Das Leben des Jesus Guilty in Greece

imageI had to blink twice and I'm still not sure I'm getting it right because it's so bizarre but it looks to me like the Austrian cartoonist Gerhard Haderer was found guilty and sentenced to six months -- I have to think in absentia -- in Greece for his take on the miracles of Jesus Christ in his Das Laben De Jesus album, released a couple years back. The article explains briefly the close nature of church and state within certain elements of Greek law, and gets points with me for using the word "contumacy."

Reader Ralf Haring corrects my German and provides further links in his letter.
