I don’t know about you, but if someone gets up and starts “shoutin’ ” a little too much in church, I get nervous and start to lose the message I was supposed to be there for. Can you imagine being in church and the guy next to you just stands up and rips his own eyeballs out?
According to the Huffington Post, a church in Italy got a traumatizing eye full as one of the members of the church, Aldo Bianchini, 46, stood up and gouged out his own eyes. The surgeon that treated him when he was brought into the hospital tried to reinsert the eyeballs, but was unsuccessful. The surgeon said it takes super human strength for him to be capable of this.
But more than strength, this is man against self. He was known to be schizophrenic, so it’s understandable that he was in a fight against another person. If the average person tried to do something like this to hurt themselves, it would be sarcastic to call it “really difficult.” Have you ever tried to intentionally hurt yourself? And you’re probably thinking about a cut or a fall or something…eyes….we’re talkin’…your eyes.
