The insanity sweeping Western countries just got a little bit crazier and more insane. Less than a week after Christmas, news has come out that a Swedish church has published an advertisement in which it refers to Jesus using a gender-neutral pronoun.
The ludicrousness of such a characterization should be apparent to anyone, and indeed according to the report below it has “triggered a backlash,” which I suppose is a hopeful sign–but I really don’t see the insanity abating, at least not in the near future.
A church in a Swedish city has defended its choice of gender-neutral pronoun ‘hen’ in reference to Jesus in an advertisement. The church insists the word gives “new perspective.”
In November, the largest religious institution in the country, the Church of Sweden, advised its clergy to avoid terms like ‘Lord’ and ‘He’ in worship services in order to not highlight that God is male, in the new version of a handbook on how to conduct services. The move has triggered a backlash, with critics saying the change undermines the Christian concept of the Holy Trinity and politicizes faith.
