The Church of Sweden, Europe’s largest Lutheran community, has proudly declared itself a “trans” church in a letter addressed to transgender people and signed by nearly 1,000 members of the clergy and others affiliated with the church.

“We write to you from a church that is also trans,” the letter posted on the Church of Sweden’s official website begins. And it goes on to state with apparent pride its position:

“We have confirmed, employees, church wardens, elected representatives, non-profit organizations and other parishioners who define themselves as trans people. The church is also made up of trans people. Therefore, the church could be described as trans.”

The letter really gives the impression of being part of a marketing campaign of a company that intends to reach a certain group of customers; in this case, it seems to be looking for a new sector of followers to the Church but having forgotten the basic precepts written in the Bible.

The authors of the letter confront the so-called “transsexual feminism” in their statements, affirming: “We regret the part of feminism that has fought for its rights and now wants to limit theirs.”

So-called “transsexclusive radical feminists” or “TERFs” have been some of the staunchest critics of transgender ideology in recent years, and many are accused of transphobia by transgender activists.

“We see transgender feminism using rhetoric that we recognize from radical right-wing Christian groups and right-wing populists,” the authors state.

The so-called “TERFs” marked a fracture in the LGBT movement by simply asserting certain logical ideas such as that biological sex is real or that transgender people should not compete in sports with biological women. 

Last year Harry Potter author JK Rowling was attacked under that term after trans activists claimed the liberal feminist had made comments they considered transphobic, Breitbart reported in a timely manner.

The letter condemns any definition based on biological sex, asserting that advocating ideas such as a bathroom for each sex or separate sports competitions based on biological sex “contribute to the normalization of trans hatred.”

The ultra-liberal Swedish church is known for professing progressive causes; even some clergy members have also shown a fondness for Islam.

This is not the first time the Church of Sweden has drawn worldwide attention for its sayings or deeds. In 2019, the Church of Sweden in Malmo rang its bells throughout the city to support Greta Thunberg and her climate strike promoted by the globalist left.

This happened after the Church of Sweden literally proclaimed Greta as the “Successor of Jesus,” this is not an exaggeration; this really happened
