This pretty daring act, in my opinion, those guy playing the apostles and JC got crucified every year.
They clearly take Christianity up a notch.
I think this guy playing JC

See the real deal

The combo

Wouldn't it be interesting if the Pope and Bishops tried this from time to time.

They would almost have me convinced if they did. . . NOT

I would never do this but I don't think it is that terribly odd.

There is a whole subculture in the US that does essentially the same thing for some sort of spiritual reward.

[] Wiki link needs to copy and paste because of what they did...

This link will work from a body modification site (If you want to see other things people do to their bodies you could spend hours there)

From talking to people who do the suspension ( Above link yes people hang themselves up with meat hooks) they get some sort of a spiritual experience from the pain.

I'll stick to meditation thanks.

Your right I guess you could see this as the body piercing, self mutilation, hanging movement.

Take a look at Fakir Musafar and his...................... artwork??? spirituality???

I'm not a fan of Christianity but I wanted to throw that out there before anyone came along and thought it was a Christian only thing.

I think the suspension is no different in either risk or reward from what I can tell.

On a side note, this is nothing compare to the annually ritual that Malaysia or Hong Kong people have every year.

I was stationed there from 1984-86. Me and a group of friends would get a bunch of beer and watch the festivities. Some of those guys would whip themselves into a bloody frenzy. It was insane to watch. The food and drink vendors made a killing though.

Does this prove that the Jesus man did in fact survive his crucifiction?
