For Your Convenience
|by Roberto Rivera|
Anthony Sacramone at First Things has put together a list of what Mark Shea calls "Shocking Revelations that shake Christianity to its very foundations," or SRTSCTIVF for short. In addition to Captain Nemo's discovery of Jesus', Mary Magdalene's, their son, Jude's, and their dog, Skippy's ossuaries, we can add
As Shea points out, this list isn't without problems. That why he's calling for "some sort of ecumenical council to sort all this out."
After all, if Jesus never existed, then it's going to be tough for him to have bones and DNA. Dittos if he was eaten by wild dogs. If he was a woman, than marriage to Mary Magdalene and a huge family gets tough. If he was an alien, then the DNA will be very curious to behold.
Yeah, but that's what makes them shocking revelations.
