Judge Shelves Case Over Jesus' Existence

To a Christian, it is incomprehensible that someone would try to prove Jesus did not exist. But, that is what Luigi Cascioli, 72, and atheist from Italy, tried to do. He tried suing his hometown priest and friend for saying Jesus existed 2,000 years ago.

The judge decided to have Cascioli investigated for slandering the priest, instead of allowing the case to go forth. Cascioli says they will have to prove Jesus existed in order to have a case for slander against him, and they could not do that.
