Obviously the powers that be are going bye bye then quite obviously,
see, and understand ?
What Jesus would that be?
The one that cannot be shown to have ever existed or the gardener?
Now that I have begun to deal with this problem, as so often happens,
the charges are becoming more widespread and increasing in variety. An
anonymous writing has circulated that contains the names of several
accused individuals. From these, I considered dismissing any who denied
that they were or ever had been “Christ-niks” when they had recited
after me an invocation of the gods and made offerings of wine and
incense to your statue—which I ordered brought into court for this
purpose along with the images of the gods—and further reviled the name
of Christ: none of which, I understand, any true “Christ-niks” can be
induced to do. Others, whose names were given to me by an informant,
first admitted the charge and then denied it; they said that they had
ceased to be “Christ-niks” two or more years before, and some of them
even twenty years ago. They all venerated your statue and the images of
the gods in the same way as the others, and cursed the name of Christ.
That some people believed in the supposed Christ is not in doubt.
Some people believe in leprechauns. Is that evidence that they exist?
Yes you are.
