Family Values, God and Irony

Does anyone else see the irony of a religion that has a masculine God, who has no mate, who impregnates a female, who has a son who has no wife,  and then has the nerve to tell us what a family is???  I hope I am not offending any family members with this, but I have had it with people who keep talking about marriage and family and look at the deities of their religion!  There is no female counterpart to the Christian God.  He is alone.  The mere mention that Christ could have had sex with a woman elicits howls of rage at the thought that Christ, who was supposed to be fully male, would even think about having sex with a woman.  Why didn’t he and why couldn’t he?  Isn’t that what a man is supposed to do?  Get married, have sex and create children?  And the Catholic Church goes on and on about family and marriages when it won’t even allow its priests or nuns to even think about getting married, let alone have children. 

So what brings all this about?  Someone named Kyle left this comment on the ex-gay-for-pay DL Foster’s hatesite:

 

Pastor Foster the worship of a “Female” deity is rife within the homosexual movement. The fact is that all Angels have “male” names. God is in the Masculine. It is not until the creation of man that God creates a female as a help meet. You are correct that it is cultish in that the feminine deity worship is not Christianity but rater Eastern pagan thought.

And even the angels are MALE.  Let me get this straight:  God is male without a wife.  Christ is male without a wife.  The angels are male ad there are no female angels.  Hmmm.  If anything, this is sounding more and more like a religion gay men would want to be involved in!  🙂

    or recognize divorce… When I was divorced, my ex got an annulment…  well, I say, what about our children, aren\’t they now bastards?  Oh no, we have a way around that, special dispensation.  Talk about hypocrites – it\’s all about the money, and power.  One wonders why I have such disdain for organized religion, and why many are leaving it…  I know lots of people who worship female deities – myself included – and they aren\’t homosexual (not being judgmental at all either..).  In fact. most are the most down to earth, honest, devoted people you\’d ever meet; unlike alot of the hypocritical  members of certain churches I used to know…

    Hi Keri,
    I agree with you about the hypocrites and the money part.  Most of these non-profits are just pocket-liners for those who start them up.  In fact, I just heard that Focus on the Family (based in Colorado) just gave $250,000 to the stop gay marriage campaign here in California.  FoF is a non-profit and they aren\’t supposed to be involved in political campaigns.  I can already feel a letter being written to the IRS about this…

    Maybe, but the funny hats and costumes need work. Truly they need some fashion work done!

    Hey Rob!  I\’ll have to disagree with you on the \’funny hats and costumes\’ part!  🙂  I have a friend who is an Episcopalian priest and he loves getting dressed up in the robes and burning incense and so on…  Of course, he takes his job as a priest very seriously, but as he says, it can\’t be serious all the time!

    If you look at the misogyny of history (or at least Biblical history), it becomes clear that men created God in their own image – as a man. Makes it much easier to then justify and sell notions of genocide, rape and pillage when it’s “God’s” will. Like with the anti-gay industry today, run mostly by men, “God’s objection to homosexuality” is pretty much euphemistic for heterosexual men who are offended by male/male sex (namely anal), as opposed to being equally offended by female/female sex.
    When you think about it, it’s really the epitome of cowardice, and the antithesis of “traditional masculinity” (of which they are so fond) to need to hide behind a god in order to say what you mean.
