    When I was a little boy growing up in communist Poland I called God "Bozia", a female term.. as did many other kids IIRC. Here's a short explanation I found on another forum

    My personal theory is that it's female due to the popularity in Poland of imagery of the "Black Madonna" holding Jesus. Kids kept seeing this and started assuming that god is female. Mind you this is only a guess.

    In church though god was only ever referred as male - he / father / son / lord / etc.

    Probably this heresy was part of the reason why the pope could not protect Poland from the first partition. :devil:

    Well, also the expulsion of the jesuits from western Europe. Or that may have been concurrent with the second partition...
