Note 'in her sixth month' and 'How is this to be, since I am having no intercourse with a man?'Luke, Chapter 1, verses 26-38 (NWT):
26 In her sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent forth from God to a city of Gal´i·lee named Nazareth, 27 to a virgin promised in marriage to a man named Joseph of David’s house; and the name of the virgin was Mary. 28 And when he went in before her he said: “Good day, highly favored one, Jehovah is with you.”
34 But Mary said to the angel: “How is this to be, since I am having no intercourse with a man?”
So that means six months into her pregnancy, and secondly, how was it possible when she wasn't sleeping with Joseph, because Joseph was clearly the upstanding awesome dude that he was and would dare not coerce the hottest chick in the world to sleep with him.
Anti-rape advocates of America should take God to court.
this version seems more accurate (my little finger is telling me that you changed the texts on purpose ...? xP)26 Inthesixth month, the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a town of Galilee called Nazareth,
34 But Mary said to the angel, "How can this be, since I have no relations with a man?"
35 And the angel said to her in reply, "The holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. Therefore the child to be born will be called holy, the Son of God.
wow this was almost as funny as the Zombie Jesus convo in HS... lol. God casted Phoenix Down on his son
I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

So God's basically a rapist with superpowers?
haha! I had this conversation with my bros last year because we were taking art history together! Learning art history is like learning the bible. Practically all the art was about religion.
Yeah I came to the same conclusion during R.E., but then after a bit of deliberation I realised that technically there was no rape. As there was no insertion of a penis or a digit or anything else into any orifice, it wasn't rape. As the wize Saizou said, it was more artificial insemination by way of magical juju. Still if I were in the situation and I had pregnancy induced in me without even getting a good sexing, I'd be fucking pissed.
