From The Telegraph:
“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. “We have some prayer options that are more gender-neutral than others.”
Readers, how many years do you give them before they decide that the scandal is not that Jesus is thought to be God but that he is thought to be a man?
Anyone or anything can be God but being male is bad, right?
The decision was met with some criticism. Christer Pahlmblad, an associate theology professor at Lund University in Sweden, told Danish newspaper Kristeligt Dagblad that the decision was “undermining the doctrine of the Trinity and the community with the other Christian churches.” More.
Reality check: The key difficulty is that Christianity understands itself as a nuclear family in which God is Father, Jesus is our brother, etc.
The whole thing is totally politically incorrect and could not survive in pre-Muslim Sweden.
