    I'm not saying it did happen. I'm just saying it would have no negative impact on his divinity. Unless of course there is something sinful with loving someone, getting married and having children.
    The iconography and symbolism of Jesus' divinity has him already taking the Church itself as a bride. That is because Jesus is the Word of God, the Ark of the Covenant made flesh.

    How about the Biblical view of marriage being one of two people becoming one, and as such, Mary Magdelene (or any other wife) would then have become of God?

    The problem isn't "accomplishing his goal." The problem is with who he was.

    I think you need to go back and keep reading.

    Wait, now I remember. You're that guy. Yeah, don't bother responding to me. I have no interest in a conversation with you. I've seen the extent of your interactions and, frankly, I'm just not interested.

    So your complaint is that there were some bad people who tried to do stuff in the name of the church. How exactly does that Bash the church? Plenty of movies have bad people doing stuff in the name of the government yet they aren't bashing the government. The church came out on top in both movies and looking good. I'd say The passion of the Christ "bashed" the hebrew faith more than either the DVC or A&D "bashed" the church. But then again I was applying your standard

    If the literal interpretation is true then yes. Mary would also then become a man, or vice versa.

    It's a spiritual union, not a physical one. That's not at all unclear.
