4/8/2002: Actual crucifixion



A few days ago we had the images of people doing various things to themselves or their kids for religious ceremony. Here's the kicker of them all: actual crucifixion. I mentioned that I'd read about them, well here is an actual shot of Amparo Santos, the only woman in 21 people crucified on Good Friday in the Philippines. She knew what pain to expect because this is her 15th year of doing it.

Supposedly they use sterilized nails, but... y'know, I can't really figure out why. If you're gonna do it, do it. Don't just stay up for a few minutes, as these folks did, but at least make it an overnight thing.

See the straps around her wrist? That's what's really holding her up. I saw this on a TV special - not that woman, but a man with a mullet. He's tied up on there so he won't fall anyway (and I think he stands on a platform on the cross) and then the nails are driven through their hands (but not their feet).

I agree that it's pretty wimpy overall. Certainly Jesus Christ was a real guy (though I don't believe he was the Son of God), and certainly he was really crucified... with nails through his wrists and feet, hanging there sagging on his own body weight... this seems kinda lame in comparison.

ouch.

Lame? The word I would use is plain frightening. But then again I'm not a member of that particular faith, so I don't know what drives a body to shaft nails through his/her own flesh. I find this picture more disturbing than any of the bloody corpses I've ever seen on shock-sites, and not for the pain she endures, but because of why she endures it.
