MessageHi Karey:

You might be interested in Harold Bloom's contention that the Hebrew pronouns which refer to God in the original Old Testament are genderless.  Since I don't read Hebrew, I can't check this, but I do know that Milton also agrees with you.  Not bad company to be in.  And we may as well throw in Plato's SYMPOSIUM as another argument that precedes yours.

  I think our spirits/souls ultimately transcend gender -- God has no genitals (although we traditionally and misleadingly refer to "Him" as a "He," gender is by definition a physical trait and God is not physical - only Jesus).
