The Church of England is acting on the most important issues of our day, including pernicious biblical translations that just hurt people’s feelings. Today’s example? No longer are Anglicans to refer to the “Three Wise Men.” Instead they are to use the gender-neutral term “magi”.
“A church spokesman says although it is very unlikely that the Persian court officials who visited the baby Jesus were women, the possibility cannot be ruled out.”
Don’t bother us with facts or historicity. Only feelings and contemporary social engineering count.
