Truth is stranger than...

Hat tip to Get Religion for this link to the story about the number 666 and a recent piece of legislation in Britain attempting disestablish the Church of England.

Oh, by the way. If you remember all that stuff about scholars and the discovery of the "Gospel of Judas" which apparently challenged the established Scripture's version of the events of the betrayal and crucifixion of Christ? The media usually trots out these stories every Easter to poke the Church's eye at their holiest time (Amazing though, they don't do it at Ramadan) and this story, like the others, turns out to be, again, a hoax. This time it was poor translation and reporters who apparently were more interested in the splashy headline then examining the context. Sounds familiar.
