A Kenyan lawyer has petitioned the International Court of Justice to overturn the trial and conviction of Jesus Christ and his subsequent death sentence.

Dola Indidis, a former spokesman of the Kenyan Judiciary, is attempting to sue, among others, the Republic of Italy and the State of Israel over the execution of the Christian Messiah.

Quote from the article:

According to the New Testament, the Messiah ran into trouble after performing miracles and claiming he was the son of God, prompting Jewish authorities to arrest him on charges of blasphemy.

Makes me think of this verse from the bible:

For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.

He sacrificed Himself for our sins so a pardon is not required, imo.

The Republic of Italy wasn't even established until the 1800's; he can't mean the Vatican (also a sovereign state), as there were no 'Roman Catholic' authorities functioning in Palestine circa 30-33 A.D. St. Peter had just bailed on his first assignment. As for the State of Israel, perhaps there is a need for Special Prosecutor Mel Gibson, who repeated the "blood libel" against the Jewish people in his film "The Passion of the Christ;" but actually theocracy was crushed numerous times in Jerusalem and thereabouts between 70 AD and 1948 AD.

What the good lawyer really could use is a time machine to get on the track of those originally implicated.

Wouldn't they have to prove he was a real person first. It is all just hearsay. That might be kind of tough.

Did anyone not inform the idiot that Jesus was meant to be a sacrifice for the sins of mankind?  It was his fathers plan?

I hate these things, this tires in with some that claim - Jesus was murdered...they forget the reason why they have salvation amongst everything else..

Personally, I'm more worried about "the Jews killed Jesus' angle myself.  Other than that, seems like this "lawyer" is trying to make a quick & sleazy buck.

Wouldn't that make it suicide by cop then?

It was so much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyone's fault. If it was us, what did that make Me? After all, I'm one of Us. I must be. I've certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No one ever thinks of themselves as one of Them. We're always one of Us. It's Them that do the bad things.

Oh yes he will be probably accused if not charged for antisemitism.

Somehow, I do not think that Kenya has very many anti-Semitic laws on the books
