This morning McGod will arrive to perform her teaching duties at the Scottish Episcopal Church in a neat pleated skirt, high heeled shoes, and an immaculate white lace blouse. It will come as a shock to many of her âchildrenâ who had been used to referring to him/her as âFather, Son and Holy Ghostâ.
Ms McGoddess, as she wishes to be known in future, has asked for privacy and understanding whilst she undergoes the difficult gender transition.
The Rev Darren McFarland who has been supporting Ms McGoddess throughout this traumatic time, admitted âThe changing of Godâs language is a little trickyâ but henceforth she may be formally referred to as âCreator, Redeemer and Sanctifierâ.
The main book in the childrenâs curriculum, The 1982 Liturgy has been altered, and words such as âLord, he, his, himâ, and âmankindâ reworded to reflect her new gender alignment.
Whilst many, including my good self, had suspected for some time that McGod, and his/her cousin God, were in fact female, we had respected their privacy and not drawn attention to the telltale clues; however, the minutes of the Faith and Order Board of General Synod and the College of Bishops reveal that Ms McGoddess was âoutedâ during a heated exchange when some female priests asked why she was still referred to as a man.
The finger of McGoddess wishes it to be known she will be having a manicure at 6pm and will not be able to preside over Vespers.
I wish her well in her new life, and trust she retains the sense of humour I have always admired her for.
– And the say the silly season is over today â obviously not!
