Jesus Thinking Those Guys In The Philippines Are Sort Of Missing The Point

SAN FERNANDO DE PAMPANGA, PHILIPPINES—Devout Catholics in the Philippines are whipping, beating, scourging, and crucifying themselves today, as they do each Good Friday during their festival known as Maleldo. And, as He does every Good Friday, according to sources, Jesus is thinking those guys are sort of missing the point.

“I endured all that whipping and scourging and beating and everything, leading up to my agonizing crucifixion, you know, so my followers would not have to go through all that,” sources quote Jesus as saying. “I suffered in their place—that was kind of the whole thing. I’m thinking it went over their heads.”
