There was no historic Jesus
but the fictional one had 2 dads, and hung out with 12 men
Happy Zombie Day
‘Jesus’ was not a ‘drag king’ or any other kind of king for one simple reason – he did not exist. There is not one jot of irrefutable evidence for his existence. The bible cannot be used to ‘prove’ his existence – that would be like using the Harry Potter novels to prove that Voldemort exists.
As for the ‘recorded history’ of ‘Jesus’ – it exists only in the bible. The ‘early sources’ often used to prove his existence were all compiled decades after the alleged events, and all stem from Christian authors eager to promote Christianity – which gives us reason to question them. We don’t even know for sure who ‘wrote’ these ‘books’ – they fail to describe their qualifications, or show any criticism with their foundational sources – which they also fail to identify. These books were also heavily edited to fit on with what became Christian theology – other books which contradicted the message were banned or completely ignored.
It would be nice to think that the founder of a major religion, responsible for the persecution and deaths of huge numbers of gay men was himself, at the very least, bisexual.
the Joseph references, 70 years after the alleged events, has since been proven a forgery.
Additionally, some years ago, an Italian scientist re-created the shroud of turin by using lemon juice and heat to create an image
also, the image on the shroud fails to conform to actual human dimensions
and the fabric is 13th century.
did you remember that mid 1980s Holy Blood/Holy Grail absurdist hoax book> Dan Brown later ripped that off for his novels.
to me it really showed how far people will go to avoid real work and perpetual a money for nothing and altar boys for free lifestyle.
Why did you run this story on Easter? It’s low class tabloid junk.
as opposed to what fox news does every day?
I don’t think we should try to mimic Fox News. I prefer actual LGBTQ journalism to this type of provocative tabloid click bait.
if you don’t like an article why not ignore it
rather than complain that the article exists?
why not let those who do enjoy such headlines do so?
Because Nina,the world doesnt revolve around you and people who share your idiotic opinion,there actually are other gay and lesbian people in the world who believe differently and have a different opinion than yourself and we have a voice too. So as long as there are rude near sighted narcissistic flakes such as yourself there is always going to be someone there to balance your madness out with intelligent conversation.
says a sock puppet troll who incites and insults
I have little doubt which 1) one of me or 2) all of you and your sock puppets too would be voted off the internet, never mind this site alone
Diversity is a good thing, you shouldn’t be bothered by other people existing and expressing viewpoints
your post collapses under it’s own contradictions.
Nina, first of all, welcome to the internet. What we do on here is read stuff and comment on it.
making a pointless post claiming an article is pointless
and being called out on that, is pointed posting
and just beyond your grasp.
but why comment in a manner that flags you as either a pointless poster (why is this posted, etc) at best,
or a troll. there are few queer newpapers left
so which do you want to be?
Going out of your way to read and comment on material you think is totally worthless is pretty dumb. Not that rightwing Christians aren’t dumb, or that there aren’t hordes of them online trolling sites and content they disagree with. Because you know, they own everything. Welcome to the internet.

LGBTQ nation should do a whole Jesus series
Jesus was Gay, Jesus was Bisexual, Jesus was not White and finish with Jesus never existed.
traffic is traffic and hits are internet ratings.
Nazareth was built by Rome in the 3rd century and the Romans never had the math to do a census. they did engineering and inventory math, and counted territories.
King James in the 17th century added the Census story in the bible so that the English would comply with the first government census of people.
in 2018, Blasphemy is Duty where not punishable by death.
Jesus never existed, whereas, Mohamed did.
You make a definitive statement about a non-existent Jesus, but there is no backing for that. Virtually all modern scholars of antiquity agree that Jesus existed historically. In other words, Jesus was a real person. He is even mentioned more than once in the writings of Josephus who lived close to that time. The question of Jesus’ divinity is another matter entirely and one of faith and belief in the biblical claims.
The burden of proof is on the positive claimant
atheism is the rejection of such theism.
by 2006 or maybe 07, the Ikea catalog out-published the bible, beating it’s publishing record in fewer years.
The Romans built Nazareth? That’s a first. Why would the Romans, conquerors of the Mediterranean world, waste any time or effort to build a tiny village in Galilee in Palestine, of all places? Some biblical scholars don’t even believe that Nazareth existed in ancient times.
3rd century spa town
Romans like their out of town locals
it’s the layer of dirt that last has any occupation artifacts
first you heard, doesn’t mean it’s not known or knowable
depends on how widely one reads, and for people who seek out
only echo chambers, maybe the internet is not the place for you.
there’s information here and the only thing worse than wrong facts or fallacies is spelling.
school never ever ends.
