Some said, "Mary conceived by the Holy Spirit." They are in error. They do not know what they are saying. When did a woman ever conceive by a woman? Mary is the virgin whom no power defiled. She is a great anathema to the Hebrews, who are the apostles and apostolic men. -- Gospel of Philip 55:24

I've known that the Holy Ghost was thought of as a feminine princip for years and years, but why the implications of it never occurred to my filthy, filthy mind before reading this heretical counter-argument to the pneumatic conception I'll never know. Cultural conditioning to the epithet of 'God, the Father', I suppose.

There's a debate going on in my country about whether there ought to be a law guaranteeing government funding for the fertilization treatment of single women and female couples, and one of the funny quips from the liberal side of the Church has been that 'Jesus wasn't raised by his biological father, either!' But really, when you look at the convoluted mess of the Holy family, not only did Jesus have two fathers, he had two mothers too. That is one big happy rainbow family.
