Why does the theory "Jesus was divine being but had to be female because biology" get more attention here than either "Jesus wasn't born miraculously from a virgin and wasn't a divine being" or "Jesus was divine being and his birth was a miracle so he could have been male."
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

It's not exactly a theory I personally espouse, I just tangented off it because it made me think.


Quote from: The_Queen
However, intelligent people can see the same issues, evidence, and inferences, and reach different conclusions. That is the human experience.

If you see me posting something you perceive as a contradiction of things I said before, then you should probably only regard the thing I said most recently as relevant: past me is an idiot.

Probably because the former is the topic of the thread. If you were to ask what people actually think, I can't imagine it would be anywhere near the top answer.

Counterpoint: God is male, and Jesus is in every Biblical source said to be the son of God, which would imply that he does have a Y chromosome, just not a human one. No, he has the divine Y chromosome.

Assuming the Bible is literal fact, of course.

It's unfortunate to see that some people have such an attachment to the Bible that they pretend it says things that sound nice in contemporary society when it often said the opposite.

Look elsewhere for mythology that has anything nice to say about transpeople. Christianity is a force of hostility toward people that aren't men born male.

Because, as we all know, every single Christian is a transphobe.

And that's rich coming from somebody who deliberately misgendered a transwoman.

1) You're misreading the thread. Headcanonning Jesus as trans is not about what the Bible says, it's about what it doesn't. A headcanon is not necessarily supported by the author, it just has to be not actively contradicted. Nobody thinks early Christians were in favour of trans people.

2) The Bible does not have anything at all to say about trans people, positive or negative (I'm welcome to being proven wrong here). Modern Christianity does, but that's not the same thing.

3) Galatians 3:28 "There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus." Emphasis mine.
