‘Transgender Jesus’ Performs in Church of England
Western Civilization has gone from revering Jesus to disrespecting Him as a matter of habit. In fact, it’s become so popular to disrespect Him that the Church of England allowed a play about a “transgender Jesus” to be performed this past Sunday in Manchester.
The Daily Mail reported on Feb. 13 that “the Bishop of Manchester, David Walker, will not block the staging of The Gospel According To Jesus, Queen Of Heaven.”
The article then says that, “The one-woman play by Jo Clifford, an award-winning Scottish playwright who has herself changed gender, imagines Jesus returning to earth as a ‘trans woman’ and retelling the parables with a transsexual slant.”
It gets even better when you go to the official website of the Diocese of Manchester and read the statement it released on Feb. 14 that addresses why it chose to host heresy. Part of the statement includes an apology.
The Anglican Primates stated in their recent communiqué that our churches, including the Church of England, have much to repent of in the way that LGBT people have been discriminated against in our societies, often with either tacit or explicit support from church leaders and institutions.
None of this surprises me. However, I am amazed that major Christian leaders do not seem to become righteously angry at such evil. I’m sure they’ll condemn what happened in the Diocese of Manchester but I’m equally sure their condemnation will amount to little more than the clucking of tongues.
Satan doesn’t seem to have much opposition anywhere in the world any longer.
Oh, well. I’m sure nothing bad will come of this.
