacons, and is published on the website of Västerås diocese.
It also accuses the media of being biased towards people with conservative views of gender, which it says has given rise to a climate of “hatred”.
“This contributes to the normalization of trans hate,” they claim.

A CALL TO ACTION
Enjoy our content? GREAT! Unfortunately, ad revenue for truth-telling websites has been severely hampered by censorship and de-platforming. This ministry isn't free to run, and finding people willing to support polemical theology is like trying to find a needle in a haystack.
So we have some great ways for you to EASILY support our work that will take less than 3 minutes of your time to do.
First, check our our page explaining this all at detail at https://supportpolemics.com
But in short, you can support us on Patreon and get exclusive rewards like the FULL non-truncated episodes of the bi-weely Polemics Report podcast ONLY available on your Patreon app. It's super easy to use. Get exclusive updates from JD. Get all that and support our work for only $5.95 a month. You'll also get a PAID subscription to 'The Insurgency' "banned news blasts" once a day for 50 news links to banned content you can't find in social media. For other patron tiers, you can join us live via zoom to interact with JD during the Bulldgomatic Bible study, get free theology books in the mail, and more.
Or, if you don't want to use Patreon and don't want the rewards, subscribe to 'The Insurgency' "banned news blasts" for free (three days a week) or $7 dollars a month (notice that's a dollar more than getting it through Patreon) or $70 dollars a year.
