A Christian group in Kenya is asking for a repeal of Jesus’s crucifixion, claiming that he was wrongly convicted of blasphemy and therefore his execution was illegal.
The FOJ’s lawyer Humphrey Odanga said Jesus’ Crucifixion was a wrongful punishment for a trial based on charges of “blaspheming the Holy Spirit” and should be corrected by modern law.
What else can I say about this? (Well, it does make me wonder if these geniuses even understand that the core Christian doctrine is atonement. Without Jesus’s crucifixion, there’d be no salvation. What goes on in people’s heads? Don’t bother answering that.)
