(Christian Today) The Church of Sweden has declared itself pro-trans while also attacking feminists and so-called “radical right-wing Christian groups”.
In an open letter , the Church, which is the largest Lutheran denomination in Europe, said it was writing to the trans community “from a church that is also trans”.. “A church is made up of people. People are different. We have confirmees, employees, churchwardens, elected representatives, nonprofits, and other parishioners who define themselves as trans people. The church also consists of trans people.” In addition to criticizing conservative Christians, the letter also takes a swipe at “trans-excluding” feminists, while saying that it wants to fight “narrow gender norms”. The letter has been signed by around 1,000 Church members, priests and deacons, and is published on the website of Västerås diocese.
It also accuses the media of being biased towards people with conservative views of gender, which it says has given rise to a climate of “hatred”.
“This contributes to the normalization of trans hate,” they claim.

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We just launched a GiveSendGo page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
