Heads Exploding! Or Not.
Well, these will challenge the pinheads who don't tolerate narrative-deviance:, or it won't:
George Bush authorizes leaks. This one is fairly easy to defend by the voluntarily, militantly blinkered: after all, if the President does it, it can't be illegal.
Judas Iscariot as Jesus' campaign manager?
This one is fairly easy to defend by the voluntarily, happily blinkered: after all, if Jesus does it, it can't be immoral.
Rather than the traitor as Judas is portrayed in the New Testament, this document -- The Gospel of Judas -- indicates that he acted at the request of Jesus to help him shed his earthly body.... The key passage comes when Jesus tells Judas "you will exceed all of them. For you will sacrifice the man that clothed me...." This indicates that Judas would help liberate the spiritual self by helping Jesus get rid of his physical flesh, the scholars said.
The President uses false information to promote his agenda, throwing a key aid under the bus. Jesus stages his false execution to promote his agenda, throwing a key aid under the bus. And both are defended by the "if he did it, it must be OK" defense. Hmmm.
