Is your god male or female?

Many years ago I represented a guy with schizophrenia and dementia. He not only did what the voice(s) told him to do, often he couldn't remember what he did.  I asked him about the trees, and he said, "god told me to cut them down, she said they were full of evil!"  The voice that guided his behaviour and informed him of good and evil was female.  

Is yours male or female, or both?

  2. Don’t have one, but if I did I would want it to be a female voice, I think. And sounding like Judy Dench. Or my friend Tere.

  4. Well I was raised Catholic so I was trained that God was a man with a beard, penis and testicles like all men, so obviously he had a great booming male voice. The only time I hear a female voice, will go something like, "stop eating cookies before you have supper". That voice in my head sounds a lot more like mom than some deity!

  5. I prefer to characterize the divine using female imagery. The patriarchal tradition has lasted long enough.

  6. My god is male. My conscience, however is female as it uses my voice. Of course, my voice has been mistaken as male on several occasions, but that's neither here nor there.

  7. While I don't have a god, at times Mother Nature speaks to me and of course she has a female voice.
