The Rape of the Virgin Mary

15 Feb

Rape is non-consensual sexual activity. If a man or a woman does not give consent, then it is rape. (Same if they are unable to give consent, like drunk or passed out)

In the annunciation god just announces to Mary that she is pregnant.

Luke 1:26-35

26 In the sixth month of Elizabeth’s pregnancy, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, 27 to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. 28 The angel went to her and said, “Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you.”

29 Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be. 30 But the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favor with God. 31 You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus. 32 He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, 33 and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever; his kingdom will never end.”

34 “How will this be,” Mary asked the angel, “since I am a virgin?”

35 The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come on you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called [a] the Son of God.

There was no asking Mary “Hey, do you consent to this?”, she had no choice, god just knocked her up and told her afterwards.

I can foresee people saying “Oh, but she was fine with it! How can it be rape if she’s ok with it?” Simple. Did she consent to being impregnated before she was impregnated? No. Then it’s rape. It does not matter if she is ok with it afterwards. I know a girl here at college that was drugged and raped by a guy she liked. She refused to press charges afterwards because she thought he was “a nice guy” but that does not change the fact that she was raped. Just like Mary.

    Um, no.

    Notice the use of the future-tense. Then read the next verse, 38: “I am the Lord’s servant,” said Mary; “may it happen to me as you have said.” And the angel left her.

    That looks an awful lot like consent to me. You could argue that she wasn’t in a position to say no, but that’s a bit pedantic.

    However, since there’s clearly no wedding ceremony going on here, you can still accurately describe Jesus as a bastard. ;)

    Aw, I stand corrected. (How many people will say that on their own blog?) To be honest I just googled “the annunciation” and the verses given to me stopped at 35. I should have looked farther than that. You’re right though, still a bastard. ~_^

    if your going to use the Bible to prove anything against God then at least read the whole story. she was called the virgin Mary because she did not have sex or get raped to give birth to Jesus. When they say that God will come on to her that just means that he will put baby Jesus in her non sexually. Hence the name VIRGIN Mary and Joseph was also ticked off at Mary and was about to get her stoned to death but the angel came to Joseph and told him she was not with another to have the baby. so next time read the story mmkay? ;)

    indeed you are right and you are the rapist. All are guilty and all are forgiven. That is the story!!!!! That is why the early Christians such as Stephen were being stoned to death. The fingerprints are pretty clear who wrote this text.

    “All eyewitnesses and hard core empiricists are fools and idiots especially those who solely read a book to inform themselves, I Thomas write that I am an empiricist and I have touched the wound of Christ himself. ”

    The stoics no less. The liars paradox in the story itself. It’s written for intellectual, hairless poodles who are a bit confused, and it’s written so the story can be both taught to a child “how do you explain rape to a child” and yet when you actually grow a penis and vagina that is functional then the young adult can be led into what is love….You have no intellectual penis just like a rapist, has no intellectual penis no intellectual balls, they have they are undeveloped.

    To funny the intellectutal dominate MAN GOD, magikally by artifical insemination from his good star trek ship HEAVEN telaports his GOD SEMAN into mary!!! Who through the magiK of her magikal vagina gives birth to the MAN GOD and she is his MOMMY!!!. The text does not write the literal rape narrative that actually happens because the text asks directy, “Who is joseph!!!”…You most certainly are not Joseph you have no penis nor ballse poodle….;:D Gnaustism nonsense that the religious and irreligious dumb fucks….
