Group Asks Kenya's High Court To Declare Jesus' Crucifixion Illegal

Interfax today reports that in Kenya, a group called Friends of Jesus has filed a petition in Kenya's High Court asking it to declare Jesus Christ's conviction for blaspheming the Holy Spirit null and void and his crucifixion illegal. A spokesperson for the High Court suggested that the statute of limitations might not be a bar to the suit because it involves human rights matters. Some lawyers suggested that the suit should have been filed in the International Criminal Court in the Hague, while others say it should be dismissed because the conduct at issue did not take place in Kenya.
