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

Two years ago, Dawn Bennett became an ordained ‘pastor’ in the thoroughly apostate Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (ELCA,) in what is perhaps the strangest ordination ceremony we’ve ever seen. Bennett, who is a self-described she/her bisexual, queer woman, routinely trades places with Rev. Lura Groen to see who is the worst pastrix in the denomination.

For a long time Groen held the title after advocating for polyamory and premarital sex, but then Bennett attended a Pride parade topless with just body paint covering her breasts, which is difficult to compete with in terms of pure flagrant degeneracy. 

Bennett, who ‘pastors’ The Table church in Nashville under the leadership of Bishop Kevin Strickland in the Southeastern Synod, has a long record of LGBTQ and pro-abortion activism, but it is her ordination ceremony that truly is unforgettable.

During her induction into the ELCA, a black choir belted out gospel tunes on one side of the sanctuary. On another, ten drag queens dressed as nuns, The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, sat and cheered. These performers are an LGBTQ+ protest group that uses” religious imagery to call attention to sexual intolerance and satirizes issues of gender and morality.”

The lecterns (those who read the scripture for everyone) comprised a “pagan wiccan priest who loves Jesus,” an agnostic best friend, and a gay pastor.

While they took communion, Former CCM star Jennifer Knapp sang some of her “old stuff” over them. Communion occurred while wearing her rainbow-colored sneakers- “holy shoes” that she only wears while she preaches to remind herself of the necessity of radical LGBTQ inclusion.

Her vestments were smattered with rainbow stripes and accessorized with rainbow pins.

She was prayed over and blessed by an assemblage of theologically aligned ELCA-ordained ministers, rejoicing as they laid hands.

Unsurprisingly, following her ordination, her first Easter sermon was not about the resurrection of Jesus, but rather about not being afraid to affirm one’s true, authentic gay/transgender self while praying to “Holy Father, Holy Mother, Holy Parent,” thanking…” They….for our collective queerness.”

If our audience knows of any worse ordination, or any worse ELCA pastrix, let us know. We’re sure they’re out there.
