Was Fictional jesus Created Through Hebephilia Rape, with the Coercion of Consent, Through Intimidation, Power Differentials and Stockholm Syndrome? Was the Religion of christianity Founded on Rape?

First, these facts must be established:

Over a Billion Christians Believe that the holy spirit (aka ghost) is a Person and the Third Person of the “godhead.”

In the New Testament, Luke 1:26-38

~The angel,Gabriel was sent to inform Mary of god’s decision:

29 Mary was greatly troubled at his words

30 the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid,

~It seems that Mary could sense danger. Why would she be troubled and afraid of her god’s holy angel  The stage of fear and intimidation is set. Mary’s frame of mind is revealed.

31 You WILL conceive and give birth to a son,

~All jews knew that if they went against yahweh, he killed them.

~Yahweh ruthlessly murders over 25 million people in over 130 OT passages:

~Consent is not assumed: It is never acceptable to assume that consent is given. Each one of us is responsible for making sure we have consent in every sexual situation. If you are unsure, it is important to clarify what your partner is feeling about the sexual situation. Consent can never simply be assumed.

35 The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come on you,

~This sounds pornographic! A ghost will impregnate Mary?

38 “I am the Lord’s servant,” Mary answered. “May your word to me be fulfilled.”

~Mary says that she is a SLAVE! She has no choice. This is Rape with the Coercion of Consent, Through Intimidation, and Power Differentials.

Rape: A sexual act of power and control that uses physical force, intimidation, coercion, threats and/or injury without the consent of the individual.

Coercion: A tactic used by perpetrators to intimidate, trick, or force someone to have sex with him/her without physical force. Perpetrators use many forms of coercion, threats, and manipulation to rape.

Intimidation: Intimidation is the act in which one individual instills fear in another individual or group. Individuals known to intimidate include: bosses, law enforcement officers, bullies at school or work, and even individuals you may feel are your friends. Sexual assailants often use intimidation to achieve sexual contact or sexual intercourse with their victims.

Power differentials: When one person holds a great deal of power over another person (i.e., boss/employee or professor/student) it is more difficult to be sure that this difference of power is not influencing any sexual interactions between these two people.

The issue involved is power and control. Coercion is a way of forcing someone to do something that s/he clearly does not want to do.

~Matthew 1:18&20

18  (Mary & Joseph) …before they came together, she was found to be pregnant through the Holy Spirit. 

~
”Came together?” More sexual innuendo.

20 angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said…what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. 

~So the “holy spirit, aka holy ghost” was selected to do the evil deed. This is a decision of the bible writers to make yahweh human and more appealing and relate-able without openly stating that sex was involved. Why would this be needed:“The Holy Spirit will come on you?” Why couldn’t yahweh just “snap his fingers” (like he made the universe) and have Mary impregnated?

Over a Billion Christians Believe that the holy spirit (aka ghost) is a Person and the Third Person of the “godhead.”

***So, the christian person, called the holy spirit (aka ghost), raped Mary to give birth to jesus.

See the full text and context of Luke 1:26-38 and Matthew 1:18-24 below:

Luke 1:26-38

New International Version (NIV)

The Birth of Jesus Foretold

26 In the sixth month of Elizabeth’s pregnancy, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, 

27 to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. 

28 The angel went to her and said, “Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you.”

29 Mary was greatly troubled at his words

and wondered what kind of greeting this might be. 

30 But the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, 

Mary; you have found favor with God. 

31 You will conceive and give birth to a son,

and you are to call him Jesus. 

32 He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, 

33 and he will reign over Jacob’s descendants forever; his kingdom will never end.”

34 “How will this be,” Mary asked the angel, “since I am a virgin?”

35 The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come on you, 

and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be calledthe Son of God. 

36 Even Elizabeth your relative is going to have a child in her old age, and she who was said to be unable to conceive is in her sixth month.

37 For no word from God will ever fail.”

38 “I am the Lord’s servant,” Mary answered. “May your word to me be fulfilled.”

