Of course such a scenario is a direct contradiction to what our Church actually teaches (which shall be demonstrated in the following article), but then the movie was made by protestants who do not believe that Mary was anything more than exactly how they portrayed her.
Since the movie openly denied two essential Marian dogmas (Immaculate Conception and Perpetual Virginity), I felt my bones grind when I heard him say that. But I wasn't at war with him back then, so I kept it to myself and decided to get the truth out anyway.

THE SYNOD OF CAPUA AND THE VIRGIN BIRTH
The Synod of Capua was convened awhile ago, in the year 392, as a matter of fact. Among other items on the agenda, the Synod condemned the teachings of an ex-monk named Jovinian.
Now why are we bothering with an obscure synod and a heretical ex-monk, especially during the Christmas season?
As we shall see, the Synod of Capua and the Jovinian heresy are intimately connected to what exactly happened on that first Christmas when Christ left His mother's womb, or more precisely, HOW He left His mother's womb.
