Girls Can Be Pastors, Too
How Pastor Nadia Bolz-Weber responded to trolls who reacted negatively to a female religious leader.
- When I started blogging and people started paying attention to stuff that I was writing and doing, I very quickly had detractors. And so, people would write stuff about me on their blogs. And they wouldn't use my title, which is Pastor Nadia Bolz-Weber, because they believed that girls shouldn't be pastors. And so they made up an insult instead that was Pastrix Nadia Bolz-Weber. And to be clear, there are a million reasons I should not be a pastor. But being a girl is literally not one of them. So I titled my first memoir Pastrix, which was on the New York Times bestseller list, so what that means is that if people are keeping score at home, I won that round.
