The blood-covered leg of a penitent, resting on a bloodied step during a procession through the streets in the town of Verbicaro, southern Italy on April 2, 2010. The penitents, called “battenti”, or beaters, hit their legs with a “cardillo” (a cork with attached pieces of glass) and walk, bleeding, in groups of three through the streets, stopping in front of all the churches and chapels in the town. The tradition began in the thirteenth century and serves as penitence for Christ’s death.

    3. It’s like “The Passion of the Christ” all over again. What is it about Catholics that they have to obsess about the visceral qualities of Christ’s debasing and execution while missing the philosophical or sociological aspects of the same event?

      what the fuck is wrong with people? i can see a 13th century person doing something this stupid, because the printing press wasn’t invented until halfway through the 1400’s. but people today can read, and books are overly accessible, so why the fuck would they do this?

      not to get all religisophical on anyone (FUCK YOU, IT’S EASTER), but how twisted is it that people are led to believe the total opposite of something? people are fucking retarded. and so is religion. i say this fully believing that jesus rose from the dead, securing my salvation based upon what he did and not on what i’ve done. srry if that pisses you religious people off.

        you’re saying these people are crazy, but you believe in select parts of the fantasy book they live by? dont know whats more retarded tbh. i’d say they are more towards insane, but believing select parts of the bible is just plain ignorance. theres no logic to it what so ever.
