- ROME (Reuters) - The atheist who started a crusade against
the Catholic Church, trying to sue a priest, at Viterbo's
court, because he had affirmed the historical existance
of Jesus, 2000 years ago, has seen his case rejected by
the judge. So has been said by the priest's lawyer..Luigi
Cascioli, 72 years old, sustains that the priest, born
in his same town and his own schoolmate, has performed
an illegal act by violating the rule which forbbids to
deceive people through fraud. Instead of allowing Cacioli
to present his case to the Court, an order has been issued
for the magistrates, to open an investigation to determine
whether Cascioli has injuriated the priest, Don Enrico
Righi. So has been declared by Bruno Severo, the priest's
lawyer.Don Righi, 76 , received the news joyiously:"Thanks
God its over", he has told Reuters. "I am happy
it has ended this way. Just immagine what would happen
if it went on".Cascioli,who has written a book:"La
favola di Cristo"(The fable of Christ"),has
said the court has not yet notified him of its decision.
He also said he is not surprised and he will appeal.
Cascioli is not worried about the possibility of being
charged with slander. He sustains that to be judged for
having lied, the Court must prove Christ existed."They
simply don't have the evidence" he declared last.
