Posted on 11/12/2018 2:18:29 PM PST by Enlightened1
Lutheran pastor and author Nadia Bolz-Weber has argued that there should be no shame in consuming pornography, especially if it is "ethically sourced."
In a recent interview with the New Jersey-based LGBT publication Out In Jersey, Bolz-Weber discussed her upcoming new book on the issue of sexual ethics and the church.
In discussing pornography, Bolz-Weber explained that while she recognizes that there are "issues of justice and exploitation within the porn industry," she still does not believe that the "consumption of pornography should be shamed."
"There is ethically sourced porn. There are people who say it's sexual immorality, but if you take Liberals and Conservatives who show outrage and made a Venn diagram of those who consume pornography, you'd see a huge overlap," said Bolz-Weber to Out in Jersey.
"There are people who consume pornography in a shame based way, it would be horrible if people know because they are those who are morally outraged as Liberals or Conservatives. That's a lonely place to exist, let's take that part out of it. I'm not going to shame people when they already feel ashamed."
Bolz-Weber's comments have drawn criticism from some, including conservative Christian author Rod Dreher, who argued that Bolz-Weber "inadvertently indicates why progressive Christianity has no future."
"If there is a more cartoonish example of progressive Christianity than a foul-mouthed lady pastor praising consumption of 'ethically-sourced porn,' I can't think of it," wrote Dreher.

Is “Ethically Sourced Porn” like “Dolphin-Free Tuna?”
Those wacky Lutherans. Party animals in robes.
There should be a law against these people using the name Lutheran. They are as much Lutheran as Lucifer is.
I see the problem ...
Both a female and with a hyphenated name. What could go wrong?
Please tell me this is from The Onion.
Like Michelangelo’s David? Boticelli’s Venus? National Geographic?
Nope and check this quote out from the article,
“She was even picked to speak to 31,000 ELCA teenagers at last summer’s ELCA youth gathering despite the high volume of heretical statements she has made in the past.””
ELCA no doubt.
They hardly speak for all Lutherans.
How about "Cage-Free Eggs"?
How about going in and rescuing sex slaves for starters?
Thus always from Lutherans.
The Reverend Nadia Bolz-Weber
Exactly but he is a she.
How much you want to bet she voted for Hillary?
[One-third of her church is part of the LGBT community, and she also has a “Minister of Fabulousness”, Stuart, who is a drag queen.]
Well, of course. I guess Barack was busy.
