Catholics in Italy and in Spain, Orthodox Christians in Bulgaria, and many others in Scotland and South America rioted Thursday. They were triggered by the reports that a fragment of papyrus suggested that Jesus the Christ was married. Christians in several African countries burned down mosques with worshipers inside after looting the shops of Muslim merchants
The report incensed several varieties of Christians because it is a major article of faith among Christians that the Savior did not partake of the pleasures of the flesh (as marriage sometimes implies).
Elsewhere in the world, two Oslo rioters where shot dead by police trying to protect the embassies of Muslim countries. In Helsinki, ever-fanatical Lutherans tried to set the Egyptian Embassy on fire because the papyrus fragment in question originated in Egypt. One Finnish rioter declared that the new Islamist government of Egypt concocted the blasphemous story or, at the very least, that it failed to censor it. Other rioters joined in to proclaim that the papyrus should have been suppressed out of respect for the Christian religion.
