So, do you self-flagellate ?
Today, in yet another humorous move, the Vatican announced that apparently Dan Brown had it right, and
Opus Dei does indeed run the Vatican. The ex-Fox News reporter, Greg Burke, himself a self-admitted flagellator,
and member of Opus Dei, was installed in the office of Tarcisio Cardinal Bertone, (the Secretary of State), as a
trouble shooter.

Last week Bertone was quoted as saying "they're making us look like a Dan Brown novel".
He is also a prophet, donchaknow.

Some members of Opus Dei practice self-flagellation, a practice of beating or whipping oneself
to grow closer to Jesus.

"This voluntarily accepted discomfort is a way of joining oneself to Jesus
Christ and the sufferings he voluntarily accepted in order to redeem us from
sin," the Rev. Michael Barrett, a priest of the Catholic Opus Dei, wrote on the
group's website in 2006. John Paul II and Mother Teresa both used the spiritual
practice.

Burke says self-flagellation is part of his personal practice as well, saying
"I try to."

OK, I owe KC an apology. These people are waaaay crazier than Calvinists.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.

I've been in Bahrain a few times for 'ashura' when they beat themselves bloody with various weapons to atone for the murder mohammed committed.

There's one area in the city where this takes place (as well as out in the villages) expats and everyone not involved are kept away by police. Most years someone quietly dies afterwards.

The sickening thing is seeing really young boys being taken there by their fathers.

Well... Blush

Had this wonderful toothache for five months, testing my faith in my Gwynnies... and I love my Gwynnies! But now I got this hole in my mouth with shards and stuff, that doesn't hurt. I can understand the concept, because when there's a buncha pain, shit's real; but then again, I'm a certified psychopath. Big Grin

Do you work for a lube company? That's the second time since yesterday you've recommended lube to me. I suppose it's OK as long as you don't work in the testing department... Ex pastor semper a liquid novi...
