Jen Hatmaker Tearfully Repents of Saying ‘God Gave us This Land’ + Erasing Natives in Virtual Prayer

Jen Hatmaker, popular mommy-blogger, podcaster, and pseudo-Christian pagan who continues to wield her platform to promote theologically perverse doctrines while climbing the ranks from “Gadfly False Teacher” to “Arch-Heretic,” has continued to out herself as a vessel of inhabitation for shifty-eyed swine who’d rather not go off a cliff.

When she’s not crying her eyes out and mourning the loss of Ruth Bader Ginsberg as a “Good and faithful servant,” she’s been advocating for all manner of LGBTQisms, recently saying that the “center of the Church” has failed to be black, gay, and transgendered.

Now, Hatmaker has issued a public apology for a prayer she gave at a January 21 Inaugural Interfaith Prayer Service, which was hosted virtually by the Washington National Cathedral, saying she did not mean to cause offense to Native Americans when she said:

Almighty God, you have given us this good land as our heritage.

Writing on Facebook, she says that as a result of the sentence, “My stomach has been hurting all day” and that “I am filled with regret that I offered yet another hazy, exceptional rendition of the origin story of colonization.”

I have one regret and thus apology. The very first sentence thanked God for giving us this land as our heritage. He didn’t. He didn’t give us this land. We took this land by force and trauma. It wasn’t an innocent divine transaction in which God bestowed an empty continent to colonizers. This is a shiny version of our actual history.

Hatmaker says that if she could go back in time and change it, she would say, “God, may we continue to be a people who reckon with our violent history, repent from the unjust systems we built, denounce white supremacy in all its forms past and present, and continue to work together to form a more perfect union.”
