Judas the Redeemed Betrayer? Apparently Not
A couple of weeks ago, I posted "Judas the Redeemed Betrayer?" The Times Online had reported that the Pontifical Committee for Historical Science of the Roman Catholic Church wanted to "re-read" the Judas story.

The problem? Apparently, it was all a ruse. At least I wasn't the only one who was hoodwinked. Dr. Mohler provides an update to the post he originally made, "
No Rehabilitation for Judas After All?" He reports:

Now, Vatican sources -- including some of the very same sources cited in The Times -- say the whole idea is nonsense. "This news has no foundation," said Walter Brandmueller, head of the Pontifical Committee of Historical Sciences. "I can't imagine where this idea came from."

I could not find any retraction in The Times, but someone has some explaining to do.

Awww and the fake news is always so much more fun. Kind of funny how apparently the Daily Show isn't the only ones with a desire to make stuff up when it comes to news anymore.
