The Pope rules out feminist theology - Telegraph

The Pope rules out feminist theology - Telegraph: "The Vatican has cracked down on feminist interpretations of the liturgy, ruling that God must always be recognised as Our Father.

In a move designed to counter the spread of gender-neutral phrases, the Holy See said that anyone baptised using alternative terms, such as 'Creator', 'Redeemer' and 'Sanctifier' would have to be re-baptised using the traditional ceremony.

The Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith said yesterday: 'These variations arise from so-called feminist theology and are an attempt to avoid using the words Father and Son, which are held to be chauvinistic.'"
