Liberal Lutheran "Pastor" Nadia Bolz-Weber Gifts Vagina Statue Made From Melted Purity Rings To Gloria Steinem

One can't help but wonder what choice words Martin Luther would use for a woman ordained as a pastor in the denomination which bears his name taking rejected "purity rings" and forming them into a statue of a vagina to be given to a radically pro-abortion secular feminist. That's just what hilariously-liberal Lutheran pastor Nadia Bolz-Weber pledged she'd do some time ago, and at the 2019 Makers Conference, that's just what she did.

At the conference, set up by the feminist organization which "exists to accelerate the women’s movement, through stories of real-life experiences that ignite passion and action", Bolz-Weber made a show of protesting evangelical "purity culture" and bestowed her long-promised sculpture of a vulva to pro-abortion, second-wave feminist Gloria Steinem.

“Every single thing and person that seemed so powerful and inescapable, I name them and then I just go ‘footnote,’” said Bolz-Weber, who founded Denver’s House for All Sinners and Saints church.

“I mean, seriously, Pontious Pilate? He’s a footnote. Your bully from middle school? Footnote. Your depression? Footnote. Your s****y boss? Footnote. All of those things are very real, and the harm that they have on us and the world is also real."

“But to me, the whole point of having faith is it allows us to believe in a bigger story than the one we tell ourselves. Those purity rings are a footnote,” Bolz-Weber declared, showing off the statuette.

Most epic moment EVER. 👏 Nadia Bolz-Weber melted down women's purity rings to make a vagina sculpture, which she presented to @GloriaSteinem at the #MAKERSConference ✊@Sarcasticluther @SweetBirdStudio

“The [rings] we couldn’t melt down spell out the word ‘freedom’ and were woven into this heart,” Bolz-Weber added. “Isn’t it amazing?” she said, handing the sculpture to Steinem as the audience roared with applause.

Bolz-Weber, author of Shameless: A Sexual Reformation, first announced the project at last year's iteration of the Makers Conference, declaring her desire to “take down” the “church's teachings around sex” and evangelical purity culture.

“This thing about women that the church has tried to hide and control and that is a canvas on which other people can write their own righteousness ― it’s actually ours,” Bolz-Weber explained to the Huffington Post. “This part of me is mine and I get to determine what is good for it and if it’s beautiful and how I use it in the world.”
