    It does’t surprise me that the Italian priest is going to be tried for saying Jesus existed. This is the inevitable result when the facts of history are not taught or denied. Not knowing history we can deny what is true and also accept what is untrue. In the latter case, we ony need to note the current Islamic protests about Muhammad being in depicted in cartoons in an uncomplimentary manner. Not knowing the history of the many evil acts he did makes millions idolize him.

    Sometimes the explanations given for acts are worse than the acts themselves. Take the Italian priest: First, he says that Jesus was born to the couple, Joseph and Mary. Well, something wrong here? Was St. Joseph perhaps more than Jesus’ adopted father?
    Enters the explanation of Righi’s lawyer: “[Severo Bruno] said he told [Judge] Mautone during the hearing that Righi was not asserting a historical fact when he wrote of Jesus’ existence, but rather ‘an expression of theological principles.’”
    Huh? Not fact, but (no, not fiction either) “theological principles.” Clearly, a Christianity that comes close to Gnosticism can be tolerated by any and all. But that kind of Christianity isn’t worth the blood of the holy martyrs — or our trust.
    Read Evelyn Waugh’s superb “Helena” as an antidote. The persistent questions of the empress: “Where? When? And how do you know?” disturbed both the followers of ancient Gnosticism as well as those of ancient mystery cults.
    And that hasn’t changed, even if those religions now have made their home in the church. Cascioldi, the Atheist, at least recognizes “facts” as such.
