Good Friday Indeed

ROME Apr 13, 2006 (AP)— Pope Benedict XVI Thursday recounted the Biblical betrayal of Jesus by Judas, calling the apostle a double-crosser for whom "money was more important than communion with Jesus, more important than God and his love."

Quite frankly when I heard about this last night, I remarked that the Pope is a politician, not a theologian. Furthermore, when the Pope was known as Joey Ratz, he was the PR/spin guy/Karl Rove for the Vatican.

The delightful Mark Morford asks, "how does the new and improved Judas story pinch the ass of our collective mythology?" Read it here: The Bible's All Wrong, Again
The surprising Gospel of Judas proves you just can't be too sure about all that God stuff.
