A little kid spotted doing the penitence ordeal in the Philippines during holy week

'Holy Week' in the Philippines has just passed and as usual, a lot of local religious traditions and practices were observed.

The famous among them is the personal and actual nailing on the cross, supposedly, to show one's deepest religious devotion or faith.

Foreigners and local residents alike, come to witness the said yearly religious rite. But this photo of a small, young and fragile kid, obviously a minor, came as a shock. It even prompted people to call the act as child abuse.

What is your take on this? Should kids this young be allowed to join this kind of religious practice?
