For as long as they’ve existed, radical liberals have tried to destroy God.
They’ve been quite unsuccessful. For obvious reasons.
But the damage and fallout from these lib efforts to shrink the church and weaken morality is everywhere. And we’ve all seen it – the normalization of porn, higher crime, sexual predators in politics and the media (everywhere in the media), and the gradual persecution of the American church.
Mind you, every historical attempt to say that ‘God is dead’ ends in hilarious failure. Liberals never seem to learn the truth.
This time, though, libs have a different strategy. They aren’t insisting that God is dead.
They’re just insisting he’s gender-fluid. And I’m not making this up at all.
The Independent Journal Review reports:
The Church of Sweden last week advised members of its clergy to use the gender-neutral term “God” instead of “he” or “the Lord.”
Church of Sweden spokesperson Sofija Pedersen Videke [said] the church now prefers gender-neutral terms:
“We talk about Jesus Christ, but in a few places we have changed it to say ‘God’ instead of’“he.’ We have some prayer options that are more gender-neutral than others.”

As offensive as this is, it’s not the worst part. Not even close – the worst part is the church’s defense of this absurdity.
Archbishop Antje Jackelen, Sweden’s first female archbishop, justified the changes.
“Theologically, for instance, we know that God is beyond our gender determinations, God is not human,” she said.
I’m going to take a deep breath, and calmly address this situation.
Technically speaking, Ms. Jackelen, you’re correct. God is not human, and can therefore be neither female nor male. That was never in dispute. We’ve all known this our entire lives.

We don’t refer to God as a ‘he’ because we’ve decided that men are just better than women. We refer to God as a ‘he’ because that’s how the Bible does it. We refer to God as a ‘he’ because that’s how he chose to reveal himself when coming to earth.
It wasn’t our choice. It was his. He had his reasons. Maybe we shouldn’t mess with them.
I need a drink.
The Church of England published guidelines for its nearly 5,000 schools, instructing them to allow children to “explore gender identity.”
A child may choose the tutu, princess’s tiara and heels and/or the fireman’s helmet, tool belt and superhero cloak, without expectation or comment.
Ah…so this is about lib politics, then.
You don’t say.
