Gay altarpiece with two Adams and two Eves will be removed from the Swedish church

Gay altarpiece with two Adams and two Eves and a transgender woman dressed as a snake will be removed from the Swedish church – in case it is offensive to transsexuals

  • A & # 39; gay & # 39; altarpiece with flirty Adams and Eve has been removed from the church
  • The image hung in a Swedish church and also showed a transsexual in a tree
  • Artist Elisabeth Wallin creates Christian works of art with which LGBTQ can identify

A homosexual altarpiece with two Adams and two Eves and a transgender woman dressed as a snake has been removed from a church – because of fear it is offensive to transsexuals.

Created by Elisabeth Ohlson Wallin, the photo illustration was offered to the Saint Paul church in Malmö, where it was placed to the right of the main altar on the first Sunday of Advent on December 1.

The diocese has now said it will remove it from the altar – but not because the Lutheran church of Sweden had a problem with the gay couples.

Instead, it said it feared that the painting could be interpreted as showing a transperson as evil or the devil, just as a snake traditionally symbolizes evil in Christianity.

The LGBTQ altarpiece & # 39; Paradise & # 39; made by artist Elisabeth Ohlson Wallin at his place in the St. Paul church in Malmö, Sweden on November 29. The illustration was deleted on Wednesday

The 1.3 x 1.9 meter photo was presented to St. Paul's Church in Malmö, the third largest city in the country, where it was located from the inauguration on December 1, 2019, the first Sunday of the Advent, to the right of the altar.

The diocese decided to remove it from the altar on Wednesday, but not because the Lutheran church of Sweden had a problem with the gay couples depicted.

& # 39; The fact that there are two homosexual couples in the artwork is completely undisputed & # 39 ;, the diocese wrote in a statement.

& # 39; But the fact that there is a snake that traditionally symbolizes evil, and that it turns into a transperson, can lead to the interpretation that a transperson is evil or the devil. & # 39;

& # 39; The Swedish church absolutely cannot stand that. & # 39;

Artist Elisabeth Ohlson Wallin, 58, said she was disappointed that the mural had been removed from the church.

She wants to create Christian works of art with which LGBTQ people can identify themselves.

Mrs. Wallin made headlines 20 years ago for her depiction of a stiletto-bearing Jesus surrounded by 12 transvestite apostles.

The pastor of Saint Paul, Sofia Tunebro, also regretted the decision.

& # 39; We've been marrying gay couples for ten years, and with this piece of art it was a bit like putting up a wedding photo in the church, & # 39; she said. & # 39; Elisabeth Ohlson Wallin has done so much for the integration and representation of [LGBTQ people] in the Christian world. & # 39;
