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

See my #4 - I actually care about this myth from a sociological - historical perspective. It gains insight into the workings of Western European upper class mythological constructions. This myth was not a myth the Serfs-peasants held to.

Fair? This garbage is preposterous as well as blasphemous.

Theosophists, lesbians and airheads unfettered by conscience, science or discretion.

Didn't see it, but the comment Jesus wasn't an asexual Jewish radical who consorted with a prostitute and a gang of guys, one of whom was an androgyne; instead, he was a normal family man. Represents the kind of theological strawman that McBrien is famous for. The simple fact is that McBrien doesn't accept the monk as the ideal Christian. Instead he promotes an idealized view of clerical marriage.
