Christ, You Know It Ain't Easy

People...

The feel good story of this Easter Weekend:

'God made me cancel my own crucifixion'

"SAY WHAT?!"

Here's the story, Lord:
A BRITISH broadcaster who travelled to the Philippines to be crucified on Good Friday for a television programme pulled out of the stunt in tears yesterday — and blamed God for his decision.
"I HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH IT -- "

Hold on:
Dominik Diamond broke down and wept after watching nine Filipinos take their turn to be whipped and nailed on crosses and realising that his turn was next.

“God wanted me only to pray at the foot of my cross,” he sobbed, sinking to his knees and praying as local people and tourists started to boo.
"BECAUSE HE WUSSED OUT."

Obviously.

"SO DON'T BLAME ME."
Five, the television channel, denied it was disappointed that Diamond, a radio and TV presenter and outspoken Daily Star columnist, had decided against being crucified.
"WHERE'S GERALDO WHEN YOU NEED HIM?"

Wikipedia: "(Diamond) is best known as the original presenter of Channel 4's pioneering video gaming program GamesMaster.

Dominik also co-hosted Live and Dangerous, a sports program in 1997, and When Games Attack, aired in 2004."
No date has been set for the broadcast of the programme. If shown, it may have to change its original working title, Crucify Me.

Diamond was set to join an elite group of radical Roman Catholics who mark each Easter by re-enacting the Crucifixion.

Thousands of people gather to watch the volunteers nailed to crosses with metal spikes the size of pencils.
Wouldn't you?
After pulling out of the challenge, Diamond said: “At no point was it ever conveyed that I would definitely be crucified.

At all times in this journey I have been guided by my God in ways I could never have predicted.

Having experienced the humility of bearing my own cross through the streets, I felt my God wanted me only to pray at the foot of my cross.”
"ON SECOND THOUGHT, I WANTED HIM TO BE CRUCIFIED -- "

Right --

"BUT HE WUSSED OUT."

Agreed.

Christ, you know it ain't easy
You know how hard it can be
The way things are goin'
They're gonna crucify me

More later...
