Something God never does

Amanda Marcotte has read one too many news stories that sound like The Handmaid's Tale:

"Between the Quiverfulls and the polygamous Mormons, it’s hard not to develop just a whiff of a hint that these oh-so-holy religious sects are about one thing and one thing only: phallic worship. I find it a little bit telling that God never, ever comes into people’s dreams to tell them that women are men’s equals or anything like that."

Never? Hardly ever? Counterexamples, anyone?  (I'm not sure Genesis 21:11-13 counts.)
