Legal Ruling: Rael Is Airy Fairy
File under: Satscams and Wackadoo Gurus
UFO guru, pimp and playa' Rael, the French guy who claims to be the half-brother of Jesus and appointed savior of the human race, has lost a libel case he brought against a Canadian newspaper columnist:
Dismissing an $85,000 damage suit against columnist Denis Gratton and Ottawa Le Droit, Justice Maurice Laramee said arguments by Claude Vorhilon, who calls himself Rael, are "airy-fairy."Vorhilon should have run one of his famous recruitment ops on the guy. We imagine he would have caved after the 23rd pair of UFO hotties showed up at his door, naked and playing with one another.
"It is strange, to say the least, that Rael should be offended by terms used about him when they are similar to those he uses when he judges ... followers of the Jewish and Christian religions," the judge wrote in a ruling handed down late last month.
