God's Wife Edited Out of the Bible -- Almost : Discovery News
Edgy stuff for the nearly-mainstream media: coverage of a scholar in Britain who is popularizing the information about Asherah (Astarte/Ishtar/"Sacred Tree") and her role in a sacred pair along with Yahweh. You always knew He was up to something.
People will say, "It's bad enough that real women are edited out of history, but female deities, too?" Oh, those patriarchal monotheists and their red pencils!
Wonder if we'll see this scholar's documentary on Discovery Channel anytime soon.
