Mercy! Now they want to start referring to God as a 'She'..

Women priests are campaigning to refer to God as 'She' in prayers, hymns, and in church services.
Pressure group Watch, or Women and the Church, claim that referring to God as a man suggests that men are 'more god-like than women' and argue that both male and female language should be used in religious services.            
The Rev Emma Percy, chaplain of Trinity College, Oxford, and a member of Watch said: 'When we use only male language for God we reinforce the idea that God is like a man and, in doing so, suggest that men are therefore more like God than women.'
She told the Sunday Times: 'This means that women can see themselves as less holy and less able to represent Christ in the world... If we take seriously the idea that men and women are made in the image of God both male and female language should be used.'
'Keeping silent about the feminine aspect of God, helps keep our theology androcentric, keeps us thinking, at some level, that God is male, that male images of God are somehow more accurate.'
She added: 'To talk about God as 'her' - not all the time, but often - widens our concept of the divine. God ceases to be an old man in the sky, but becomes someone 'bigger' than can be described by just one pronoun.
See these people just want to make Jesus come earlier than planned..
