A prominent Lutheran pastor in Germany told attendees of the German Protestant Church Congress on Sunday that “God is queer,” and warned them that they are the “Last Generation,” in reference to the radical environmental group.
In the final sermon of the event in Nuremberg, Quinton Ceasar used the opportunity to reel off a number of radical left ideological statements regarding mass migration, the promotion of LGBT policies, and the defense of the Black Lives Matter movement.
In front of a crowd of 20,000 people, the preacher said, “We are all the Last Generation. Now is the time to say Black lives always matter. Now is the time to say that God is queer.”
In reference to the ongoing migration crisis at Europe’s borders, the pastor called for greater assistance for economic migrants heading to the continent in small boats, primarily across the Mediterranean.
“We leave no one to die. We send a ship (to refugees) and much more. We welcome people with safe harbor,” he told the crowd.
He called for “safe spaces for all” and urged people of “privilege” to use this “for more justice,” saying, “We can be allies for each other. We are here. There are also many of us, and we’ll never be quiet again.”

The conflation of LGBT ideology with a longstanding religion that for centuries has opposed homosexuality sparked outrage among conservative commentators and members of the public alike.
Jürgen Braun, an MP for the rising Alternative for Germany (AfD) party, called the pastor a “sad, stupid joke” and lamented the demise of the religious institution Caesar is associated with. He said the pastor’s “God is queer” remark “used to simply be called blasphemy.”
During the interview, the interviewer opened by stating: “Almost 5 million members have turned their backs on the Protestant Church in the last 20 years and the number is growing every day. In addition to the exaggerated rainbow and LGBTQ propaganda, the church has recently openly expressed solidarity with the radical climate stickers of the Last Generation.” She then asked Braun what is behind the development.
