The Catholic Bishops' Conference of the Philippines website reported that the Catholic officials nixed the calls of devotees for the institution of a liturgical feast honoring "God the Father." According to CBCP's Fr. Anscar Chupungco, they do not "see the sense of instituting a day in the year to honor God the Father when the whole year belongs to him.”
Those pushing for such a feast don't seem to understand that the Catholic (even all mainstream Christian traditions) religion is already patriarchal and biased for a male concept of God.
The Catholic Church is well aware of this, which is why it tries to balance this by instituting Marian devotions. Most non-Catholics think Marian devotion is paganism. But what do they think of religions conceiving of God as only male in form, etc.?
How could God be so biased towards the male? If humanity is indeed 'made in the image and likeness of God,' then the Creator must be FEMALE because female is the default sex--in the human species, at least.
I'm not defending the Catholic Church--just recognizing that they at least try to balance off the slant towards patriarchy.
