If proof were ever needed why religion is bad for you, look no further than the Philippines this Easter, as reports come in that dozens of people have ignored government warnings and have re-enacted the crucifixion of Jesus.
Yup, some people have seven-inch nails hammered into them to atone for their sins, as part of the Easter ‘celebrations’.
For starters, it beggars belief that the powers-that-be had to issue the alert in the first place, but at least 20 people did re-enact the crucifixion of Christ on Good Friday, undergoing whipping and nailing.
What have these people done that they feel the need to go this far to atone?

Also – if these people feel compelled to drive nails into themselves, doesn’t that constitute pride (a deadly sin) and a pleasure of the flesh?
Very good, Cliff!
