Jesus may have been a hermaphrodite, claims academic


A feminist theologian has stoked controversy by publishing a paper arguing that Jesus might have been a hermaphrodite.

Dr Susannah Cornwall claimed that it is “simply a best guess” that Jesus was male.

In her paper “Intersex & Ontology, A Response to The Church, Women Bishops and Provision”, she argues that it is not possible to know “with any certainty” that Jesus did not suffer from an intersex condition, with both male and female organs.




The Telegraph


“There is no way of knowing for sure that Jesus did not have one of the intersex conditions which would give him a body which appeared externally to be unremarkably male, but which might nonetheless have had some “hidden” female physical features.”

Dr Cornwall argues that the fact that Jesus is not recorded to have had children made his gender status “even more uncertain”.


Dr Susannah Cornwall continues


About 1 in every 2,500 people is born with an intersex condition which means that their body varies from the typical male or female pattern.

Whilst some people have intersex conditions which manifest in genitals which look unusual, other intersex people have no external visible ambiguity. It’s therefore possible that Jesus – in common with many other people whose sex is never called in question – had a hidden or “invisible” intersex condition.

Just like I'll never know if Susannah Cornwall is a hermaphrodite or not...I'm just going to go ahead and assume she(or should I say, "it") is a hermaphrodite.

wtf is making people so stupid...how does a doctor come up with that? That's something I'd expect to come up on GLP.

Oh my god thats funny.

academics


So we cant prove that he wasnt a hermaphrodite


I tend to believe that jesus had three penises. He was a step up on a diphallia. A triphallia if you will. He also pooped icecream. We cant be sure that he didnt.

From the Gospel of Thomas (Patterson-Meyer Translation): 22. Jesus saw some babies nursing. He said to his disciples, "These nursing babies are like those who enter the (Father's) kingdom." They said to him, "Then shall we enter the (Father's) kingdom as babies?" Jesus said to them, "When you make the two into one, and when you make the inner like the outer and the outer like the inner, and the upper like the lower, and when you make male and female into a single one, so that the male will not be male nor the female be female, when you make eyes in place of an eye, a hand in place of a hand, a foot in place of a foot, an image in place of an image, then you will enter [the kingdom]."

Strange speech by Jesus. ...and when you make male and female into a single one, so that the male will not be male nor the female be female... then you will enter the kingdom.

What a tard.

OP are you on the same level?

He was bare ass naked nailed to a cross. We never knew this from the bible but from the writings of his enemies. That is how the history was weighed to be true.

OP are you a hermy trying to come out? serious question. no offense.

To be fair, she isn't a bad looking 'women'.



Besides the fact that she is a feminist, part of what is going on is the 'publish or die' pressure that academics are under.

Dear ollncasino,

And what proof do we have that you are not one and what would it matter if you were? What is your point?

The highest goal in Alchemy is the "Alchemical Wedding" of the male and female principles.



Given this, could there be a gnostic/mystical current of Christianity focusing on the same concept vis-a-vis Christ?

Shes a Feminist - check the armpits for pubes!!!!



I kid I kid..

but no, really.. check..

(no dont..)

she is kinda hot, but since she's a complete lunatic, I guess it will take 5 wines to get her open to casual tomfoolery, as opposed to the usual 3.

Oh well, thats out of my budget.

I think she is just trying to get herself known by saying something shocking to get attention.

this reminds me of the episode of southpark about thanksgiving having aleins

well we do know that the never said anything about aleins not being there as well as not saying they were so we do not know so it is possible just like it is possible that jesus had girl parts.......if you ask me these ideas skew history and destroy the ideas of world history.

reminds me of a previous talk on this forum where a guy went on a archelogical dig with some lds guy who went nuts trying to figure out why things didnt add up the the book of morman. people skew history to their own liking to much

Jamie Lee Curtis can confirm two theories at once by playing Jesus in a movie!

NOTE: Her initials are JC. Just sayin'.

Apparently she is trying to justify female priests, using the logic that Jesus may have been sexually confused in some way.


It is therefore difficult to argue that priesthood – or the capacity to be legitimately consecrated as a bishop – rests in biological male sex. It might rest in being recognized socially as a man, but that is something different.

The fact that there is no evidence whatsoever that Jesus was anything other than a man, doesn't seem to distract her in her feminist agenda.

Perhaps Cleopatra was a Greek soldier in drag?
Catherine the Great was arguably a Polish builder in a wig?
Jack the Ripper was in fact a Somali one legged, Lesbian, Muslim convert?

We can't be 100% sure after all.

I'm sorry Ms. Cornwall but this type of garrulous rhetoric will get you no where in the scholarly community. If you want the proper notoriety and accreditation please write papers with a coherent structure and factual premise. I am completely perplexed as to what your reasoning behind submitting this garbage was. The only thing you've proved is that you yourself could possibly be a hermaphrodite and 1 in 2500 people is a hermaphrodite, thank you for that. Also, it's called the IMMACULATE conception for a reason, those divine chromosomes are flawless

Intersex, hermaphrodite, tetraploid chimera..

we're all barers of god's gift of diversity, even genetically identical twins for God's sake..

Some feminists have had a problem with the concept of "god", or Jesus in this case, being considered male.

Let's change it! Wouldn't want the youngins to grow up with poor self esteem.

i would rather the youngyins grow up with poor self esteem than to grow up with a skewed version of history.

thats like these teachers i know who want to say the second amendment was about protecting us agaist indians anf critters so as not to promote violence..

shame i say how people want to change things just to make things more palatable to themselves

That appears to be the feminist agenda. Undermine anything which is male, build up anything which is female.

Not always with feminists. Well, actually, always.

Maybe she would have gotten more attention claiming that you can't prove Jesus was human. She could claim he could have been an alien. I believe she would have just as much evidence which is nil or nothing.

I suspect a rumour such as this garbage would have started over 2000 years ago if it was true rather than by a feminist trying to get attention 2000 years later.
