"Church worshippers cried 'heresy'
at the Dean of Trinity College as they left a sermon claiming Jesus may have been transgender
"But the view
of a transgender Jesus is 'legitimate', according to Dr Michael Banner, the Dean who stepped in to defend the claim made at a Sermon last Sunday that Christ had a 'trans body'.
"Dr Michael Banner, the Dean of Trinity College, was backing up junior research fellow Joshua Heath, who displayed Renaissance and Medieval paintings of the crucifixion depicting a side wound that he likened to a vagina in front of the congregation.
The side wound 'takes on a decidedly vaginal appearance', said Heath, whose PhD was supervised by the former Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams.

With heretics like this in charge, of the CoE, it cannot be labelled a legitimate church.
Also the law required every sacrifice to be an animal without blemish.
More heresy from Dr Michael Banner
(14 Nov 2017)
Delivering the Thought for the Day on the BBC’s Radio 4 Today programme, he said ‘the books of the Bible, from which the church takes its inspiration and teaching, themselves challenge the stereotypes and negative attitudes which have led us to exclude from fellowship those whom we judge outsiders’.
Citing a story from the biblical book of Acts where one of the disciples meets a foreign eunuch......
‘His baptizing a foreign financier of uncertain gender status, holds out to us an inclusive vision of community – a vision to which schools, Christian schools above all, should surely aspire.’
‘Uncertain gender status’? Twaddle. Being made a eunuch doesn't affect gender.
Revd Dr Michael Banner, dean at Trinity College, claimed that anyone who opposes paying slavery reparations is guilty of ‘ignorance’ and ‘stupid, knee-jerk responses’. [source
