I love John Safran, but what he did on Good Friday I think was stupid. Nevertheless, when it is shown on his new TV series, I won't be able to help but watch.
The silly bugger nailed himself to a cross with a bunch of other silly buggers in the Philippines. He was said to "moan loudly" as the nails were driven into his palms. His wooden cross was hoisted up for 5 minutes then he was reportedly taken down and given medical attention.
Did I say he was a silly bugger? But I guess it will make good TV footage.
Safran has had two series on SBS looking at the practices of different religions. John Safran vs God in 2004 and Speaking in Tongues in 2005. He also presents Sunday Night Safran on Triple J with the un-priestish priest Father Bob.
