God is not male or female, says Archbishop of Canterbury
The Archbishop of Canterbury has weighed in on the debate over God's gender by saying He is neither male nor female.
The Most Reverend Justin Welby said descriptions of God were 'to some degree metaphorical' and that His characterisation as 'Father' could not be understood in exactly the same way as an earthly father.
The Archbishop made the comments during a conversation on encountering God at St-Martins-in-the-Fields Church in London last week.
Speaking to the church's vicar, the Rev Dr Sam Wells, the Archbishop said: 'It is extraordinarily important as Christians that we remember that the definitive revelation of who God is was not in words, but in the word of God who we call Jesus Christ. We can't pin God down.'...
"The debate in the Church of England over the gender of God was reignited recently when its first female diocesan bishop, the Rt Rev Rachel Treweek, said ministers should avoid referring to God in exclusively male terms and be 'mindful of our language'."
'I don't want young girls or young boys to hear us constantly refer to God as he,' she said."

A lot of nonsense is spoken by the Archbishops of Canterbury, and this is just one more example
