RELIGION GOES TO FAR.
Killing yourself because a book tells you to.
Devoting every Sunday of your life because a book tells you to.
What ever happened to common since, the greatest trick those people ever played was writing a great fiction story.
Im not bashing religion here but cmon some people take it way to far.


First, this is not just "religion" but the case of ONE extremist. Second, it`s common SENSE, not common "since". THird, as a Christian, I have a problem with the whole priest/nun thing anyway. But I am sorry there are Christians out there who are awful people. No Christian should ever claim to be better, perfect, sinless, or more loved by God. If they do, I`m sorry.

THis "Christian" messed up. They`re human. It sucks. I`m sorry.

It`s sad how the devil contorts good things into bad. Christian belief in it`s raw form and without the rituals and practices is the ultimate ideal of love, forgiveness, prayer, and peace. It`s only people who twist it into something where a nun could be crucified. Everyone makes mistakes and sins, a perfect Christian would`ve prayed for her instead of taking physical action. It`s just too bad there is no such thing as perfect. People can only try to do the best they can.

Well, now I feel it necessary to defend my own personal religious beliefs.
I believe that God is a giant with a long, flowing white beard who sits in the clouds and has a real deep voice. He appreciates when I take away people`s personal freedom in his name. He especially loves when I kill people in his name, as long as it`s not unborn babies. You might call me crazy, but then you`d be a bigot who doesn`t respect my religous beliefs.

If they knew she was schizo why did they think she was possesed? I mean I could understand if she was saying really bad satanic things and was doing stuff you would see in the `Exorcist` but they "assumed" she was possesed which is ok but why did they have to crucify her? :-? simply stupid

Why do something like this to exorcise the `demons`? When Jesus did it he just drove it out by sheer will; why not try that?

Crazy backwards Muslims? I know that was a joke, but its still offensive that religious fundamentalism is assosciated primarily with Islam. It is a very small percentage of my religion that commits these acts, please do not punish the rest.

Man, from a religion who`s main ethic is love, sometimes I`m ashamed of other christians when they do stuff like that. I mean honestly, how can you show love to someone by gagging them, binding them to a bloody cross and leaving them like that?

Woohoo my 1st post! They probably crucified her because they didn`t realise about her condition and were putting her in the same situation as Christ, possibly with the idea that if the Devil or a demon were being compared to Christ in such an obvious way, it would cast them out. We don`t know what else they tried to remove the Devil, perhaps this was a last resort! And if the priest dude thought she was possessed, then of course he`s going to say it`s better for her that she died.

OZKR, how do you know they are making it up? YOU are making that up! Butcher is retarded for many reasons. MC Sugar`s arguments are flawed and stupid. This was a sad incident but certainly not for the reason most of you present.

they say that the nun had skitofrenia and what about the fcking priest how would he like it if we did that to him and how can he just watch a part of god die in front of his face. priest go on about the violence in the world and he killed someone himself it gets me really mad.

Bucher, You Can`t Claim It To Be False, As I Don`t Think Anyone Could Just Confirm It`s True. Don`t State That Something Isn`t True When You Don`t Know. Or You Could, Because You Want To. Either Way.
Anyway...Crazy, Crazy Religion.

Ok, thats just extreme! Everyone knows Jesus was crucified along with many other as a form of punishment and/or death. Why would being crucified cast out a demon, or whatever that woman had?
& Bucher, what book would that be? have you even read this book?

what sickens me is after knowing she had a mental illness which causes dillusions and hysterics he still thinks the exorcism benefited her. Hopefully justice will be served.
