I love a good lawsuit connected with history and religion as much as the next person, but I have to say that when the Knights Templar sue the Pope [ed.: link updated to an archived link because the original was broken] perhaps we’re digging a bit far into religious history for a current complaint. In any case, this one is too far up my alley not to mention it.
Apparently, the Knights hope the suit will help improve their reputation, sullied by age-old accusations of worshipping Satan, denying Jesus, and practicing sodomy. It seems more likely that they’ll have a new accusation added to the list: filing frivolous and unsuccessful lawsuits.
