Anyway, we had a "silly" disagreement and thought it might be fun to make a vlog out of it. Here goes, oh and if you'd just like to read the conversation instead, that's below the video.
Elisa: We're here to talk about the Virgin Mary.
Melynda: Indeed. We have some disagreements.
Elisa: That's right. I think she was ugly.
Melynda: And I think she was probably semi-attractive, which was what kept Joseph around.
Elisa: Just 'semi,' huh?
Melynda: Well . . .
Elisa: Just 'semi.' Noted.
Melynda: It's not like she could put some mascara on.
Elisa: Exactly, because she needed some.
Dude, she had the heart of a saint! Would God make her beautiful, too? That seems awfully unfair.
Melynda: Maybe she was beautiful on the inside and out.
Elisa: Ya, I don't know. I got nothin', but that's still what I think.
Melynda: So that's her opinion on that one. The other thing we have a disagreement on is whether or not Mary suffered through childbirth.
Elisa: I don't think she did.
Melynda: And I think she suffered.
Elisa: But God wouldn't go ahead and strike her down with ugliness AND pain during childbirth.
Then Melynda pulled a face that I LOVE because it always gives me the giggles.
Melynda: I've been trying to explain to Elisa that life isn't fair. And if God wanted things to be fair, He would have spared a lot of people some ugliness.
Elisa: Too bad the Virgin Mary wasn't one of them.
Melynda: So, I think she was attractive and she suffered during childbirth since that's a normal process.
Elisa: You don't think, that if God could come down and "gift" her a child for Christmas, that He wouldn't spare her some pain. That's the least He could do.
(P. S. I know Jesus made Christmas; it's called me being silly.)
Melynda: No, I think he let her be in pain.
Elisa: Let her?
Melynda: Let's say she was the "virgin" Mary, and her -----
Elisa: Dude, that's crazy. I'm so glad that didn't happen to me. Yeah, not a good thing.
So, we just wanted to ask you: do you think the Virgin Mary was pretty; do you think she went through pain in childbirth, or do you think she had it all?
Melynda: Merry Christmas.
Ride your asses to Bethlehem.
