The Gender Wars
So God has been dragged into the Gender Wars?
Just when you think things couldn’t get any crazier, along they come with some concept that beggars belief.
Who cares whether God is a male or female? I know he is always depicted by artists as some sort of glowing white haired, white bearded benevolent old man like a sort of Santa on steroids but that just artists for you. Why does God have to have a gender at all? Why is he supposed to belong to the same DNA family as Homo Sapiens? If God exists he could just be some kind of amorphous intelligent jelly?
We know that Jesus was a man because, well, he was. Maybe he just identified as a man but he always referred to himself as male. Equally he always referred to his dad as “he” which implies a male, as does the term “father”. Jesus was supposed to be the son of God [a male reference, if ever?] but is also somehow God himself so while he knows everything he somehow isn’t “woke”.
Somewhere in a galaxy far far away there may be another intelligent species of slugs [go on – prove me wrong]. That species might have fifteen natural genders [I’m not sure how that would work but maybe the “woke” will understand?] That alien species is presumably created by the same God and being as narrow minded as Homo Sapiens they will assume that God is also a slug and probably their “woke” slugs will be fighting amongst themselves as to which of the fifteen genders God belongs.
God only knows what gender God is.
What does it matter anyway?
Now children, open your herbooks and sing.
That should read “Now Persons of Less Than Eighteen Years, open your theirbooks and sing”? Can’t hurt the feelings of young people?
During all the times that the Bible was written, and rewritten, the various societies considered women as little else but chattels, with very few rights. It would be impossible for anyone at that time, to think that there would be a female divine being. My wife, however, was convinced that God was a woman, with a sense of humour. Who else would give a man a brain and a penis, but only enough blood to operate one at a time.
Yes, the either/or blood supply can be amusing or frustrating according to circumstances. Also, why did It/He/Her place the sewage outlet next to the entertainment centre?
