    "The Expected One": Woman claims to be descendant of Jesus and Mary Magdalene

    Is the world ready for a book and an author more controversial than Dan Brown and The Da Vinci Code?

    Meet Kathleen McGowan, novelist and self-proclaimed descendant of a union between Jesus and Mary Magdalene. McGowan, who says she is from the "sacred bloodline" Brown made famous in his mega-selling novel, says she's ready to cope with people who think she's crazy or a heretic.

    But among believers are her powerful literary agent and the editors at New York publisher Simon & Schuster, who are throwing their weight behind her autobiographical religious thriller The Expected One, out July 25, with a sizable first printing of 250,000 copies.

    "I certainly expect there to be a backlash," says McGowan, 43, a Little League mom from Los Angeles who with her husband, Peter, has three sons: Patrick, 16, Conor, 12, and Shane, 4. "But I have the support of my family and friends and that's what I draw from."

    Think of McGowan as an Americanized Sophie Neveu come to life. In Da Vinci Code, Sophie (played by Audrey Tautou in this summer's movie adaptation) is a French woman who discovers she is a descendant of Jesus and Mary — a concept many Christians reject.

    "The Expected one"......

    I trust (but, in fact, seriously doubt) that she has documentation for her claim.

    So what if she is a descendant of them(Although I think it's bullshit). No one knows if Jesus and the folk were so damn holy as people tend to say.

    "The Expected One"

    Frankly, I have long envisioned J.C. God, jr. not as tall and slender with long auburn hair, but as relatively short and stocky with a curly black beard, a hooked nose, and a nasal voice....I agree, who cares if a Jewish religious reformer had descendents ?

    Not me, atleast. And not so many members of BuB as well, if I dare say so.

    Besides, how can she trace her bloodline that far back? I mean, we live in 2006, allright, but how can she say that her grandgrandgrandgrandgrandgrandgrandgrand grandgrand-father was Jesus?

    (I think she have read The DaVinci Code and those books too many times...)

    Wow. I have heard of people believing in a bloodline, but I have never heard until now about someone who believes they are descended from this bloodline.

    Well I want proof hard proof. Also I would like to see a mental evaluation of this woman.

    Gagnraad I agree with you on the last sentence someone has read way too many Da Vinci Code type of books lol.
    What does not kill me, makes me stronger- Friedrich Nietzsche Twilight of the Idols 1888

    It is dangerous to be right when the government is wrong- Voltaire

    Government can easily exist without laws, but law cannot exist without government- Bertrand Russell

    Abortion is advocated only by persons who have themselves been born- Ronald Reagan

    America had often been discovered before Columbus, but it had always been hushed up- Oscar Wilde
