Church Unveils Altarpiece Of Paradise Featuring Gay Couples And Transgender Serpent

Church prides itself on embracing a laundry list of woke agendas

(Infowars) – A church in Malmo has a new altarpiece meant to celebrate inclusivity by replacing Adam and Eve in paradise with gay couples in suggestive poses, while depicting the serpent tempting them as a transgender woman.

The controversial work of art is not new. Photographer and artist Elisabeth Ohlson Wallin painted it in 2012 and tried to donate it to the Skara Cathedral just before the church was preparing to conduct the first same-sex wedding in its 1,000-year history.

The openly lesbian artist, who has a history of blending religious imagery with pro-minority activism, said at the time that she wanted to test if the Church of Sweden was as gay-friendly as it claimed to be when it embraced same-sex marriage in 2009. The Skara Cathedral politely declined the gift, saying it was about political activism and not faith.

But over seven years have passed, and now Wallin has got her way, even if it isn’t in her home city. St. Paul’s Church in Malmo accepted the painting called “Paradise” as its new altarpiece and unveiled it on Sunday, the first day of Advent. Helena Myrstener, the pastor, said that “history was written” in the hanging of the “LGBT altarpiece” as she tweeted a photo of the painting.

Wallin’s reimagining of paradise was inspired by one of the works by Renaissance master Lucas Cranach the Elder. The artist/activist said she wanted to show that, since the beginning of time, the place for gay people was in paradise rather than hell. The modern interpretation interestingly seems more prudish in terms of nudity than the 16th century originals as both “lesbian Eves” have their breasts covered by leaves rather than concealing only their genitals, as is traditional.

But it’s probably not because the artist has problems with nudity. After all, her most famous photo exhibition – the 2012 Bible-inspired “Ecce Homo” – featured an image portraying the baptism of Jesus with the model standing for Christ having his penis fully exposed.

The Church of Sweden, the state Church of the Scandinavian country until 2000 and still by far its largest denomination, prides itself on embracing a laundry list of woke agendas. Despite this, Swedes have been leaving the Church in record numbers lately, according to surveys.

Judging by some comments on social media, the new altarpiece won’t help much with stopping the exodus. “The politization has gone too far,” one member commented on the news as she announced leaving the Church. Another one said that while there were plenty of enlightened priests in the Church of Sweden, radicals from a “PC-pack” have turned it into their own arena.

  1. Wake up AMERICA! we have to put JESUS back in our homes, our schools, our government! Forgive us JESUS! devil is working overtime trying to fill every little crack with his nasty, disgusting, hateful ways! we’ve sat back & believed everything will be alright – well it’s not gonna be alright until we put Almighty God back in America!

    • Totally against the word of the Lord. These people are not Christians. I am not judging I am simply stating the fact that these people DO NOT KNOW OR CARE about THE WORD of God. This IS NOT a church.
      The more I see this the more I know Jesus will be coming soon, hallelujah. We don’t know the time, but the Bible tells us we will know by the signs and folks THE SIGNS are EVERYWHERE

  2. It’s NOT a God approved lifestyle! Not everything that calls itself a church is a place where the followers of God/Jesus/ Holy Spirit would gather!

  3. There seem to be RATS on both sides of the aisles in the Congress. The DEEP STATE in entrenched deeper than most people thought. I don’t trust many people in D.C. The District of Corruption, these last 25+years. Tea Party included..sorry to say.
    Power Corrupts and Absolute Power Corrupts ABSOLUTELY ! [.]
    Our Founding Fathers, have to be rolling in their graves, observing what’s going on in America today. I’m reeling myself, and have become VERY angry, at whats being initiated in Congress and elsewhere of late.

  4. What ever happened to live and let live? Wasn’t this country based on freedom of religion? If you don’t like the art in this church, you can find a different place to worship. There are more than 45,000 churches in the U.S. alone.

    Clearly, this article is meant to distract us from real news confronting all Americans: the expanding trade war, the skyrocketing debt (even conservative economists are frightened), the deteriorating infrastructure, and of course the impeachment crisis.

    Is it really worth the digital space to complain about one church that no one is forced to attend? Meanwhile, chances are good that the worth of our money will continue to slide so that Washington can print money to pay the debt. We’re ALL going to suffer, and yet Teaparty–a supposedly smart blog–focuses on one church that very few of us will ever even see.

    As our President would say, this is SAD journalism.

    • IRWIN A WELL WRITTEN PIECE. TRUMP SHOULD JUST IGNORE THE LIBERAL RACISTS INSTEAD OF RESPONDING TO THERE DISGUSTING AND FOUL LANGUAGE ATTACKS. THINK OF AMERICA AND CONTINUE THE GREAT JOB YOU ARE DOING FOR AMERICA.

  5. God will not be mocked! His revenge is mighty! I’m feed up with lettered groups cramming their beliefs in front of people at every opportunity. Let them live their life style in peace and SILENCE.

  6. I would not want to be in Myrstener’s or Wallin’s shoes on the Day of the Lord. They will certainly regret that decision for eternity. I pity the fools.

  7. Every day I read on email the latest scandal revealed, the big news that will bring down some scoundrel. I’m tired of being misled and lied to. I want to read that action is being taken And not just words being uttered, The bad people are being arrested and charged for crimes committed.

  8. Well, that ruined my breakfast. Some things you can’t unsee. Sweden can do what it wants. In the US the LGBT have totally destroyed the Boy Scouts odf America and bruised the Catholic Church with infiltrated child molesters. They have also declared WAR on 165 million American females by trying to destroy their established rights by pushing to allow mentally delusional males invasion of female facilities and stealing sports trophies, awards and scholarships.
