the story of Mary Magdalene is always said to be that that of a subordinate woman,
a saved prostitute.
yet another Magdalene story is emerging.. the apostle of the apostles....." the woman who knows all" the Gnostic gospels to Jesus, Mary and Jesus were lovers..... and spiritual partners.. and she may have borune his a child.... she may not have been a Jewish woman
but could have come from Ethiopia a land with its own cult of itinerant priestesses who traveled as far as Egypt... and Israel to preach...

to those that reject this brief summery of the book out right.. here is a short extract from
page...243.. check it yourself...

.those of use who have been passionate believers know the pain of disillusionment, which ia why so many take up another religion, or join a norther sect, such natural acolytes become
serial-believers....in an almost endless cycle of falling in love with one creed or another,
only to divorce it sooner or later on the grounds of (mental cruelty).... the desire to believe
and to belonging...is often greater that the regard for OBJECTIVITY....
after years of making god in our own image....!!!... perhaps.....it is appropriate to allow him/her....to return the favor ......but.....this time from, inside-out..
