    3 is a magic number.

    What ignorant nonsense.

    The phrase 'only begotten son' refers to the incarnation rather than the virginal status of jesus' mother. In the gospel, there are mentions of 'jesus' brothers' and the reader is free to speculate biological siblings without contradicting the nicene creed.

    Fyi, the source of the catholic church's teaching on the 'blessed virgin' comes from the protoevangelium of james (which itself is not a canonical book).

    All moral people would follow that good example.

    Why would God sin and covet Mary and use her to produce a chimera half breed son when incarnation can be done by God without his having to cuckold Joseph?

    Why does God and the so of God find women so attractive that they decide to covet them?

    God and his sons are one species and man another and such combinations are called bestiality. Right?

    7 is also magic. So is 40.

    Define bestiality and see that it fits what I put.

    Strange that the deity you wish to be in you is a genocidal son murdering God.

    Why do you like such a prick?
