I almost got sick on my keyboard when I saw this last week. I’m seriously doubting whether I will order anything else from this company.
I also threw up a little in my mouth when I saw it. I had an interesting discussion the other day: Are female pastors really pastors? Should we, as confessing, orthodox Lutherans, call female clergy “Pastor”? I will not.
Oh! I feel the same as Sam. No more Barbie dolls for me! I feel so upset I may cancel my new ELCA hymnbook too.
Is that real? You know, that just fits right in with the hyper-sexual Barbies they’ve been shoving at girls for years (ie. “My Scene” Barbies and Bratz dolls). No wonder so many young women are confused.
Okay–this is not a Barbie doll. Mattel does not manufacture “pastor” Barbies.
You can get “Pastor Grace” or the woman of color “Pastor Faith” at the old lutheran website.
So…that is where the boycott ought to begin.
McCain: I just thought it was pretty funny. You Germans are SO uptight.
Mutti– it’s an Old Lutheran product.
Where did this come from? Is it actually a Mattel product? If so, I agree with Sam. I’ll not give credance to this heretical doll by contributing to their business.
The chalice is very small… is that a comment about something?
Pr. Roemke said, “Should we, as confessing, orthodox Lutherans, call female clergy ‘Pastor’? I will not.”
While some favor crude appellations, I prefer the simple, accurate title, “Impastor.”
Although I am honored to be given the title of Pastor, it is a bit pre-mature. Give me about 5 months! Great title, btw, “Impastor.” I love it! I believe the sainted Rev. Dr. Marquart often referred to them as “priestesses,” which, apparently, really honked them off!
The ‘priestess barbie’ is one of many items the Old Lutheran site also sells; such as a “license to sin boldly” signed by Martin Luther, “Here I Stand” socks, and “Left behind” sweat pants with the words “left behind’ printed on the left cheek of the pants.
Yeah, a lot of it is funny, but it makes me wonder when the ELCA went from being an object of parody to a charicature of a Lutheran church, and do they know it?
As I read your Comments on the Female pastor doll, I wonder are you people sculpturally correct?
And this I do not wonder about,,,,Jesus is ashamed of you. I don’t care if your ordained, in seminary or a Hottentot,You all remind me of Lutherans I meet that are so full of there salvation that it is all about them, and not about the Christ. I am just a carpenter and no man of letters, I have been a Lutheran for 54 years and I minister in Prisons. I wonder, If what you just posted, would you say that to our Saviors face? Because you just did. I am sorry for you all. A warning to you. Ezekiel 3: 16-21
Peace be upon you, His peace I give to you
