Skip to comments.Bolz-Weber’s liberal, foulmouthed articulation of Christianity speaks to fed-up believers
Posted on 11/04/2013 3:18:02 PM PST by EveningStar
AUSTIN Nadia Bolz-Weber bounds into the University United Methodist Church sanctuary like a superhero from Planet Alternative Christian. Her 6-foot-1 frame is plastered with tattoos, her arms are sculpted by competitive weightlifting and, to show it all off, this pastor is wearing a tight tank top and jeans.
Looking out at the hundreds of people crowded into the pews to hear her present the gospel of Jesus Christ, she sees: Dockers and blazers. Sensible shoes. Grandmothers and soccer moms. Nary a facial piercing.
To Bolz-Webers bafflement, this is now her congregation: mainstream America.
These are the people who put her memoir near the top of the New York Times bestseller list the week it came out in September. They are the ones who follow her every tweet and Facebook post by the thousands, and who have made the Lutheran minister a budding star for the liberal Christian set.

Thanks,just before dinner!
A little deliverance here, a little deliverance there, and she’ll be cleaned up in no time.
It’s sad to know such robust, all-American gals like her are leading other fine, upstanding American citizens into the fires of eternal hell, built originally for the devil and his angels. But, hey, it’s all about showbiz now, right?
“liberal” Lutherans descend to freak shows.
Another Lost Soul with both-feet firmly planted in Hell, falsely proclaiming they represent Jesus Christ.
‘Liberal Christian’? Ooookay.
Ach! She looks like a bloody butch!
Eye bleach - QUICK!
Beam me up the freaks are in the drivers seat.
:: made the Lutheran minister a budding star for the liberal Christian set. ::
And...NOW? (I repeat, NOW? and again, NOW?, once more NOW?) do you understand why the term “PRIESTITUTE” is absolutely appropriate?
Anyone...Harrison? McCain? Butler? Mueller? Bueller?
I say let the charge ring out!
Just an ugly person through and through
Stand By! Transporter is down!
One cannot believe in the liberal ideology and believe in the teachings of Christ.
Where’s the muscular part??? I read the entire news story and came away with an understanding she preaches if it feels good do it apostasy.
What a crock. Here's how Bolz-Weber debauched the Gospel in one of her sermons: "And just to be clear: The cross is not about God as divine child abuser sadly sending his little boy off to be killed because we were bad and well, somebody had to pay."
Here's what Martin Luther had to say about charlatans like Bolz-Weber:
". . . Here then we have these two, the faith and the Gospel, that these and nothing else are to be preached throughout Christendom. Let us now see who are to be the preachers and who the learners. The preachers are to be angels, that is, God's messengers, who are to lead a heavenly life, are to be constantly engaged with God's Word that they under no circumstances preach the doctrines of men. It is a most incongruous thing thing to be God's messenger and not to further God's message. Angelus means a messenger, and Luke calls him God's messenger (Angelus Domini). The message also is of more importance than the messenger's life. If he leads a wicked life, he only injures himself, but if he brings a false message in the place of God's message, he leads astray and injures every one that hears him, and causes idolatry among the people in that they accept lies for the truth, honor men instead of God, and pray to the devil instead of God.
"There is no more terrible plague, misfortune or cause for distress upon earth than a preacher who does not preach God's Word; of whom, alas, the world today is full, and yet they think they are pious and do good when indeed their whole work is nothing but murdering souls, blaspheming God and setting up idolatry, so that it would be much better for them if they were robbers, murderers, and the worst scoundrels, for then they would know that they are doing wickedly. But now they go along under spiritual names and show . . . and are at the same time ravening wolves in sheeps' clothing, and it would be well if no one ever heard their preaching." --Martin Luther, Christmas Day Sermon [Lenker, J. N., ed. Sermons of Martin Luther, Volume 1: Sermons on Gospel Texts for Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany, Vol. 1, pp. 153-4]
I had her figured for an Episcopalian.
So Morticia had an affair with Lurch behind Gomez` back...whoda thunk it...
Frightening...Satan usually disguises himself better
She seems to say Christians are hypocrites when she is using the sins of her congregation she hears about in counselling and confession to blackmail their silence in typical kgb style liberal moralization.
this is one vile creature.
She has all the tatoo thug Obama concept, lesbian genocidist, telling the congregation to shut up about her abuses and embrace of sin, blackmailing on her knowledge of their misdeeds she peddles and through bully pulpit.
Typical CPS witchery prejudging her audience. This is a total farce if it were not so tragic. This woman is a pedophile and unborn murderer.
I didn’t want to go to the site
I am saying her style of preaching into thugging her audience into silence regarding her embrace of exploitation is typical pedophile playbook to raise guilt in the child preyed upon.
Right. I get it.
I don’t understand why people would attend a “church” like that in the first place.
Me neither. Either they are mazochists or they partake in this saddism.
What is clear is that she is damaged material and she is on her “anti-phobia” war path of punishing whoever does not like the smell or taste of her looks resulting from her damaging lifestyle.
This is the seduction angle. What is a child supposed to do? We cannot even pinch our noses even if she was decent looking during her obvious self exhibition at the pulpit.
Who is truly hypocrite? Certainly the exhibitionist wants to attract “positive” attraction through various visual or scent based fragrances. This woman is a desperate whore and pimp style exploiter.
To be polite, yes. Our society has devolved into something that many of us would never have imagined.
” liberal Lutherans descend to freak shows.” ????
I do not see anything linking this freak to Lutherans, although I would not overly surprised if one of her ilk became manifest in an ELCA venue.
Wow, the WaPo really has no standards whatsoever.
Four years and a seminary degree later, Bolz-Weber founded what today is casually called House. Its a start-up of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, with an anti-excellence, pro-participation policy. It meets in the parish hall of an Episcopal church.
Beware: more gag inducing smarmyness follows.
New Age kook with a butch haircut. She could work for Maobama. Bob
The WaPo isn’t the only one posting articles about her.
My hometown paper, The Orange County Register, had one on her today.
“Hey, everyone! Look at me! And buy my book!”
Many mansions ... many mansions ...
Maybe dumping the tattoo taboo was a mistake ...
Sadly, I do understand why they would; wisdom and discernment are double edged swords. This generation is embracing a foul and corrupted Gospel. It reeks of The Father of Lies.
Seriously, dudes, is that a female or an ugly transsexual?
A quote from the one who is in line for a mill stone to be tied to her neck and cast into the sea:
I never experience God in camping or trees or nature. I hate nature, she told the Austin crowd as she paced the stage. God invented takeout and duvets for a reason.
I understand what you are saying. :)
* as of August 19, AD 2009, a liberal protestant SECT, not part of the holy, catholic and apostolic CHURCH.
Be rooted in Christ!
Bolz-Weber is the rising starlet of the ELCA.
This recovering alcoholic was the keynote speaker at the most recent ELCA National Youth Gathering.
Could be of interest to you.
The Washington compost is a sewer ... the “Style Section” is the second most foul and unnatural part thereof (Editorial Page is the worst ... right down there with Pravda under Stalin).
Last National Youth Gathering was in NOLA....appropriate setting for someone who could pass for a voodoo priestess.
