A Minnesota professor who seems to be a Satanist argued this week that the Virgin Mary didn’t consent to turning into pregnant with Jesus.
Dr. Eric Sprankle, a psychology professor and intercourse therapist at Minnesota State College, Mankato, has Satanist posts peppered all through his social media feed.
On Monday, as Satanists ceaselessly do, he criticized Christianity by pointing to the story about Jesus’s virgin delivery, Campus Reform stories.
“The virgin delivery story is about an all-knowing, omnipotent deity impregnating a human teen. There isn’t any definition of consent that would come with that state of affairs. Comfortable Holidays,” Sprankle wrote on Twitter.
A Twitter person named Tom Cleary responded with a biblical passage that contradicts Sprankel’s declare.
“Sorry. [Luke] 1 26:38 states clearly that the angel communicated God’s plan for Mary and in verse 38 she agreed. Whether or not you imagine or disbelieve, it helps in the event you truly learn the textual content,” Cleary wrote.
Sprankle refused to again down.
“The biblical god commonly punished disobedience,” he wrote. “The facility distinction (deity vs mortal) and the potential for violence for saying ‘no’ negates her ‘sure.’ To place somebody on this place is an unethical abuse of energy at greatest and grossly predatory at worst.”
Abortion activists have been utilizing an analogous consent argument these days, claiming that consent to intercourse shouldn’t be the identical as consent to being pregnant, subsequently aborting an unborn child is okay.
