How Can Women Become Fully Included Christians?

April 9, 2015

Trelawney Grenfell-Muir:

“Language both reflects and shapes our worldviews. Do we truly believe God/ess has a Y chromosome? I highly recommend Rosemary Radford Ruether’s book Sexism and God-Talk. When we use predominantly male language for God/ess, that sends a clear message that God/ess is more male than female – thus, men are more like God/ess than women. Johan Galtung defines this kind of male chosen-ness as ‘cultural violence.'”

Exactly.
