Is referring to God as a parent degrading?

No offense to your beliefs, but as an almighty being above all mankind the maker and creator of all that is good, is the role of a father not a degradation of God’s entity and existence? Is it not contradictory in some way that we see Him as our creator and yet some call him a father and believe Jesus is his son? Where is the logic in such a disparaging title? How is he able to conceive? In my religion Islam, we believe Mary was a virgin, and Jesus was conceived by a miracle from God, just like Noah’s Arc just like all other miracles by God. So how is it that one would call Him Jesus’ father? Does that make Mary his wife? That seems absurd to me, is it simply a title given out of respect?
Please clarify further for I’d like to understand where the logic is behind this, without any “we have to be blindly following faith” because that answer simply does not suffice
Thank you

I don’t know why and you have not explained why it would.

It’s the same in Christianity.  God miraculously provided the fertilized egg in Mary’s womb.
