My response to some Catholics who just can’t seem to comprehend how by labeling Mary as the “spouse” of the Holy Spirit, they have sexualized the conception of Jesus:

“I hope you don’t think that God needs to use physical sex for incarnating Jesus…” Of course I don’t. You do.

“God never fornicates since that is sin, hence that is one proof that Mary is the spouse of the Holy Spirit.” Without any sexual intercourse, there could be no fornication. Hence labeling Mary as the “spouse” of the Holy Spirit shows that you think there was sexual intercourse.
