The Cartoon Adaptation of Crash

Allegedly the Da Vinci Code movie can’t even stir up enough interest in the viewer to bore them thrillingly like other classic bad books to bad movie adaptations like Battlefield Earth. But a few months ago, Jimlad asked in a comment what evidence, if any, was there in the Bible to claim that Jesus wasn’t married.

Now there is actually no evidence whatsoever for Jesus having been married but there is actually a strong biblical argument against it. This isn’t an argument that relies on what we know about Jesus’ culture of the time. Instead, Paul implicitly states that Jesus wasn’t married in the first letter he wrote to the church in the city of Corinth. See Paul is arguing that he has a right to get married, a right that he chooses not to take advantage of for his own personal reasons. But to support his case he seeks precedent and reminds his readers that Peter and other leaders of the church are married. He writes:

Don’t we have the right to take a believing wife along with us, as do the other apostles and the Lord’s brothers and Cephas?

How pointless this argument would be if Jesus had been married. If that had been the case, Paul, Peter and Pope Benedict XVI would all be free without question to shack up with “a believing” woman whenever they found the right one. So, there you have it. The Bible does say that Jesus wasn’t married. Its just it says it by not saying it.

Since the Da Vinci Code seems to suck ass as a movie, here are three to pass the time with:

A beautiful performance of Night Zombies by Sufjan Stevens.

The hilarious Icelandic Eurovision parody Silvia Night getting other people’s feathers ruffled as she racially insults, swears and assaults Greek journalists. I love her more than God loves her. Which is a lot.

Finally, the greatest teen story ever told. Comedy gold.

Your Correspondent, Never really understood this in the first place.

    Silvia Night’s homepage (Silvia Night International Superstar) might just be the best I’ve ever seen. Her News section is full of statements like “Latvia graced with Silvia’s presence” and “Silvia hopes to enjoy her European tour as much as everyone will enjoy seeing her live”.

    And the FAQ section just has a magic 8 ball!

    Thank you.

    P.S. I love your new header. It’s so deep, writing across the lines instead of between them. Zoomtard refuses to fit the rules.

    Very good.
