Jesus is a Bastard (love child, nullius filius)?

How would you say something like - Jesus is a child of an unwed woman, and impregnated by a non-human (Angel, God, whatever).

"His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be with child through the Holy Spirit." (Matthew 1:18)

Here is the question I am trying to answer. How do you express Matthew 1:18 in a concise way. 6 words or less total, starting with "Jesus is a..." . Convey the same information, with quality, and not being wordy.

I just created a blog entry on my regular blog
and some twitter @JackRussell8888 traffic (#JesusIsABastard) on this topic.
I would like to find out a concise way to describe Matthew 1:18.

See my blog for the latest on this topic and hear how others think they can express this concisely.

I will state this right now. I am not trying to be blasphemous or insulting.
I would like some real honest opinions on how people think about this topic.

Looking forward to reading your posts...

Seems to me there are more than a few Greek Mystery tales that start out like that - horny god, hot young mortal and bingo we have a demigod.

I think it makes much more sense that a poor scared girl that had premarital sex, which was SEVERELY punishable by society, got scared that she was pregnant and made a lie up with her potential husband. It benefits both of them to make it up because it would have been shame to them forever if they hadn't. (virgin birth? HAHAHA silly christians)
