Poe’s Law is invoked when it is impossible, absent other evidence, whether something is a parody or a sincere expression. Considering the paganization of many Christian churches, the Swedish church diocese declaring deranged eco-moppet Great Thunberg a successor to Jesus Christ falls squarely into the purview of this law.
Kungörelse! Jesus från Nasaret har nu utsett en av sina efterträdare, nämligen Greta Thunberg.🌟

Proclamation! Jesus of Nazareth has now appointed one of his successors, Greta Thunberg.
Hmmm, someone comes along and says we must follow them if they want to be saved… or else. Kinda sounds like the Anti-Christ from the Book of Revelations. Well, the “Seventh Seal” was Swedish, after all.
However, this seems to be from a legitimate twitter account that links to a legitimate looking diocese, and was covered by The Daily Wire.
“The Church of Sweden Malmö announced that they would ring their church bells in conjugation with the Global Climate Strike, of which Thunberg is the face.
“In conjunction with the Global Climate Strike, church bells ring and we gather for prayer for the future of the earth,” the church announced. ‘We pray that we believe that man is responsible for nurturing and managing Creation so that children are given the opportunity for a future. We pray that we know that climate change affects the most vulnerable — poor, children and women. We pray that we believe in man’s ability to change and change.’
“’When the Amazon burns, we gather to fight for Mother Earth together,’ the site reads, adding, ‘WELCOME’”.
Mother Earth? This isn’t about Thunberg being a successor to Jesus, but about her becoming next chief Druid of the Gaia cult.
Said “church” argued that the word “efterträda” could mean follower, in addition to superseder, replacement, successor. However, this appears to be more than just a stretch.
The “Climate Crisis” isn’t about the climate, it is religious zealotry.
