Of Course California: Church Installs Gender Confused As Bishop

In all fairness, the Bible doesn’t say all that much about gender in the first place, nor does it say anything about transgenders

Mainline Christian church installs first openly trans bishop

A California church installed the first openly transgender bishop of a mainline Christian denomination in San Francisco.

The Rev. Megan Rohrer was named bishop in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America on Saturday, saying the recognition is humbling.

“It’s fancy new embroidery but still first part of doing a new job, you want to do well since so many people around the world are paying attention,” Rohrer told Fox2 in the Bay Area. “Becoming a bishop is one more field that trans people can be fully equal.”

Rohrer is set to serve a six-year term and preside over the Sierra Pacific Synod, which consists of roughly 200 Lutheran congregations.

The road to becoming bishop has not been smooth, according to Rohrer, who was the first transgender chaplain of the San Francisco Police Department.

Rohrer had reportedly been excluded from the church for its regulations against those in the gay and transgender community.

“She” doesn’t look much like a woman, eh? As far as being the bishop, I guess this all depends on the parishioners. Do they care? Will they have a problem with some with obvious mental illness? And, is that low level mental illness but a person who is well adjusted and safe, or, like a lot of trans, who are dealing with serious mental illness up to the point of suicidal thoughts? Or, will this drive many away?

(Religion News) Really, it is not all that complicated. There are only six verses used when discussing same-sex relationships. With transgender identities, the only verse that could be interpreted in addressing transgender people is Deuteronomy 22:5.

The verse says, “A woman must not wear men’s clothing, nor a man wear women’s clothing, for the LORD your God detests anyone who does this.”

Anyone who reads Deuteronomy 22:5 and thinks it addresses transgender identities doesn’t have a firm grasp on transgender identities. If anything, this verse more accurately responds to cross dressing — not gender identity.

There really isn’t any difference. Even if a man “identifies” as a woman, he’s not. He’s male. Hence, cross dressing. The bigger issue is, Rohrer is gay, and there is prohibitions on same sex relationships. Though, being honest, if he/she isn’t raping young boys like we’ve seen in the Catholic Church, and preaching God’s Word, that’s fine.

Rohrer hopes that being bishop will elucidate the dedication that gay and transgender members have toward faith.

Will Rohrer push SJW stuff from the pulpit, or stick with religion?

Transgender MMA fighter chokes out female competitor in debut match

Transgender mixed martial arts fighter Alana McLaughlin, a biological male, defeated her opponent via rear-naked choke in a Friday debut fight.

McLaughlin, 38, began transitioning in 2010 after leaving the U.S. Army Special Forces, Outsports.com reported. The transgender fighter beat Celine Provost, a biological female, 3 minutes and 32 seconds into the second round. McLaughlin began training in the sport a year ago and was cleared to compete against women by the Florida State Boxing Commission after a hormone level test.

He beat the snot out of her, taking a win away from a woman in a woman’s division. Piers Morgan, who makes a lot of sense on things other than firearms, notes

It was the moment ideology met cold, hard reality.

Alana McLaughlin, 38, the second transgender MMA fighter to compete in the sport, used a powerful choke hold to beat Celine Provost, 32.

The latter was demonstrably a more skilled and experienced fighter during their bout on Friday night – McLaughlin only took up MMA earlier this year, whereas Provost’s been doing it for a decade – but just couldn’t compete with the overwhelming physical strength of her opponent.

Provost’s punches bounced off McLaughlin like a baby lion’s off its father, and when she was pinned to the ground, she couldn’t move and quickly tapped out.

Take a peak at the article: McLaughlin looks nothing like a woman.

    It’s actually pretty specific as it pertains to leadership positions in the church. Also pretty specific about men not taking on the appearance of women or women taking on the appearance of men in addition to men not lying with men and women with women. It’s pretty specific about the roles and men and women as it pertains to the church, the man’s place, the woman’s place, however, in marriage they are co-equals, but, the man is charged with being the leader in accepting responsibility in what today would be considered just horrible. Though there may not be thousands of verses and chapters on the subject, they didn’t see the need to spend an inordinate amount of time on something that was commonplace and logical, and focus in on what the whole purpose of the Bible is.

    1 Timothy 3:2 A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;

    1 Timothy 3:12 Let the deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well.

    1 Corinthians 14:34 Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience as also saith the law. (Pertaining to leading services)

    1 Corinthians 14:35 And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.

    This is what happens when you have ministers and priests and bishops who do not actually believe the Bible they profess to believe.

    Apparently the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America forgot what happened to the Episcopal Church when they installed open homosexual Vicky Gene Robinson as Bishop of New Hampshire.
