Archbishop of Canterbury Declares God Gender Neutral
[Breitbart] Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby has said that God is "not male nor female," after female bishops demanded the Church of England stop referring to God solely as "he."

The head of the worldwide Anglican communion told attendees at a lecture at St Martin-in-the-Fields in Trafalgar Square: "All human language about God is inadequate and to some degree metaphorical.

"God is not a father in exactly the same way as a human being is a father. God is not male or female. God is not definable.

"It is extraordinarily important as Christians that we remember that the definitive revelation of who God is was not in words, but in the word of God who we call Jesus Christ. We can’t pin God down."

Professor of Christian history Diarmaid MacCulloch backed Archbishop Welby’s statement, telling The Times that the reason God has been perceived as male is due to "patriarchal assumptions" of early Christian societies of Greece and Rome.

#1 Is the Archbishop lost in the pronoun usage weeds?

#2 Your Catholicism is a cult. Keep drinking the Popes koolaid until the massive migration of Muslims occupy the Vatican which will be very soon.

#4 This doesn't smell honest enough to dignify with the term "apophatic theology."

#8 So, the Archbishop and his supporting professor are clarifying their unwarranted assumptions about a subject that they admit they know nothing about.
That certainly straightens things up.

#9 Sez Welby, Archbishop of Jezebel,
Pansexual, "Well, to be equable,
There's naught to be said
I can't see from my bed:
The all-abled is therefore in-F-able.

#12 Dear Saviour, please bless our dispersal.
Free Byrd; silence Tallis and Purcell.
But first, a few odes
As we burn all the codes.
Three cheers for the church universal!

#13 Well, if any entity could be what ever 'gender' it wanted to be, it would certainly be God. I just hope God has a good sense of humor.

#14 No wonder Brits quit the church with this kind of leadership.

#16 They're lucky God isn't in the mood to smite anymore. I wonder what the 10th archdruid would say if the preceding 9 got vaporized by lightning any time they walked outside.
