Note: There is some debate as to whether Joseph and Mary were actually man and wife. See the link in the comments section for more info.
I think Madonna’s confused. She’s been wearing a crown of thorns and crucifying herself at concerts on her current tour. Next she’ll be throwing stone tablets down on the crowd and parting the Red "C."
To be consistent with her namesake, shouldn’t Madonna’s big, controversial tour stunt be popping out kids without doing the nasty? Those kids could later be crucified to complete the scenario, of course.
Yeah, I agree, it’d be hard to convince anyone Madonna hadn’t done the nasty.
What’s the story on the original Madonna, anyway? Allegedly Mary was a virgin when she had J.C. How did she get past the wedding night without giving up the goods to Joseph? Was he impotent or something, living as he did 2000 years before Viagra?
Maybe theirs was simply a marriage of convenience to convince others that Joseph wasn’t really, you know, "that way."
I can't just assume Mary's lack of congress was the fault of poor Joe, though. Perhaps she was frigid?
Or maybe the "Immaculate Conception" was just a fabrication of the church, enabling them to have their salvation cake and eat it too. A savior without the dirty business or guilt. Well, guilt about his earthly parents having sex, anyway.
(Is it just me, or does "Immaculate Conception" sound like an indication there was no post-coital "leakage" from the woman?)
Apparently, Mary not only did not have to do "the act" to conceive J.C., but until that point hadn't even done her "wifely duty" by Joseph. As a man, barring one of the two explanations about him above, I can't buy that.
And, come on, even the most conservative faiths permit sex within marriage.
So Mary was, like, a virgin mother? Yeah, like, I'm so sure.
