The Church of Sweden (Lutheran) has made a suicide pact with the world, the flesh and the Devil. HERE (Not my translation):
A steering group within the Church of Sweden has for some time been working on developing a new church manual. This is considered to be should encourage “a more inclusive worship language”. [Google Translate version makes more sense than their brains.] God may now find himself deprived of his male gender – in the sermon referring to God as “he” or “the Lord” joins the new church handbook as a correction of misdemeanor.
But the proposals also have many advocates within the Swedish Church. The outcome of Thursday’s polls is therefore an open question. How it went, Archbishop Antje Jackelén will tell a press conference on Thursday. Jackelén has himself profiled himself as a renewer of the Swedish Church, among other things. by taking Islam’s creed “Allahu Akbar” as its language and emphasizing that Jesus of Christians should not be set higher than Islam’s prophet Muhammad.
Social excitement has not been able to figure out [Google can be amusing!] if there are corresponding proposals to make Jesus gender neutral and remove names like “he” and “human son” from the worship vocabulary. It is also unclear if there is a goal at the Swedish Church to implement the same gender changes in the Bible.
Fr James Martin, SJ, has not yet commented.
ICEL has not released its statement of support in accord with the new translation laws… yet.
The head of the Church in Sweden, Archbishop Antje Jackelén.
She looks rather like the grandmother of half the people I grew up with in Minnesota with a really bad hat.
