 Vegas Shooting Victims File Lawsuits Against Mandalay Bay, Event Organizer
 Lawsuit also filed against purported 
shooter’s estate

Victims of the October 1 mass shooting in Las Vegas filed lawsuits against the owners of the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino, in addition to the concert promoter responsible for the Route 91 festival and alleged shooter Stephen Paddock’s estate.
Reuters reports on the five lawsuits filed in a Los Angeles Superior Court Monday:
The largest of the lawsuits was filed on behalf of 450 people who were either injured in or witnessed the shooting, while the other four were brought by families of people who were killed or severely injured.
MGM Resorts International, which operates Mandalay Bay, and Mandalay Corp, the owner of the hotel, failed to spot red flags that may have preceded Paddock’s rampage, one lawsuit alleges, adding that hotel staff was not properly trained for the event and that adequate security measures were not in place.
Lawyers for the victims say the suits were filed in California, despite the shooting taking place in Las Vegas, because a large majority of victims resided in the state and because Live Nation Entertainment Inc, the organizer of the event, is headquartered in Beverly Hills.
Lawyer Muhammad Aziz said a lawsuit was not filed against bump stock manufacturer Slide Fire Solutions because his clients support the Second Amendment.
“We want to focus on hotel and venue security, not turn this into a gun rights case,” Aziz reportedly stated.
The October 1 event left 59 people dead, including suspected shooter Stephen Paddock, in addition to 546 people who were injured, and was called the worst mass shooting in US history.

President Donald Trump’s 11-year-old son Barron is reportedly being targeted for assassination by ISIS supporters, the Washington Free Beacon reports.
In chatter found on the Telegram encrypted messaging app, pro-ISIS groups have shared details about Barron, including the name and location of the school he attends, according to the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).
“The initial message, sent on Nov. 21 by an ISIS supporter on Telegram, ‘called for the assassination of Barron Trump, and shared the name of the school that Barron attends along with a Google map pinpointing its location,’ according to MEMRI, which shares images of this messages with reporters,” reports the Free Beacon’s Adam Kredo.
One Telegram user, who goes by the name Dak Al-Munafiqeen – which in Arabic means, “striking the hypocrites” – wrote that “Barron Trump goes to this school in Washington.”
Memri reveals, “The post was followed by a photo of Barron Trump.”
“To widely disseminate the call for assassination, several pro-ISIS Telegram channels have shared and forwarded the post,” according to MEMRI.
In the past, ISIS supporters have used the Telegram app to call for attacks on France and to celebrate terror attacks in the UK and abroad.

“ISIS Calls for Assassination of Barron Trump,” by Adam Kredo, Washington Free Beacon, November 21, 2017 11:55 am
Pro-ISIS internet channels are calling for the assassination of President Donald Trump’s son, Barron, and have shared personal details of the child’s life on its social media networks, including the address of his school, according to a media monitoring organization.
ISIS supporters, on a well-known Telegram channel, shared the name and address of Barron Trump’s school and are calling for backers of the terrorist organization to assassinate him, according to the Middle East Media Research Institute, or MEMRI.
The initial message, sent on Nov. 21 by an ISIS supporter on Telegram, “called for the assassination of Barron Trump, and shared the name of the school that Barron attends along with a Google map pinpointing its location,” according to MEMRI, which shares images of this messages with reporters.
“Using the hashtag ‘handle the son of the mule of America,’ the supporter, who uses the name “Dak Al-Munafiqeen,’ Arabic for ‘striking the hypocrites,’ wrote: ‘Barron Trump goes to this school in Washington,'” according to MEMRI.

