God is no longer male

The Scottish Episcopal Church has bowed to political correctness and neutered the God that they worship. I guess the whole “God the Father” thing is out too. How does that work now?

The new form of worship, which removes words such as 'Lord, he, his, him' and 'mankind' from services, has been written by the church in an attempt to acknowledge that God is 'beyond human gender'.

Waste of time, if you ask me.
