Yep. Our pastor addressed this before. He worries, as do I, that the denial of a physical birth comes too close to Docetism. We believe that Jesus died a real death, and was born in the natural way. Like Poche, I believe this could happen while still preserving the sign of Mary's purity.

The Bible says Jesus was like us in all things, except sin. The same would be true of Mary.  When we start deliberating on what is meant by "all things" - and how much "humanness" did Jesus and Mary have without somehow lowering their dignity -  we venture into unwelcome and unpleasant speculations.
