The Gospel according to ... who?

Well, here's another update to that whole "complete and unalterable word of god" stuff.

It's called The Gospel Of Judas and, basically, puts the character of Judas into a very different light. Apparently, the gospel was banned by the early Christian church because the view that Jesus knew Judas was going to betray him and gave his blessing was heretical.

Not that this is any surprise to anyone with the ability to think rationally. I mean.. he was.. like.. god, right? How could he not have known? And that whole "dirty Jews killed our lord" hatred that's been festering for a few millennia, what's that about? Wasn't the whole point that he was supposed to die? So didn't the Jews do him a favour?

Okay, back to reality here. Rationailty not high on the agenda.

So there's another bit to The Bible that we've never seen before?

Big deal.

I'm still waiting for the page that reads "To my darling Candy. All characters portrayed within this book are fictitous and any resemblance to persons living or dead is purely coincidental."
