Elizabeth A. Johnson

  • ... the way in which a faith community shapes language about God implicity represents what it takes to be the highest good, the profoundest truth, the most appealing beauty. ... While officially it is rightly and consistently said that God is spirit and so beyond identification with either male or female sex, yet the daily language of preaching, worship, catechesis, and instruction conveys a different message: God is male, or at least more like a man than a woman, or at least more fittingly addressed as male than as female.

  • Whether consciously or not, sexist God language undermines the human equality of women made in the divine image and likeness.

  • Benevolent patriarchy is still patriarchy.

Elizabeth A. Johnson, U.S. theologian, writer

(1941)
