Set to destroy organised religion.

Oh dear, what a pickle! Richard Branston, owner of Virgin Atlantic, Virgin Records and Virgin On-the-ridiculous is set to sue the Catholic Church over copyright fraud.

Branson claims that for more that 2000 years the church have been using his copyrighted brand name 'Virgin' without his prior knowledge or permission.

A spokesman for Mr Branson said today, "The church have been calling Jesus's mum the 'Virgin' Mary since founding their religon and we're not going to stand for it anymore."

If Branson wins the case, and many believe he stands a good chance, it will cost the church billions of pounds and mean that the church no longer will be able to say that Mary was a virgin.

The implications of this are monumental, as it means that the church will not be able to claim the miracle of immaculate conception and, ultimately, Christ therefore cannot be the son of God.

Branson has said the collapse of organised religon would be 'a shame' but that people can always join his new range of 'Virgin' churches which are being launched next week.

"They will be run like fitness clubs," said a spokesman for the group, "There will be a start up membership fee of 50 quid and we will be worshipping the almighty dollar"

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
