It's in the Gnostic Gospels that the relationship between Jesus and MM is shown to be more than platonic. They even kiss on the lips! Quel risque. Lol.
Of course, the Church felt it had to suppress the Gnostic gospels and any ideas or beliefs that would have encouraged freedom of thought and expression, including freedom to explore spirituality in what we think of as a more eastern sense. The Gnostic Jesus speaks more like a buddhist than an Augustinian or Paulian Christian. Scholars even say that there is a clear eastern influence on the gnostic writings. It's too bad that that had to be hidden and lost for nearly 2000 years. Nowadays it's not at all unusual for the two traditions to explore boundaries beyond their individual modalities... most fortunately for us.
