Someone posted today, quite upset because someone else referred to the Abrahamic god as a "she." This poster made it quite clear that her god is a male. So, several of us wondered about that. Why is it so important to some Christians to believe their god is a male, as opposed to a female or an "it" (which would actually be far more likely, in my opinion - why would any god need genitalia?). The ancient gods created things via all kinds of bodily fluid, including urine, vomit and semen - but isn't the Abrahamic god above all that pagan stuff these days? I am really trying to understand why some Christians are so fixated on their god having a penis. If you suggest it doesn't have one (i.e. is female or gender-neutral), they get upset - but if you mention the word "penis" they also get upset. But that's the main thing that physically differentiates males from females, so why can't it be mentioned?
I can't imagine a corporeal god in the first place. Imagine a god with a digestive system, spending time on its other throne doing more than just ruling, when it ate something bad (and again, why would a god need to eat?). Would a god have a duodenum or appendix and, if so, would they actually serve a purpose for it? The Goddess-focus religions had rituals that made it clear why their gods had to be female, but the Abrahamic religions don't do anything of the kind.
I'd love to hear from people as to why they think the Christian god needs to have genitals, a digestive system, or anything like that. And why they're so insistent that it's a male.
