Catholic schoolgirls are being taught that God is gender-neutral and banned from using the words 'Lord', 'Father' and 'Son' in prayers.
A number of elite Catholic schools in Brisbane are making moves to teach their students to use inclusive language when referring to God.
Top schools including All Hallows, Stuartholme, Loreto College and Stuartholme School are leading a push towards a feminist interpretation of the Christian Bible.
Students at Stuartholme School in Brisbane's inner-city, which charges upwards of $40,000 a year, are taught to use the word 'Godself' instead of 'himself'.
'As we believe God is neither male or female, Stuartholme tries to use gender-neutral terms in prayers … so that our community deepens their understanding of who God is for them, how God reveals Godself through creation, our relationships with others and the person of Jesus,' a spokeswoman told The Sunday Mail.
Loreto College in Coorparoo has taken the word 'Lord' from their prayers as it is a 'male term'.
The school's principal Kim Wickham said prayers written for use within the college didn't assign God a gender.
Ms Wickham said the school had a commitment to inclusive language, but admitted there were instances where gendered language is appropriate.
St Rita's College Clayfield tries to use gender-neutral terms but for traditional prayers still uses gendered language.
The assistant principal Richard Rogusz said context is important and helps decide what language is appropriate.'