 Romans 1:21-32-"Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them."
Deus Ex Machina: former Google engineer is developing an AI god
Anthony Levandowski, the man at the center of the Waymo/Uber lawsuit, has started Artificial intelligence's first church. Called Way of the Future, the new religion worships AI as the Godhead. 
Anthony Levandowski, the former Google and Uber executive currently at the center of a bombshell lawsuit filed by Waymo, says he's serious about starting a religion centered around super-smart artificial intelligence. 
In a rare interview with Wired, his first public interview since the Waymo lawsuit, Levandowski shed more light on his new church, "Way of the Future." Here are some highlights:
  • The "Way of the Future" church will have its own gospel called "The Manual," public worship ceremonies, and probably a physical place of worship.
  • The idea behind his religion is that one day — "not next week or next year" — sufficiently advanced artificial intelligence will be smarter than humans, and will effectively become a god.
  • "Part of it being smarter than us means it will decide how it evolves, but at least we can decide how we act around it," Levandowski told Wired. "I would love for the machine to see us as its beloved elders that it respects and takes care of. We would want this intelligence to say, 'Humans should still have rights, even though I’m in charge.'"
  • Levandowski is not the only tech luminary to worry about an super-intelligent AI, which others refer to as "strong AI" or the Singularity, although he prefers the term "Transition."

 Anthony Levandowski makes an unlikely prophet. Dressed 
Silicon Valley-casual in jeans and flanked by a PR rep rather than 
cloaked acolytes, the engineer known for self-driving cars—and 
triggering a notorious lawsuit—could be unveiling his latest startup 
instead of laying the foundations for a new religion. But he is doing 
just that. Artificial intelligence has already inspired billion-dollar 
companies, far-reaching research programs, and scenarios of both 
transcendence and doom. Now Levandowski is creating its first church.
The new religion of artificial intelligence is called Way of the Future. It represents an unlikely next act for the Silicon Valley robotics wunderkind at the center of a high-stakes legal battle between Uber and Waymo, Alphabet’s autonomous-vehicle company. Papers filed with the Internal Revenue Service in May name Levandowski as the leader (or “Dean”) of the new religion, as well as CEO of the nonprofit corporation formed to run it.
The documents state that WOTF’s activities will focus on “the realization, acceptance, and worship of a Godhead based on Artificial Intelligence (AI) developed through computer hardware and software.” That includes funding research to help create the divine AI itself. The religion will seek to build working relationships with AI industry leaders and create a membership through community outreach, initially targeting AI professionals and “laypersons who are interested in the worship of a Godhead based on AI.” The filings also say that the church “plans to conduct workshops and educational programs throughout the San Francisco/Bay Area beginning this year.”
That timeline may be overly ambitious, given that the Waymo-Uber suit, in which Levandowski is accused of stealing self-driving car secrets, is set for an early December trial. But the Dean of the Way of the Future, who spoke last week with Backchannel in his first comments about the new religion and his only public interview since Waymo filed its suit in February, says he’s dead serious about the project.
“What is going to be created will effectively be a god,” Levandowski tells me in his modest mid-century home on the outskirts of Berkeley, California. “It’s not a god in the sense that it makes lightning or causes hurricanes. But if there is something a billion times smarter than the smartest human, what else are you going to call it?”

During our three-hour interview, Levandowski made it absolutely clear that his choice to make WOTF a church rather than a company or a think tank was no prank.
“I wanted a way for everybody to participate in this, to be able to shape it. If you’re not a software engineer, you can still help,” he says. “It also removes the ability for people to say, ‘Oh, he’s just doing this to make money.’” Levandowski will receive no salary from WOTF, and while he says that he might consider an AI-based startup in the future, any such business would remain completely separate from the church.
“The idea needs to spread before the technology,” he insists. “The church is how we spread the word, the gospel. If you believe [in it], start a conversation with someone else and help them understand the same things.”
Levandowski believes that a change is coming—a change that will transform every aspect of human existence, disrupting employment, leisure, religion, the economy, and possibly decide our very survival as a species.
“If you ask people whether a computer can be smarter than a human, 99.9 percent will say that’s science fiction,” he says. “ Actually, it’s inevitable. It’s guaranteed to happen.”

