Tucker Carlson began his opening monologue on Friday night suggesting that transgenderism is becoming America’s “fastest-growing religion.”
Carlson also highlighted the recent Nashville school shooting, which was carried out by transgender individual, Audrey Hale, pointing out a sermon about her that was delivered at a Lutheran church in North Dakota.
As The Daily Fetched reported last week, Transgender Micah Louwagie, who was recently installed as the Pastor of St. Mark’s Lutheran Church in Fargo, North Dakota, delivered a sermon that appeared to excuse the actions of the transgender shooter by invoking the Biblical events leading up to the crucifixion of Jesus.
Louwagie read the Biblical passage of Jesus Christ being crucified before bringing up the mass shooting in Nashville.
The pastor then used the sermon to compare transgender persons who are “betrayed” to Jesus’s disciples who fled when he was arrested.
“Marginalized folks, those of us with the least amount of privilege and power, they need those who have more privilege and power than they do to physically place their bodies between them and the people, powers and institutions that are literally killing them,” Louwagie said.
Tucker Carlson noted how transgenderism is now becoming embedded in religion.
From FOX News:
Good evening and welcome to a special edition of “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” Happy Good Friday. This is the saddest and at the same time, by far the most hopeful day on the Christian calendar. There was a time not so long ago when the overwhelming majority of Americans observed Good Friday. They got up, they went to church, they talked about it at the office and at dinner that night, it was part of their culture, that’s no longer true.
Tonight, you wonder how many Americans even know it’s Good Friday. So after hundreds of years, this has finally become a non-Christian country, but it’s not a secular country. You know sometimes people call it that, but they are wrong. There are no secular countries. Every country has a religion because every person has a religion, even if it’s atheism. Everybody worships something. We’re born that way. We can’t get away from it. So what is America’s religion now?
Well, as it happens, we have video. This is from St. Mark’s Lutheran Church in Fargo, North Dakota. It was taken on April 2nd. That was the first Sunday after the mass killing in Nashville in which three adults and three children were murdered at a Christian school for being Christians. In the old America, Christian pastors would have preached about this. They would have acknowledged the evil on display, and they would have prayed for those who’d been killed.
A form of that is still happening today, but the roles have been inverted. In America’s new religion, the victims are not the children who died in Nashville. The victim is the woman who killed them, because Audrey Hale called herself transgender. She was, by definition, a holy martyr. Watch this pastor in a formerly Christian church compare Audrey Hale to Jesus.
PASTOR: Leaders were looking for any excuse, valid or not, to crucify Jesus, and they found that reason… 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.
