Italian Meatballs

An Italian judge has ordered a priest to appear in court this month to prove that Jesus Christ existed.

This might just be another ‘look at those whacky europeans’ moment, unless you remember that just 8 months ago we heard that the Italians were prosecuting a writer for insulting the Muslim faith. Put that together with this suit charging the Catholic church with “fraud, abuse of popular credulity and impersonation” based on the claims of a militant atheist, and it seems that defamation of religion is OK with the authorities if the religion is Christian.

A shame those whacky europeans don’t believe in free speech or a level playing field.
