The contours of a new liberal theology, one in accord with the new ideology of sex and gender, are starting to come together. (Liberal theologians have never found a new leftist ideology that they don’t like and won’t refashion theology around.) A rabbi has written an op-ed in the New York Times maintaining that God is transgender.
After the jump, read why he thinks so and read a response from a Bible scholar.
The argument hinges on confusing linguistic gender with natural gender, confusing a Being who transcends gender with someone who purports to change the sex he or she was born as, and scholarly bloopers of an embarrassing scale. But it exemplifies how liberal theologians often twist the Bible so that it can seem to support their ideology.
