He says, Jesus was the son of Mary and a Roman soldier who raped Her

Whoa!  When I heard this I had to stop and take a deep breath. 

Paul Verhoeven the director of ‘Basic Instinct’ believes and has considered this for the past two decades. I’m not surprised that he holds this as a possible truth.  I’m shocked that not only does he have the balls – {not courage} – to vocalize it, but soon will release a book. 

“Jesus of Nazareth:  A Realistic Portrait” is due to hit the shelves this fall.  An Amsterdam publishing house is prepared to take the risk.  No matter how badly this autobiograhy of Jesus is hated, watch how everyone will flock to their local bookstores to make a purchase the day it’s released.   I see a New York Times Best Seller in the making. 

Of course, this isn’t the first time the purity of Jesus’ birth has been challenged or, that Jesus’ father was really a rapist.

Kirk Bingaman, director of the pastoral counseling program at Fordham University’s Graduate School of Religion, said the idea that Mary was raped and that the rapist was Jesus’ father is not new.

“The idea goes back to ancient sources from the 1st or 2nd century; I personally don’t put a lot of stock in it. How would we ever know? We don’t have any empirical proof. I subscribe to the Apostles’ Creed that Jesus was conceived of the Virgin Mary,” he said.

Regardless as to whether or not ? – this is his truth as he has come to know it.

He’s a man of the Catholic faith that holds a doctorate in mathematics and physics from the University of Leiden. Verhoeven was a regular attendee of the Jesus Seminar which was co-founded by the late religion scholar Robert W. Funk.

My only hope is that seeing as this will be considered a blasphemy against the religious & christians most high – “Don’t kill Verhoeven or burn his house down, possibly injuring those who are only innocent bystanders”.

Let him believe in his intrepretation and meaning – Can you as a Christian handle the challenge(s) of your beliefs?

  1. Interesting idea, I had never considered rape. I just assumed Mary was screwing around and invented a fantastic story about being impregnated by god to avoid being stoned or whatever they did to “bad girls” back in the day.

  2. Wow, I had never considered that?

  3. pippylongstockings

    my family members believe this.

  4. You said, “the religious & christians most high – “Don’t kill Verhoeven or burn his house down, possibly injuring those who are only innocent bystanders”.

    We are not Islamic we do not react with violence, we understand that a person has a right to express themselves no mater how wrong they may be.

  5. Oh I see you are one of those Christians who live in lie and denial , huh?

    Bombing abortion clinics assaulting the people who stand in line picketing etc is called Violence my friend.

    The way you great Christians came to America was thru violence you founded youre nation in violence – your Holy Bible is violent.

    But, hey it’s okay just keep right on living your Lie.

  6. No I have no respect for people who bomb abortion mills. They are as sick as the people who strap bombs to their children and murder innocent people.

    I live no lie, I live by the truth the men who developed our Constitution set forth for us to live, a country of freedom of religion and all men are created equal.

  7. These are your words not mine —

    “We are not Islamic we do not react with violence, we understand that a person has a right to express themselves no mater how wrong they may be.”

    (That clearly states that Christians are not violent). and we know this not true – Christians are the most violent in the name of their Jesus & God.

    And being Islamic doesn’t make you anymore ‘violent’ -AS- being a ‘Christian’ makes you non-violent.

    What the Islamic strap bombs to their children and Christians do what? Drown them in bathtubs, kill them w/the brutality and force of their own hands? Thrown their newborns in garbage cans/dumpsters – need I go on?

    There is no difference – Murder is Murder. And violence is violence.

    And the truth of the men who developed the Constitution – Wow – that’s a whole separate story in itself.
