A student at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles claims that a professor scored points on a tTology test after the student described God using masculine pronouns.

According to Faith Wire, a report states that teacher Cecilia Gonzalez-Andrieu was not satisfied with the student’s decision. of using “male-gender language for God over and over again”.

“Your comment that I referred to God as a man, I shouldn’t have gotten any points discounted because of that. SEVERAL times throughout Bible, God is referred to as a “he”. I feel the target of your comment, as I was raised in the church with the belief that God and a man,” the student wrote in an email to the teacher.

The teacher responded by instructing him to resubmit his work and add a footnote stating her reasons as a scholar for choosing to preserve male language for God. According to her, this was the request from the beginning.

“I’m shocked at this blatant heresy coming out of the theology department. This was a personal attack on the freedom of religion of one of my members, in a ‘Catholic’ school no less. That kind of guy. Compelled speech cannot be tolerated by the LMU,” said Will Donahue, president of Loyola Marymount University College.
