God's beyond our names

To the Catholic Sentinel:
Theresa Bower shares her inspiration: “God is not a liberal!”
I agree with Theresa, but neither is God a “conservative.”
Nor is He any other human label (“male,” “Catholic”....) we assign Creator.
God is greater than human attributes theologians affix to Deity, but then, so are humans:
Liberal, conservative, gender, race, religious affiliation, athleticism, club memberships — these earthly distinctions that seem important are lost over time; are all erased in final breaths.
We should not let human “labels” define or divide us; these are only a scaffolding of inner reality.
