Australian Catholic girls’ schools drop ‘gendered language’ for God
June 03, 2019
CWN Editor's Note: Catholic girls’ schools in Australia have adopted “gender neutral” language to address God in prayer. Some examples of the usage include speaking of “Godself” rather than “Himself,” and naming the Trinity “the Creator, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit.” The goal, a school official explained, is “so that our community deepens their understanding of who God is for them, how God reveals Godself through creation, our relationships with others, and the person of Jesus.”The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).

School officials took an audacious, self serving, ridiculous approach to changing language Christ Himself used and taught His apostles to pray to God Our Father. This is just the prelude to more liberal language to come. Officials next will be using LBGQT language to make the school all inclusive.
