Of Virgin Mary & Transexuals
I recently met someone who is a relative of the famous Virgin Mary visionary from Agoo, La Union, Judiel Nieva. In the early, 90'sm this eleven year old boy has been a household name for Filipinos as thousands have flocked in his hometown to witness the different Marian apparitions he has claimed to be a witness of.
But his Marian phenomenon has been declared a hoax by the Catholic Church.
Now, if you haven't been a follower of Filipino pop culture, Judiel Nieva has changed his name to "Angel Nieva" and has been wearing woman's clothes. And according to my source, Angel has been doing several modeling assignments mostly abroad and has been dating some influential politicos as well.
Now, I was wondering. If the church has approved his Marian phenomenon to be authentic, would he actually allow his "transexual" self to manifest publicly? Had this been the case, could this be a public affirmation that Virgin Mary, Jesus Christ and other Christian figures do actually accept transexuals or perhaps the whole gay community?
I'm just curious. What if that had been the case? Would the church change its point of view on gays?
