Just as God is our Father, so God is also our Mother.

Daily Mail 

Our non-gendered parent who art in heaven: Priests could stop using male pronouns 'He' and 'Him' when referring to God in prayers and drop phrase 'our Father' from the Lord's Prayer

  • God could be referred to in 'non-gendered' terms in Church of England services
  • Bishops announced they are launching major 'project on gendered language
  • Both Daily Mail reporters (people who can't write) and Woke activists (people who won't read) are ill informed twerps who don't know any theology. 

    Here, for example is the Vatican website quoting - with approval - the 14th century anchoress Julian of Norwich, also known, indecently* as Juliana of Norwich.

    It is a characteristic of God to overcome evil with good.

    Jesus Christ therefore, who himself overcame evil with good, is our true Mother. We received our ‘Being’ from Him ­ and this is where His Maternity starts ­ And with it comes the gentle Protection and Guard of Love which will never ceases to surround us. 

    Just as God is our Father, so God is also our Mother.

    I am chalking this one up for the Catholics, even though the CoE also has a claim on Julian of Norwich as she lived before Henry VIII.

    *Oops "indecently" above should read "incidentally." I am leaving it in to prove that the devil must have jarred my elbow while I was typing.
