Jesus Christ was not God, and Mary was not a virgin, according to a controversial new book written by an Australian Catholic priest.
â€œWhat a breathtaking know-all, to claim he knows the mind of Christ contrary to scripture and tradition. His words rob Christianity entirely of its meaning and purpose,â€ Father Robbie told News Ltd.
â€œThe Council of Nicaea settled the question that Christ was God in 325, so he is 1700 years out of date.
â€œThe rest is a regurgitation of every discredited 19th-century liberal Protestant German cliche in the book.â€
Sounds like liberals telling biological determinists or conservatives or traditionalists that they’re crazy, out of date, not Progressive enough, etc. and it’s the same mechanism: imply ignorance of the other to hide your own.
