    So, there IS no Biblical reference. Thought as much.

    That is a funny name because we are talking about the Gospel of Jesus Christ - the Son of God. Not a recently re-discovered "gospel" about a woman whose identity isn't even clear.

    Well yeah, the bible is a collection of writings hand picked by "men." There were other writings of the time. One was the gospel of Mary. Of course it wasn't included. Despite trying to diminish her she still makes it into the gospels that were included. Despite the church's attempts to remake her into a whore she remains an early leader of the church that will not be denied in the ancient writings.

    Modern scholars aren't even in agreement as to which Mary the misnamed "Gospel of Mary" is a reference to. No one is trying to diminish the role of EITHER Mary. You are trying to drum up something that has little or no relevance to reality.

    No relevance? I find it particularly relevant to the topic at hand that one of the most prominent women in and out of the bible was framed up as a tainted whore before the Church got their collective heads out of their ass and admitted sheepishly that , "Yeah, ok she probably wasn't a whore but she wasn't no damn apostle either. "

    Jesus never wrote a gospel and none were written during his supposed lifetime. Just so you know.

    Mary Magdelene is a recognized Saint of the Church. She CERTAINLY was not an apostle.

    I am aware of that, but it is still HIS good news. That is why the preferred names of the gospel accounts are "The Gospel ACCORDING TO Matthew", "The Gospel ACCORDING to Mark", etc.

    Re: Pope condemns sexual violence against women

    BTW, POpe Gregory did NOT refer to Mary Magdelene as a whore, he referred to her as a sinner. Look up the word "peccatrix" if you would.

    Anymore SLANDER against the Church you would like to bring up?
