In a podcast promotional for Jen Hatmaker’s For the Love podcast, self-professed “bull-dyke” ELCA pastor who melted down virginity rings and formed them in the graven image of female genitalia to give to Gloria Steinheim, Nadia Bolz Weber, made up her own Beatitudes for people living in unrepentant sin.
Jesus preached his Beatitudes during his Sermon on the Mount. Jesus turned conventional wisdom on its head, and spoke the heart of God for the humble, the meek, the mourning, the merciful, the pure in heart, and those who hunger and thirst after righteousness.
Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled. (Matthew 5:6)
Bolz Weber’s beatitudes, however, included blessings of happiness upon sex-workers, ‘closeted’ gay people, and illegal aliens.
Blessed are …the sex workers…the closeted…without documentation…
Hatmaker, who endorsed gay marriage in 2017, wept at the words of Bolz Weber, whose words she felt were apparently more profound than Christ’s.
