    Jeez… are there still people who crucify themselves ? Just for the sake of “feeling Jesus’ Passion” ? I’d like to learn just a bit more about that.

    “I think you’re twisting toes” =D Come on, that’s the most fabulous excuse ever ! I wish I could watch that program here in France ^^ Seems rather interesting in the debunking manners…

    Florent, Good Friday floggings and crucifixions are quite a tourist draw at one of the most devoutly Catholic countries on Earth. Here are some links for you:

    … or you can just Google ‘Philippines Crucifixion’.

    and yes, those are real whips and nails. To be fair, the Catholic church condemns this practice, but I still find it nauseating. To think that religion has convinced these people that they are worth nothing more than to be beaten bloody to be of any value before their god – it is just disgusting.

    Just another thought – about three years ago, I was entering our local parish for mass with my wife (who is from Philippines). In the foyer, just before the flask of holy water, were several photos of crucifixions in Mexico hanging on the bulliten board. I looked at them.. and looked and …. I told my wife I could not go in that building. I felt like puking right there. The catholic church may officially condemn it, but I think deep down, they admire it as a sign of devotion. Why else would those disgusting photos be on the front bulliten board next to the missals?

    ‘They are so poor, but they have such Faith’, I have heard concerning these people. Fuck that. Fuck that and fuck any religion responsible for that abomination on humanity.

    I do believe that day was a reall turning point on my leaving Christianity.

    Excuse the language, but it is sincere and appropriate.

    Nothing so good as a sincerely felt fucking.

    No need to request a pardon of the language :)

    @ HeIsSailing : thanks for the insight =) And not to be excused. It’s the kind of feeling I sometimes get when discussing religion with my parents.

    My mother especially : we had an argument once with my girlfriend, and she – my mother – told that she just couldn’t imagine making Good without God being the one leading her to do so..! She couldn’t see the point in it… And when confronted to obnoxious things like crucifixion, she’ll just say that they interpret it badly, that f*** holy Bible which no one seems to undertand the same way ^^

    So well… whatever the reasons, if a religion just carries people to act like that, it doesn’t deserve to be followed…

    Fuck that. Fuck that and fuck any religion responsible for that abomination on humanity.

    Careful now. We’d hate to have to stone you. ;-)

Attention Christian Readers

Just in case you were wondering who we are and why we de-converted.

de-conversion wager

Whether or not you believe in God, you should live your life with love, kindness, compassion, mercy and tolerance while trying to make the world a better place. If there is no God, you have lost nothing and will have made a positive impact on those around you. If there is a benevolent God reviewing your life, you will be judged on your actions and not just on your ability to blindly believe in creeds- when there is a significant lack of evidence on how to define God or if he/she even exists.
