I saw a program on that, but I don't remember all the details.

I know he went along several streets, slowly, with the cross and thorns before arriving at the execution site.
My uneducated guess would be 1-2 hours. No idea, though.

I think it would have taken me all day...I would have pouted, whined and complained the whole way.  They would have wanted to kill me right away.

I know this is being picky. however isn't mounting the cross on a wheel a bit like cheating? I mean they didn't let Jesus put a wheel on it.
Yeah, that's does kind of take the meaning out of it I think.

Anyone with that much faith has to be admired. No matter what his faith is in.

yep. spotted that, was not going to say anything as I thought "never interrupt her while she is taking her medication" Posted Image

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

'There is a reaction from people straight away, you end up talking and connecting to people you wouldn't normally talk to.

'People start opening up about their own lives and you end up sharing with them something that is most personal.

find people often want to talk, but if people don't want to know I walk on. The love you get from it all is amazing, people will just stop and ask you questions, offer you food and sometimes a place to stay.

I dare say this man, even with his odd behavior, is much more positive and kind than practically anyone in this thread.  Who is he hurting?

The article says he walks all over the world, talking to people, praying with them if they ask, and walking on if they don't want him there. He's not shouting on street corners or smiting people. He goes around the world making friends and trying to connect to other people in the world.

The fiend... :rolleyes:

Embrace the impossible.
