Transgender Pastor Compares Murderer to Jesus

“A liberal transgender pastor compared Nashville shooter Audrey Hale to Jesus being betrayed and crucified less than a week after Hale murdered six people [including three children] at a Christian school. Micah Louwagie, who was recently formally installed as the pastor of St. Mark’s Lutheran Church in Fargo, North Dakota, delivered the Easter-themed sermon to the small congregation on April 2. After reading the Biblical account of Jesus’ crucifixion, Louwagie immediately brought up the mass shooting in Nashville. ‘Some folks have tried to focus on eradicating trans people as a solution, because they have been waiting, just waiting for an opportunity such as this. They’ve been waiting for a reason, any reason to stoke their hatred,’ Louwagie said. The liberal pastor goes on to compare the Pharisees’ treatment of Jesus to politicians who make laws against drag shows and transgender players in sports. The pastor also compared how transgenders were treated in the U.S. to the Holocaust and Japanese internment camps later on in the message.”
