New Film to Claim Jesus Was Born After Mary Was Raped By Roman Soldier
News Buster.com ^ | June 25, 2012 | Noel Sheppard

Posted on 06/25/2012 10:04:26 AM PDT by Kaslin

It's taken over four years for film director Paul Verhoeven to get anyone to turn his 2008 book "Jesus of Nazareth" into a movie, but numerous sources last week say he's finally done it.

Deadline reported last Tuesday that Muse Productions will produce the film claiming Jesus Christ was the product of Mary being raped by a Roman soldier:

Jesus might have been the product of his mother being raped by a Roman soldier, which Verhoeven said was commonplace at the time, and that Jesus was a radical prophet who performed exorcisms and was convinced he would find the kingdom of Heaven on earth, and did not know he would be sentenced to die on the cross by Pontius Pilate. That, and the discounting of the miracles that pepper the New Testament, has made this a daunting project to set up.

Those not familiar with his name certainly will recognize some of Verhoeven's directorial hits including "Robocop," "Total Recall," and "Basic Instinct."

Roger Avary, who won an Oscar for co-writing 1994's "Pulp Fiction," has been tapped to adapt the book into a screenplay.

Indiewire noted Wednesday:

[T]he adaptation will depict Jesus in a more human light, hence the reason the miracles and the resurrection are being stripped from the story. Instead, Jesus will be portrayed as an ethicist and a radical prophet, whose message became too politically strong for the Romans to idly accept and endure. While that version may not seem blasphemous to Verhoeven, it more than likely is for many.

Given President Obama's recent "evolution," one has to wonder if the producers will figure out a way to implicitly or explicitly accuse Jesus of also being homosexual.

That's got to be next, right?

Although I can see how the ignorant could have gotten it confused.

That “Nautius Maximus” got around!

Verhoeven, your backers are going to take a bath.

Hopefully not in a lake of fire.

"did not know he would be sentenced to die"

That's odd, I know exactly when, where and how I am going to die. /s

Gee.
I wonder why this brave hollywood type didn't instead invent a similar incident in mohatmutts life.

Did mohatmutt even have a mother?

Hang on.

This just in...
There is a persistent rumor that this extravagant epic is actually about mohatmutt's life, but it is being kept under wraps for now in deference to an enhanced likelihood of Paul Verhoeven attaining an additional birthday.

Fatwahs and going all koranimal on him is very much on the horizon.

MANDY
Well, I suppose I should have told you a long time ago, but... Well, Brian... your father isn’t Mr. Cohen.

BRIAN
I never thought he was!

MANDY
Now none of your cheek. He was a Roman, Brian. He was a centurion in the Roman army.

BRIAN
You mean... you were raped?

MANDY
Well, at first, yes.

BRIAN
Who was he?

MANDY
Heh. Nortius Maximus his name was. Hmm. Promised me the known world he did. I was to be taken to Rome, house by the Forum, slaves, asses’ milk. As much gold as I could eat. Then, he, having his way with me had... voom! Like a rat out of an aqueduct.

BRIAN
The bastard.

MANDY
Yeah. So next time you go on about the bloody Romans, don’t forget you’re one of them!

Whatever, I'm waiting for the movie on Mohammed that shows that he was an epileptic suffering from seizures. In the meantime, I think I'll wait for glaciers to reach Florida.

BTW, I actually did like "The Last Temptation of Christ", even though I know it was technically blasphemous.

I am not one for burning books however in this case, Verhoeven tied to a stake with all his books and copies of his film piled around his feet being set on fire would earn my approval.

It certainly is outrageous, and rather silly. The writers are assuming that Jesus and his followers were liars, but that except for a nearly compulsive level of dishonesty on His mission, they were miraculously good people. That takes a much bigger suspension of disbelief that simply accepting that the Creator of heaven and earth chose to save our souls in a manner that still resonates 2,000 years later.

More people to add to my personal boycott list. It’s so refreshing to see liberals be respectful of other people’s cultures, isn’t it? The funny part is that these horrid people may not need to fear anything from Christians, but Muslims think of Jesus as a prophet, and may not take too kindly to this movie either. I hope these people have some good life insurance for their families’ sake. Fireworks at 11:00!

I certainly would not want to be in there shoes, IF they ever stand at the pearly gates (assuming they don’t go straight to the black, stinking, rotting, empty, fire burning depths of hell)....

It is outrageous.

For years the atheists denied Christ even existed.

Then they said He planned His own crucifixion as a hoax
(Passover Plot). All the while religious fanatics blamed the Jews for killing Him. Then the Romans were blamed for killing Him. They have also claimed He was homosexual. Now they are casting aspersions on His birth, and defaming His mother, claiming this totally unsubstantiated story about a rape - again blaming the Romans.

Does their perversity and malice know no limits??

I think no other religious figure in history has been as much maligned and attacked than Jesus Christ. And NONE for so little reason.

Even while He was rejected by the political and theological elites of His own day, He is still subjected to groundless calumnies by their successors in the present day politically correct elites.

Those churches in the world which are still unabashedly Christian - from a religious and social perspective - had better launch some kind of modern day philosophical Crusade to restore the belief in Christ among those who are nominal Christians, or some day we will wake up and find our descendants are all Muslims and we are living in the same kind of Islamic hell which is found in Iran and Saudi Arabia.

There is nothing new under the sun, this idea was pretty much Hitler’s religion.

From: http://www.anointedlinks.com/real_jesus.html

“So what race was Jesus? Hitler claimed that Jesus was of Celtic ancestry because there was a Roman garrison at Nazareth and he claimed that Jesus was sired by a Roman solider and was not even Jewish! I don’t think so...”

The Bible says that the Holy Spirit is responsible. The "power of the Highest" overshadowed her and she conceived Jesus. (This also shows that the Holy Ghost is God.)

It's one thing to blaspheme Jesus Christ. It is quite another matter to blaspheme the Holy Ghost by attributing His miraculous work in the birth of Christ to rape by a Roman soldier. That is an unforgivable sin. (Mark 3:28-30)

There is a persistent rumor that this extravagant epic is actually about mohatmutt's life...

I read another article a few days ago about this movie and, curious about the Roman-raped-Mary angle, looked into it. I found that the rumor starts with the koran's depiction of the immaculate conception where a man appears before Mary (the Bible depicts this incident as an angel appearing before Mary). It has been speculated that Mohammed had heard the story of Jesus and was just recounting it the best he could, in a chinese-telephone kind of way. Somehow this story out of the koran has been morphed into a Roman raping Mary. Not surprising since non-Christians are used to twisting the Bible to justify their agendas. It's actually refreshing to see that they're making an effort to misquote the koran. I think it will be great fun to point out to the muslims how the makers of this movie have blasphemed their holy book.

That's not just wrong, it's stupid.

Roman soldiery didn't go around raping people at random. That kind of action was restricted to wars and campaigns, specifically to beatdowns that liberal KGB types like to call "normalization".

Judaea in 1 B.C. (or 4 B.C., or whichever year you like) was governed by a Roman ally and client prince in Herod and therefore would not have been subject to the kind of rocks and shoals Verhoeven is daydreaming about.

Intellectual onanism.
