They do a lot worse during a ritual crucifixion reenactment. I forget where.

Let’s not go overboard and start posting ridiculousness.

And it IS a ridiculous act, WHATEVER religious folks do it, ANYWHERE.

Doesn’t the bible say we aren’t supposed to cut ourselves like that?

Associations are significant.

Catholic monks used to do it on occasion as a form of penitence.

*** Catholic monks used to do it on occasion as a form of penitence. ***

When Archbishop Jose Gomez, an Opus Dei member, was Archbishop of San Antonio, he did an interview I saw in which he said he’d practiced flagellation. He described the little whip thing, and mostly hitting his legs with it.

He practiced this self mortification in private.