Then the angel left her.

Matthew 1:18-24

New International Version (NIV)

Joseph Accepts Jesus as His Son

18 This is how the birth of Jesus the Messiah came about: His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be pregnant through the Holy Spirit. 

19 Because Joseph her husband was faithful to the law, and yet did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly.

20 But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. 

21 She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus,because he will save his people from their sins.”

22 All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet:

23 “The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel”(which means “God with us”).

24 When Joseph woke up, he did what the angel of the Lord had commanded him and took Mary home as his wife.

The age of Mary and Joseph

No one really knows for sure. A lot of people just guess or make up random ages. Ask 20 different people and you will get many different answers. A lot of artwork portrays Joseph and Mary as roughly the same age, but this is most likely untrue. 

In those days, life expectancy was much shorter due to a variety of reasons (diet, disease, healthcare, hard labour, etc) so girls were married and had children at younger ages than they do today.

It’s likely that Mary was just a teenager, since that was the custom of the day. Joseph’s age is not indicated but circumstantial evidence can lead us to conclude that he was much older.

For example, the word generation is defined as the length of time from a man’s birth to the birth of his first child. In the Bible this averaged out to be about 40 years, suggesting that a man would normally be in his mid to late thirties at the time of his marriage.

Also, a Jewish man had to pay the girl’s father a negotiated “bride price” before taking her, and show that he could provide for her and the family they’d have with a stable income and a suitable house for them to live in. It would normally take years after learning a trade for a man to become financially prepared for marriage.

According to some accounts, Mary was around 12-14 years when she was married to Joseph. It doesn’t appear as if it was her choice. More like she was given to him. Joseph himself was thought to be much more elderly. Some guess he was in his forties, while some Roman Catholics say that he was as old as 90. It is likely that they say this to remove any doubt that Joseph may actually have been the father of Jesus. 

Regardless, it is unclear. It seems however that Joesph was a much older man and that Mary was just hitting puberty.
So all things considered it seems likely that Joseph would have been much older than Mary.

~Hebephilia

Hebephilia is defined as a primary or exclusive sexual interest in pubescent individuals aged approximately 11–14 years. Hebephilia differs from ephebophilia, which refers to the sexual preference for individuals in later adolescence, and from pedophilia, which refers to the sexual preference for prepubescent children.

Consent & Coercion

Consent is when someone agrees, gives permission or says yes to sexual activity with someone else. At the heart of consent is the idea that every person, man or woman, has a right to personal sovereignty – not to be acted upon by someone else in a sexual manner unless he or she gives clear permission to do so. It is the responsibility of the person initiating the sexual activity to get this permission. Absence of clear permission means you can’t touch someone, not that you can.

Coercion is a tactic used by perpetrators to intimidate, trick, or force someone to have sex with him/her without physical force. Perpetrators use many forms of coercion, threats, and manipulation to rape including alcohol and drugs.

Consent vs. Coercion

Consent is when someone agrees, gives permission or says yes to sexual activity with someone else. It is always freely given and both people in a sexual situation must feel that s/he is able to say “yes” or “no” at any point during sexual activity.

Power differentials: When one person holds a great deal of power over another person (i.e., boss/employee or professor/student) it is more difficult to be sure that this difference of power is not influencing any sexual interactions between these two people.

Consent is not assumed: It is never acceptable to assume that consent is given. Each one of us is responsible for making sure we have consent in every sexual situation. If you are unsure, it is important to clarify what your partner is feeling about the sexual situation. Consent can never simply be assumed.

Coercion is a tactic used by perpetrators to intimidate, trick or force someone to have sex with him or her without physical force.

The issue involved is power and control. Coercion is a way of forcing someone to do something that s/he clearly does not want to do. It is a way to control him or her.

Rape:

Rape is a sexual act of power and control that uses physical force, intimidation, coercion, threats and/or injury without the consent of the individual.

