I believe that it is first order or naive religion that tries to affix gender to the divine. I believe that this is the phenomenon of projection. I am a proponent of second order approaches that is able to appreciate the myths and legends for the truths that they might be able to impart, without being subject to any forms of literalism.


And that's one of the many reasons I respect you Kresge... I would personally refer to you as an 'enlightened' X-tian in my everyday speach, not to say that you can't/shouldn't identify as you like, I just choose to designate your ilk's 'difference' from the typical(and IMO majority) 'Father-Godists' that go by the X-tian title also...
