Link (subscription) Oh this one should give Bill O'Reilly a field day! (You know that somehow, it's going to end up being entirely the fault of American liberals and the ACLU, don't you? ) At any rate...talk about a ridiculous waste of the court's time. This is wrong on so many levels. I think even non-believers would agree that if you want to believe Jesus existed, you have a right to, and I'd be surprised if there was a way to interpret Italian law to have it say otherwise. For that matter -- and I'm well aware that Italian law and American law are different -- if you want to start a church of believers in the Flying Spaghetti Monster, what's wrong with that? If you want to claim FSM is real, and you're not hurting anybody, well...I'll think you're nuts, but other than that I won't care. Not to mention...how you gonna show in court that Jesus was really somebody named John of Gamala? The only thing I'd have to say against the priest is...how can you be "serene but bitter"?
