Just curious, what did he do with his eyeballs after
ripping them from their sockets.

I would have eaten them, otherwise it is wasteful.

Or perhaps even thrown them at the gocking parishioners.
OOps he would have missed any ways, on account of being suddenly blind.

Does it really take superhuman strength like the article says? In self-defense class I was taught you can just stick a thumb in there and scoop it out.

Also, I hope he learned listening to voices telling him to tear his own eyeballs out is a bad idea. I wonder why he even told the surgeons about the voices, it's not like that's a valid reason or anything and they might think he was crazy.

That makes me think he has yet to see the error of his ways.

An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind

Church: It's all fun and games until somebody loses an eye.

Matthew 18:9 "And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire."

I'm not sure that was suppose to be literal...

How can an eye offend you?

Maybe the voices were coming from his eyes and said something bad about his mother?

This is crazy, reminds me of a story I heard on TV or somewhere. Some guy was locked up in jail for the night and he was acting all crazy on PCP, and he told the guards that if they didn't give him a cigarette he would rip his eyes out. Well they didn't give him a cig, and you know the rest of the story.

The guy surely must have had a vision while in church. Maybe the voice told him to roll his eyes in frustration.

PS - Since my username is seachange I felt compelled to comment.

I just can not SEE how everyone is so callous to this man's plight.

A crazed blind man believing in standards, faith and the noble ideas of christianity, is less blind than the hateful arrogant atheists in this thread.

Oh wow. I worked with a man who did this. He quit, and then came back to visit months later missing his eyes. He was a really laid back guy, one of the few people at work I could talk to about any genre of craziness. He said he did it because he wanted to truly see.

Must have a bunch of straight edge, no fun peeps here!


Don't you know this is the hip thing to do now? Billy Madison started this with pants peeing in the mid 90's...........I can just picture him now, telling all the lame wads "You ain't cool, unless you pull out your eyes!!"
Dig it?

Italy,very recently,a man heard voices.They told him to rip his own eyeballs out.He then did infact gouge his own eyeballs out of the sockets.Apparently,this is quite a feat of strength,in addition to being an unusual undertaking.This man may be dangerous,I would keep an eye out for him.

But seriously people, blind faith in any religion or ideology can be very dangerous.

This was a statement taken literal done in reality that is in the Bible. Interesting enough the religion that does take all laws serious is judaism. That being said the bibical interpretation to this would be that the man "clearly possessed in my opinion* did what Jesus said in the literal sense.

from what i understand, his eyes were probably misleading him anyways, one was lookin for planes, the other was lookin for snakes and he got tired of the conflict...........
