“Transgender Pastor” Opposing Texas Bathroom Bill Claims God is “Transgender”
1 Timothy 4:1-2– Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, 2 speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared with a hot iron
A Texas pastor opposing a controversial transgender bathroom bill that would require individuals to use public restrooms based on “biological sex” protested the bill with hundreds of LGBTQ advocates on Tuesday declaring that “God is transgender.”
The Rev. S. David Wynn, a senior pastor from Agape Metropolitan Community Church in Fort Worth, Texas, lashed out at the bill in solidarity with hundreds of LGBTQ advocates protesting the bill outside the state capitol in Austin.
“In the beginning, God created humankind in God’s image. … So God is transgender,” Wynn told the crowd which roared in approval. “We’re all created in the image of what is holy and divine and sacred, and we should all be treated that way.”
Senate Bill 6, proposed in January, would require everyone to use bathrooms in public schools, government buildings and public universities based on “biological sex,” according to The Texas Tribune. The measure would also pre-empt local nondiscrimination ordinances that allow transgender Texans to use the bathroom that corresponds with their gender identity.
