The message of the crucifix

The most important message of a crucifix was how unspeakably cruel supposedly sane human beings can be when under orders from a superior authority. —Eugene Debs Hartke

    It is remarkable how MANY ‘saviors’ were virgin born, miracle working, crucified & resurrected over two millennia ago. Quite a few more ‘saviors’ were hanged, poisoned or impaled. The 4th century Council at Nicaea were smart to have their savior crucified. Who’d want to wear a Jesus on a stick around their neck ?

      Catholics wear crucifixes to be reminded of the cruelty they did to the “savior” and “son of god”, I do support you in the fact that they´ve killed a lot of people in worst ways through out history and Jesus does not deserve to be glorified just for dying in a cruel way. Jews also brag about how many of the people were killed in WWII, what they don´t know is that the same amount of catholics and blacks were killed in battle, probably didn´t die as gruesomely as jews, but the fact is they died. so my pont is your comment is very true but you also have to give catholics a little credit, all the religions have suffered, ones more that others but they have suffered, religion and faith is implanted in human nature, we just have to live with the fact that now everyone thinks likes us cause every human being is unique in there on little insignificant way.

    85 years ago, I was ‘a cradle Catholic’, raised & schooled Catholic. Although I considered bible stories as just ‘stories’, I didn’t depart the flock until my Navy days. I am amazed & appalled at how many people, including some relatives still believe all those fables. Religions are very largely a matter of geography & parentage. If you were born in the Middle East to Muslim parents, what do you think would be your religious beliefs ? Ditto India, etc.
