    The song of Mary is the oldest Advent hymn. It is also the most passionate, the wildest, and one might almost say the most revolutionary Advent hymn that has ever been sung. This is not the gentle, tender, dreamy Mary as we often see her portrayed in paintings. This passionate, carried away, proud, enthusiastic. There is none of the sweet, wistful, or even playful tone of many of our Christmas carols, but instead a hard, strong, relentless hymn about the toppling of the thrones and the humiliation of the lords of this world, about the power of God and...

    A Catholic nun in Spain has caused outrage after she suggested that the Virgin Mary may not have been a virgin after all. The controversial Dominican nun invited the ire of the Catholic Church who responded to her statements in anger. Sister Lucia Caram was speaking on a talk show over the weekend when she let slip her belief that contradicts one of the key pillars of her faith. “I think that Mary was in love with Joseph and that they were a normal couple, and the normal thing is to have sex,” Caram told Risto Mejideon during Sunday’s Chester...

    A leading Egyptian cleric irked his Christian compatriots when he said on television that the Islamic figure Muhammed would marry the Virgin Mary in heaven.

There are verses in the Quran that suggest that in heaven Muhammed will marry the Virgin Mary, the mother of Jesus peace...

    And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.  For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.  And this shall be a sign unto you; ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

    The Washington Post gave audience to Ruth Everhart who said that the Virgin Mary, the mother of Jesus, offended her. Why? Well her reason for being offended started off as a claim that the virgin part about Mary was offensive because rape victims could no longer obtain virgin status. But then, if you read further into her statements, the offended lashes out at the church and the "patriarchs" for, as she alleged, making "vaginas inherently dirty" and says that attempting to protect ones virginity until marriage won't work and was what she called, "the idol of sexual purity." This woman...

    Thomas D. Williams, Ph.D.December 18, 2016 This year the Left’s annual War on Christmas has taken a bizarre turn with a Washington Post op-ed claiming that the Virgin Mary’s purity is offensive to victims of rape. In an article titled, “Our culture of purity celebrates the Virgin Mary. As a rape victim, that hurts me,” Ruth Everhart explains that especially in the Advent lead-up to Christmas, Mary becomes a problem for many Christians because of her pristine purity. Mary “set an impossibly high bar,” Everhart writes. “Now the rest of us are stuck trying to be both a virgin and...

    French Town Told Park's Virgin Mary Statue Must Go The Virgin Mary, Jesus and Joseph are widely represented in European public art. A French town has been told it must take down its statue of the Virgin Mary to comply with a national ban on religious symbols in public spaces, the town's mayor said on Saturday. A court has given the town of Publier, in eastern France, three months to remove the work. If it fails to do so, it will be fined €100 (Ł80; $105) a day. Mayor Gaston Lacroix said he will try to relocate the marble statue...

    The totally reconstructed, brand-new Estonian National Museum opened on September 28 with a blasphemous attack on Mary, the Mother of God. Here’s what’s happening, according to several news outlets: “Visitors at Estonian National Museum [are] offered to kick Virgin Mary’s image” - - and it’s definitely true. I’ve verified it. “The National Museum which opened in Estonia in the presence of President Toomas Hendrik Ilves last week, is offering its visitors to kick one of the exhibits, an interactive image of Virgin Mary, causing the picture to fall into pieces.” [my emphasis] The display is “a depiction of Virgin Mary...

    One civilization's trash is another civilization's treasure. A ship in Israel's Caesarea Harbor was filled with bronze statues headed for recycling when it sank about 1,600 years ago. Now, thanks to a chance discovery by a pair of divers, archaeologists have salvaged a haul of statuary fragments, figurines and coins from the seafloor. The coins found in the wreckage date to the mid-300s A.D. Some show Constantine, who ruled the Western Roman Empire from A.D. 312-324, and who unified the Eastern and Western Roman Empire in A.D. 324; he ruled both until his death in A.D. 337. Other coins show...

    Perpetual virginity 3/9/2016 Question: I am a lifelong and devout Catholic and have always considered Mary to be ever virgin. But recently, I read in my Bible that Joseph had no relations with Mary “before” she bore a son (Mt 1:25). Now, I wonder if our belief does not contradict the Bible.— Eugene DeClue, Festus, Missouri Answer: The Greek word “heos,” which your citation renders “before,” is more accurately translated “until,” which can be ambiguous without a wider context of time. It is true, in English, the usual sense of “until” is that I am doing or not doing something...
  • Giant Virgin Mary Statue to be Erected Near Her Turkish Abode

    The municipality of Selcuk, a town in western Turkey where Virgin Mary is believed to have spent her last days, plans to erect a giant statue dedicated to her in the fashion of the notable statue in Brazil depicting her son. Virgin Mary House, a stone structure on the outskirts of Bulbul Mountain, is a popular spot among Christian pilgrims since its discovery in the 19th century. Looking to boost faith tourism revenues, Selcuk Mayor Zeynel Bakici said they would erect "a splendid statue" depicting the sacred figure, the same day he announced they were seeking to host an international...

    "The satanists all had blood on their hands" OKLAHOMA CITY ( - On Christmas Eve, the Oklahoma satanists who planned to pour blood on a staute of the Blessed Virgin in front of St. Joseph's Old Cathedral were met with a counter-protest: a group of Catholics with Rosaries and Gregorian chant bearing a statue of Our Lady on a litre (pictured above). Many of the Catholics represented the traditional Catholic international group Tradition, Family and Property (TFP). The leader of the Satanic Church of Ahriman, Adam Daniels, a registered sex offender who has used the alias "Adam Smith," obtained a...

    MARIETTA, GA (CBS46) - What may seem like a foggy window at a catholic church in Marietta is drawing dozens of people from all over Georgia and even moving some to tears. Many believers say it’s the image of the Virgin Mary. We spoke to the Priest at Transfiguration Catholic Church who told us the silhouette is most noticeable during sunny days. He believes it isn’t damaged glass and he says it’s not a doctored image. "There are a lot of people that may think it's a stain or condensation. They ask if I drew it," says Father Bernardo Molina....

    Washington D.C., Dec 23, 2015 / 06:02 pm (CNA).- Our Lady. Blessed Mother. Virgin Mary. Queen of Peace. Theotokos. Handmaid of the Lord. Mother Mary. These are just some of the titles used to describe the young woman to whom an angel appeared some 2,000 years ago with the message that she would conceive and bear the Savior of the World. Mary has very few recorded words in the New Testament, but her worldwide devotion spans across time, cultures and even religions. In a Nov. 8 feature for National Geographic, “How the Virgin Mary Became the World’s Most Powerful Woman,”...

    A local Satanist will be protesting in front of a downtown Oklahoma City church on Christmas Eve. Adam Daniels said he plans to pour costume blood over a Virgin Mary statue that has been treated "with sulfur powder and ash," outside St. Joseph’s Old Cathedral, 307 NW 4. Prayers will also be said to the statue. The display will be confined to the sidewalk and will not block any church entrances, according to the permit obtained by Daniels. The permit also requires the group to clean up the display after the event and ensure no costume blood is left on...

    Editor's note: This column was co-authored by Tim Graham. When Ted Turner was running CNN back in 1991, he banned the use of the word "foreign" on air. In a memo to employees, he made a threat to fine employees with a forced donation to UNICEF. To avoid offense, they were told they should use the word "international" instead because it "promotes a sense of unity." Today, this is Jeff Zucker's CNN, and unity be damned. Offending the audience is part of the ratings gambit. On Dec. 13, as many Christians celebrated the third Sunday of Advent and rejoiced over...
