What a journey it's been for the Rev. Megan Rohrer, 41, who came out as a lesbian at a Lutheran college in South Dakota.
"The people who were in my religion classes with me would sing hymns when I walked by, to try to get rid of my gay demons. And I would just sing harmony. I didn't know what to do," Rohrer remembers.
After college, Rohrer began to identify as transgender. And now they've been elected as a bishop in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, the first openly trans person in the nation to achieve that status in a major Christian denomination.
I'm sure some of those hymn-singers are now seething in a most unchristian fashion.
