I liked the bit at the end about their office discussion over whether to post the satire:

Lat: It's clear satire, so I'm not offended by this as a Catholic - but could other religious people be offended?

Elie: What, TOO SOON?

What the author forgot to mention is that Jesus was a drug dealer.  A loner with long hair, with twelve followers, going from town to town to spread "the Word." And his Father is the big one that everyone must listen to or they get punished. And Genesis says that man is to make use of all plants on Earth. That includes pot and coke. Jesus would have never gotten into trouble if Judas didn't snitch to the authorities.
The logic is inescapable. It was a setup job.

But one of them, named Caiaphas, who was high priest that year, said to them, "You know nothing at all!  You do not realize that it is better for you that one man die for the people than that the whole nation perish."

 -- John 11:49-50 (NIV)

Jesus's trial was fixed from the beginning.  Caiaphas, leader of the Sanhedrin, was worried that Jesus's followers would provoke a rebellion against Rome (which did in fact happen a few decades later, and ended with the destruction of Israel and the Jewish Diaspora).  So after indicting Jesus and turning him over to Pilate, he  incited the Jerusalem mob to force Pilate to hand down a guilty verdict.  Caesar would've pinned the blame for the revolt on Pilate if it happened under his watch, so Pilate had every reason to go along with Caiaphas's scheme.

The best lawyer in the world ain't gonna help you when the judge has a personal reason for seeing you hang.

Read the book, plotline was stodgy and the ending was predictable.
