Oxford scholar Francesca Stavrakopoulou claims in a new BBC documentary that God had a wife named Asherah, but most references to her have been edited out of the Bible. Stavrakopoulou says:
The Scottish Episcopal Church's new order of service removes all masculine references to God, including "he," "him," and "Lord." "God's above and beyond human gender," says one reverend. "We are not saying God is not masculine. God is also feminine."
