Animal Sacrifice…

– – Note: This is a potentially upsetting topic not for young viewers. Animal sacrifice is sadly not just an Old Testament thing…it continues to exist in the 21st century.

–Where?–In places like Nepal, where over 200,000 buffalo, goats, chickens, and pigeons were to be sacrificed earlier this week in a ritual to honor Gadhimai, a Hindu goddess of power.  The festival is held every five years, and while criticized by animal rights groups, the festival is defended as a centuries-old tradition.  Animal rights groups carry little power in Nepal…

Animal sacrifice, in contrast,  has a long history in Nepal and parts of neighboring India…

    Animal rights vs. freedom of religion. Sounds like a no-win situation for both sides of the Nepalese arguement.

      Yuppers…both animal rights and freedom of religion (including freedom from religion) are good things. But in my book, religious freedom ends right where my fellow life forms begin!

    I dare you to tell that to those snake-handling Pentecostals in Appalachia.
