Queering the Stations of the Cross(es): Jesus is nailed to the cross

 

In February, the news surfaced that the CEO of American Title Services committed suicide using a nail gun.

A coroner’s spokeswoman Thursday said Talley was found in his garage by a family member who called authorities. They said Talley died from seven or eight self-inflicted wounds from a nail gun fired into his torso and head.

So horrific and disturbing. Jesus agonized on the cross for hours while today it takes seconds.

These nails pierce our world with violence, hatred, and pain.

These nails perpetuate white supremacy.

These nails must be melted down, it’s already too late.
