Now this is something that is too outrageous and infuriating for words.
There used to be a time when the SJW agenda was slowly permeating into our culture. A little political correctness here, a little cultural appropriation outrage there, trigger warnings, protests, this and that.
But when your national church votes to stop using male-oriented words to refer to God the Father, Lord of the Universe, you know you have gone full SJW.
We thought it was bad when the Church of England encouraged schools to allow young children to “try on” different genders. But that has nothing on what the Church of Sweden is trying to do in the name of gender inclusivity.
The Blaze reports:
The church’s 251-member decision-making body decided on Thursday to update its 31-year-old handbook that directs leaders how to conduct a service. The manual instructs leaders the proper language to use during services, the liturgy to be used, hymnals to sing, among other aspects of a service, according to the Telegraph UK.
“We talk about Jesus Christ, but in a few places we have changed it to say ‘God’ instead of ‘he,’” Church of Sweden spokesperson Sofija Pedersen Videke told the Telegraph.
Now, for instance, the church will refer to the Trinity — which consists of God the Father, Jesus Christ the son and the Holy Spirit — as “God and the Holy Trinity.” Typically, the Trinity is referred to as “the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.”
The decision will officially take effect on May 20, during Pentecost, a Christian holiday. The church first discussed gender-neutral language as early as 1986.
This is absolute insanity. It is one thing for the secular government of a country to allow this obsession with gender-inclusiveness and gender-neutrality to continue, but for a church to join in is way too much.
The only people who would go to church and feel belittled by the male-oriented references to God Himself are people who have turned away from the Lord to begin with. If they are looking for a philosophy that includes the denial that gender is a basic reality of life on earth than the religion that follows the One who created gender in the first place is the wrong path to take!
Keep this madness out of God’s house! HE has no tolerance for it!
