In what has become a “race to the bottom” of popular culture, Sweden once again has pushed forward to the front with a new low in the official Church of Sweden committing blasphemy against the Holy Family and promoting it to children. According to a recent pamphlet published by them, it called St. Joseph a transvestite, Jesus “queer”, and St. Mary described as a bisexual radical feminist according to a report:
The Swedish Church now publishes a LGBTQ guide for “Christian queer kids”. Among other things, one designs Jesus as “queer” and Joseph as transvestite.
The Swedish Church in Västerås diocese has produced a “survival guide for Christian queer kids”. On their website, one writes that the guide contains definitions and concepts, a bit about the Bible and LGBTQ, as well as Bible stories that are important for LGBTQ people.
The guide claims that the Bible is not against homosexuality, because the word homosexuality is not mentioned and that the places that have been interpreted as dealing with homosexuality are not about a homosexual love relationship, but about exploitation or rape.
The guide also goes in several terms, such as “cisperson”, “gender fluid”, “non-binary”, “queer”, “two sex norm”, “rainbow fairs” and more.
The Bible’s Mary is described as a girl who “dares to break traditional sex norms in a patriarchal society”. Joseph is painted as a different dreamer who “breaks the norms in terms of gender expression and probably went in a suit intended for a king’s daughter”.
Even Jesus gets a sledge of the sledge. He is described as a man who “broke the norm”. According to the guide, some call him “queer” for his way of life, when he “questioned the norms of that time”. He “also did not defend the traditional family” and should have known love for many “men and women”.
The guide also contains a segment titled “Are you a unicorn?” As the publisher of the guide and contact, Cecilia Redner is the diocese of children’s and youth issues at the ward department.

There is much talk about Sweden being “invaded” by migrants. Now while the term “invasion” is objectively incorrect, as we have shown the migrations are facilitated population transfers meant to incite nationalistic sentiments, consider that perhaps there really is an invasion quality to them, but not because of the poor people from the heart of Africa who want to carry guns and rape women for fun, but because of the hand of the Almighty.
Consider the migration of the tribes of Israel to the Holy Land. Remember, there were already tribes settled in the land of Canaan before the Israelis settled there. God gave the Israelites permission to wipe out the tribes who were there, and this was in large part due to the fact that these tribes embraced the most abhorrent sins that cry out to Heaven for vengeance, which was the willful murder of the innocent through child sacrifice and with it a host of other equally loathsome sins as defined in Sacred Scripture including sodomy, the oppression of thew widow and orphan, and the deprivation of the working man of his justly earned wages.
But what is to say about the Caananites? Were they not “there first”? Were those lands not “their lands”? Look at the Israelites- were they not “refugees” fleeing from Egypt, having no land and few possessions? What is to be said of the religion, culture, and way of life of the Caananites- are they just going to be dispossessed from the soils of their fathers and ancestors? When what was a “refugee crisis” in antiquity came, were the Caananites simply not defending their national rights to existence against “those foreign invaders?”
Now God loves all people, but He hates sin. For all of the talk of “anti-semitism” leveled at the Jews, what is to say of God’s repeated criticism of Israel throughout all of the Old Testament? It is clearly not because of “racism,” but because the Israelites embraced the repugnant practices of their neighbors and ignored the true way that He had taught to them which leads to salvation. It is why he allowed the ten tribes of the north to be destroyed, the remaining two to be pushed into each other, and then finally the last tribe to be taken into captivity in Babylon.
Likewise, why did God have in the book of Ruth a woman of Moabite extraction to marry Boaz, whose son Obed is the grandfather of King David, the great king of the Jews hailed by Jews all around the world in the Old Testament? The Bible itself makes clear that David was NOT of pure Jewish blood, but mixed, because his great grandfather did not marry in the “tribe.” According to the logic of many who are consumed with the idea of a human pedigree as though man was nothing more than an animal, Boaz was a “race traitor” by marrying a non-Jew.
God did these things as a sign, just as the reason why God did signs when He sent His Son, to teach men the truth of His doctrine and what truly matters. St. John says it well in John 1, but St. Mary also says it similarly in Luke 1 when St. Gabriel appears to her and she sings her song of praise:
My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord; my spirit rejoices in God my savior. For he has looked upon his handmaid’s lowliness;
Behold, from now on will all ages call me blessed. The Mighty One has done great things for me, and holy is his name. His mercy is from age to age to those who fear him. (Luke 1:46-50)
God did all these things because true faith in God and the blessings that a man receives from Him are due to Him alone. Nothing good comes save from God, and man is not entitled to goodness at all. God does not favor people based on race, or class, or any other quality save that of the soul, something which the Bible states He looks tirelessly for but so seldom manages to find in good condition.
In 2015 when Islamic terrorists attacked a French concert, many rushed to show their support for France, yet so few looked into what happened, for in the moments before the shooting happened, the band had started playing the song “kiss the devil.” The concert goers were praising a song that invoked the devil- they had bowed before him, and sure enough he decided to show up and kiss them back.
So returning to the above issue with Sweden, is it any surprise that Sweden is having many serious issues, even going beyond the chaos the nations wants to generate for nationalistic reasons? The nation truly is breaking down, and just as one cannot look at the color of the skin of the people coming in, one must also look underneath the color of the skin held by the Swedish people at large. The fact that the Church of Sweden embraced not only Sodom, but sodomitic blasphemy against God and the family He chose to come into the world through is a serious matter. It would be one issue if there was a serious outcry or opposition to it as is with Catholics about the many problems in her ranks, but the Church of Sweden does not have such. It is just another day in the life of what is the average Swede, and the poison continues to seep into the veins of the nation, for the nation itself persistently defines herself by such perversities and desires to impose them on children, and has done so for a long time that gets more intense each year and with less remorse or will to change.
Some say that Sweden will eventually cease to exist as a people due to the fact that not only are there many migrants, but that they are having children like the sons of Israel while the native Swedes are behaving in the manner of the Caananites of the ancient world, who murdered their babies, sodomized each other, and defrauded each other as a way of life.
Perhaps God truly did desire the “invasion” of Sweden, for given their behavior and how God will use one’s enemies to chastise a man, it does not seem to be difficult to understand why such an idea is not blasphemous, but all too Biblical for a world which desires a return to the days of Noah, caring not for the things of Heaven. But unlike the days of Noah, justice will not come by waters that clean, but a fire that burns.
