Abby Johnson is a former Planned Parenthood worker that turned into an anti-abortion activist. If you know anything about her, you’d know that she’s famous for making bizarre statements on public platforms. Well, she did it again. In a recent interaction with Catholics for Choice communications director Charlotte Clymer, she got schooled with a page of her own book!
It all started when Johnson took it at people who refer to God with female pronouns, and she labeled them as ‘evil’ for doing so. This is what she tweeted:
“If a priest or pastor refers to God as “Herself” or “She,” do yourself a favor and flee from that evil.”
If a priest or pastor refers to God as “Herself” or “She,” do yourself a favor and flee from that evil. (And make sure you pray for that person who is clearly lost.)

Although there were some people who sided with her, Clymer, who is a trans woman, challenged the claim and asked Johnson one simple question:
“Abby, honest question: how do you know God is only male?”
Abby, honest question: how do you know God is only male?

Abby responded with: “Father, Son, Holy Spirit.” “Our Father…”.
Clymer then responded with: “So, let me get this right: you’re saying that because God presents and identifies as male, we should respect his decision and use the appropriate pronouns without regard to any supposed scientific reasoning?”

Clymer wrote that Johnson has a difficulty understanding gender, to which Johnson responded that “God IS science”. Oh well, it’s safe to say that Twitter enjoyed the exchange.
Hard disagree. Science is an analytical process. It may exist *of* God if you so wish, but God demands supernatural faith that is fundamentally at odds with science.

Yes, I see lots of doctors turn to the Bible when they learn how to perform surgeries. FFS, Abby.

From what I’ve seen, people are just mocking her. Is she saying she’s god?
