Hear Ye, Hear Ye

I thought all of the business about creationism vs. evolution was interesting. This takes the cake.
CNN is among those reporting that the age old question: Did Jesus exist? will be answered by the world's foremost authorities -- an Italian court.

Two men -- Enrico Righi and Luigi Cascioli -- both in their 70s,are battling it out. Both went to the same seminary school. However, along the way Cascioli became an athiest. Apparently, he has a bone to pick.
Cascioli says Righi, and by extension the whole Church, broke two Italian laws. The first is "Abuso di Credulita Popolare" (Abuse of Popular Belief) meant to protect people against being swindled or conned. The second crime, he says, is "Sostituzione di Persona," or impersonation.
Righi reports he has no idea why he has been singled out for this fight. Both men admit the odds are against Cascioli, who says:
"It would take a miracle to win."
Don't you just wonder what a court in Roman Catholic Italy has to say about this one?

My entire outlook on life will hinge on this trial. I am waiting for the Italian court sytsem's rulling with trepidation. I will stand by their decision without reservation. Haha
