Irish President says Jesus’ Crucifixion caused by climate change

DUBLIN, IRELAND—Irish President Michael Higgins spoke out against the internationally-condemned crucifixion reported to have taken place in the Levant 2,000 years ago. 

Higgins condemned the attack on a defenseless Christian leader, deploring such violence taking place on “Good Friday, a particularly sacred day for the Christian victims.” Higgins continued, “Such injustice is a source of particular condemnation, as is any attempt to call this tragedy anything more than the consequences of climate change.” 

The Associated Press first reported the attack as coming from radical Sadducee extremists, who had long used terrorism and execution to achieve their political ends in the region. But Western political leaders have since walked backed such claims, attributing such attacks as coming from complex regional politics triggered by food insecurity due to climate change. 

In an official statement made to the press, the President of Ireland reiterated the importance of recognizing that the Victim, known to his followers only as “Jesus,” was primarily a victim of climate change. 

“The solidarity of us all, as peoples of the world, is owed to all those impacted not only by this horrible event but in the struggle by the most vulnerable on whom the consequences of climate change have been inflicted,” he said. 

At press time, Higgins was preparing a statement about the impact climate change had on causing Apartheid.