Sexual assault is sexual contact that is forced, coerced, or is a direct result of intimidation. Although rape is the most reported form of sexual assault it is not by any means the only action that constitutes sexual assault.

image

Forced:

1. If an individual forecably touches your genitals, your breasts, or rear end even after you said, “No,” that is sexual assault. 2. The same is true of sexual intercourse or penetration of any form. 3. If you did not give consent, it is sexual assault. 4. If weapons such as guns or knives are used in rape and/or sexual contact. 5. If your attacker has a partner, who aids them in raping you or achieving sexual contact. 6. If you are drugged (date rape drugs) via alcohol or in any other way rendered unconscious prior to rape or any other unwanted sexual contact.

Coercion: If an individual in authority claims he/she will take actions against you unless you allow unwanted sexual contact or sexual intercourse. For instance, a teacher threatens to fail you in their class or give you a bad grade unless you have sexually intercourse with them or allow them to touch you in a sexual manner. Individuals in authority include but not limited to: your boss, your parent(s), teachers, principals, law enforcement officers and doctors.

Intimidation: Intimidation is the act in which one individual instills fear in another individual or group. Individuals known to intimidate include: bosses, law enforcement officiers, bullies at school or work, and even individuals you may feel are your friends. Sexual assailants often use intimidation to achieve sexual contact or sexual intercourse with their victims. Some intimidating threats used by these offenders include but are not limited to:

1. Threatening bodily harm or death of you or persons close to you. 2. Release of personal information or photographs that may harm you mentally or emotionally. 3. Release of false information that may result in job loss or other occurences detromental to your livelihood.

Actions Constituting Sexual Assault Sexual contact without consent is sexual assault. Outside of rape, sexual contact is outlined as touching, fondling, or grazing another person’s genitals or breasts without acquiring consent. Sexual contact is also considered touching, fondling, or grazing any part of another individual’s body with your own genitals or breasts without consent. Consent constitutes a fully functional adult giving approval for sexual contact. Coersion, intimidation, or forcing sexual contact is not consentual and is considered sexual assault.

Who Cannot Consent to Sexual Contact Individuals younger than 16 years of age cannot legally consent to sexual contact. An individual who has sexual contact of any kind with a child under the age of 16, even if they too are under this consent age, are guilty of sexual assault. Individuals considered by law to be adults who have sexual contact with children under 16 will also face statutory rape, child molestation, or other serious charges. By law penetration is not limited to sexual intercourse. Penetration of any kind can constitute sexual assault; it can also constitute rape.

Incapacitated individuals cannot consent to sexual contact. Incapacitated applies to more than individuals with physical or mental disabilities. Individuals, who are rendered unconscious due to alcohol consumption or drug usage are also considered incapacitated. Any individual facilitating any form of sexual contact with incapacitated individuals is guilty of sexual assault.

Sexual assault

Is commonly defined as any sex act against someone’s will, without consent, or when someone is unable to freely give consent. In most sexual assaults, no weapon is used except for force. Force can include the use of verbal, physical or emotional pressure or manipulation, substances, threats, coercion and/or the use of alcohol or other drugs. It is not a sexual act; it is a violent crime. It is also called sexual violence.

Rape is a particular type of sexual assault. The FBI updated the definition of rape in January 2012, and it reads “The penetration, no matter how slight, of the vagina or anus with any body part or object, or oral penetration by a sex organ of another person, without the consent of the victim.”

Rape and attempted rape are forms of sexual assault, but sexual assault also includes other completed or attempted attacks involving unwanted sexual contact, such as touching, groping, and other forms of contact.

Force

In most sexual assaults, no weapon is used except for force. Force can include, but is not limited to: the use of verbal, physical or emotional pressure or manipulation, alcohol and drugs, threats, blackmail, intimidation, abuse of power, or coercion. A person can not freely give consent if they are unconscious, impaired by alcohol or drugs, underage, scared, forced, bound/gagged, intimidated, coerced, mentally impaired, beaten, threatened, isolated, and/or physically impaired.

Who experiences sexual violence?

