Merry Xmas From The Religious Left


Here’s the Rev. Chloe Breyer, priestess of the Episcopal Church USA (and daughter of SCOTUS justice Stephen Breyer), explaining why Jesus might really have been born a bastard, and why it’s good for women if we were to believe that his mother had conceived him with a man not her husband. Meanwhile, over on the Catholic side, the Jesuit-published America magazine is in hot water for running an advertisement for an, ahem, work of art featuring a statue of the Virgin Mary swathed in a condom. Diogenes at the Catholic World News blog doesn’t buy the Jebbies’ sham explanation for this sacrilege.
