Today is Good Friday...

Today is Good Friday, observed worldwide by Jesus buffs as the day on which the popular, bearded cultural figure, sometimes referred to as The Messiah, was allegedly crucified and - according to legend - died for mankind's so-called sin. Today kicks off a holy weekend that culminates on Easter Sunday, when, it is widely believed, this dead savior - who also, by the way, claimed to be the son of a sky-dwelling, invisible being known as God - mysteriously rose from the dead.



According to the legend, by volunteering to be killed and actually going through with it, Jesus saves every person who has ever lived - and every person who ever will live - from an eternity of suffering in a fiery region popularly known as hell, providing - so the story goes - that the person to be saved firmly believes this rather fanciful tale.
