A newly released piece of papyrus from the fourth century, written in the Coptic language, reportedly makes the reference “Jesus said to them, ‘My wife…’” This will no doubt freak out people in the Roman Catholic Church, because there is also reference to her being a disciple, which is something they maintain was the exclusive domain of men.
Rep. Barney Frank, heading towards his well earned retirement, seldom misses a chance for a fight these days, and he’s slamming Mitt Romney for his 47% comments. “Mitt Romney’s attack on the moral character of disabled veterans, elderly and disabled Social Security recipients, and hard-working Americans in low-wage jobs because they do not pay income taxes is especially galling given the great energy he has put into evading income taxes on his very high income.
