If the King James Bible and The Vatican insist she was a whore, chances are pretty good she was just an ordinary woman seeking equality in an unequal society.

New Star-Studded Movie Aims To Tell Mary Magdalene’s Story

It’s the story of Jesus — from a woman’s perspective.

Quote:
In the trailer, she’s shown speaking privately to Jesus (played by Joaquin Phoenix) and even conducting baptisms for women. She’s looked upon with jealousy and confusion by one of Jesus’ apostles, Peter.

“It’s not right that he has raised you up to lead us,” Peter, played Chiwetel Ejiofor, says in the trailer.

I've never believed the Magdalene libel, but then, there is much of the Bible that is based up virulent patrimony and deep and abiding misogyny. I am biased toward believing that the scurrilous claims made against Mary M. were instigated out of jealousy - as none are evidenced in the Bible itself - and the Counsel of Nicea was adamant in excising any traditions that didn't adhere to their androcentric belief systems.

Chalk me up as believing the whole yarn is nothing more than a collection of politically inspired myths. From its inception, the Christian faith served the same purpose that FOX News serves today.
