OK, this won't be TOO controversial or anything

Paul AP is reporting that Dutch film director Paul Verhoeven has written a book that suggests that Jesus was fathered by a Roman soldier who raped Mary. Wow, that won't offend too many people. But honestly, how can you not trust the man responsible for bringing us Basic Instinct and RoboCop?

Amsterdam publishing house J.M. Meulenhoff will publish Jesus of Nazareth: A Realistic Portrait in September.

AP also points out that Verhoeven is a member of Jesus Seminar, a group of artists and scholars that tries to "establish historical facts" about Jesus.

How DARE anybody with a brain and the ability to reason suggest that Jesus was anything but the magical incarnation of an invisible all-powerful deity!
