Jonathan. I just cannot comment any more on the deviated path this story takes the reader on. other than to say that I am saddened you chose to walk it as you are intelligent and ambitious, but gravely misguided. You have missed the entire point of Jesus' relationship with humankind...not MEN, but man. The Bride of Christ is not a MAN...it is all humanity. That is the reason he never married. He was not to marry as he was already married to the Church.
Love to you.
