Oh how funny. Spotted in the paper today, amid the religious stories pandering to easter, or perhaps to the Christian right in all its glory, is a description of Judas Iscariot as ""the apostle who allegedly betrayed Jesus to the Romans".
Suddenly it is "allegedly". Police speak for the accusation. This, of course, because of the new Judas texts which purportedly paint Judas in a kindly light. So now we must be careful in how he is described. Now this religious fundament is in question. Cautiously "alleged". It is unproven.
Rather like the rest of the bible, really.
