I am not one who tells people what God to believe in, nor am I someone who says anything against the religious belief of others. There is a time that I think some of the rituals of religious beliefs cross the line.
First of all, when they happen in my neighborhood and my grandchildren are subjected to strange occurrences. What am I talking about?
Just before our last hurricane scare, there was a foul smell in the air, and the neighbors had a party a prior to this awful smell. I didn't really put it together until some strange things started happening to the neighbors.
First my grandchild witnessed the delivery of livestock to this house, goats and chickens. Next my grandchild saw garbage bags which contained the remains of these animals. The neighbors are wearing strange garments and they don't socialize like they use to. They wear all white and coverings on their heads, strung around their necks are colored beads. A little research revealed that they are practicing animal sacrifice in a religious right that is called "Santeria".
As I continued reading about the ancient practices of this religion I almost understood, but as we progress as a society don't we realise that each life is precious. All I know is that I will be watching for animal deliveries and my first call will be to Animal Services. The kids in the neighborhood often play together and now they are getting really creeped out by the strange thing going on right in front of our faces. I would really hate to have any child witness this horror or indulge in this practice with the neighborhood pets, how do they know what or when this is acceptable. I say never!!!!!!!!!! Fashion statements are not when you cover yourself in blood of any kind. Sick, Sick, Sick. Tell me how to get rid of this horror in my neighborhood!!

    At least your kitties are safe. They use mostly chickens. :) The critters are probably treated more humanely by the neighbors than they are by the meat industry. Think of it this way Mar, you have a local slaughterhouse now. MMMMMMMM makes me want to become a carnivore again.

    In all seriousness, Santeria is a pretty interesting and old religion. Many of the offerings they do are like dark witchcraft...only they don't cast. I am teaching the kids about this too only because there are so many of them practicing near us.
