Despite your trusted source,

http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/jesus-hoax.html

that is one of many "trusted" pages on this longstanding hoax (circa 1999.)

If you prefer, you can find half a dozen other pages from security
companies and organizations that cover this hoax. The CIAC and also I
believe F-Secure have pages covering hoaxes and this one is found
there.

Please do not email this on to anyone else.
