Dean of Trinity College Claims Jesus Could Have Been Transgender

Fact checked

Worshippers were left ‘in tears’ after leaving a sermon where the Dean of Trinity College claimed that Jesus may have been transgender.

But the view of a transgender Jesus is ‘legitimate’, according to Dr Michael Banner, the Cambridge Dean who stepped in to defend the claim made at a Sermon last Sunday that Christ had a ‘trans body’.

The Mail Online reports: Dr Michael Banner, the Dean of Trinity College, was backing up junior research fellow Joshua Heath, who displayed Renaissance and Medieval paintings of the crucifixion depicting a side wound that he likened to a vagina in front of the congregation.

The side wound ‘takes on a decidedly vaginal appearance’, said Heath, whose PhD was supervised by the former Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams.

The research fellow used the 1400th-century painting Pietà with the Holy Trinity by Jean Malouel to illustrate his point

‘In Christ’s simultaneously masculine and feminine body in these works, if the body of Christ as these works suggest the body of all bodies, then his body is also the trans body,’ claimed the researcher.

Heath used the 1400th-century painting Pietà with the Holy Trinity by Jean Malouel, on display in the Louvre, to illustrate his point, according to The Daily Telegraph.

French artist Henri Maccheroni’s 1990 work ‘Christs’ also appeared during the sermon, as did the Prayer Book of Bonne of Luxembourg.

In a letter to the Dean, one worshipper said: ‘I left the service in tears. You offered to speak with me afterwards, but I was too distressed. I am contemptuous of the idea that by cutting a hole in a man, through which he can be penetrated, he can become a woman.

‘I am especially contemptuous of such imagery when it is applied to our Lord, from the pulpit, at Evensong. I am contemptuous of the notion that we should be invited to contemplate the martyrdom of a ‘trans Christ’, a new heresy for our age.’

Others said they felt unwelcome in the church, adding that the children attending were visibly uncomfortable.

But Banner wrote a letter defending the sermon, seen by The Telegraph, saying: ‘For myself, I think that speculation was legitimate, whether or not you or I or anyone else disagrees with the interpretation, says something else about that artistic tradition, or resists its application to contemporary questions around transsexualism.’

He said however that he would not issue an invitation to someone who he thought would deliberately seek to shock or offend the congregation, or who he anticipated would speak against the Christian faith.


  1. They in the establishment in many Church’s, Anglican and Catholic actually hate their parishioners, hate Christians and despise rhe Bible.

  2. Desperate people have desperate ideas. Could the “Deans” desperation arise from seeing his thinking die on the coming battlefield in Ukraine?

  3. Woke will soon be a thing of the past. Ask twitter, facebook, paypal, target, bed bath & beyond, wayfair and disney. The power of the people have had enough of the wokeness. Men cannot bare a child and there are not five genders. Get over it Trudodo!

    Whoops. I commented on the wrong thread, but still true

  4. Where in the heck do they grow these sick people. It is a painting of a depiction of a wound. It is not a vagina.

    • Titus 1:15 — “To the pure, all things are pure; but to those who are defiled and unbelieving, nothing is pure, but both their mind and their conscience are defiled.”

  5. Only really perverted idiots like these clergy-men can come up with conspiracy theories like this drivel.

    It belongs in the realm of anti-christian agenda of the NWO-‘elite’.

    “bc we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities and against powers, against the world rulers of the darkness of this world, against the spiritual power of wickedness in high places.”

  6. The interpretation of these paintings is as blasphemous and stupid as Dan Brown’s Da Vinci Code interpretation that the young man seated to Christ’s right in the painting The Last Supper is really Mary Magdalene. That totally ignored the Renaissance tradition of portraying the young man John as what some have called a “girly man.” The tradition itself was questionable, but The Da Vinci Code fans ran with it. And if it is Mary Magdalene, John is mysteriously left out of the painting!

  7. A dog is a cat, 2+2 is 5. ‘If you can convince people of an absurdity then you can compel them to atrocities’
    Gas lighting is the core of woke influence.
    Oh ye suckers!

  8. It’s pretty funny though certainly untrue. But hey! in Scotland anyone can now be transgender in the eyes of the law simply by declaring it so.. Too much cold air on their cojones from the wearing of kilts? This law has resulted in thousands of male violent offenders and sex-offenders being transferred to women’s prisons where they rape at will their captive audience. Scotland’s PM is okay with it.
