Hard As Nails

Last night on Nightline ABC they had a showcase on Justin Fatica. He has an HBO special documentary coming out called “Hard as Nails.” He is an unordained Catholic priest and he travels around the country speaking to youth at churches and schools. He is a very polarizing person and a very intense speaker. He has people beat him with chairs while telling students that Jesus loves them. He makes students carry a wooden cross so that they can better understand the pain Christ went through. This certainly opened my eyes. I don’t doubt that his heart is in the right place, but I wonder if we really need to go this far. I mean the next step is put a crown of thorns on our heads so that we can better understand. Is all that really necessary? Here is a Nightline article and video.
