The Immaculate Conception is the Catholic teaching that Mary was conceived in the womb of her mother, Anne, without Original Sin, as a unique gift to her, in preparation for being the Mother of God.

It does NOT refer to the virginal conception of Jesus Christ in the womb of Mary. Only TV land and people not intelligent enough to get their theological facts from sources other than popular films use "Immaculate Conception" to refer to the conception of Christ.

The doctrine of the the Immaculate Conception is based on the assumption of St Augustine's notion of Original Sin, which teaches that all human beings, from the moment of their conception, carry the guilt and stain of the sins of the first human beings. It is from this guilt that Mary is said to have been uniquely preserved.

As this notion of Original Sin isn't accepted by Orthodox or other Christians, the Catholic teaching of the Immaculate Conception is seen by them as the solution to a problem that doesn't exist.
I wish I'd had an immaculate conception like Mary, so I wouldn't have original sin.

May 15 Word of the Day
A few weeks ago, no one had “cheugy” in their vocabulary . Now everything is saturated with the word. It’s in our heads. It’s in our homes. Everyone is asking: “Am I cheugy? Am I a basic ass bitch? Am I GUILTY of being cheugy?”

The proliferation of cheugy in the mainstream discourse can only be attributed to one source: mental terror. It’s an orchestrated psychological trap to make you question your tastes and interests in the eyes of others.

You are not a cheug. YOU’RE PERFECT!!!!

It is very suspicious that the cheugy mascot is a Minion, a literal cyclops, a deformed
yellow panopticon in overalls ... do not let the all-seeing eye to control you. Be vigilant. Resist cheugy psyops.
Becca is another victim of cheugy psyops. I saw the garbage truck take all her Ugg boots yesterday. She even removed “I LOVE The Office!” from all her dating profiles. She’s unrecognizable.

A New Testament doctrine wherein Mary concieved Jesus Christ without having sex.
See MATTHEW 1:18-25 & LUKE 1:26-35.
For some reason, most Christians believe that since Mary did not have sex with Joseph (or anyone else) then Joseph cannot be Jesus' father. But, the Bible clearly says that Joseph was Jesus' father.

LUKE 3:23,
"Jesus began His ministry when He was about 30 years old. He was, as was supposed, the son of Joseph, who was the son of Heli."

Many read the above verse as though it says, "...He was NOT, as was supposed, the son of Joseph...". Even though Jesus was a product of Immaculate Conception, Yahweh could have taken DNA from Joseph to create Jesus, similar to when He took a rib from Adam to form Eve.

Jesus often refers to Himself as "the son of (a) man". Below are just references from the book of MATTHEW.

MATTHEW 8:20, 9:6, 11:19, 12:32, 13:37,41, 16:13,27,28, 17:9,12,22, 18:11, 19:28, 20:28, 24:27,30,39, 25:31, 26:24, 26:45,64,

A shit that mysteriously you didn't have to wipe your ass after.
I finished my business, wiped my ass, and there was nothing on the toilet paper. It was an immaculate conception.
