    Reading the article it talks about the bible they are going to use:

    --
    The Inclusive Bible was published in 2004 and written by a group called Priests for Equality, which, according to the Amazon description, is a project of the Quixote Center in Brentwood, Maryland, and is a "grass-roots organization committed to creating a culture where sexism and exclusion are left behind and equality and full participation are the order of the day."

    In Genesis 17, the passage of scripture where God makes the Covenant of Circumcision with Abram, the Hebrew "El Shaddai" is traditionally translated as "God Almighty;" the Inclusive Bible renders it "the breasted one."

    --
    So either they are actually trying to make God into a woman, or a sumo wrestler.

    Quoting the Bible is not the same as quoting God. To make that mistake is book worship, a type of forbidden idolatry.

    “You can safely assume you've created God in your own image when it turns out that God hates all the same people you do.” ― Anne Lamott

    Christianity 201?
    Micah 6:8 He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?
