ELCA Seminary Prof Claims Ancient Fertility Idol is the Holy Spirit

You can't make this stuff up.

The prof ostensibly addresses the prophet Elijah and asks:
“When you killed the four hundred fifty prophets of Baal but not the four hundred prophets of Asherah was it because you really didn’t mind a little goddess worship on the side?  Are we feminists right in saying that Asherah was just the Canaanite articulation of the Holy Spirit and not really another God?”
Huh? A false deity otherwise identified as such in Scripture is really the Third Person of the Trinity? I don't think so.

But, I wonder, did any bishop or seminary president ask to speak with the prof about this? Or is false teaching simply accepted as part of being a big post-modern church?
