Even fans of climate activist Greta Thunberg might question if the Church of Sweden went a little too far in their adulation of her.
Washington Examiner reports The Church of Sweden declared teen star climate activist Greta Thunberg to be an appointed successor to Jesus Christ in a 2018 tweet that resurfaced in the wake of her speech before the United Nations.
“Announcement! Jesus of Nazareth has now appointed one of his successors, Greta Thunberg,” the tweet said on Dec. 1, 2018. The account, operated by the Limhamns Church, had previously tweeted several sentiments of climate activism.
Kungörelse! Jesus från Nasaret har nu utsett en av sina efterträdare, nämligen Greta Thunberg.🌟

The tweet’s reemergence came at the same time as Thunberg’s appearance at the United Nations earlier this month in which she sounded the alarm about climate change during a viral speech.
“My message is that we’ll be watching you,” Thunberg warned to a room full of world leaders. “You all come to us young people for hope, how dare you? You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words and yet I’m one of the lucky ones … We are in the beginning of a mass extinction and all you can talk about is money and fairy tales of eternal economic growth. How dare you?”
