    What if God had chosen to incarnate into a woman or LGBTQ?

    ExxtianErin poses the former question, and I would add on the latter.

    Imagine how especially different the U.S. QOP would look if God had chosen to incarnate as LBGTQ.

    Same thing as with the man that promoted Socialist values. They’d kill them.

    I think she would have fanatical followers, and others who just didn't understand. If you believed in her, she'd provide wonderful gifts, expecting nothing in return except faithful worship. She'd tell you how to live, and what to read. She'd name her network OWN, because she OWNS us.

    How do you know she didn't? It'd be no weirder than a lot of the other conspiracies about early Christianity.

    As for LGBTQ identities, even the canonical Jesus was a (suspiciously, given his age) unmarried man with a devoted crew of other unmarried men men who he went naked fishing with, who seemed to have no sexual inclinations at all despite having women hanging alll over him, and who mostly hung out with social outcasts and prostitutes. He was always the guy to sneak wine into the wedding, but never walked the aisle. Ace lives matter. He's got to have some queer cred by modern standards.

    I personally like to ship Judesus.

    The idea that Judas and Jesus were tight, and Jesus had Judas sell him out.

    It would be even spicier if they were lovers.

    At any rate, yes, John's book seems very light on straight interest.

    Maybe that's why modern christians hate literally everything he stood for so much?

    This is at least slightly implied by Jesus Christ Superstar. Judas doesn't REALLY get upset until Jesus starts hanging with Mary...

    Given that Yahweh was originally an androgynous god, and made one of the Adam an androgynous entity, that one of the creation stories used to create the rib woman, Eve, it may not matter as Yahweh had a feminine side.

    The other creation story does not show androgyny so it may be to us to decide about gender and equality.

    Christians sure have it in for women and gays though.

    Muslims much more so. But then all cultures (which religions spring from) generally have expected gender roles.

    Mmmm. Not really. Islam is just still a dominant force, whereas Christianity is dying.

    Also, it is very true that Islam was very good for women, compared to the society when it was formed.

    That would not happen because there is no God first of all, and because the Abrahamic religions stem from the male urge to dominate and control, and not from anything that a female God would represent.

    I don't think the US would even exist if the God of the Bible had been female. The entire world would look so different that it would be impossible to speculate. And men would find ways to change that God to male anyway.
    The Authoritarians

    Donald Trump was the fat line of coke conservatives snorted, thinking it would boost their energy and weight loss. Now they're waking up in a cheap motel room, picking at their scabs and denying that they have a problem.
