why do some priests say "Our Father/Mother "greenspun.com : LUSENET : Catholic : One Thread
The worst liturgical experience I had was one where Mass was celebrated in a prayer house and the Priest kept saying Our Father/Mother.
Jesus taught us to call God our Father, not our mother, I'm sure that the ancient texts can easily confirm this. Any polygolts out there, can a noun in ancient Aramaic or Greek be confused in Gender? I don't think so but I would love to hear others opinions.

Many priests are influenced by the feminist-type thinking which says God is "mother and father." True in a way, but God the Father is the first person of the Blessed Trinity, if the feminists like it or not. And the words of the Mass are not to be tampered with!

Go to your local Collage or University and review the course outlines for Womens Studies. You will find the basis of such referance.
These courses teach hatred toward men, families and the basic Christian belief.
Many classes are based on the study of WICCA and essentially Goddess worship. Somehow this WICCA is aclaimed to be a religion on one hand when feminist want free speach protection and suddenly turns to educational history when applied as a doctorate study in our state and federally funded Universities.
Explain the motorvation here??
Ans: Womens Studies are not about equality for women or to help society, but to exploit the public on issues that most people fear addressing. Feminism and women studies do not reflect the views of mainstran Americian Women.
Anti CHurch Anti Family Anti men
Pro abortion Pro Harrassment industry Pro Rape Industry Pro abuse Industry Pro Gay/Lesbian/Transgender Industry
DO you see the pattern yet?
Does VOTF fit the pattern also??
Are the backers of VOTF connected to the feminist movement.
Many people, including priests hear the same bias,politically correct media sensationalist who propagate the same unfounded statements from feminist doctrine that these statements become the de-facto standard.
THere is an old saying " A lie stated frequently enough becomes the percieved truth"
