Christian leaders condemned the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America for its decision to install its first openly transgender bishop, calling the move a “subversion of the creation order” and proof that some mainline Protestant denominations have abandoned Christianity altogether.
The ELCA installed its first openly transgender bishop, the Rev. Megan Rohrer, in a service at San Francisco’s Grace Cathedral on Saturday, the Associated Press reported. Rohrer will lead one of the church’s 65 synods, overseeing nearly 200 congregations in Northern California and northern Nevada. Rohrer, who has identified as lesbian, now reportedly identifies as non-binary and prefers to go by “they/them” pronouns.
The article goes on to state the following:
“I step into this role because a diverse community of Lutherans in Northern California and Nevada prayerfully and thoughtfully voted to do a historic thing,” Rohrer said in a statement. “My installation will celebrate all that is possible when we trust God to shepherd us forward.”
Fox News quotes Al Mohler, president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, as saying the transgender movement represents an “intentional subversion of the creation order.”
Mohler explained, “The biblical worldview begins with making distinctions. First, the distinction between God and His creation and then the distinction between human beings and other creatures and then, third, the distinction between male and female. The entire transgender revolution is a revolt against the order of God in creation and God’s intention for humanity.”
“God did not create androgynous beings; He created two complementary, biologically, and genetically sexed individuals. God built the complementarity of the sexes into the very fabric of creation,” said David Closson, director of the Center for Biblical Worldview at the Family Research Council.
