CANTERBURY––The “mistake” was made by 21st century Pope and scholar known as Benedict XVI or God’s Rottweiler, the incoming Anglican Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby claims in his new book, Christ of Nazareth: The Baby Narratives, published on Thursday. “The Pope claims that the calculation of the beginning of our calendar, that being based on the birth of Jesus, was made by Dionysius Exiguus, who made a mistake in his calculations by several years…meaning that Jesus may have born years earlier than traditionally believed,” Welby says in his book. “Logically speaking, Jesus must have been born during the year 1, otherwise now would really be around the year 2004, and Pope John Paul ll would still be alive, which means that Pope Benedict would only be Cardinal Ratzinger, and not Pope Benedict, as is the name on his new book. As you can see, his argument is self-refuting.” Welby, known as a scholar in his own right, believes that Benedict XVI also makes other miscalculations in his new book when he claims that there were no donkeys or oxen in the manger during the Lord’s birth. “So then, dear people, how would one reconcile the Pope’s claims with the fact that in my home, at this very moment, there is a nativity scene beneath my flatscreen, within which lies an Ox, happily resting on a pile of cotton made to look like snow?”
