I Don't Believe in Nothing No More!

I was reading today's Toronto Star and I suppose being Easter weekend they needed to give Jesus some coverage. Of course it was highly controversial pushing Christianity to the brink of insanity and perhaps beyond. The first blasphemous article claimed that perhaps the cross was actually a "T" and not a "t". And if this weren't enough they went to say that maybe the nails were not driven through his hands but through his forearms. Needless to say there has been outrage. "Several theologians say it's offensive to deliberately ignore the iconic depiction venerated by millions of Christians, Catholics in particular."
The second article appears to swipe the legs right out from under the Christianity machine. Here the unprecedented statement is made that Jesus may not have actually been interested in forming a new religion. It is not surprising that we the faithful have missed such a controversial claim as Barry Wilson took "a close reading of the story of Jesus – some drawing on lost gospels not included in modern Bibles" which "reveal[ed] that he was not trying to establish a new religion in his name."

Lord have mercy. How do you even start to respond? If this is a controversial as it gets these days I am not sure what that is telling us about these books authors or about their readers.
Christ have mercy.
