‘God the Father fell under scrutiny Monday when Minnesota State University associate professor Eric Sprankle accused the creator of the universe of impregnating the Virgin Mary, mother of Jesus, without consent.
Sprankle, who is a clinical psychologist at Minnesota State University, Mankato, suggested that the #MeToo movement should also be outraged over Christmas, stating, “The virgin birth story is about an all-knowing, all-powerful deity impregnating a human teen. There is no definition of consent that would include that scenario.”
”Happy Holidays.” The professor concluded.

When another Twitter user challenged Sprankle’s assertion, stating that an angel clearly communicated God’s plan, to which the Virgin Mary agreed, the professor doubled down, calling God “predatory.”
”To put someone in this position is an unethical abuse of power at best and grossly predatory at worst,” he wrote.
Of course, a plain reading of the Biblical text refutes this interpretation of Jesus’ birth.’