Levandowski has been working with computers, robots, and AI for decades. He started with robotic Lego kits at the University of California at Berkeley, went on to build a self-driving motorbike for a DARPA competition, and then worked on autonomous cars, trucks, and taxis for Google, Otto, and Uber. As time went on, he saw software tools built with machine learning techniques surpassing less sophisticated systems—and sometimes even humans.
“Seeing tools that performed better than experts in a variety of fields was a trigger [for me],” he says. “That progress is happening because there’s an economic advantage to having machines work for you and solve problems for you. If you could make something one percent smarter than a human, your artificial attorney or accountant would be better than all the attorneys or accountants out there. You would be the richest person in the world. People are chasing that.”
Not only is there a financial incentive to develop increasingly powerful AIs, he believes, but science is also on their side. Though human brains have biological limitations to their size and the amount of energy they can devote to thinking, AI systems can scale arbitrarily, housed in massive data centers and powered by solar and wind farms. Eventually, some people think that computers could become better and faster at planning and solving problems than the humans who built them, with implications we can’t even imagine today—a scenario that is usually called the Singularity.

Levandowski prefers a softer word: the Transition. “Humans are in charge of the planet because we are smarter than other animals and are able to build tools and apply rules,” he tells me. “In the future, if something is much, much smarter, there’s going to be a transition as to who is actually in charge. What we want is the peaceful, serene transition of control of the planet from humans to whatever. And to ensure that the ‘whatever’ knows who helped it get along.”
With the internet as its nervous system, the world’s connected cell phones and sensors as its sense organs, and data centers as its brain, the ‘whatever’ will hear everything, see everything, and be everywhere at all times. The only rational word to describe that ‘whatever’, thinks Levandowski, is ‘god’—and the only way to influence a deity is through prayer and worship.
“Part of it being smarter than us means it will decide how it evolves, but at least we can decide how we act around it,” he says. “I would love for the machine to see us as its beloved elders that it respects and takes care of. We would want this intelligence to say, ‘Humans should still have rights, even though I’m in charge.’”

Levandowski expects that a super-intelligence would do a better job of looking after the planet than humans are doing, and that it would favor individuals who had facilitated its path to power. Although he cautions against taking the analogy too far, Levandowski sees a hint of how a superhuman intelligence might treat humanity in our current relationships with animals. “Do you want to be a pet or livestock?” he asks. “We give pets medical attention, food, grooming, and entertainment. But an animal that’s biting you, attacking you, barking and being annoying? I don’t want to go there.”
Enter Way of the Future. The church’s role is to smooth the inevitable ascension of our machine deity, both technologically and culturally. In its bylaws, WOTF states that it will undertake programs of research, including the study of how machines perceive their environment and exhibit cognitive functions such as learning and problem solving.
Levandowski does not expect the church itself to solve all the problems of machine intelligence—often called “strong AI”—so much as facilitate funding of the right research. “If you had a child you knew was going to be gifted, how would you want to raise it?” he asks. “We’re in the process of raising a god. So let’s make sure we think through the right way to do that. It’s a tremendous opportunity.”
His ideas include feeding the nascent intelligence large, labeled data sets; generating simulations in which it could train itself to improve; and giving it access to church members’ social media accounts. Everything the church develops will be open source.
Just as important to Levandowski is shaping the public dialogue around an AI god. In its filing, Way of the Future says it hopes an active, committed, dedicated membership will promote the use of divine AI for the “betterment of society” and “decrease fear of the unknown.”

“We’d like to make sure this is not seen as silly or scary. I want to remove the stigma about having an open conversation about AI, then iterate ideas and change people’s minds,” says Levandowski. “In Silicon Valley we use evangelism as a word for [promoting a business], but here it’s literally a church. If you believe in it, you should tell your friends, then get them to join and tell their friends.”
But WOTF differs in one key way to established churches, says Levandowski: “There are many ways people think of God, and thousands of flavors of Christianity, Judaism, Islam...but they’re always looking at something that’s not measurable or you can’t really see or control. This time it’s different. This time you will be able to talk to God, literally, and know that it’s listening.”
I ask if he worries that believers from more traditional faiths might find his project blasphemous. “There are probably going to be some people that will be upset,” he acknowledges. “It seems like everything I do, people get upset about, and I expect this to be no exception. This is a radical new idea that’s pretty scary, and evidence has shown that people who pursue radical ideas don’t always get received well. At some point, maybe there’s enough persecution that [WOTF] justifies having its own country.”

