I actually did know that... It's just a was recently having a rather heated discussion with a Pentecostal acquaintance regarding Mary's supposed abstinence. And her lack of insight, and refusal to look at any source other than the KJV translation bothered me, as if it was the only interpretation. ANYHOW... I did know about the mistranslation, and actually attempted to use that very argument. Didn't work, but I suppose if reason would work as an argument... she wouldn't be religious in the first place. lol

Well, closest to the original we have. XD

@Ivy, I love the Sandpeople pic.
@Laura, actually the entire "virgin birth" myth is due to a mistranslation. The original text refers to Mary as a "young woman", and this was misinterpreted as "virgin".

Isn't it the Mormon bible the one that says god actually came to earth and did the deed with Mary?? How would that make her a virgin then?

Now Joseph, we all know it was immaculate conception... Mary was never soiled by such a vile thing.

Well, it worked for Mary, at least.

Despite some requests to delete the Lynch video, I'm going to let it stand. He's not my cup of tea, but the song is appropriate to the group. He's ridiculously heavy-handed about it to the point where you think he might actually *mean* that crap, but his intentions are good. And in fairness, the misogyny of the piece easily paints men in a less than flattering light.

And in the interest of good humor, here's the inimitable John R. Butler's The Hand of the Almighty (He'll Fuck You Up).

Regarding the Stephen Lynch song, all folks do not find the same things humorous. And that's certainly OK. Personally, I took that one as a satirical reference to the Biblical proclamations of the "unclean-ness" of a woman at that time of the month. The audience at the venue seemed to enjoy it too. Stephen Lynch sings other songs with religious topics. "Craig" is a sacreligious song about Jesus' brother, Craig Christ. "Beelz" is aka the Satan Song. And there's this one...

@Riomarcos- What is funny about it?  That song is full of negative stereotypes about women.
