Eric Sprankle, an associate psychology professor at Minnesota State University Mankato, tweeted that the Virgin Mary did not consent to being impregnated by God — "an all-knowing, all-powerful deity."
Another Twitter user questioned the professor's tweet, writing, "LK 1 26:38 states clearly that the angel communicated God's plan for Mary and in verse 38 she agreed. Whether you believe or disbelieve, it helps if you actually read the text."
But Sprankle wasn't backing down. He defended his initial claim by asserting, "the power difference" between God and Mary "negates" her ability to consent. Read more of the details here.