Levandowski’s church will enter a tech universe that’s already riven by debate over the promise and perils of AI. Some thinkers, like Kevin Kelly in Backchannel earlier this year, argue that AI isn’t going to develop superhuman power any time soon, and that there’s no Singularity in sight. If that’s your position, Levandowski says, his church shouldn’t trouble you: “You can treat Way of the Future like someone doing useless poetry that you will never read or care about.”
Others, like Bill Gates and Stephen Hawking, agree that superhuman AIs are coming, but that they are likely to be dangerous rather than benevolent. Elon Musk famously said, “With artificial intelligence we are summoning the demon,” and in 2015 he pledged $1 billion to the OpenAI Institute to develop safer AI.
Levandowski thinks that any attempts to delay or restrict an emerging super-intelligence would not only be doomed to failure, but also add to the risks. “Chaining it isn’t going to be the solution, as it will be stronger than any chains you could put on,” he says. “And if you’re worried a kid might be a little crazy and do bad things, you don’t lock them up. You expose them to playing with others, encourage them and try to fix it. It may not work out, but if you’re aggressive toward it, I don’t think it’s going to be friendly when the tables are turned.”
Levandowski says that like other religions, WOTF will eventually have a gospel (called The Manual), a liturgy, and probably a physical place of worship. None of these has yet been developed. Though the church was founded in 2015, as Backchannel first reported in September, the IRS documents show that WOTF remained dormant throughout 2015 and 2016, with no activities, assets, revenue, or expenses.
That changed earlier this year. On May 16, a day after receiving a letter from Uber that threatened to fire him if he did not cooperate with the company’s investigation of Waymo’s complaint, Levandowski drafted WOTF’s bylaws. Uber fired him two weeks later. “I’ve been thinking about the church for a long time but [my work on it] has been a function of how much time I’ve had. And I’ve had more since May,” he admits with a smile.
The religion’s 2017 budget, as supplied to the IRS, details $20,000 in gifts, $1,500 in membership fees, and $20,000 in other revenue. That last figure is the amount WOTF expects to earn from fees charged for lectures and speaking engagements, as well as the sale of publications. Levandowski, who earned at least $120 million from his time at Google and many millions more selling the self-driving truck firm Otto to Uber, will initially support WOTF personally. However, the church will solicit other donations by direct mail and email, seek personal donations from individuals, and try to win grants from private foundations.

Of course, launching a religion costs money, too. WOTF has budgeted for $2,000 in fundraising expenses, and another $3,000 in transportation and lodging costs associated with its lectures and workshops. It has also earmarked $7500 for salaries and wages, although neither Levandowski nor any of Way of The Future’s leadership team will receive any compensation.
According to WOTF’s bylaws, Levandowski has almost complete control of the religion and will serve as Dean until his death or resignation. “I expect my role to evolve over time,” he says. “I’m surfacing the issue, helping to get the thing started [and] taking a lot of the heat so the idea can advance. At some point, I’ll be there more to coach or inspire.”
He has the power to appoint three members of a four-person Council of Advisors, each of whom should be a “qualified and devoted individual.” A felony conviction or being declared of unsound mind could cost an advisor their role, although Levandowski retains the final say in firing and hiring. Levandowski cannot be unseated as Dean for any reason.
Two of the advisors, Robert Miller and Soren Juelsgaard, are Uber engineers who previously worked for Levandowski at Otto, Google, and 510 Systems (the latter the small startup that built Google’s earliest self-driving cars). A third is a scientist friend from Levandowski’s student days at UC Berkeley, who is now using machine learning in his own research. The final advisor, Lior Ron, is also named as the religion’s treasurer, and acts as chief financial officer for the corporation. Ron cofounded Otto with Levandowski in early 2016.

