What in God’s name is this?

So a group of feminist Christians want everyone to start referring to God as ‘she’? Dear me, where do I begin with this one?

First of all, feminist Christians? Isn’t that like being a black Ku Klux Klan member?

The Bible is one of the most anti-female books in history!

Second, why would feminists want to claim God as theirs in the first place?

He’s petty and vindictive and is the archetypal abusive husband.

“I love you, but do exactly as I say or you’ll be punished. But I love you, honest” ...

You’d think they’d want to distance themselves as far as possible from that sort of thing.

And finally, God is a made up character, so it really doesn’t matter anyway.

If you want to pray to an imaginary strong, female deity, try Supergirl or Storm from the X-Men.

They’re just as real as God, their books are more exciting, they’re better role models for young girls and they don’t threaten you with eternal damnation if don’t believe in them!
