small 'splosion...

That sound you heard was my temper exploding:

"Therefore the practice of using the same term to refer (1) to male human beings and (2) to the human race generally is a practice that originated with God himself, and we should not find it objectionable or insensitive."
~Wayne Grudem, Systematic Theology

Aside from misapplying the Hebrew and ignoring half the human race... no problem. And what's with the royal "we"???

Words fail me.
And yeah. You can call me a feminist. Whatevs.

eerrrmmm....I do not understand what you are talking about. So I will just say I am so very sorry that it was a bad day.

Good grief, there are people who actually think this way? And editors who let it slip by? And publishers who print it? And professors who assign it without question? Sadness.

what's his source on that? Cause I don't know of one.

You know, I wondered at the source too... words fail me (at least, printable words)
