Priest shows uncut gruesome beheading of Christians to HS students; was he wrong?

A Polish Roman Catholic priest is being heavily criticized for showing a high school class the gruesome video of Islamic militants beheading Egyptian Coptic Christians.

Priest Krzysztof Jeruzalski played the unedited version of the video that was released in February as part of a lesson on Christian martyrdom before Easter – and the school backs his decision.

The priest’s judgement has raised many eyebrows and the hosts of Fox News’ “Outnumbered” debated Thursday over his unconventional approach to make a point.

Andrea Tantaros reminded the show’s panel that the high school students were warned about the video before the priest played it, and were told they could leave the room before it started.

But some argue that a group of 16 and 17-year-olds aren’t mature enough to know what they can emotionally handle.

Tantaros reported that one of the students was reportedly so upset after watching the video they couldn’t sleep at night.

Guest-host Father Jonathon Morris said he would never go so far as to show that kind of video but did admit that he probably hasn’t been talking enough about the issue.

“How beautiful it is that some people would say, even though they’re going to take my head off, I will not deny my faith,” Morris said.

“Maybe to my detriment, I don’t think I’ve been talking about it enough in my church and the school that I have in my parish.”
