Let God be a 'she', says Church of England women's group

Wednesday, June 3, 2015 | Tag Cloud

(Worthy News)-- A group within the Church of England is calling for God to be referred to as female following the selection of the first female bishops, the UK Guardian reported.

The group wants the church to recognise the equal status of women by overhauling official liturgy, which is made up almost exclusively of male language and imagery to describe God.

Rev Jody Stowell, a member of Women and the Church (Watch), the pressure group that led the campaign for female bishops, said: "Orthodox theology says all human beings are made in the image of God, that God does not have a gender. He encompasses gender – he is both male and female and beyond male and female. So when we only speak of God in the male form, that's actually giving us a deficient understanding of who God is." --[wp_colorbox_media url="http://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/jun/01/church-of-england-womens-group-bishops" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]

  1. Obviously proving Jesus was a chauvinist when He instructed us to address God as our Father, and that the road to Hell is paved with idiot churchmen and women who all know more than God the Father or His Son.

  2. And God (he) said....In the last days those that choose not to turn away from sin will be given reprobate minds, headed for damnation.

  3. Just a small sin often opens a person to worse ones the Anglican rush to be all things to everyone seems to risk changing those things set by God as absolute. By this they are asking for Jesus to be the product of a same sex relationship.
