Pope Francis and a gender-neutral God (Quo Vadis, Pope Francis? Part 248)

Liberal activists in the Church of England (Anglicans) want to refer to a gender-neutral God, even dropping “Our Father” from the prayer Jesus taught us.

The Church of England is led by Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, with whom Pope Francis has been collaborating to further his (the Pope’s) promotion of human fraternity and the confluence of all religions. The Church of England is supportive of LGBT and same-sex unions.

The Pope of course knows the Anglican position, but persists in forging unity of religions. The Pope already approves of same-sex civil unions and is very supportive of LGBT. Will he also try to change the words of the Lord’s Prayer?


The Church of England is considering referring to God in “non-gendered” terms during services, the Telegraph reported.

Breaking with centuries of tradition, bishops have announced they are launching a major “project on gendered language” this spring.

It may suggest that priests stop using the male pronouns “He” and “Him” when referring to God in some prayers, or even that they can drop the famous phrase “our Father” from the start of the Lord’s Prayer.

The Reverend Joanna Stobart, a vicar in the diocese of Guildford, Surrey, said that some clergy want to refer to God without saying He or Him, particularly in prayers of forgiveness for sins, according to the report.
