The Grail myth (married Jesus as a part of it) is a purely Western pagan myth (probably Celtic) grafted onto the Latin Church. The Greek and Coptic Churches (Gnostic writtings taken into consideration) which are closer to the source material never had to deal with this myth.

Was a fair show. Presented both sides of story. My faith is strong enough to explore other opinions.

"As several people mused about whether a married Jesus could still be divine"

Imagine a man being able to claim that the Son of God was his great, great, great, great, great, great, great, grandfather?

Of course you devout Christians out there understand that this blasphemous hypothesis of Jesus being married to Mary Magdelene is all about trying to make Jesus Christ less than Divine. It's quite similar to the Arian heresy, which claimed that Jesus was God's son, but that He was merely human and not divine. Satan never takes a rest, and neither should we in our fight to expose the bottom dwelling scumbag demon who attacks the divinity and sanctity of Our Lord.

ABC said it felt compelled to air this "special" because a four million people had read "The Da Vinci Code". There are millions of Muslims in this country, why no critical examination of Islam? There must be a million Buddhists in this country, why no critical examination of Buddhism? Hindus? Same-Same.

The Mary Magdalene wife of Jesus myth is a reformation of West Central pagan mythology retold and reshaped over time: Ean Begg’s the Cult of the Black Virgin is mostly about the origins of the mysterious Black Virgins of Europe and their connections to esoteric saints, goddess traditions, the Cathars and other heretical sects, and Jungian depth psychology. However, Begg also discusses the Priory of Sion and notes that in most records, the full name of the organization is the Order of Our Lady of Sion. He hints that that Lady might not be the Virgin Mary, Mary Magdalene, or even Isis, but instead the goddess Rosmerthe, associated with the Mount Sion found in Switzerland, and the female embodiment for the Celts of their ideal of sovereignty.

"Sion appears to have been at the nexus of two French anti-monarchical movements, the Compagnie du St.-Sacrament of the 17th century (acting on behalf on the Guise-Lorraine families) and the Fronde of the 18th, as well as an attempt to make the Hapsburgs emperors of all Europe in the 19th- the Hieron du Val d'Or."      - Steve Mizrach, "The Mysteries of Rennes-le-Château and the Prieure du Sion"

The final clue for study. Here is the key clue (and my own hypothesis-when I studied this the connection jumped out to me) - the French priest of this aristocratic cult, Berenger Sauniere who was patronized by European royalty (he was visited by the Archduke of Austria) in the 1890s got the money to build in the Catholic church several occultic themes that point to the origin of this myth back in time to the pagan days of old.

The grinning devil supports the Rennes Le Chateau's holy water vessel is, Asmodeus, also known as Ashmadia, most likely originated from the Persian Aeshma-deva ("demon of waith").

The apocryphal Book of Tobit describes an instance where Raguel's daughter, Sarah, was tormented by the demon. She was married seven times, each time the Asmodeus killed off the husband before they could have intercourse. Sarah, was about to hang herself in grief, but decided against it after thinking about the shame it would cause her father. She then prayed to God for death.

God answered her prayer by sending the angel, Raphael, to her aid. He instructed Tobiah to place fish liver and heart on the embers for incense. Asmodeus was repelled by the odor:

"The demon, repelled by the odor of the fish, fled into Upper Egypt; Raphael pursued him there and bound him hand and foot." - Tobit 8:3

The metaphor being that this demon (and the cult it represents) is repelled by the odor of the fish..the fish of course stands for Jesus.

One final point!

The said priest inscribed over the church's doorway:

"TERRIBILIS EST LOCUS ISTE"

This text, chiseled by the church's doorway dedicated to Mary Magdalene means: "THIS PLACE IS TERRIBLE"

And finally, Rennes-le-Château is situated in an area susceptible to earthbeams.
