Gag me with a spoon. . .
A new book...
The Two Marys: The Hidden History of the Mother and Wife of Jesus
Are you kidding me?!
Here's what Amazon says... unbelievable how stupid people are; even more unbelievable how stupid Amazon thinks Christians are.
"Ms. Browne is as close as publishing gets to a sure thing." [yeah, shameless...]
-The Wall Street Journal
Many controversies have remained unanswered in Christianity for centuries [uhhh, yeah like "was Jesus married?" I know that was the first question I had after reading the Gospels. Guffaw.]. Some of these controversies have recently drawn increased attention due to new discoveries in archaeology [B and S] as well as bestsellers and movies such as The Jesus Tomb and The Da Vinci Code. With the unique perspective only Sylvia Browne could bring, The Two Marys focuses on one of the greatest unknowns: the lives of the two most important women in the life of Jesus.
Jesus' mother had an enormous influence on him, which has mostly been marginalized by the Christian churches [Yeah, for instance in Catholicism...]. Contrary to the beliefs of all the Christian religions, Jesus did marry Mary Magdalene [notice the editorial trump card- "What??? You didn't know that FACT, you must be a stupid Christian." Thanks, Amazon.], and she too influenced his teaching. In The Two Marys, New York Times bestselling author Sylvia Browne uncovers the hidden history of these two women in a remarkable book that will be the perfect gift this Christmas season.
