UK: Imaginary zombie carpenter may have been a woman, says feminist loonie
Dr Cornwall, of Manchester University’s Lincoln Theological Institute, describes herself on her blog as specialising in: “Research and writing in feminist theology, sexuality, gender, embodiment, ethics and other fun things like that.”
In her paper “Intersex & Ontology, A Response to The Church, Women Bishops and Provision”, she argues that it is not possible to know “with any certainty” that Jesus did not suffer from an intersex condition, with both male and female organs.
In an extraordinary paper she says: “It is not possible to assert with any degree of certainty that Jesus was male as we now define maleness.”
In related news, Doctor Reginald Finch-Oh-My-Head-Hurts-Pottington of the University of East Anglia reports that Mr Pickwick was a space alien from Jupiter, and Hercule Poirot is actually a fish.
