God got a Sex-Change.

God is no longer a man, says Scottish Episcopal church

The Scottish Episcopal Church has caused controversy by removing masculine references to God in a new order of service.

The new form of worship, which removes words such as 'Lord, he, his, him' and 'mankind' from services, has been written by the church in an attempt to acknowledge that God is 'beyond human gender'.
Episcopalian bishops have approved the introduction of more 'inclusive' language, which deliberately removes references suggesting that God is of male gender
Traditionalists have criticised the changes on the grounds that they smack of political correctness and because they believe they are not consistent with the teachings of the Bible.
The alterations have been made to provide an alternative to the established 1982 Liturgy, which, like the Bible, refers to God as a man.
The new order of service, which can be used by priests if they have difficulties with a male God, has been produced by the church's Liturgy Committee in consultation with the Faith & Order Board of General Synod and the College of Bishops.
The controversial changes were discussed at the church's General Synod recently. The minutes of the synod reveal that female priests had asked why God was still referred to as a man.
The altered version of the 1982 Liturgy sees masculine pronouns removed when they refer to God and the new approach has even been extended to humans.

For example, the word 'mankind' has been taken out and replaced with 'world'.
Some senior religious figures have objected to the new form of words.

'It is political correctness,' said Rev Stuart Hall of the Scottish Prayer Book Society and Honorary Professor of Divinity at the University of St Andrews

'It is quite unnecessary. The word man in English - especially among scientists - is inclusive of both sexes.

'Those who try to minimise references to God as the Father and Christ as his Son have great difficulties, because the New Testament is shot through with these references.'
Direct quotations from the Bible have been spared change, because of a reluctance to interfere with the word of God.

I have always thought that if indeed God existed, he (or rather it) would be neither male nor female. But would have properties of both. I mean if he had the ability to put into motion (some way or another) two separate genders, then he would have to have intimate knowledge of both.

makes sense to me... I've never thought of my creator as a "man" or a "woman"

Lay off the pipe? Does god reproduce? Now while the guy you quoted said he has both female and male properties, I would say that god has neither. God doesn't need a dick for fucking or a vagina to have fucked.

That's if there is a god.

Why is god given a paternal role in the bible? It wasn't until the 1900's that women were even considered to be put in a position of power. Another reason why I say the bible has nothing to do with god even if it does exist.

What was the reason? Because God portrays Himself to His people as a Father? That somehow demonstrates that the bible has nothing to do with God?

Ohhhh-kay...

I wasn't really talking about actual, physiological/biological properties lol. I mean sort of like... emotionally. Spiritually. Men and women are different in more ways than having different genitals. If indeed we were schemed up by someone, the whole different body types thing could have just been slapped on there for the necessary purpose of reproduction.

The father, even today is considered to be the provider in most families. Your statement didn't really make a lot of sense, but it was 2:30 in the morning.

Oops, but this is in the middle of the afternoon. At least it makes sense. I didn't say it was to put down women. I'm saying that men wrote the bible. Again, women weren't given roles outside of cleaning, cooking, and baby-havin' until recently in history. Of course those men writing the bible weren't gonna make the creator of the universe and provider of all life a woman.

I'd have to say... yes. He does in fact reproduce. Sort of. The bible says that we are all his children. So in a way, if he somehow seeded the earth then yeah I would say that in his own way, he reproduced. Just because we are not exactly like him wouldn't necessarily mean that he didn't reproduce. Supposedly he created other beings besides just man so I guess he could have reproduced there too.

Religion is used by those in power to control the populace only in a theocracy, a classic example of which today is the Islamic Republic of Iran. There are no such Christian theocracies, so thus the Bible is not being used by anyone in power to control any populace. The Bible stands on it's own and needs no secular dictates or coercion to be accepted by anyone.

Revelation 3:20 (KJV)
Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

Note that Jesus does not force Himself on or require anyone to believe in Him by any manner other than through their own free will.

So god has super-jizz that impregnates anything and nothing?

Oh yeah, and if god reproduces, that would mean that somebody had to produce god.

God creates, not reproduces.
