I will readily admit that The Philippines does take it a notch too high in their depiction of the Crucifixion of Christ. I am sure there are millions of Catholics like me who are wishing fervently that the Filipinos would tone it down and not be willing tools of the Left who want to portray us as loons and nothing but loons. Over and besides CNN displaying pictures of how Filipinos are getting themselves nailed to the cross and flogging themselves with wooden whips to reenact the Passion of Christ, now we hear that the communist party in the Philippines launched an attack on the troops guarding the religious ritual, which incidentally does not take place all over the country as CNN and other lefty mouths would want you to believe.
Communist New People's Army members attacked government troops securing a Holy Week religious ritual in Butuan City, authorities in the Philippines said.
The attack on the Good Friday ceremony marking the Stations of the Cross resulted in the death of one member of the Civilian Armed Forces Geographical Unit. It occurred on the 44th anniversary of the New People's Army, the armed wing of the Communist Party in the Philippines, GMA News reported.
Lt. Joe Patrick Martinez, commander of the Philippine army's 42nd Civil Military Operations Company, said the morning ceremony was attended by thousands of people.
"These NPAs disrespected the solemnity of the Stations of the Cross," the Rev. Joesilo Amalla of the city's St. Joseph Cathedral said. "They don't know when to stop fighting."......
