If you haven't heard by now, an individual tried to bring an Italian parish priest to trial for claiming that Jesus actually existed. It was recently thrown out by the judge.
An Italian judge has dismissed an atheist's petition that a small-town priest should stand trial for asserting that Jesus Christ existed, both sides said on Friday.
Luigi Cascioli, a 72-year-old retired agronomist, had accused the Rev. Enrico Righi of violating two laws with the assertion, which he called a deceptive fable propagated by the Roman Catholic Church.
What concerns me is what may happen in the future.
Cascioli, a former schoolmate of Righi's, said he had not expected the case to succeed in overwhelmingly Roman Catholic Italy.
"This is not surprising but it doesn't mean it all ends here," he said, adding that he's considering taking the case to the European Court of Human Rights.
It will be interesting to see how the European Union handles this, as it currently considers bending over for Islamofacists who reacted with violence to silly cartons. Will the court dismiss the matter, or will we see Christianity threatened by more than just a parish priest's former classmate who is getting cranky in his old age? Unfortunately, I'm not very confident in making a positive prediction based on recent history.
