This article has made me realise that some churches are quite happy to be sublime!

  1. whilst the rest of us are busy being ridiculous.

    Quite liked the argument advanced here: http://theologicalscribbles.blogspot.com/2009/12/advent-thought-7-take-christ-out-of.html

    food for thought?

  2. That link is awesome!!

  3. http://uk.news.yahoo.com/18/20091217/tod-poster-of-naked-virgin-mary-sparks-u-8dcf68a.html

    ‘remains a virgin?!’ peeeerlease she had other kids. The advert to me still suggests that Jesus was son of God not Joseph. hence the ‘tough act to follow’ bit

  4. Do’h! I wish theologians would enter into the debate!

    Pop quiz.

    “Brother of Jesus………..”

  5. James and Joses

  6. AS per ABC’s article http://abcnews.go.com/International/wireStory?id=9358968

    “Church vicar Archdeacon Glynn Cardy said the billboard was intended to challenge stereotypes about the way Jesus was conceived and get people talking about the Christmas story.

    “This billboard is trying to lampoon and ridicule the very literal idea that God is a male and somehow this male God impregnated Mary,” said Cardy, who described his church as having very liberal ideas about Christianity.”

    challenge the male-God, the “inmaculate” conception, and virgin life thereafter..

    me

  7. I was employing rhetoric 😆

  8. is he any good? we’re looking a gardener

  9. Wait until the Christian fanatics see Sex With THE Virgin Mary by Charles Webb. Cardinal George of Chicago and Archbishop Gregory of Atlanta are quoted, with other bishops, at sexwiththevirginmary.com and they all disapprove. There can be humor and sex and religion all wrapped up in one.
