WorldNetDaily: Atheist who sued priest over Jesus' reality fined

The fine was for filing a frivolous case and pursuing a frivolous appeal. I wish we had that rule on this side of the lake.

More to the point: an atheist sued a Catholic priest, claiming that anyone who asserts the reality and historicity of Jesus Christ is guilty of fraud. But that atheist had one small problem: Jesus Christ is, without a doubt, the Best-attested Figure in all of human history, "both sacred and profane" as Archbishop James Ussher might have said. Historians from Flavius Josephus to the Romans Tacitus and Pliny the Younger attest either to Him directly or to His followers. Not even Julius Caesar has as many historical references about him--and no one disputes his reality!
