"Father" and "Son" Wrong?

The Presbyterian Church (USA) has been big-hearted this time and said that its congregations will still refer to God and Jesus as "Father" and "Son" but it's OK if you refer to them in other ways "experimentally". "Mother" and "Daughter" soon to be heard in Presbyterian pulpits as descriptions of the Godhead?

News report here

My old church is Ann St. Presbyterian Church here in Brisbane, for which I still have great affection. It was originally a "Wee Free" church (The Free Church of Scotland) and they are still pretty fundamentalist so I think the Biblical way of referring to God and Jesus will remain all that is heard from that particular pulpit.

Christian Music not Allowed on Private Property

Another lot of modern-day Fascists who have not read the First Amendment:

"The New York Division of Human Rights threatened Len and Terry Bernardo, owners of the Skate Time 209 rink in Accord, with an investigation because the rink plays Christian music during certain hours. The agency also threatened to charge a local newspaper which advertised the event for "aiding and abetting" unlawful discrimination.

"This is crazy," said TVC Chairman Rev. Louis P. Sheldon. "These people are exercising basic Constitutional rights on private property to the exclusion of no one and the state government is treating them like dangerous criminals."
