Latest Real Jesus turns out to totally agree with discoverer of Latest Real Jesus.

Reza Aslan (whom the HuffPo regards a “religious scholar”): Jesus was a Marxist. Old news, of course. Of the manufacture of Latest Real Jesuses there is no end.

Princesses, every single one of them.  And each of them worth a thousand Richard Dawkinses. “Spirit,” said Scrooge, with an interest he had never felt before, “tell me if Tiny Tim will live.” “I see a vacant seat,” replied the Ghost, “in the poor chimney-corner, and a crutch without an owner, carefully preserved.
