← Let's take the gender out of "God"

I generally use two distinctions, the great primate in the sky since this was suppose to be an entity who created us in "his" image but since we are most certainly primates it just seems applicable to attach the actual nature of the two being considered and for some reason people always look up when they consider or address this supposed entity. I also like he/she/whatever because it does not lavish accolades on the supposed entity. I like Layla's idea too for the ability to discuss the issue without killing the conversation by offending the others presumptive imagining of the monkey, sorry, god.