Sexual violence does not discriminate and it is never the victim’s/survivor’s fault.

Sexual violence is often used as a way to hurt, humiliate or gain control over someone else.

These actions may be committed by boyfriends, girlfriends, friends, acquaintances, family, lovers, partners, and strangers. Sexual assault and rape affect people of all ages, races, genders, sexualities, and abilities.The fact that someone has been intimate with a partner in the past does not mean he/she/ze consents to any/all future sexual activity with that partner.

Even though sexual assault is often associated with women, men and children of all ages also experience unwanted sexual contact. People are most at risk between 12-34 years of age, with risk peaking in the late teens.

Many survivors of sexual assault suffer in silence, never reporting it to the police. This happens for many different reasons, including feelings of shame, guilt, or fear of reprisal from their attacker. Many people sexually assaulted as children do not tell anyone or get help until they are adults. Many offenders never go to jail. But sexual assault is an illegal act that is punishable through the criminal justice courts and the University’s Grievance Committee.

Deciding to tell someone about the assault might be hard, but is also can be empowering. If you come forward, you will be believed.

Many people who have unwanted sexual experiences struggle to label them as “sexual assault” or “rape” because of lack of education about these words, their definitions, and the myths and facts about them in our society. While we can give you the official (and legal) definitions and we will believe your story, only you can know what you experienced. A great website which explains sexual assault and rape can be found here.

 “Consent means words or actions demonstrating a knowing and voluntary agreement to engage in mutually agreed upon sexual activity. Consent cannot be obtained by force, by ignoring or acting in spite of the objections of another, or by taking advantage of the incapacitation of another. In the case of drugs, alcohol, or other impairing substances, incapacitation is determined by how the person’s decision-making ability is affected and the ability of the person to make informed judgments. The relevant standard for review is whether the person alleged to have engaged in sexual misconduct knew, or a sober, reasonable person in the same position should have known, that the Complainant was incapacitated.”

More commonly, consent is an expressed agreement by both partners to engage in sexual contact of any kind. Consent is not implied if someone does not say “no.” The best way to make sure you are giving and receiving active consent with your partner(s) is to ask before any sexual contact occurs, every time you want sexual contact, and be clear about what you want. If you can’t get a clear answer to your ask for contact, STOP.

“…against someone’s will” implies that one partner said “no” to a sexual act, or gave another verbal or nonverbal indication such as pushing away or looking away, that indicated that such sexual contact was unwanted.

“…without consent” implies that one partner did not agree—in other words did not say “yes” to a sexual act. It is mandatory that, in any sexual situation, both partners must explicitly agree to have sexual contact of any kind. Questions regarding such contact must be asked and answers. If either partner is forced in any way, including the use of verbal, physical, or emotional pressure or manipulation, substances, threats or coercion, consent cannot be given.

“…when someone is unable to freely give consent” implies that an individual has had either the right or the ability to freely give consent taken away by another person or circumstances.

This includes, but is not limited to, situations where someone is…

impaired by alcohol or drugs

passed out

high

scared

intimidated

threatened

forced

coerced

isolated

underage

mentally impaired

bound/gagged

physically impaired

use of a weapon

beaten

…or any other situation where an individual feels that she/he/ze will not have control over the situation or that her/his/hir wishes will not be heard.

By freely giving and getting consent, not only are you respecting your partner, you are following the law and UNC Policy.

Stockholm Syndrome

Stockholm syndrome, or capture-bonding, is a psychological phenomenon in which hostages express empathy, sympathy and have positive feelings towards their captors, sometimes to the point of defending them. These feelings are generally considered irrational in light of the danger or risk endured by the victims, who essentially mistake a lack of abuse from their captors for an act of kindness.

The FBI’s Hostage Barricade Database System shows that roughly 27% of victims show evidence of Stockholm Syndrome.

Stockholm syndrome can be seen as a form of traumatic bonding, which does not necessarily require a hostage scenario, but which describes “strong emotional ties that develop between two persons where one person intermittently harasses, beats, threatens, abuses, or intimidates the other.”

