available evidence supports only the idea that Jesus selected twelve men to be the authoritative foundation for His Church. I know of no evidence that indicates that these twelve or those they selected as their successors ever taught that Jesus was married or that Jesus' body remained, after the morning of the third day after His death, in the grave in which His followers placed Him. in other words, the story of the empty grave is supported by all available evidence and right reason.
rubbish and nonsense without a shred of evidence.

once the u.s. government allowed the citizens of Nevada to form a sovereign state, the federal government no longer owned the real property within that state. the state government and its citizens alone owned that property. at least according to the "law of the land", the u.s. constitution, that is.

according to the u.s. constitution the federal government can only own land within a state if the state has freely chosen to sell the land to the federal government. when did the state of Nevada freely decide to sell 80% of its land to the federal government?

on another federal government violation of the u.s. constitution, where in the constitution is the federal government given the right, the power or the authority to own real property other than the district of Columbia? the constitution states that powers not expressly granted to the federal government or expressly denied to the states belong to the states. the ownership of real property is such a power. in other words, when the federal government approves the citizens of a particular area of real property as a sovereign state, it is simultaneously denying to itself any ownership of that real property. there was a reason the district of Columbia was created by the constitution.

the government makes many laws regarding religion. the most egregious violation of the first amendment by the government is its prohibition on citizens from engaging in religious activities on government controlled real property and when serving as government employees.

there is no evidence that Jesus' mother ever opposed Him or sought to silence Him, none, nada, zilch. did some of His cousins oppose Him? there is support for that conclusion, but no support for the erroneous idea that His mother opposed Him.

there are books written on this subject. it is not simple to fully understand Mary and her role in God's plan of salvation. there are good answers to your questions but this forum is not the time and place for a theological lesson in to a complex element of salvation history. google Mary's "perpetual virginity" and select a source that is compatible with the Roman Catholic Church's teaching on the subject to learn the rationale and evidence supporting her "perpetual virginity". your questions have been asked and answered for the last 19 and 1/2 centuries.

if this single passage is the ONLY reason people have for claiming Mary opposed Jesus during His lifetime, they are the people being duped. for example, what happened at the wedding feast in Cana? Mary told the servants, do as He (Jesus) tells you. perhaps those who want to believe that Mary was no different from anyone else who lived during Jesus' life are misinterpreting the passage they use to support their belief that Mary was a doubter of Jesus? it does not say Mary spoke the words in that passage. could it be that Mary was with Jesus' cousins because she wanted to minimize the nonsense they (the cousins) were about to perpetrate (perpetrate because they did not believe in Jesus)? for those who claim Mary rejected Jesus' public message, I suggest they consider the bulk of the evidence available and not a solitary passage that can easily be subjected to a variety of interpretations and understandings.
