And You Thought Americans Were Litigious

If someone held a competition to determine the filer of the stupidest lawsuit in history, one would expect that the winner would be an American. Right? Wrong. The odds-on favorite has gotta be this Italian guy.

I don't know which is worse: the fact that someone filed this lawsuit, or the fact that it didn't get laughed out of court.

Even before I clicked it, I knew that was going to be the "Jesus really existed" case. Um, I hate to break it to the atheist, but a historical man named Jesus was born, c. 4 B.C., to a woman named Mary and a man named Joseph. Whether he walked on water while turning it into wine or resurrected some dude named Lazarus or made some blind guy see or emerged from his tomb three days after dying is up to faith. But the man existed, for Christ's sake.

Why don't you read his book before
you judge his thesis?

It's about time we honestly point out
that religions are full of lies.

Ah comment spam. Ain't it grand?


I could go into all the historical proofs about Jesus, but frankly I have better uses for my time. Said the Evangelical Christian.

I could also analyze the 1,000,001 ways this is waaaaaaaay outside any court's jurisdiction, but frankly I have better uses for my time. Said the law nerd.
