Probably not in the Bible but...
Before Jesus took over John's ministry what did people think of the fact that a man in his upper 20s wasn't married and had no children? Wouldn't that have been exceedingly rare at the time?

Not if Jesus was gay.

Why do you apply base human sexual desires to the Messiah ? Everything about his life demonstrates his most passionate desires are spiritual, not physical.

In Greek society, and in many others, there was no distinction between gay and straight. People simply did what they did. There were many Greeks and others in the region at that time, so most wouldn't think a thing about it. In Jewish society however, a man was expected to be married, so Jesus' own people would've thought his single status as strange. They probably didn't label him as gay, but merely thought him unusual. And, they had plenty of reasons to think him unusual because since he was 12 he was bucking the authority of the establishment.

It would not necessarily have been unusual in 1st Century Palestine to be single under 30. The tendency was for older guys, who had become established in their professions to then take younger wives, rather than the modern practice of films (usually) marrying some if about their same age.

Another example of this is the deeply repressed and sexually angry/alienated and lashing out apostle Paul.

He was undoubtedly bi and gender fluid. Not only was he single but he cohabited with twelve guys and at least one woman

On a more serious note, Mitchell, Jesus was both human and divine. A necessary theological element is that he had the same human desires and experiences as the rest of us. This is a point Kazantsakis among other have made.

I think Wyatt is saying "what happens in celibate religious communities stays in celibate religious communities at least until it breaks on the front page of the Boston Globe and leads to many millions of dollars of settlements for sex abuse globally"

Ogion, he may well have had human desires of a sexual nature, but he had a divine ability to control those desires. Fortuitously I have no such control. Was it Aquinas who famously asked in prayer for God to grant him the "gift of celibacy, but just not yet" ?

I am retiring from Trolling
I will henceforth focus my efforts on promoting games, offering opinions on actual issues and an occasional contribution that may be amusing. My goal was never to see the forum overrun with nonsense. Sadly its becoming unreadable and the threads are so abundant that trolling is now all thats happening. Sorry webdip for ushering in this era.

Completely unrelated thought
You can easily walk out the door and abandon your life, start over and become a new person. But can you do the same to your mindset? Can you drop all previous prejudices/perspectives/opinions, (but not facts) and build a new world view? A new model for interacting with reality?

About those earth rays..
Years ago, I started a discussion (and an infrequently used meme) about how I used to have severe headaches as a small child until a small metal device that my parents can't describe very well was buried in the frontyard and my headaches disappeared overnight. My parents cited mythical earth rays as the cause of the problem. The brilliant minds of webdip saw a placebo effect as the only possible answer. I found another possible explanation and would like your thoughts.

Barron von Trump just got admitted...
to middle school at St. Andrews Episcopal in DC. "Melania Trump cited the school’s diversity and academics as the reason behind the selection"
This was reported by Time Magazine.

Is anyone here aware of what kind of diversity a school with 38k tuition has? Even CAPT_Brad can't afford that!
