God Apologizes for Gendered Language in Bible

From The Babylon Bee.

HEAVEN—Remorseful for using terms that fly in the face of contemporary progressive sensibilities, God Almighty issued an apology Tuesday for the gendered language found throughout His Word, the Holy Bible.

“The fact that gendered language has been non-offensive for millennia is no excuse, since through my omniscience I knew that by the time the 21st Century rolled around it would no longer be considered acceptable,” the statement, miraculously delivered through a heavenly messenger, read in part.

“Please accept my deepest and most sincere apologies for using such offensive terminology when describing humankind and myself throughout the pages of Scripture, and feel free to edit the eternal Word of God so that it aligns more closely with your current, advanced understanding of the nature of things,” he continued, adding that it was never His intention to advance the agenda of the patriarchy.

“My choices were unfortunate and regrettable, and I have no intention of trying to mansplain them away. I will do better.”

Bible publishers worldwide reportedly began work Tuesday on new translations of the Holy Scriptures, removing any pronouns or phrases which specify a gender either directly or by implication.

    I’m sure it was one of those paragons of Christianity like Nancy Pelosi or Hillary Clinton who got Him on the horn and urged Him to do this.

    Not satire: The 2017 World Watch List compiled by Open Doors lists North Korea as the “most oppressive place in the world for Christians.” This article includes links to “Violations of Freedom of Religion or Belief in North Korea” and “Defector Says Christianity on the Rise in North Korea Despite Extreme Persecution.”
