Religion is changing.
At the center of a major revamp: Christianity.
And in Northern Europe, an organization’s appealing to a group not often courted by faith.
The Church of Sweden’s roots go deep: As noted by Britannica, it was originally Roman Catholic.
During the 16th century’s Protestant Reformation, the organization converted to Lutheran.
In 1544, the king officially declared Sweden a Lutheran nation.
But apparently, the church isn’t satisfied being stuck in the 1500s.
Therefore, it’s in the midst of a modern makeover.
Apropos of such, the Church of Sweden’s Vasteras diocese recently published what Pink News calls a “powerful letter.”
It’s putting the “trans” in “transformation”: Posted to its website, the message is titled “Personal Letter to You Who are Trans.”
Penned by four priests, a writer, and the diocese’s communications officer, the missive makes a sizable claim.
As it turns out, the Church of Sweden…is itself trans:
We are writing to you from a church that is also trans.
The authors hail diversity:
A church is made up of people. People are different. We have religious teachers, employees, churchwardens, elected representatives, non-profits and other parishioners who define themselves as transgender people.
The Church thus also consists of transgender people. Therefore, the Church could be described as trans.
According to Pink News, the letter apologizes to trans members “for how the media has treated you…”
Also guilty: TERFs (Trans-Exclusionary Radical Feminists).
