/EDIT: The man in the picture was a part of a spiritual act here in the Philippines called "Penance" or "Penitensya" in Filipino. The people part of this ritual is required to whip themselves in order to be forgiven for their sins. After they punish themselves, they kneel in front of a church wherein they will say their prayers.

      It's like a ritual here in the Philippines done by Catholics. It is called "Penance". They consider it as a spiritual act wherein they punish themselves for the sins they've done. :)

      I agree. Some Catholics here are hypocrites also. :)
