So, in my Sacred Literature class the professor has instructed us that anytime we use the word "god" in class we have to write it like this: G(g)od(s). Whe says we must do this so we "Don't leave anyone out."
My problems with this are as follows:
1. are we really so sensitive that the very mention of somethine we don't believe in insults or offends us?
2. It's a Sacred Literature class! We are going to have to write about most every religion out there. Would we not mearly dilute and homogonise the different religions out there if we refuse to refer to their gods the way thay do?
3. It is inane and assinine! How do you pronounce it? It's not even a word anymore. If you try to make a word mean everything it loses all meaning.
Anywho. just thought I'd rant and share with my MiceChat Brother/Sisters.
