Mandeville, LA – I tweeted this out earlier in response to this woman’s wretched blasphemy.
I shouldn’t be surprised that Satan’s postulants R now in a full on scrum for his diabolical love & attention: Jesus Was a Rape Baby https://t.co/LtjNKa1ZM1 No, he wasn’t: “And Mary said: Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it done to me according to thy word.” #Catholic

Read the whole thing, check that, don’t endanger your soul and drive 1¢ worth of click-bait ad revenue to Medium, the “publisher” of this outrage. Here’s the part sure to bring the rewards of hell upon Sara McDavitt Woods.
It is highly unlikely Jesus was conceived as the result of a youthful romance. Had Mary been prosecuted for an extramarital sexual relationship and convicted of adultery, she, at age 12, would have received a barbaric sentence of execution by stoning. When Joseph learned she was pregnant, he followed the guidance of the Angel Gabriel and mercifully assumed paternal responsibility for Jesus. Mary was not a “wild child” but a girl living in a rigid patriarchal world who was raped by her husband, a soldier, or some other predator. In the Biblical narrative, that predator was God. God the Father “overshadowed” the child bride Mary, impregnating her with his one and only son, the reported savior of the world.
The men who wrote the Bible claimed Mary submitted obediently when she became the Mother of God. That does not mean she was not raped. She was raped because she could not possibly have consented. Consent to impregnation presumes a relationship of equals which cannot possibly be presumed between a 12-year-old girl and an omnipotent Father God. The youngest age of consent in the United States is 16, and an eternal Father God would not pass for an age-gap exception to United States statutory rape laws. In the Biblical narrative, Mary was coerced into submission and obedience by the Angel Gabriel.
Ms. Wood leaves no member of the Heavenly Court out of her screed, so vitriolic and diabolical, Harvey Weinstein deserves better!
Prayers for this outrageous slander and blasphemy hurled at Our Lady, Our Lord, The Holy Ghost, Gabriel The Archangel and God The Father cry out to heaven for vengeance but vengeance is not what our loving Mother asks of us when confronting those who hate her Immaculate Heart and the Divine “fruit of [her] womb, Jesus”. This is our answer.
Most glorious Virgin Mary, Mother of God and our Mother, turn thine eyes in pity upon us, miserable sinners; we are sore afflicted by the many evils that surround us in this life, but especially do we feel our hearts break within us upon hearing the dreadful insults and blasphemies uttered against thee, O Virgin Immaculate. O how these impious sayings offend the infinite Majesty of God and of His only-begotten Son, Jesus Christ!
How they provoke His indignation and give us cause to fear the terrible effects of His vengeance! Would that the sacrifice of our lives might avail to put an end to such outrages and blasphemies; were it so, how gladly we should make it, for we desire, O most holy Mother, to love thee and to honor thee with all our hearts, since this is the will of God. And just because we love thee, we will do all that is in our power to make thee honored and loved by all men. In the meantime do thou, our merciful Mother, the supreme comforter of the afflicted, accept this our act of reparation which we offer thee for ourselves and for all our families, as well as for all who impiously blaspheme thee, not knowing what they say.
Do thou obtain for them from Almighty God the grace of conversion, and thus render more manifest and more glorious thy kindness, thy power and thy great mercy. May they join with us in proclaiming thee blessed among women, the Immaculate Virgin and most compassionate Mother of God.
Our Lady of Fatima, oremus.
