Rev. Megan Rohrer is a pastor in the ELCA Lutheran Church who identifies as butch, dyke, queer, and transgender. Rev. Rohrer is the first openly transgender pastor in the Lutheran church. She recently wrote for Living Lutheran, the ELCA's official blog, about a trip with her "wife" to South America. She writes:
In Peru, our stay has been wonderful. One hotel owner, after learning we had the same last name, insisted we ...switch from two twin beds to a king-sized one. While there are some countries where you can still be killed for being LGBT, in others it is only our racism that convinces us that the
residents couldn't be as progressive as we are...
For one of the strangest interviews you'll ever read, see the "Butch in the Clergy" article below about whether Rohrer's congregation calls her "she", "he", or both.
This sad, sexual confusion, which Jesus desires to heal, is now given space and, thereby, affirmation on the ELCA website (you will find about 35 of Rohrer's postings at the ELCA blog there).
Once again, please pray that many will leave the ELCA for a more Biblical denomination which does not celebrate sin.
