(Tea Party 247) – Girls at a catholic school in Brisbane, Australia, are reportedly being taught that the God of the Bible should not be referred to as “He,” because to do so is outdated and “offensive.”
Rather, the Creator of the universe, referred to throughout scripture with a male pronoun, is intended to be referred to as the oh-so-politically correct “Godself.”
According to reports from MSM, All Hallows’ School, Loreto College for Girls, and Stuartholme School (classroom pictured above) are among the prestigious Catholic schools in Brisbane that are adapting this blasphemous practice.
How can these Catholic school administrators profess to believe in the God of the Bible and think it’s acceptable to fall for this godless, progressive nonsense?
“As we believe God is neither male or female, Stuartholme tries to use gender-neutral terms in prayers … so that our community deepens their understanding of who God is for them, how God reveals Godself through creation, our relationships with others and the person of Jesus,” reads a statement from one of the institutions.
Apparently, this person thinks that all previous Bible translators and even the original authors themselves just weren’t woke enough when they used the male pronoun for God.
It gets worse.
At Loreto College for Girls, headmasters have even gone as far as to pull the word “Lord” from all their prayers. Why? Because this is a “male term” that is far too progressive for 2019.
Kim Wickham, the school’s principal, says that all prayers written for use at the school will not “assign God a gender,” because, as she and her clearly feminist administrators believe, being Catholic is all about using “inclusive language.”
In response to these shocking changes, Andrea Dean, director of the Catholic Office for the Participation of Women, expressed that she’s “thrilled” about removing gender-specific references to God and that it is a “terrific” idea to change all familiar language used to describe God for the sake of appeasing the LGBT left.
So, what about at the boys school?
St. Joseph’s College, an all-boys Catholic school, the administration has also gone feminist, replacing the term “brothers” with “sisters and brothers” and the term “brotherhood” with “international community.”
Oh. My. Gosh.
Interestingly, it is not clear if the all-girls school has replaced any female-specific language with language that includes boys, or any of the other 573 genders, for that matter.
Changing the word of the Lord to suit the absurd religious ideology of the time is utter blasphemy. There’s no two ways about it.
Sadly for these people, doing so doesn’t change the truth of the Word of God one iota.
“You can remove ‘Lord’ from your repetitive prayers but He is still Lord,” writes one commenter for the Christian Post. “One day all will bow before Him and confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.”
