An announcement that’s sure to bum out progressives everywhere is that the much ballyhooed ancient papyrus which PROOOOOOOOOOVED that Jesus had a wife isn’t actually…uhm…real.
You might recall that two years ago, Harvard professor Karen King announced that an ancient papyrus mentioned that Jesus had a wife. Hey, it was written in some old type language on a piece on a piece of dirty cloth and it said something that many people wanted to believe so therefore it had to be true.
Another piece of text stated that Mary (presumably Magdalen) was “worthy.”
Hmmm. Kinda’ interesting that an ancient scribbler seemed very concerned with clarifying issues that 21st century progressives cared so much about.
