9 Pics: When Christianity goes BRUTAL! Nailing Live Humans to crosses at Easter!

[This is crazy! In the Philippines the non-whites elect to have themselves nailed physically to crosses as part of proving their devotion to Christianity. Here are actual photos of them tying these people to crosses.

But what is interesting for me, is the physics of putting live people on crosses. Notice how they have to tie their arms at multiple places to the cross. Even more importantly, notice how they have to stand on a small pedestal – on a wedge of wood.

When live actors re-enact the crucifixion they also have to use the same methods. This is the only way to hold a human body up.

Now, check out how these non-white Christians have actual nails driven through their hands and feet and they scream out in pain! There is even a photo of a man lying down who has been flayed brutally. This is crazy stuff!! Jan]

Christians in Philippines nail themselves to crosses and furiously whip themselves as act of penitence in Good Friday ritual

  • Cultures and peoples around the world are celebrating festivals of rebirth and renewal on Easter weekend 
  • In the Philippines, men are whipped with metal chains and nailed to crosses to remember Christ’s suffering 
  • In Jerusalem, people also carry wooden crosses through the streets to remember the miracle resurrection 

Whether you’re getting away for foreign shores or staying at home for a lamb roast with the family, Easter celebrations in Britain follow a familiar pattern.

But around the world Christians mark the festival of rebirth in hundreds of different ways, as these images show.

For example, Christians in the Philippines whip themselves bloody with metal chains and are nailed to crosses to experience the suffering of Jesus as an act of holy penitence.

In Jerusalem, people also carry wooden crosses through the streets to honour Christ’s sacrifice and remember the miracle of resurrection that followed.

Here, Mail Online has collected pictures showing how different cultures mark Easter around the globe.

In defiance: Local Catholic leaders have spoken out to condemn the practice in the past, while health officials also disapprove, but the devout worshippers have refused to give it up

    A theology that even remotely fosters this insanity has to be poisonous.

    This is, in part, due to these peoples mingling Christianity with their inherent Pagan gods and rituals. African churches still have resident witch doctors, American Indian “converts” still tortured whites to death to please their god “Okee”. Yet church people still send aid and money to these people, essentially supporting their paganism, instead of investing in White Christian Culture.

      You’re only partly right. But just as their Pagan religions, their interpretation of Christianity is spurred out of their collective psyche. It simply proves that Christianity was designed to neuter Europeans, not spread over the world.
