A group of female priests with the Church of England have moved for the denomination to start referring to God as a “she” during the weekly liturgy, stating that to make mention of God solely in the male pronoun is sexist, Christian News Network reports.
According to reports, the group Women and the Church (WATCH), which was behind the push to allow women to serve as bishops in the denomination, is now in talks with the Liturgical Commission for a change in the pronoun used during services when speaking of God. The group says that to refer to God in the masculine devalues women.
(This is pure blasphemy and heresy. Those who truly follow Christ know the Father: “All things have been committed to me by my Father. No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.” At no point does Jesus refer to the Father as a woman. These WATCH members are not following Christ. This is the type of drivel that has taken root in some corners of the American Church as well.)