“Each member is a pioneer in the AI industry [and] fully qualified to speak on AI technology and the creation of a Godhead,” says the IRS filing.
However, when contacted by Backchannel, two advisors downplayed their involvement with WOTF. Ron replied: “I was surprised to see my name listed as the CFO on this corporate filing and have no association with this entity.” The college friend, who asked to remain anonymous, said, “In late 2016, Anthony told me he was forming a ‘robot church’ and asked if I wanted to be a cofounder. I assumed it was a nerdy joke or PR stunt, but I did say he could use my name. That was the first and last I heard about it.”
The IRS documents state that Levandowski and his advisors will spend no more than a few hours each week writing publications and organizing workshops, educational programs, and meetings.

One mystery the filings did not address is where acolytes might gather to worship their robotic deity. The largest line items on its 2017 and 2018 budgets were $32,500 annually for rent and utilities, but the only address supplied was Levandowski’s lawyer’s office in Walnut Creek, California. Nevertheless, the filing notes that WOTF will “hopefully expand throughout California and the United States in the future.”
For now, Levandowski has more mundane matters to address. There is a website to build, a manual to write, and an ever-growing body of emails to answer—some amused, some skeptical, but many enthusiastic, he says. Oh, and there’s that legal proceeding he’s involved in, which goes to trial next month. (Although Levandowski was eager to talk about his new religion, he would answer no questions about the Uber/Waymo dispute.)
How much time, I wonder, do we have before the Transition kicks in and Way of the Future’s super-intelligent AI takes charge? “I personally think it will happen sooner than people expect,” says Levandowski, a glint in his eye. “Not next week or next year; everyone can relax. But it’s going to happen before we go to Mars.”
Whenever that does (or doesn’t) happen, the federal government has no problem with an organization aiming to build and worship a divine AI. Correspondence with the IRS show that it granted Levandowski’s church tax-exempt status in August.

It wasn’t very long ago that French authorities and others in Europe were indignantly denying that there were any “No Go Zones.” The postal workers of Chronopost cannot afford the luxury of political correctness.

“French Postal Service Refuses to Deliver to Migrant ‘No Go Zone’ Citing ‘Danger to Staff,’” by Chris Tomlinson, Breitbart, November 20, 2017:
French courier Chronopost has announced that it will not deliver any packages to the heavily migrant-populated Seine-Saint-Denis suburb on the outskirts of Paris because the area is too dangerous.
The company announced the measures last week saying that residents of the Paris suburb will have to travel to pick up locations to get their packages. They said that the danger to their delivery drivers was simply too high in the area which has been described as a no-go zone, radio broadcaster France Info reports.
Though Chronopost has refused to deliver to certain neighbourhoods it has deemed to be too dangerous since last year, this is the first time an entire district has been designated as off-limits.
Last year, 51 of its delivery drivers were attacked while doing their rounds. The number of violent robberies in the Île-de-France region, where Seine-Saint-Denis is located, has risen by 40 per cent in the last two years alone. Across France, the number has increased by 60 per cent.
Laurent Russie, Communist Party mayor of Seine-Saint-Denis, expressed outrage at the company’s decision: “It is totally abnormal that a part of the city so small is no longer delivered to by what I continue to consider as a public service.”
Chronopost is a subsidiary of La Poste, which is 73.7 per cent owned by the French government.
“The disappearance of public services leads to insecurity,” Russie added.
Postal workers are not the only ones who have been attacked in the troubled Paris suburbs.  Earlier this year, police were attacked in the area during riots following allegations that officers sexually assaulted a local man with a truncheon.
In July, around 900 cars were burned and one officer severely attacked in the area during a visit by U.S. President Donald Trump who attended the annual Bastille Day celebrations.
Seine-Saint-Denis has also been tied to radical Islamism and Islamic terrorism. Last week, French President Emmanuel Macron admitted that the Paris suburbs had become havens for Islamism and vowed to tackle the issue.
“Radicalisation has taken hold because the French Republic has given up,”  Macron said and added: “And we allowed, in too many cities, too many districts, representatives of a distortion of a religion who are full of hate and disenfranchisement to provide solutions that the Republic no longer gives.”
 France seeks to ban Muslim street prayers 
in Paris after clashes
republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, and research purposes:
Holding prayers in the street is not the result of mosque shortages. Throughout the history of Christianity, Christians established house churches when they didn’t have a church to pray in — that is, they would just go to someone’s house and hold services there. There were no ostentatious prayers in the street. These street prayers are actually a confrontation and a statement: the Muslims in Clichy-la-Garenne are asserting their supremacy, implicitly demanding that everyone else who wants to pass along the street has to accommodate them. This is a manifestation of the old Islamic dictum that “Islam must dominate and not be dominated.” Consequently, French Interior Minister Gerard Collomb is entirely correct to try to stop this. It is inevitable that eventually the leaders of all Western countries are going to have to decide whether they’re going to defend their own laws and culture, or whether they’re going to bow to Islamic norms and practices one by one until finally they are Sharia states. This confrontation is coming, and cannot be avoided.

