Ms Flint has simply discovered the consequence of Gordon Brown’s failure to find femininity in God. Gordon Brown’s God is a father, husband, king, clan leader and warrior. Caroline Flint’s is a pregnant woman, mother, midwife, mistress.
Now, unlike Cramner, your humble Devil is not a theist—indeed, I am an atheist. However, I do take an interest in just about everything (other than sport, about which I couldn't really give a shit. Commercial sport is just a distraction used to keep the populace from tearing its government limb from limb).
I wouldn't claim to be an expert on religious matters: however, it seems to me that the over-weening dominance of the patriarchy comes through particularly in the monotheistic religions, including Christianity. God has most often been seen as male and Jesus, assuming his existence, was male—as were all of the original disciples.
One might argue that, in a male-dominated society, it could be no any other way. However, in the Celtic religions (for there were many, although all shared certain features), this is not the case.
As a general rule, the great gods also had a feminine equivalent—sometimes the gods even had a female and male aspect within the same entity. In any case, female deities were, in many cases, as powerful as the male, even if they represented different things: the male aspects were usually concerned with warriors and manufacturing, e.g. the Trí Dé Dána of the Tuatha de Danann (although the Morrigan is notable for being a female aspect of battle and death), whilst goddesses were generally more concerned with growth and fertility (although the male Cernunnos was also concerned with these things).
And both technical progress and traditional growth were seen as of equivalent importance: they were two aspects of human life. The deities themselves were essentially more balanced, reflecting the perceived priorities essential to life.
Further, of course, the Celtic religions allowed for the fact that gods can be deposed and, indeed, killed. In fact, their gods could be removed by other gods, or even specially favoured humans and semi-humans. The Celtic gods were responsive to their worshippers, and to the world in which they lived. They were fallible because they were closer to the people who worshipped them—in nature if not always in form. And their gods evolved, whether within themselves or into other sets of gods: there was constant flux, as there is in life.
Contrast that with the Christian religion, in which one god is the all-knowing, all-seeing creator of everything: this one god can never be deposed, or replaced. This god is never—for all the Christ's urgings—the servant of his people, or even of this world.
Further, the god has always been a male aspect, for all that feminists have tried to claim a female or asexual entity. Unlike the Dagda, the Christian god did not have daughters who were as valuable as his sons; his has been an entirely male-dominated history.
Anyway, it's just a thought...
