Man Rips Out Eyes In Church

Posted on October 3, 2011


A Sunday Mass turned into a nightmare for churchgoers in Viareggio, Italy when a man stood up-mid service and ripped his eyeballs from his sockets, reports The Daily Mail.

Priest Lorenzo Tanganelli had just started to read the sermon when all of a sudden there was a great commotion.

“This man at the back of the knave started tearing at his face and I realised he was gouging out his eyes. I called for assistance and the paramedics were quickly at the scene and he was taken away, and then I carried on celebrating Mass but a lot of people had left because they were so shocked by what they had seen.”

According to The Mail, the Bible  contains a passage from the Gospel of St Matthew where Jesus tells his disciples: ‘If your right eye causes you to sin, gouge it out and throw it away. ‘It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell.’
