Missionaries to the Faithful Ones would have some difficulty. They (at
least the Females, and *most* of the Males) see the Creator as *female*
(some Males claim that the Creator is androgynous), to claim that the
Creator is male would confuse them; the term "Heavenly Father" couldn't
even be translated, since they have no word for father, except for the
technical "nlannani'", literally "with-mother" (which has a "scientific"
sound, as if we were to say "male parental unit"), as their species
forms no long-term male-female pairs, having a specific mating season.
