So I get a lot of weird/strange/odd/amusing/sad/touching/compelling requests from people to promote their business/project. But this seems kind of special.
This fellow says he’s a direct descendant of Jesus and Mary Magdalene. And, well, you can read the rest. Here’s an excerpt from his pitch at GoFundMe.com:
We are the secret direct bloodline family of Jesus Christ. Our names are: Richard, Jane & Ethan.
It has been a guarded secret for nearly 2000 years that Jesus was married to Mary Magdalene and had issue that brings us through time to our present family.
The bloodline progressed through Jesus and Mary’s daughter Sarah as she was pregnant at the time of Jesus’s crucifixion. Mary gave birth and formed a dynastic line in France that today by grace of God is in America.
We are the direct Holy Royal Bloodline also known in code as “The Holy Grail” which pertains to this great secret and not as popular tradition dictates ‘the cup’ used at the last supper.
Let’s just say I’m skeptical. But I will await final word — or should I say Word? — from the folks at Politifact.
