America’s First Trans Bishop Resigns After Racism Allegations

6

Transgender Lutheran bishop Megan Rohrer has resigned amidst allegations of racism after the bishop fired Pastor Nelson Rabell-Gonzalez, a popular Hispanic pastor in the Stockton, California community. Rohrer is the first openly transgender bishop in the Lutheran church in the US.

According to The Daily Mail, Rohrer arrived at Rabell-Gonzalez’s church on December 12, 2021 citing cause for his termination as verbal assault and harassment, allegations Rabell-Gonzalez has denied.

The mostly Mexican immigrant congregation of Mision Latina Luterana had gathered to celebrate the Feast of the Virgin Guadalupe and had no idea their pastor was set to be fired.

Rohrer wore a bulletproof vest to perform the firing and threatened to call the police if the congregants responded aggressively, which they’ve described as “an egregious action especially when dealing with the vulnerable communities of Black, Indigenous and People of Color.”

Many in the congregation also said Rohrer was smirking the entire time but the former bishop attributed that to autism.

Rohrer’s rise was built on progressive activism especially centered around LGBTQ+ issues.

Rabell-Gonzalez’s church’s related group, the Latino Ministries Association, said Rohrer was a “white aggressor” who was rooted in “white supremacy and systemic racism” and they dispatched a “listening team” to assess the situation and provide feedback to the church’s leadership.

After a review of the listening team’s conclusions, the denomination’s lead bishop Reverend Elizabeth Eaton asked for Rohrer’s resignation and said the church needs more anti-racism training, more cultural sensitivity training, and to perform a “healing visit” to the community.

Roher accepted the results and said, “while I am likely strong enough to continue serving as your bishop, I believe I would be a poor role model for my black trans children if I continued in this position.”

42 year old Rohrer  uses they/them pronouns and was America’s first openly-transgender bishop having risen within the ranks of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). 

In December ELCA Pastor Aaron Musser gave a sermon in drag and clarified the church’s position that “queerness is sacred.” Rohrer was elected in May 2021 for a six year term within the Sierra Pacific Synod, which consists of roughly 200 churches.

    While it would be wrong to generalize about the ELCA as the left is in the habit of doing when they throw out terms like “systemic racism” and “white supremacy,” it is going to continue lose members when it places mentally Ill people in positions of authority who are more focused on their bizarre sexuality than the Word of God and doing His work. The church should have realized this before allowing such a person to serve as a minister.

    This situation is definitely strange, pittong a Hispanic congregation that should be treated with dignity into a position of opposition to the ELCA generally as if all pastors would act this way. And the woke lead bishop is no better in calling for “anti racism” training.

    HOW DID THIS “MENTALLY ILL FREAK” EVEN GET INTO ANY CHURCH. SATAN IS SUPPOSE TO BE TURNED AWAY BY ALL HUMAN BEINGS. LET ALONE A “HOLY CHURCH” , TO ALLOW THIS “SICK FREAK” INTO THEIR CHURCH, AS IF THIS IS AN “ACCEPTABLE” “THING” THAT GOD WOULD SAY WAS “OKAY” WITH HIM. WE KNOW HOW EVIL SATAN IS AND HOW STRONG WILLED THIS EVIL BEAST IS AND YET, A “CHURCH” ALLOWED HIM TO ENTER THEIR LORD’S HOLY HOME? HAS SATAN TAKEN OVER OUR AMERICA SOMEHOW? I MEAN, I KNOW SATAN HAS ENTERED “OUR WHITE HOUSE” AND ENTERED THE “MINDS” OF THOSE “CORRUPTED POLITICIANS” ……. BUT, “OPENING THE DOORS TO “GOD’S HOUSE”, IS COMPLETELY UNACCEPTABLE AND “EVERY CHRISTIAN, MUST FIGHT THESE “TRANSGENDER CREATURES” AND PUT THESE SICK CREATURES AWAY IN A MENTAL ASYLUM, WHERE THEY CAN LIVE OUT THE REST OF THEIR SICK LIVES, WITHOUT “INFECTING” OUR “CHILDREN”.

    An autistic women-who-thinks-she’s-a-man token bishop was lauded as “new and trendy” but of course failed miserably.
    Leftist ideology has NO basis in logic or reality.

    Don’t judge all Lutheran churches because of this. The ELCA synod of Lutheran churches have been condoning this kind of perversion for several years. It has gotten much worse in the past few years. Prayer would be helpful, as these people are definitely lost.
