Yawn. Happens every year.

I would argue that the anti-abortion nutjobs that have hijacked the veggie in Florida are the true "nuttist Christians."

Wow. Usually there is some calmer discussion before someone tosses the posting equivalent of a Molotov cocktail, but you don't fool around. Kudos.

brae that is why we can't have nice things here.

I don't know, I'd say religiously speaking the nuts go:

1. People who blow themselves and/or others up
2. everyone else.

But that's just me.

How disturbed are these people? Crucifixion was a Roman execution technique used to make their enemies afraid by making their armies look brutal and merciless. This is what they're celebrating. This would be like celebrating what Lincoln did for this country by blowing someone's head off.

At least they're have something more lethal than a box cutter if they wanted to rob a gun store to try and save Terri Schiavo.

A giant cross > A box cutter

So then the Irish are the nuttiest Christians?

No, I think we still have them beat.

Let us not forget that Filipinos are Xian because of one of General McCarthy's more insidious anti-communist policies.

They are nutty Xians because the nutty Xians of this country made them that way.
 
2005-03-25 02:50:20 PM
I'd rather they do it to themselves than force it onto other people.

UncleFriendly: So then the Irish are the nuttiest Christians?

To the extent that the Irish troubles are religious as opposed to secular in nature, yes. An awful lot of that mess is not so much religious as your basic vengance.

But still d@mned crazy.
 
2005-03-25 02:56:52 PM
I certainly appreciate the efforts of our Filipino friends, but really, until they have Republicns running their country I don't think they have any business laying claim to being the home of the nuttiest Christians.

not all Republicans are Christians...and not all Christians are Republicans.

need a bigger paintbrush?
 
2005-03-25 03:02:01 PM
I really like when those people in the sand cut their heads open and their childrens heads with machetes and large knives to celebrate (or mourn, hard to tell) the death of the grandson of the prophet. That and when they whip themselves with chains and stuff, now that's really cool.

yet the nuttiest Christians (at least getting their 15 minutes) are either part of or major contributors to the Republican party

/and worse, now feel they are "due" some payback since they feel they single handedly pushed the new terms "mandate"

//2% ain't no "mandate" where I'm from - we call it skin of your teeth
 
2005-03-25 03:05:29 PM
As a Christian I find this completely absurd.

Christ commanded us to pray in our closets and not to make a big show of it.

This is exactly the opposite.


The biggest problem with Christianity today is most Christians.
 
2005-03-25 03:08:20 PM

Have any proof?

They may be the most outspoken, but this article is way nuttier than anything I have seen Christians do here.

This even beats out the "poisonous snake handling" Christians for nutty.

I think you wat to turn this religous flame war (not yet, but it always ends up being one) into a political one.
 
2005-03-25 03:08:26 PM

no, they're just the loudest. Those "bat-shiat crazy conservative christian fundies" are a very small, very vocal minority compared to the number of Christians worldwide...or even in the U.S. for that matter. I am a Christian myself and do not share most of the views of the Republican party.
 
2005-03-25 03:09:50 PM
Wow. I am all for freedom of expression of your own personal beliefs, but this is ridiculous. What are these people trying to prove? This should be a day of reverence and relfection in the Christian community, not a day of reenacting an execution.

or....maybe I was just trying to help defend someone else who was accused of needing "a bigger paintbrush"

and proof as to right wing Christian whackjobs being part of the republican party?

All your cryin don't do no good
Come on up to the house
Come down off the cross
We can use the wood
Come on up to the house

2005-03-25 03:16:27 PM
Yeah, watch out for those nutty Christians ...



My favorite example is the THIRD photo.


"Nuttiness" comes in many forms. Apparently some forms of "Nutty" are more likely ignored than others ...
 
2005-03-25 03:17:44 PM
I have been in the Philippines on Good Friday and watched the processions. Some asshat gets dressed up like Jesus and carries a cross while others whip his bare back. Then he gets his ass nailed to the farking thing. Pwned.
Quite amusing really. Often it is the same jackoff year after year.
I only wish they would leave him up there to die.

No, I just dont see where US politics are relevant in a thread about Christians in the Phillipines. But hey, whatever floats your boat.


Yeah shes a nutjob, but I wouldn't say the nuttiest...

the_gospel_of_thomas: I have never actually seen photos of Ashoura day before. I think I just lost my lunch. And to think that they do this to children. Blah....
 
2005-03-25 03:27:22 PM
All these nutjobs, evangelicals included skip parts of the bible. Where public display of ones faith is farking retarded punishable by trip to hell.

What's up with the Catholics and their idol worship? I thought that was illegal too.
 
2005-03-25 03:27:31 PM
the_gospel_of_thomas Not really that different from the variious bloodbaths in the bible.

You should really open a history book sometime. Almost all Christian Filipinos are Catholic not Protestant like the good ol' USA. They trace their Roman Catholic roots to the Spanish Conquistadors, most notably Ferdinand Magellan and his crew.

Combine the ability to punish yourselves psychologically (Catholicism) with the original tribal Filipino polytheism (including physical punishment and ritual sacrifice) and voila, you get the Easter traditions seen in this article.