Well Mohamed Ali existed sure……
so did the prophet who must not be drawn
Mohamed was also a pedophile.
Jesus is a copy of the Moses story
There’s even Christians who reject Jesus in favour of John the Baptist
and bizarrely, there’s apparently Jews for Jesus.
it’s weird how religion evolves, even as followers deny science
biology doesn’t disprove religion. anthropology does
There is no such thing as multiple personality disorder.
Sybil faked it and fooled everyone.
Sybil was used by a doctor who wanted to name something
“Sybil” was a person. The doctor did not invent her.
why are you putting her in quotes and misreading what I wrote?
Sybil was real, all the others were made up by the doctor who invented the diagnosis.
same way certain therapists today convince patients they were satanical ritually abused or alien abducted or pray away the gay
“certain therapists?” is that what you experienced?
Given you are unfamiliar with the subject matter
dot dot dot
you probably can’t generalize from there, eh?
Whoever you are, you are wasting people’s time. There is indeed, and now it’s called dissociative personality disorder. Get out, troll. Before your mental illness starts showing…
Dissociative identity disorder is much debated, precisely because of the fraudulent stories and the possibility that many of those diagnosed are highly suggestible or fantasy-prone (and trying to please their doctors).
plus, there are those who whatever a person goes in for
comes out thinking they were satanically ritually abused or alien abducted
another area of concern with pray away the gay “therapy”
in Canada, a few years back,it was in the news.
on a greyhound bus a man killed another
in front of 30 or so witnesses, who fled off the bus
instead of doing nothing and nothing happening and accepting the voices was not real and did not speak true
cut off the head the victim (Tim McLean) and eat parts, because god voices told him to or be struck down himself
so when the cannibal went to rehab
they gave him a bible. which was where his problem started.
and by now, in 2018, greyhound cannibal gets day parole.
the medical profession needs to put religion in the manual
and stop pretending it is mentally healthy to be delusional
Exactly! And looking for book and movie rights.
Nobody fakes a mental illness for fame or movie rights. Not with the stigma surrounding psychiatric issues. “Oh, look, it’s the crazy bitch. Let’s harass the crap out of her because we’re scared of her.”
just the doctors who abuse patients
because they are the ones who do want to make a name for themselves. publish or perish and movie rights too
there was probably a time when more people saw therapy in movies than the numbers who could afford it
so too much of mental health ideas are based in people with too much wealth and time on their hands
the physical brain, including it’s chemistry, and mental health have only more recently been able to be studied and measured by objective means
rather than a doctor’s observations, and we know what observers do to the observed, eh?
google “The Three Christs of Ypsilanti”
Sybil book 1973, movie 1976 film.
The book succeeded beyond anyone’s expectations — it sold some 6 million copies around the world, and in 1976, it was made into a television movie starring Sally Field and Joanne Woodward.
NPR October 20, 2011 – Real ‘Sybil’ Admits Multiple Personalities Were Fake
“When Sybil first came out in 1973, not only did it shoot to the top of the best-seller lists — it manufactured a psychiatric phenomenon. The book was billed as the true story of a woman who suffered from multiple personality disorder. Within a few years of its publication, reported cases of multiple personality disorder — now known as dissociative identity disorder — leapt from fewer than 100 to thousands. But in a new book, Sybil Exposed, writer Debbie Nathan argues that most of the story is based on a lie.”

Self-Fulfilling Fakery: Feigning Mental Illness Is a Form of Self-Deception
“By pretending to be sick, people can convince themselves they really are.”
“People who fake symptoms of mental illness can convince themselves that they genuinely have those symptoms, a new study suggests. People will also adopt and justify signs of illness that they never reported themselves when presented with manipulated answers, according to the study published online July 9 in the Journal of Clinical and Experimental Neuropsychology. Not only do the findings demonstrate that deliberately feigning illness can evolve into an unconscious embellishment of symptoms, they indicate that self-perception of mental health is susceptible to suggestion. The study has particularly serious implications for cases in which people fake mental illness to take advantage of the legal system.”
You didn’t prove anything except that the AUTHOR wrote the book and that the woman behind the Sybil label was manipulated into thinking she’d been abused and had multiple personalities. I doubt the shrink anticipated such a wild success. (Did you forget ‘The Three Faces of Eve’? Or was that too long ago for you?)
Once the SRA narrative took hold, plenty of fraudsters claimed to be victims because they knew any detractors would be attacked.
Which is the type of bull crap the crowd that does not like psychiatry (Tom Cruise anyone?) uses to run from reality. Sure, there are fraudulent stories.
Scientology also promises to cure queer
