    You know how they call the mother of Jesus, the Virgin Mary. Is this to say that she remained a virgin all her life? As in, Jesus never had any siblings and Joseph/Mary had a somewhat platonic marriage?

    No no I'm being serious I don't mean to insult - I could have made comment like "Joseph never got any" but I didn't - I'm actually curious as to whether or not she remained virginal all her life.

    No she got it on with Joseph eventually and had other kids, it's because when she was a virgin when she conceived Jesus

    The Catholics have a very..very..odd view on the matter, so I would ignore that.

    However, no she had other children, James(Jesus's brother) for one.

    Jesus had brothers born of Mary.

    So, unless God impregnated her for these guys too, it's safe to say she wasn't always the Virgin Mary.

    Mary was only a virgin until Jesus. The angel story is essentially just an elaborate lie you tell your parents so they don't assume you're a little whore.

    I don't know what the theological basis for the perpetual virginity of Mary is, so at this point I cannot accept it

    The Bible clearly states she had other children.

    Did she have a child?

    Then she probably wasn't a virgin.

    Well just on a theological basis (that is, ignoring the accuracy, or rather lack thereof, of Christian doctrine), I'm fairly certain James was supposed to be Jesus' younger brother so no - or at least that's the C of E position, I think the Catholic interpretation is somewhat different. I'm not particularly religious so I might be incorrect.

    No, there was just someone around back then, who was probably as good as Dynamo or something, who used Jesus as his stage name.
