Up-down theologies of domination have not served the world well. Even the more liberal and entirely post-modern theologies of “stewardship” are still stuck in that up-down schema that inordinately privileges the human being in an anthropocentric hierarchy. All this points to the need for a serious rethinking of the one, cosmic, male creator god who rules all things. Talk of creation and the single creator it implies is not possible for those of us who take seriously the collateral-egalitarian balance and community-ist living.
