How is post-mortem crucifixion a problem? Consider

I don't see this as a problem either. The US supports a religion of human sacrifice allegedly done on a cross so what's the difference between then and now? Ohhhhhh..it's not humane now? But the religion that bases its entire premise is still okay? There's a fine how-do-ya-do! Weeping Facepalm

You guys keep resurecting this thread with your cross references Angry

I think it's great that Canada has elected the Doonesbury cartoonist as Prime Minister. I expected him to look a lot older:

I imagine Chas will be pleased as I know he is a big Doonesbury fan from way back.

I think you have got your religions muddled.

Which religion are you talking about? Christianity? There's nothing in Christianity to support crucifixion. Judaism? I can't recall anything in that either.

Or are you just thinking about the indigenous religion of the United States:

I suppose these people actually do seem to be enjoying themselves so maybe I am wrong and as Chas says, public displays of killings is ok so why worry about the head being amputated. I suppose I am just being a bit of a kill joy:

It's the symbol of saving grace for Christianity, without that event you don't have the sacrifice by Jesus. So it was a fine punishment for the greatest moment of human history in his snark at the Christian view.