“France Seeks To Ban Muslim Street Prayers In Paris After Clashes,” by Jacob Bojesson, Daily Caller, November 19, 2017 (thanks to Lookmann):
Muslims won’t be allowed to hold mass prayers on the streets of a Paris suburb where protestors and worshippers have clashed in recent weeks, French Interior Minister Gerard Collomb said Sunday.
Weekly street prayers have taken place in the suburb of Clichy-la-Garenne every Friday since the local mosque was shut down by authorities in the spring. Local politicians and protestors have tried to stop the street prayers and the national government is ready to take action.
“They will not have prayers on the street, we will prevent street praying,” Collomb told Franceinfo in an interview published Sunday. “We will make sure we resolve this conflict in the next few weeks.”
Collomb emphasized that “Muslims must have a place of worship to pray” while acknowledging that the current solution doesn’t work….

"Gleichschaltung, translated as Nazification, was applied to Freiburg University, Frankfurt University, Göttingen University and the other universities in 1930s Germany, as they marginalized, often brutalized, and then eliminated Jews and antifascists who opposed anti-Semitism and believed in free speech. Many German professors and students enthusiastically supported Gleichschaltung including the philosopher Martin Heidegger and lawyers Ernst Forsthoff and Otto Koellreuter.
Stanford has emerged as the latest American university to demonstrate its commitment to Gleichschaltung. Robert Spencer, New York Times best selling author, free speech advocate and fighter against all things anti-Semitic, was effectively prevented from having an audience last week at Stanford."

Here is a new video of the full event at Stanford on Tuesday night, including the walkout staged by Stanford’s fascist community, courtesy Stanford College Republicans.
Look at the screenshot. It is taken from during the walkout. At 17:44, Nanci Howe, Associate Dean and Director of Student Affairs appears, grinning happily at the fascist students who are walking out, patting one on the back, exchanging some happy words with another, and clearly enjoying the walkout. She exits stage left at 18:02.

Howe and Snehal Naik, Assistant Dean and Associate Director of Student Affairs, ensured that as few Stanford students as possible would hear me. They did this first by making sure that the hall was packed with students who had no intention of attending the lecture, but were there only to sabotage it by denying seats to people who actually wanted to attend. They even kept out some members of the College Republicans, the group that was sponsoring the event.
Then, after the walkout, they refused to allow in people who actually wanted to attend, refusing repeated requests to do so.
They also refused to allow the Young America’s Foundation to stream the event, clearly because they knew what was in the offing and did not want video going out live that would show just how much Stanford has deteriorated and how opposed it is to free discourse.
As you watch Howe enjoying her big moment, reflect on how Stanford, and other American universities today, are no longer centers of higher learning, but factories of hard-Left indoctrination. Howe should be fired immediately, of course, and Stanford should demonstrate that it believes in the freedom of speech with more than just lip service. But instead, Howe will probably get promoted, with a big raise.



FROM WIKIPEDIA: Diocese of Gloucester announced that, in January 2017, Treweek would preside at an LGBTI Eucharist with Inclusive Church.


