Christ was born at a different time
According to the Westar Religious Institute in America, it was a monk from Russia called Dionysius Exiguus who was asked by Pope John to work out the dates for Easter. when Dionysius formalized the date of Jesus birth as December 25 on the Christian calendar. The current head of the Catholic Church Pope Benedict writes in his new book called of Nazareth: The Infancy Narratives that Dionysius got it wrong. He says the calculation of the beginning of the calendar based on the birth of Jesus was made by Dionysius Exiguus, who made a mistake on his calculations by several years. Professor of Classics, Nature and History at Warwick University, Kevin Butcher says the idea that Jesus wasn born on December 25 is nothing new. Churchmen in the 17th century had also challenged the date before.
This discrepancy has been known about for many centuries, in fact. In the 17th century it became quite apparent that the calculations by Dionysius Exiguus were incorrect. The dating basically rests on the New Testament. Birth of Jesus occurs during the reign of King Herod the Great. Trying to reconcile the various discrepancies is quite difficult anyway, whether this is particularly important to an article of faith I don know, I don think so.
There were plenty of other dating systems in use. This is one of the reasons why it was so hard for Dionysius to figure out the date, in the first place. There are lots of competing dating systems. And trying to create some kind of universal one is very hard, if you working with lots of other dating systems.
Caroline Farrow is from the Catholic Voice and says most religious people know that the day recognized as Christmas Day and Jesus birthday is, in fact, wrong.
The Pope isn really saying anything new. I think the media is just trying to find a bit of a negative story.
It not only the issue of data of Christ birthday that the Pope has raised in his book. He also dispels the myth of the nativity set. According to in Nazareth: The Infancy Narratives there were no ox, no little donkey or other animals at Jesus birth. Caroline Farrow is from the Catholic Voice says people shouldn focus on what just surrounds the nativity set.
This is his own personal interpretation and he looking in a way in which Luke and Matthew have interpreted historical facts. Caroline Farrow thinks the Pope is setting people a challenge to view Christmas differently. But the Pope does say in his book that no one will give up the ox or the little donkey in their scenes. We asked Christmas shoppers if not having the little donkey next to babyJesus on a bed of straw changes the way they celebrate Christmas.
Not really. I celebrate it anyway. I believe in God.
That doesn really affect me. I not particularly religious anyway. To me Christmas is about something else. It about seeing people, giving presents, general good will. I celebrate it not because some baby was born one day or the other day 2000 years ago.
The Book of Nazareth: Infancy Narratives traces Christ early life until the age of 12 and is published around the world in 9 different languages.
For many people of the world the Bradley Manning case seems absurd and his persecution by the US Government something difficult to comprehend. He was something that the US government is afraid of, he was a soldier with a conscience who exposed war crimes being committed by US forces. The way the US has turned logic upside down by going after one who exposed crimes while protecting those who commit crimes should have the world up in arms. Only an illegal and illegitimate government would protect criminals while persecuting and even torturing a moral and upstanding brave individual who had the courage to stand up and blow the whistle on what he saw, rather than being rewarded and seen as a hero. Those protecting the criminals have decided to make Mr. Manning an example in order to throw fear into the hearts of anyone who would dare to expose their illegality.
The Children Rights Commissioner for the Russian President, Pavel Astakhov, asked the Federal Migration Service head to grant asylum for a daughter of a Russian woman who has escaped from her husband in Norway. The girl can be granted asylum in Russia as a minor needing protection, a lawyer, Roman Stepanov, said to the Voice of Russia. The girl and her mother are currently staying in transit zone of Moscow Sheremetyevo airport in much the same way as exCIA contractor and whistleblower Edward Snowden had for three weeks.
Fonterra, the world leading exporter of dairy products, is recalling a number of its milk products after a food poisoning scare. China, which is the major importer of milk powder from New Zealand was the first country to impose bans on Fonterra products.

Russian Federal Service for Supervision of Consumer Rights Protection and Human Welfare is now investigating whether contaminated products from New Zealand were imported to the markets. Professor of economy at the New School University Max Fraad Wolff talked with the Voice of Russia about the impact of Fronterraban on New Zealands market.

Mr Dave Joyce, the National Health, Safety Environment Officer at The Communication Workers Union, talked with the Voice of Russia about the new policy.
