A reminder for Easter

PZ Myers:
This is what health departments are reduced to in the face of lunacy. Health officials in the Philippines have issued a warning to people taking part in Easter crucifixion rituals.


People are flagellating themselves and nailing themselves to sticks in a public spectacle of stupidity, and health officials are warning them to get a tetanus shot? How about "Stop doing that," instead, or alternatively, "Please use rusty nails and whips clotted with rotting gore so that you'll die sooner and we won't have to worry about you idiots anymore"?

Yeah, so if you plan on bludgeoning yourself or ramming nails through yourself, please do it hygienically.
