Pope: The Jews Did Not Kill Jesus!

Wednesday, 02 March 2011 15:36 administrator

We aren't sure whether this should go in our Celebrity Authors section or The Latest News section, but the pope (yes, the pope) has written a book, and in he says that the death of Jesus was not about punishment, but yet salvation.

In , which comes out on March 10, Pope Benedict XVI dispels the long-held belief by many Christians and Mel Gibson that the Jews were responsible for the death of Jesus. Throughout history that notion has been the source of violence, murder, and persecution against the Jews.

Take The A-Train!

From Flava Flav to Mrs. Brady: Celeb Books

By Stephanie Brewster

Celebs are jumping on the memoir bandwagon, some to make a quick buck (cough, Snooki, cough), others to tell a genuine story of their rise to fame.  It’s easy us to figure out the motive behind their books—all you have to do is look at the author.  For example, Paris Hilton.  Why is she famous?  What does she do?
