The female of the species

I heard a short piece on radio 4 the other morning that featured a Christian lady who wants Anglicans to use more feminine pronouns when referring to "God"; she made the argument that God is "beyond gender" and that all humans (not just men) are made in the image of her God. Is this finally the female backlash against the insidious misogyny of most religions or are these people firmly in the realm of debating how many angels fit on a pin head?

As said in another place, if God is ineffable, the question is meaningless.

CB, true, in my experience the "ineffable" always seems very similar to (if not indistinguishable from) the imaginary.
