"Galatians" is spelled thus . . . seems a shame an ex-Wiccan would have to note that.

Does the fact that words as basic as "woman" in the Bible are left up to interpretation strike you as odd, Barre? Please tell me, what would be a figurative interpretation of the word woman?

Who gives a shit? Go ask a Christian forum, maybe? Why are you picking apart the bible so much? As if the word would give the shitty sentence any more relevance if it were interpreted as literal over figurative.

But anyway, I'm going with literal. Still don't give a shit.

I read it as Jesus being born subjected to the law of the land

oh, and in your religious views, Pantheist is spelled "Pantheist", not "Panthiest".

That reminds me of a joke.

What do they call that piece of insignificant skin attached to the pussy?
