Good News 

From today's Washington Times:

"In anticipation of the Feb. 25 release of Mel Gibson's controversial movie, "The Passion of the Christ," the poll also found that 80 percent of Americans do not feel that the Jews of today bear responsibility for the death of Jesus Christ, against 8 percent who said they did."

Apparently, this is good news! Only 8% of the people in the alleged greatest society in the history of civilization believe that Dodgers outfielder Shawn Green bears responsibility for the death of a carpenter 2000 years ago! Why that adds up to only slightly less than 25 million people!

But don't believe me that this is good news, see Michael Graham at The Corner...

"Given that the margin of error is +/-4%, concerns about Mel Gibson's movie would appear to be exaggerated."

Of course, I suppose this could mean that up to 12% of the population believes that famed funnyman Mel Brooks killed Jesus.

Incidentally, the same poll indicates that 60% of Americans believe the Bible is "literally" true. I don't even want to think about what that means.

UPDATE: It just occurred to me that it appears that 12% of Americans are undecided as to whether the Jews of today bear responsibility for Christ's death - I suppose, sensibly, that they are waiting for more evidence to come in before they reach a final conclusion as to whether Ruth Bader Ginsburg is guilty of a murder that took place 2000 years ago.
