    A nun with schizophrenia was crucified (and killed) as part of an Exorcism:

    The worst part is that apparently everyone went along with the wingnut priest.

    I didn't think that these kinda people could do this sort of thing..I mean in Gods eyes, didn't think they were allowed. Isn't God the one whose supposed to make decisions like this...not "the (human)Father thinking she was possessed, so we killed her".
    Its still wrong to me. I mean "Thou shalt not kill" right? And these kinds of people should obey that more than anyone else.

    Right.




    Oh wait, except when the sky pixie whispers in the ear of a powerful man, then it's time for a rampage.

    The enemy as usual is ignorance.

    Seems to be a real problem in this day and age. I agree 100%.

    Seems that someone just wanted to play Follow the Leader.

    Quote the first: "Thou shall not kill"

    Quote the secondst: "Cursed be he who does the Lords work remissly, cursed be he who holds back his sword from blood"

    You do the math - I don't think "God's will" is particularly well documented.

    edit: @ Durf - who are you kidding? We all know what (who, rather) is to blame for this.

    More specifically DOOM and Maryln Manson as they are indeed the root of all evil in today's society.

    Are people in Romania really that unfamiliar with mental illness in this day and age to really believe that she could be possessed?

    I didn't think the place was that backwards...

    The most technologically advanced nation in the world is also home to the most politically powerful band of creationists. :teeth: I think you'll find that antimodern nutballs are pretty evenly distributed around our planet.

    So creationists are nutballs? You do realize there are a quite a few religious people on the forums right?

    OK, good point...... I bet there is something sharp to comment on that, but I think I don't want to start a debate about what the Bible says on topics as resurrecting skeletons in computergames and all......

    What with me never having read the Bible at all..... :D

    "the human skeletons, as they rose out of the ground to defend what is right, also bearing the symbol of great warriors of Light, and good. These warriors, and preist with their glowing hands of God RIIIISE once again to fight evil"....

    see, back to good again.;)
