Female pastor who identifies as 'trans' compares Nashville shooter to Jesus

A woke preacher in Fargo, North Dakota, compared the Nashville shooter who slaughtered six Christians to Jesus just before the Crucifixion in a recent sermon.

On Sunday, newly installed pastor Micah Louwagie, a woman who claims to be "trans" and who prefers they/them pronouns, made the shocking comparison during an Easter-themed service at St. Mark's Lutheran Church. Louwagie began by blaming the shooting at the Covenant School on guns, asserting that gun violence is the leading cause of death for children and ignoring the fact that millions of babies die violently from abortion every year.

She insisted that society had fixated on the shooter's trans "identity" rather than "focusing on ways this could've been prevented, such as gun control." Louwagie then pivoted to make "marginalized folks," including those who claim to be transgender, the victims of "powers and institutions that are literally killing them."

"[T]hose of us with the least amount of privilege and power," Louwagie stated, including herself among the supposedly powerless, even as she enjoyed the attention of an entire church congregation, "need those who have more privilege and power than they do to physically place their bodies between them" and those who supposedly wish them harm.

Louwagie then scorned "allies" who claim to support "trans" people but who ultimately "betray" trans people "with a kiss," just as Judas Iscariot betrayed Jesus.

"The disciples were afraid to even be associated with Jesus, lest they suffer the same fate, lest their bodies be put at risk, " Louwagie continued. "I have observed that it is often the people with the most power and privilege who desert those they are called to defend when those people start getting harassed, beaten, arrested, targeted."

Louwagie compared such cowardly "allies and advocates" to the chief priests and Pharisees who "were looking for any excuse, valid or not, to crucify Jesus." She claimed that they ultimately crucified Jesus on false charges because his mission "of love and dignity was so very threatening to their own reputation." She implied that the "existence" of supposedly transgender people is likewise "threatening" to those in power.

"It's baffling to me that someone's existence can be so threatening, that people decide they need to be controlled, that they need to have laws made against them, or even worse, that the people that they find to be so threatening should die," she rambled.

Elsewhere in her sermon, Louwagie referenced the Holocaust and the internment of Japanese-Americans and compared those horrors to the experiences of so-called transgender people.

The website for St. Mark's is rife with rainbow and transgender flags, and its mission statement expressly includes the so-called "LGBTQIA" community: "St. Mark's Lutheran Church is an inclusive community that welcomes all people—including LGBTQIA individuals and their families—to fully participate in the life and ministry of the church, and to know God's unconditional love for all people."

The church has apparently not respond to requests for comment from the Daily Mail and Fox News Digital.
