Gay ELCA Pastor Tells Pro-Choice Congregants ‘Your Church Stands With You. Your Rage is Holy’

Javen Swanson is the chief impastor of Gloria Dei Lutheran Church in St. Paul, MN. A part of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America, the ELCA is a raging dumpster fire of blasphemy and perversion, and this worthless, irrelevant church is no different. Some of the denomination’s greatest hits include:

Church Holds’ Pride Worship Service’ Featuring all LGBTQ Songs

Woke Church Newsletter Invites Congregants To Help Pay for Abortions and Abortion Pills

Pastrix Says Jesus Called Syrophoenician Woman a ‘B*****’ + “Jesus Screwed Up, She Redeems Him”

Queer ELCA Pastrix Ordained With Drag Queen Nuns While Jennifer Knapp Serenades

With the progressive organization believing that “that abortion should be legal, regulated and accessible”, Swanson preaches a sermon to congregants upset over the removal of federal abortion rights, telling folk that the church at the highest levels of leadership feels their pain and urging them to channel their fury into fuel for the battle against pro-lifers ahead.

I want to start by saying directly to those of you gathered here and those of you watching online today who are angry or afraid for yourselves or for your daughters or your granddaughters or who feel betrayed by the Supreme Court. I see you. I hear you, and I stand with you. Your church stands with you. Your rage is holy, and that will provide much-needed fuel for the struggle ahead. The religious ideology behind Friday’s Supreme Court decision is not the Christianity I have committed my life to, nor is it the faith we claim in this church.

He concludes:

Following Jesus will be difficult and lonely, it is urgent, it will demand our undivided attention…As we live into this new legal framework, we can respond to and minister in the current situation, for instance, by ministering to individuals who seek abortions…and advocating for state laws that provide legal, safe and affordable abortions and against legislation that would outlaw abortion in all circumstances.

[Elizabeth Eaton, the ELCA’s head bishop] acknowledges that this is a daunting assignment. It will require more from us than most of us have been willing to give in the past. It’s going to be messy, and hard and uncomfortable. Today, I hear Jesus challenging the assumption that following Him to Jerusalem and bodying His love and justice and confronting the powers, is work that we can do at our convenience.

  1. There’s a special place reserved for those that use God’s Holy Name to lead the unwary and undiscerning to Hell…

      1. And if you think these wolves are rightly dividing God’s Word, you’re simply Biblically ignorant.

  2. Proverbs 24:25 “Those who rebuke the wicked will have delight, and a good blessing will come upon them.”

    Proverbs 21: 7 “The violence of the wicked will sweep them away, because they refuse to do what is just.”

    ‘Nuff said.
