Burning For Jesus

Setting yourself on fire is never a good idea. I am not sure if it matters if you are a stuntman or not. Add Jesus to the equation and realize that we are on a one-way crazy train into the side of the nearest mountain.

The 63-year-old stuntman revs through an 80-foot jump featuring an eight-by-14-foot wall of fire all to “illustrate our walk of life.”

He says the gap he flies over represents the pitfalls of life, while the wall of fire is a metaphor for the Gates of Hell.

The ramp he lands on has a white cross painted on it, which stands for eternity, something Sullivan says all humans are promised if they walk – or ride – the path of God.

I guess it’s true: you can make up bullshit life lessons out of any stupid activity. I think the “gap” that Gene flies over represents the vast chasm where his brain should be.
