It's interesting to read the commentary from the source article. He does this out of love, and his detractors demean him perhaps out of spite. The doer vs. the critic. Who is reflective of civilization's highest ideals?

Wasting ones time be it in the name of love or any other name is not very smart.There is no spite behind my view of what he does or believes,i just think he is a attention whore.

This reminds me of a quote:
" He was such a devote Christian, he will not be happy til he is crucified."




PS: to whom it may concern, its just a quote, please do not take it literally!!!!

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.

When ones religious beliefs consume and waste 26 years that could have been spent helping others it can be classified as a mental disorder.

Yeah, that guy is clearly eccentric, delusional, and has an extreme form of OCD.

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.
