Episcopalians (in DC) decide God is Transgender !!
This is the infiltration of all aspects of culture that scares me the most. It is not funny. It is an orchestrated effort to destroy everything, including our faith. Language matters.
Our He/She/It who art in Heaven…
MUCH feminist theology? In the history of the study of the Bible, how much flipping feminist theology could there be to study? There is some passage in the Bible which mentions, as some interpret, that GOD had breasts! So these idiots make the point that GOD is gender neutral. And persuaded an entire diocese of an American denomination to remove HE and HIM when referring to GOD! They overlooked all of the hundreds of references to GOD THE FATHER!!!!
Quote: “Having studied much feminist theology in my masters’ degrees, I wrote a thesis on liberation and freedom and non-equality in feminist theology and existential counseling,” Calkins told the delegates. “Many, many women that I have spoken with over my past almost 20 years in ordained ministry have felt that they could not be a part of any church because of the male image of God that is systemic and that is sustained throughout our liturgies. Many of us are waiting and need to hear God in our language, in our words and in our pronouns.”
U.S. Episcopal Diocese Votes To Stop Using Masculine Pronouns For God
“Expanding our language for God”

God will no longer be referred to as He or Him in the Episcopal Church Diocese of Washington, D.C., which passed a resolution last week barring all use of masculine pronouns when referring to the Almighty. They will be updating their Book of Common Prayer as a result.
According to LifeSiteNews, the resolution called for an end to “gendered language for God” and was passed quickly by delegates to the Diocese’s 123rd Convention.
“If revision of the Book of Common Prayer is authorized, to utilize expansive language for God from the rich sources of feminine, masculine, and non-binary imagery for God found in Scripture and tradition and, when possible, to avoid the use of gendered pronouns for God,” the resolution stated.
“Over the centuries our language and our understanding of God has continued to change and adapt,” the drafters of the resolution stated, emphasizing that masculine pronouns “limit our understanding of God.”
“By expanding our language for God, we will expand our image of God and the nature of God,” they stated.
Some members of the clergy feel the radical measure did not go far enough. Rev. Linda R. Calkins from St. Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church in Laytonsville, Maryland, cited scripture that allegedly says God has “breasts.” According to her understanding of the verse in Genesis Chapter 17, when God tells Abraham “I am El Shaddai,” that means “God with breats.”
“Having studied much feminist theology in my masters’ degrees, I wrote a thesis on liberation and freedom and non-equality in feminist theology and existential counseling,” Calkins told the delegates.