One commonly used hypothesis to explain the effect of Stockholm Syndrome is based on Freudian theory. It suggests that the bonding is the individual’s response to trauma in becoming a victim. Identifying with the aggressor is one way that the ego defends itself. When a victim believes the same values as the aggressor, they no longer become a threat. 

Battered-person syndrome is an example of activating the capture-bonding psychological mechanism, as are military basic training and fraternity bonding byhazing.

The Orgin of Stockholm Syndrome

In 1973, two men entered the Kreditbanken bank in Stockholm, Sweden, intending to rob it. When police entered the bank, the robbers shot them, and a hostage situation ensued. For six days, the robbers held four people at gunpoint, locked in a bank vault, sometimes strapped with explosives and other times forced to put nooses around their own necks. When the police tried to rescue the hostages, the hostages fought them off, defending their captors and blaming the police. One of the freed hostages set up a fund to cover the hostage-takers’ legal defense fees. Thus “Stockholm syndrome” was born, and psychologists everywhere had a name for this classic captor-prisoner phenomenon.

 image

Symptoms of Stockholm Syndrome

In order for Stockholm syndrome to occur in any given situation, at least three traits must be present:

A severely uneven power relationship in which the captor dictates what the prisoner can and cannot do

The threat of death or physical injury to the prisoner at the hands of the captor

A self-preservation instinct on the part of the prisoner

Included in these traits are the prisoner’s belief (correct or incorrect, it doesn’t matter) that he or she cannot escape, which means that survival must occur within the rules set by the all-powerful captor; and the prisoner’s isolation from people not being held by the captors, which prohibits any outside view of the captors from infringing on the psychological processes that lead to Stockholm syndrome.

image

The Stockholm Syndrome Process

In the most basic, generalized way, the Stockholm syndrome process as seen in a kidnapping or hostage situation looks something like this:

In a traumatic and extraordinarily stressful event, a person finds herself held captive by a man who is threatening to kill her if she disobeys him in any way. She may be abused - physically, sexually and/or verbally - and having trouble thinking straight. According to the captor, escape is not an option. She will end up dead. Her family may end up dead, too. Her only chance at survival is obedience.

As time goes on, obedience alone may become less of a sure thing - the captor is under stress as well, and a change in his mood could mean harmful consequences to his prisoner. Figuring out what might set off her captor’s violence so she can avoid those triggers becomes another survival strategy. In this way, she gets to know her captor.

A minor act of kindness on the part of the captor, which can include simply not killing the prisoner yet, positions the captor as the prisoner’s savior, as “ultimately good,” to quote young Anne Frank’s famous characterization of the Nazis who ultimately led to her death. In the traumatic, life-threatening circumstances in which the prisoner finds herself, the slightest act of kindness - or the sudden absence of violence - seems a sign of friendship in an otherwise hostile, terrifying world, and the prisoner clings to it for dear life.

The captor slowly seems less threatening - more an instrument for survival and protection than one of harm. The prisoner undergoes what some call an act of self-delusion: In order to survive psychologically as well as physically - to lessen the unimaginable stress of the situation - the prisoner comes to truly believe that the captor is her friend, that he will not kill her, that in fact they can help each other “get out of this mess.” The people on the outside trying to rescue her seem less like her allies. They are going to hurt this person who is protecting her from harm. The fact that this person is also the source of that potential harm gets buried in the process of self-delusion.

There are similarities between brainwashing and Stockholm syndrome. The two are actually closely related as effects of abnormal power relationships.

Agnes of God

A play by John Pielmeier which tells the story of a novice nun who gives birth and insists that the dead child was the result of a virgin conception. A psychiatrist and the mother superior of the convent clash during the resulting investigation. The title is a pun on the Latin phrase Agnus Dei (Lamb of God).

The play was adapted for a movie in 1985, starring Jane Fonda, Anne Bancroft and Meg Tilly.
