Selectively PC

Has anyone else noted that the calls for inclusive language always seem to be in favour of changing from the masculine to neuter?

I never hear protests about the Church being referred to as "she"! I've also been reading The Sermons of St. Alphonsus Liguori - if the PC brigade got their paws on it, they'd have a field day, because of all the male-oriented language... but I bet the references to the soul as "she" would be left intact!!

Actually, I like the way the soul is addressed as feminine - it emphasises Christ's role as bridegroom.
