Church Of Sweden Votes To Become Pathetic Joke

"But isn't the Church of Sweden a pathetic joke already?" you ask in bewildered confusion. Sure it is but it just got more so by voting in a new Handbook which removes masculine references to God.

So out goes the patriarchal oppression of the Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit; no more of that gender role consolidation for these latter day Vikings. They get this instead, straight out of the new Handbook:

Father, Mother, Son, Sister? Good Question.

“God, Holy Trinity, Father and Mother, Son – Sister and Brother, and Spirit – Lifeguard and Inspirator, lead us to your depths of wealth, wisdom and knowledge”.

Well done, Swedes, you've transitioned God into a shemale and in the case of the Holy Spirit, some kind of swimming pool or beach attendant. The Church of Sweden's leaderene, Archbishop Antje Jackelen, explains the reasoning behind the new language.

Some Kind of Joke?

"Theologically, for instance, we know that God is beyond our gender determinations, God is not human," argued Jackelen as reported by Sweden's TT news agency.

True enough, Jackelen, God is pure spirit and beyond all things but nonetheless became Incarnate as  a Man, Jesus. And this same God who is beyond time, space and "gender determinations" has revealed Himself to us in masculine terms; as Lord not Lady, as Son not Daughter, as Father not Mother, as King not Queen.

Christians believe this is a given, quite literally by God Himself, and it's intolerable to feminists like Jackelen, so they change it. As we've seen, Jesus who was notoriously a man, becomes Son and Sister, which is fine except that that person never existed. And there you have it, the religion of the imaginary Swedish friend.

A Swede

There is no Brother-Sister Jesus, no Father-Mother God except in the overwrought imagination of the Swedes and their allies in other denominations. These have voted in a new religion, the religion of the imaginary, androgynous, hermaphrodite friend, as opposed to the Faith revealed to us by God and founded on Christ. 

Feel free to believe one or the other or neither, but don't pretend both are Christian. They're not.

Your Friend,

What do you expect from a bunch of dykes who can't even figure out with whom they're supposed to have sex.

For me and mine, we'll keep a boy God (boy oh boy!)

But... but... Adrienne, gender is a construct!

I think an Episcopalian was the first ecclesiastic to popularise that blasphemous phrase, back in the '70s in New York; he wanted to justify priestesses.

It's strange to see entire denominations lose their faith so quickly, which makes me wonder how much they had in the first place. Perhaps not very much.

They need to set up a whole new denom -- Lesbyterianism. Watch those pews fill up with cargo shorts and ball caps!

How do these people? get away with this type of crap? Have the parishioners no balls either...

...And the churches are empty.

They might benefit from a troop of liturgical dancers (and minstrels) from Lambeth Palace.

That, LL, is an excellent idea. Nothing quite like a good dose of liturgical dance to get the spirits up!
