The Associated  Press is reporting:

AMSTERDAM, Netherlands – An Amsterdam publishing house said Wednesday it will release a biography of Jesus written by filmmaker Paul Verhoeven.

Verhoeven is best known as the director of blockbuster films including Basic Instinct and Robocop, but he is also a member of Jesus Seminar, a group of scholars and authors that seeks to establish historical facts about Jesus, said spokeswoman Marianna Sterk of the publishing house J.M. Meulenhoff

Asides:  Old story, no proof, no theological standing.   Why is this even news?

Note the dateline.   Would Verhoeven have the balls to publish a story about a Islamic historical figure?   Most likely not.

So where are the Dutch riots?   Where are the calls to behead Verhoeven?    Why is not safe to demean Islam but safe to demean Christianity?    Is it even acceptable to note the difference in tolerance between Christians and Muslims?
