The 700 Club, an evangelical Christian organization, came together in front of Wall Street to pray for Divine intervention in the economy. Their plan was to pray for an economic shift over to God.

The gathering was centered around a very famous piece of art, which was made the centerpiece:



Now, wait, this looks familiar. Where have we seen this before? I remember something about---

AH! There it is.



What a depressing irony.

Doug, how's this for 'waiting game fodder:

Mary was a virgin before, during, and after Childbirth.

That ought to send you scurrying to dig up Spongian heretical diatribes and quasi-scholastic rebuttals!

What's your prayer rule, by the way?
(Forgive me if I ask too personal a question.)

Interesting take.

Your education was worth every penny!

I forgive you. It's what Yeshua would do.

That reminds me of a good slogan I recently heard: "What would Jesus bomb?"

You might get this one, a bumper-sticker reading,
"Honk 40 Times If You're Orthodox!"

Great, Doug!
Thanks!
I can appreciate all those. If you or anyone would like an explanation of any of those, let me know.

Sure will - we'll get you to interpret!

I get some of them considering that I studied Orthodoxism along with all my other isms, but I certainly don't pretend to know everything about it.

Poor Mary, all that pain for no gain.

If you really believe that I have some hot stock tips for you.

The phase "born of a vigin" wouldn't have anything to do with the constellation of Virgo would it? That might explain the reference to a virgin, as a time rather than an event.

patrask, per your Virgin comment and reading your other posts, I'd say, too bad you didn't listen to your Papa.

There is absolutely no proof for that claim, especially because the part about Mary being a Virgin may have been added later.

And, the final nail in the coffin:

"c.1200, "unmarried or chaste woman noted for religious piety and having a position of reverence in the Church," from O.Fr. virgine, from L. virginem (nom. virgo) "maiden, unwedded girl or woman," also an adj., "fresh, unused," probably related to virga "young shoot." For sense evolution, cf. Gk. talis "a marriageable girl," cognate with L. talea "rod, stick, bar." Meaning "young woman in a state of inviolate chastity" is recorded from c.1310. Also applied since c.1330 to a chaste man. Meaning "naive or inexperienced person" is attested from 1953. The adj. is recorded from 1560 in the lit. sense; fig. sense of "pure, untainted" is attested from c.1300. Virginity is attested from c.1303, from O.Fr. virginite, from L. virginitatem (nom. virginitas), from virgo."

While the latin root word of "virgin" is related to "vergo" the Greek word for "virgin" is completely unrelated to the word "virgo".

What should be a long-ago discounted attempt at a linguistic link, as conceived by 19th century indo-european nationalists and social darwinists in favor of an Aryan Race, is not only outdated but completely unfounded.

I opened up my Strong's Concordance, and the word translated as virgin used to describe Mary is:

"Parthenos".
