I’m not a Christian but I did go to an Episcopalian high school, so I don’t want to get out over my skis, but as an outsider reading the news, the Church needs to bring back some of its Medieval practices.
Church worshippers cried ‘heresy’ at the Dean of Trinity College as they left a sermon claiming Jesus may have been transgender ‘in tears’.
But the view of a transgender Jesus is ‘legitimate’, according to Dr Michael Banner, the Dean who stepped in to defend the claim made at a Sermon last Sunday that Christ had a ‘trans body’.
Dr Michael Banner, the Dean of Trinity College, was backing up junior research fellow Joshua Heath, who displayed Renaissance and Medieval paintings of the crucifixion depicting a side wound that he likened to a vagina in front of the congregation.
The side wound ‘takes on a decidedly vaginal appearance’, said Heath, whose PhD was supervised by the former Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams.
I find this to be unintentionally honest, but not how the dean intended. The takeaway is that a “trans vagina” isn’t a vagina but a gaping flesh wound that is an assault on a healthy human body.
‘In Christ’s simultaneously masculine and feminine body in these works, if the body of Christ as these works suggest the body of all bodies, then his body is also the trans body,’ claimed the researcher.
In a letter to the Dean, one worshipper said: ‘I left the service in tears. You offered to speak with me afterwards, but I was too distressed. I am contemptuous of the idea that by cutting a hole in a man, through which he can be penetrated, he can become a woman.
‘I am especially contemptuous of such imagery when it is applied to our Lord, from the pulpit, at Evensong. I am contemptuous of the notion that we should be invited to contemplate the martyrdom of a ‘trans Christ’, a new heresy for our age.’
This is heresy. It’s also blasphemy.
It’s replacing Christian dogma with Woke dogma.
Christ was the son of God, born of virgin.
The presentation of the baby Jesus in the temple to fulfill the Old Covenant was the circumcision, the Brit Milah (Luke, Chapter 2). Jesus was a boy.
This “Jesus was transgender” bullshit is the attempt destroy the Church and replace it with Woke ideology.
This isn’t a new concept.
The Church uses to do this to other religions. Adopting peagan traditions like the Yule log at Christmas time (from the Druids) and fertility festivals into Easter was a way of converting peagans to Christians.
So what I’m seeing now is the same tactic used by the religion of Woke Pride against the Church.
First, Jesus is trans. Then once that lesson has been absorbed, Jesus will be written out and transgenderism will be new diety.
Woke Pride has done this to Native Americans already. To listen to them, you would get the idea that “Two-Spirit” Natives were revered spiritual leaders and mystical shaman.
I’ve seen this in Judaism, where the Left has called God transgender or non-binary. The problem is that the word we use in Hebrew for God has no gender or literal translation. But they try anyway.
The point being, it’s easy to see what Woke Pride is doing and loyal Christians need to stop it.
I’m tired of being peaceful with these people so my suggestion is to bring back the play book of Friar Torquemada.
When someone says from the pulpit that Jesus was transgender and his stab wound was like a vagina, don’t cry. Waterboard him until he confesses his blasphemy then burn him that the stake.
