Religious word prediction

I use Proloquo2go as the communication app on my Ipad. It’s a very good app – one of the best communication aid apps I’ve tried. Yet I’ve noticed something odd in it’s word prediction. It seems to be religious in the choice of words it suggests. For example, whenever I type ‘My’, it   suggests  something like ‘Father’ or ‘God’. I first noticed it a while ago, and thought it would change as the app adapted to my preferences, but it hasn’t.  I keep noticing it, and, as an atheist, it’s getting on my nerves. It feels like it’s trying to force me to say certain things. Surely things like speech apps should be neutral when it  comes to things like religion.
