A Chicago Lutheran church generated major controversy when it allowed a seminar dressed as a drag queen to read a sermon to children in the sacred place of worship.
As The Western Journal reported last weekend, Aaron Musser, the preacher at St. Luke’s Lutheran Church in Logan Square, said that instead of telling people how they should be joyful, he was showing them what made him joyful.
“At the beginning of the service, I talked about joy as liberation or as freedom to be what you want to be and do what you want to do,” he commented, and invited the children forward to read them a book.
“So this is everybody’s first time that they’re ever seeing a drag queen?” he asked them. “Well, hello! I am also a boy most of the time when I’m here, but today I am a beautiful queen,” the man dressed as a woman told the children.
This is a controversial trend being promoted by pro-LGBT groups like the activist organization “Drag Queen Story Hour,” which urges men dressed in grotesque women’s clothing to read to children in public places like schools and libraries, endorsed by the state’s progressive and leftist wing adherents.
“Drag Queen Story Hour (DQSH) is just what it sounds like—drag queens reading stories to children in libraries, schools, and bookstores,” reads the Drag Queen Story Hour website.
It further says, “DQSH captures the imagination and play of the gender fluidity of childhood and gives kids glamorous, positive, and unabashedly queer role models. In spaces like this, kids are able to see people who defy rigid gender restrictions and imagine a world where people can present as they wish, where dress up is real.”
St. Luke’s Lutheran Church of Logan Square in Chicago, as its website indicates, is part of the more liberal Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA).
And as stated by Mount Calvary Evangelical Lutheran Church, the ELCA holds that “Scripture is not necessarily always accurate on such matters as history and science.”
Thus, the ELCA “that it lacks a consensus regarding what Scripture teaches about homosexual activity,” and furthermore “has also determined to allow the ordination of practicing homosexuals as long as they are in a life-long, committed relationship,” the site says.
Undoubtedly the progressive and leftist pro-LGBT agenda, which also pushes critical race theory, has burst into the church trying to degrade and dishonor its traditional doctrine. But what is most causing astonishment among its devotees is that the damage is being done from within.
And this is not the only case that demonstrates how the Church has transvestified itself and is trying to normalize its deviation.
A Methodist church in the town of Boise, Idaho, sparked controversy when it replaced this week a huge stained glass window that had the image of America’s founding fathers, Robert E Lee, George Washington and Abe Lincoln, for one with the image of Leontine Kelly, the country’s first black female bishop, wearing a scarf with the colors of the LGBT rainbow.
Leontine Kelly, served in the San Francisco Episcopal Area until her retirement in 1992, where she developed as a political-social activist advocating LGBT ideology.
Meanwhile, Isaac Simmons, known by his name “Mrs. Penny Cost drag,” became the first drag queen certified as a candidate for ordination in the United Methodist Church earlier this year, showing once again the decline in the moral values of Christian doctrine.
