Usa: Lutheran church installs first transgender bishop

WASHINGTON, 13 SEPTEMBER – The Evangelical Lutheran Church of America, one of the largest Christian churches in the United States with about 3.3 million faithful, has installed its first openly transgender bishop: Reverend Megan Rohrer, who will lead the San Francisco’s Grace Cathedral in California, one of the church’s 65 synods, overseeing nearly 200 congregations across a broad area. “I entered this role because a different community of Lutherans in Northern California and Nevada devotedly and thoughtfully voted to do this historic thing,” said Rohrer, married and with two children.
