Hundreds turned out for the annual “Way of the Cross” procession over the Brooklyn Bridge on Friday — Good Friday, to Christmas.

The day commemorates Christ’s crucifixion, whereas Easter Sunday marks Jesus’s resurrection from the dead — a central belief of Christian faith.

And if you want to check out an Easter Egg hunt, head for the Greenpoint Reformed Church [136 Milton St. at Manhattan Avenue in Greenpoint (718) 383-5941], 12:15 pm

Nothing beats marching down the street holding an instrument of tortuous death. Always puts a spring in my step.
From an interview with the Bishop of Bruges: "Sex with the first nephew, he said, started as “a game” when the boy was 5 and lasted 13 years. “I had the strong impression that my nephew didn’t mind at all,” 74-year-old Roger Vangheluwe said, smiling. “On the contrary. It was not brutal sex. I never used bodily, physical violence.” He said he abused the second boy for “merely over a year.” He did not think any of this made him a pedophile.

Why did they let a black guy hold the cross - is that really the kind of message the church wants to send?
