Rape scene in the Gospel of Luke

Recommended Posts

Dr. Eric Sprankle, a professor of clinical psychology, wrote that "the virgin birth story is about an all-knowing, all-powerful deity impregnating a human teen. There is no definition of consent that would include that scenario. Happy Holidays."

My copy of the Bible (King James Version) has the Angel Gabriel telling Mary she “shall” conceive; there are quite a few “shall”s, so it hasn’t happened yet. She finally replies with the bit about being the handmaiden of the Lord.  Sounds like what Rand might have called an engraved invitation, no?  Though with the unequal power relationship between the parties, Almighty God compared to helpless teenage girl…I suppose it would have to qualify as statutory rape at least.  Indeed, the Holy Spirit ought to be on the sexual predator's registry, for life.

This goes under the heading of the War on Christmas that Fox News always finds a way of rehashing every December.

The virgin Miriam (that is Mary in hebrew)   did say   "Oh God!  Don't stop now!"

Well, that's the last straw. I'm switching religions.

More from the front lines of the War on Christmas, this time the belligerent is Amazon:

A mother sent her five-year-old to his school nativity with a 'shepherd' costume she bought online - before realising it came with a blow up sheep sex doll.

Helen Cox, of Alloa, Clackmannanshire, bought her son Alfie the £16.99 fancy dress costume on Amazon for his play and he was delighted it came with a blow up sheep.

But she was puzzled when a teacher told him to take the sheep home - until she blew it up and found it had a huge hole in its bottom - as well as red lips and eyelashes.

As a pantheist I say bring on those teenage virgins!

Biologically they're set to go!

36 26 36 indicates ability to conceive. That's why those numbers look so good to men.

Somewhat on same note, if Solomon had over 1000 concubines, why did the Bible report that he "sleeps with his fathers"?

Maybe in Hebrew "sleeps with" isn't a synonym for "fornicates with", as in English. 

Are there any etymologists around to weigh in?

Yeah, as in "the big sleep," "eternal rest," etc.

"Then David rested/slept/died with his fathers and was buried in the City of David."

Context, bitches, context.
