An ELCA pastor's LGBTQ Easter sermon: Don't be afraid to affirm your true, authentic gay/transgender self
(The following article is from Rev. Tom Brock of pastorsstudy.org. You can follow Pastor Brock on Facebook - here and Twitter - here.)
Dawn Bennett, a "queer and cisgender" pastor of the liberal Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, has posted her Easter sermon. The point of the sermon is "Do not be afraid" to be your true, authentic gay, transgender self for this is "who God created you to be." She also reads from the Inclusive Bible and prays to "Holy Father, Holy Mother, Holy Parent", saying "Thank you for our queerness."
The Bible teaches homosexual behavior is sin (for all the verses, see my article "What does the Bible say about homosexuality?" at pastorsstudy.org). Jesus taught that God made us "male and female" (Matthew 19:4). He did not add "or gay, or transgender, or bisexual, or omnisexual or queer".
Sincerely in Christ,
Pastor Tom Brock
