When I first read the article (in another thread?) I thought it was pretty funny... now I just find it ironic that in a nation that is over 90% Catholic, it will be an unwilling magistrate who will "decide" whether or not Jesus existed...
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

If Jesus' existence was going to be in the hands of an Italian Court, Christ would have incarnated as a Gambino for sure  ;)

With a seemingly impossible number of marbles in the mouth to further illustrate God's power.  Oh, and the ability to speed-eat a pizza in under 3 minutes.  SWEEEEEEET.

Gotta love stereotypes.  OPA!

If they decide against, who's going to have the guts to arrest the Pope?
