Sexuality and theology rarely intersect. When they do, it is because people insist on literal interpretations of ancient texts. Lachelle Schillings commented on the need for Asexuality in theology discourses. She does not really explain why there is a need. Schillings instead relates a tale about her version of the conception of Jesus.
It is difficult to tell from the text whether she intends to tell a tale of a Lesbian conception or a sexless conception. Gabriel, Mary and Joseph appear in her narrative, but she introduces a new character. Elizabeth is present at the moment Jesus enters Mary's womb, although the role she plays is unclear.
The blogger tells a story about Jesus's birth that may have come out of Gnostic Christianity. Hagia Sophia, the Heavenly Mother in this theology, is mentioned in the story. It may have been that Schillings intended to show what one commenter suggests. She may have intended to tell a story that shows a higher power showing its love for its creation by allowing her to conceive without having to go through the traditional biological processes.
Schillings failed to go into how to fit Asexuality into theological discourses. Telling a well-known story in a different way does not tell the reader why the idea is important.
