WHY God is so happy to be Queer

 

One of the advantages of thinking Queerly about God, is to know more about God than we, or anyone else. were ever taught. We know there are more stories to tell about God because we know about all of our stories that weren't told for thousands of years. By keeping us off the page, straight-religious authorities have kept lots of God off the page, too.

 

As Queer folk we know that every statement about God has a possible alternative meaning. Think about it. That's not only for our own good as LGBTQ folks, that's something good for the whole world! Everyone on the planet can use another angle, another way of looking at God, and God, when you think about it, must be thrilled to know that we aren't limiting God to inflexible two-dimensionality. God gets to be creative, playful, inventive, instinctive. Queer. Think of the next breeze that blows as God heaving a Divine sigh of relief at being allowed to stretch out and be infinitely fabulous.

So now you got me wanting to change the opening of a few prayers from "Almighty and everlasting God" to "Fabulous and ever-playful God"...

Thank you for calling my attention to this. Yes, it's a refreshing perspective. You theological troublemaker, you! ;-)
