That's,the point ..FINALLY A RESPONSE ..<quoted text>
Mary doesn't need me to defend her against atheists. I do feel an obligation to defend her against folks who claim to be Christian, if only to help you avoid making a huge mistake. I don't know the priest, never heard of him before now, and what he says is mere historical speculation. It has no effect on my beliefs or the teachings of the Church. You should grow a thicker skin.
He is,NOT some obscure priest ..he,was,in Vatican bible councils,.some High office on Scripture ...You all should know . Don't you think??
IF HE IS,QUESTIONING the birth story ...??? That puts your whole Mariology AND our knowledge at question..
Maybe you could find out??? I'm not buying his book which the CATHOLUC Sites was is out of print . But is,available on Amazon..???
ANYWAY I DON'T KNOW,..But it's,bothersome ..And I should,NOT be the only one bothered
