    Isis Crucifixions

    Isis Crucifixions-uploadfromtaptalk1410796946478-jpg.

    Do these crucifixions have a religious tie to Christianity, representing the death of Jesus Christ? Is it a mockery? I know its a public show of what happens to those who defy the Islamic state, but is there a christian undertow to it? What do you think?

    Jesus wasn't the first or the last person to die on a cross...

    Perhaps I'm misunderstanding what exactly crucifixion is, but that doesn't look like it. My understanding is that they were nailed to a cross and allowed to die, not killed and then tied to a cross-like structure. Much as many would like to turn that into "crucifixion" so they can claim a christian aspect to it all, I doubt that's the case or they'd be more accurate to such and these would be crucifixions by all aspects, not just displays of dead folks on wooden frames.

    No. Crucifixion has a long history - going back a couple of thousand years - in that region and in the rest of the world. It was even practiced in Japan until the early 20th century.

    They weren't necessarily nailed to the cross. Tying people to it was probably more common.

    Crucifixion, when done properly, only requires the feet to be fixed in a position that is elevated enough so that when the legs tire of pushing up, the pelvis pushes the spine into a curved adding pressure to the diaphram making it hard to breath. The arms or hands are fixed in a position that the shoulders eventually dislocate and the torso adds pressure to the diaphram from above making the suffocation process more pronounced. The subject eventually dies from a slow asphyxiation that takes hours or even days.

    It is my belief that it should be the chosen method of execution for all ISIS members captured in battle.

    I all honesty I don't know. What I do know is that crucifixion is a barbaric practice so it makes sense that the barbarians of ISIS would use it.

    Yeah I know that, but the news is referring to these occurrences as "crucifixions" and the most widely know crucifixion is Jesus Christ. Hence why I was wondering if it was a mockery towards Christianity. Not that he was the first one, just that why publicly parade these men around in this fashion?
