So ... what's the new, socially acceptable pronoun for God gonna be? ?SHE or IT??! Perhaps the combination of both i.e. SHIT!

I hate liars
If you noticed, that's exactly what demoncraps worship... they have excrement on their minds, and in it !!!

That god created bulls so perhaps the new.. . acceptable pronoun for God is Bullshit?
If God had intended for libtards to ski He would have made bullshit white.

You know, that church actually has a very good point. Why would an omnipotent, incomprehensible cosmic entity even need a gender anyway? I mean, it's the only one of it's kind and it doesn't reproduce, so it has not point.

Honestly, I always thought if (capital "G") god exists, that god would either be genderless, or gender-fluid. Or both in some way. But not stuck in any known gender, especially male.

I mean, didn't the greek gods and Loki switch physical genders at the drop of a hat depending on which non-deity they had the hots for at the moment? And they were from a species of deities.

But, of course, these fundies are too sexists, lacking in imagination, and stuck in their ways to even consider this.

An acceptable pronoun for God is bullshit? I agree.

HEAVEN FORBID THAT AN INVISIBLE, FORMLESS SUPER-BEING THAT CREATED AND EMBODIES EVERYTHING ACTUALLY EMBODY AND TRANSCEND ALL GENDER!

Even the Bible in the original Languages implies that YHVH is androgynous. The Hebrew Shekhinah is considered Female!

This channel is hilarious.
It's for fans of Trump and there are like five active members.

Swedish, unlike English, has a gender-neutral third-person singular pronoun. Granted, that's a relatively recent linguistic development, only being in common use for less than a decade, but it's there.

Right, because if God was a SHE, then we wouldn't be able to treat women so poorly. Reminds me of the old poster -- God is coming, and she is pissed!

As creativerealms says, God = bullshit seems about right.

It really doesn't matter what pronoun you call God.

...Wait. If the big G is a triune being according to some branches of Christianity, why haven't we been referring to them as "they" all along? (I know, I know, patriarchy and chauvinism and such.)

The church set its own rules. If you don't like them, worship elsewhere.

(And if I'm sure there's a God, there is no doubt in my mind God's an It.)

@Zinnia

That would require Evangelical Christians to admit that their religion is polytheistic instead of monotheistic.

This would appear to be a conversation among some seriously backward coprophilic children, trying to copy what their old uncle Harry (black sheep of the family) said after too many cups of rum punch at dinner.

Snow? As in, played by Donald Sutherland?

It hurts you what others do so much.

We Swedes don't talk English all the time, dolt. Our pronouns for he and she are han and hon. Something in the middle is "hen", a relatively new pronoun that has people like these getting their knickers in knots over this "horrendous" thing.

Oh, and WE are not the ones thinking SHIT was the alternative to HE, Inbred.

That cologne sure ain't smart enough to join Mensa on its own! If everything that is white were racist, some 80-90 percent of the Swedish population would be racist. Luckily only about 20 percent are openly racist (they're the ones who vote for our Nazi-light party).

Btw, where did that headline come from? I'd guess any of the Swedish "relatives" to Breitbart or InfoWars is guilty...

After googling: It was a bishop of Gloucester (not in Sweden, FYI) that began, apparently, with saying we should only use the title (God), that God is above mere human genders. The Swedish Church is mostly of a similar mind, though, and it does not, in general, use the word "hen" in fear of offending someone (yup, we have sensitive conservatard snowflakes over here, too).

We are made in your 'God's image. Male. Female.

Therefore God is a woman.

You cannot deny the duality of the Divine.

When God made man, She was only joking.

Lends new meaning to the American colloquial phrase "Madder than a wet hen".