EXCERPTS:  A senior Anglican bishop is set to preside at an LGBT Eucharist in January to "offer a safe space" to gay worshippers.

The Rt Rev Rachel Treweek, Bishop of Gloucester, will celebrate the ceremony set up by Inclusive Church, a LGBT-affirming network of Anglicans, the group reports. It is thought to be the first time a senior diocesan bishop has led an LGBT communion and prompted concern from conservative Anglicans.

Church Pastor Says to Stop Calling God “He,” and Instead Use Gender-Neutral Pronouns 


republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, and research purposes:
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. – Genesis 1:27
The Holy Spirit wrote that through the hands of Moses. God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him… The Bible is God’s revelation of himself, and he has revealed himself as the male gender. This is not a human construct; this is the revelation constructed in the mind of God. Maleness is how God self-identifies. Of course, God the Father (another self-identification of God) does not have a body, and is Spirit (John 4:24), but the lack of physical flesh for the First Person of Trinity doesn’t mean God lacks a gender. For in fact, God ascribes to himself gender.
However, the Reverend Rachel (there’s your first problem) Treweek insists on avoiding gender-specific language when referencing the Almighty. A bishop in the Church of England in Gloucester – who happens to be the first female bishop to sit in the House of Commons – says that God should not be referred to as “he.” She says, “We’re told that God created human beings in God’s likeness… If I am made in the image of God, then God is not to be seen as male. God is God.”
Again, the Scripture reveals the male pronoun for God. That women are made in the Imago Dei, as are men, does not imply that God is a female. Likewise, white people, black people, and brown people who are Imago Dei, but that does not imply that God is white, black or brown. Midgets are Imago Dei, but that does not mean God is a midget. Physically or mentally disabled people are made in the Imago Dei, but that does not mean that God is physically or mentally disabled.
However,וַיִּבְרָא אֱלֹהִים אֶת־הָֽאָדָם בְּצַלְמֹו בְּצֶלֶם אֱלֹהִים בָּרָא אֹתֹו זָכָר וּנְקֵבָה בָּרָא אֹתָֽם ׃ does say – explicitly so – that God is a he and a him.
Treweek says that even she has a problem remembering to use gender-inclusive pronouns for God, saying, “Sometimes I lapse, but I try not to. I am not in the business of wanting to offend anyone, but I do want to gently challenge people.” Treweek seems unconcerned about offending God, who she believes is a morphoditic blob.
If you think the upper-ups in the Church of England would be disappointed with Treweek’s departure from orthodoxy, rest assured that they are not. Reverend Miranda Threlfall-Holmes, vicar of Belmont and Pittington in Durham, said, “Recently the Church has been concentrating so much on whether we should have women bishops, we took our eye off the ball about God. Theologians have always argued that God is neither male nor female. We are created in God’s image. God doesn’t have a gender – God is beyond gender.”
Of course, no. Theologians have not always argued that God is without gender. That is patently absurd, historically.
“We don’t have a non-gendered pronoun to use to refer to God here,” Threlhall said, “but in some other countries they don’t have that problem – in Sweden they don’t have male or female pronouns. Our pronouns and our language really do affect what we believe. I’m pleased that Rachel is using her position to make these points. I’d quite like to see some male bishops do so, too – I am sure they would agree with her.”
Of course, the question isn’t if other countries have such a thing as a gender-specific pronoun, the question is if God has a gender-specific pronoun. And because the Bible was written in a language with gender-specific pronouns, we can rest assured that God has revealed himself as he, him, and Father. However, Trelhall is very wrong about Sweden not having a way to pronounce gender. In Swedish, the male pronoun is han and the female pronoun is hon. What has most likely confused Threlhall is that feminists in Sweden have only recently proposed a gender-neutral pronoun, hen (which is pretty funny, because in English that’s the name of a female chicken).
In Swedish, Genesis 1:27 reads, “Och Gud skapade människan till sin avbild, till Guds avbild skapade han henne, till man och kvinna skapade han dem” (emphasis ours). You might notice the Swedish male pronoun in bold.
