Jesus on Trial ... Again ... for Real!

A Catholic priest in Italy is being sued by an atheist for asserting that Jesus actually existed, and the Italian courts have so far refused to dismiss the case! His ultimate goal is to persuade the European Court of Human Rights to find the church guilty of "religious racism." Huh?

"Cascioli says that for 2,000 years the Roman Catholic Church has been deceiving people by furthering the fable that Christ existed, and says the church has been gaining financially by 'impersonating' as Christ someone by the name of John of Gamala, the son of Judas from Gamala.

"Judge Gaetano Mautone set a hearing for next Friday in Viterbo, north of Rome, to discuss preliminary motions in Cascioli's bid to have the court appoint technical experts to review the historical data and determine if Jesus really did exist. ... "Cascioli says he fully recognizes that his case has a slim chance of succeeding in overwhelmingly Catholic Italy, but not because his argument is lacking. ... Cascioli says he is merely going through the necessary legal steps in Italy so he can ultimately take the matter to the European Court of Human Rights, where he intends to pursue the case against the church for 'religious racism'." Article.
Bitterness makes people do really stupid things.
