Re: On Determining the 'Secret' Homosexuality of Scholars

And speaking of shame - to reemphasize once again - traditionally FEW acknowledged they were involved in a mystery cult and FEW acknowledged their engaged in 'shameful' sex acts. Hence their interconnection (i.e. Bulgar and bugger). It's not that gays are more disposed to joining mystery cults or di...

Re: On Determining the 'Secret' Homosexuality of Scholars

What would you argue 'shame' references in the sentence if not nakedness? Also a new update on the anti-gay MP present at the gay orgy - https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/articl ... laims.html

Re: On Determining the 'Secret' Homosexuality of Scholars

But wet Tshirt contests are antithetical to early Christianity. Innocent nudity not so. I thought you were the Thomas guy: His disciples said, "When will you appear to us, and when will we see you?" Jesus said, "When you strip without being ashamed, and you take your clothes and put them under your ...

Re: On Determining the 'Secret' Homosexuality of Scholars

It's an open question whether individuals were baptized naked. Hard to know for sure. But if clothing was a sign of Adam's sinfulness then a return to nudity would symbolize restored purity wouldn't it? One of the principles of modern nudism.

Re: On Determining the 'Secret' Homosexuality of Scholars

And BECAUSE sexuality is mysterious (other than Jeffery Epstein and his houseguests who apparently used to have sex out in the open in front of everyone) you never know who is a pervert, who is monogamous, who is homosexual, who is straight. Barring actual evidence, you simply don't know who in scho...

Re: On Determining the 'Secret' Homosexuality of Scholars

I've said this time and again. Sex is like the mysteries and the mysteries were sexual. You see that in the Gospel of Philip. You see that in the Patristic assault against the 'false gnostics.' You see the sexualized nature of the mysteries in the Catholic and Anglican rites. The Protestants de-myst...

On Determining the 'Secret' Homosexuality of Scholars

The idea is of course that Morton Smith is determined to be gay even though there is no positive evidence for this proposition. My question, if another scholar who is married or professes his opposition to homosexuality, discovers a 'gay' document pertaining to homosexuality in the early Church at s...

Re: The Thrasyllan edition of Plato and the core Christian canon.

This also might explain why the Church Fathers like Eusebius were able to have only tacit acceptance or ambivalence for certain documents that were placed after the Pauline epistles i.e. 2 Peter etc
