From my reading and visit down there, I get the impression that the more the victim suffered the better in their eyes.I bought a replica Mayan obsidian sacrificial knife at Chichen Itza in early 2009.
If I ever wanted to have my heart slashed out - and I do not - I certainly wouldn't opt for that, were any choice of implement given.
Gary Jennings. He also wrote The Journeyer which I quite enjoyed - a fictionalized account of Marco Polo's travels, and Thorn, which I found a little more disturbing.I cannot recall the author's name, but there was a most excellent historical novel entitled, simply, "Aztec" that I read many years ago. I highly recommend it.
Nothing good will come of this.Here we go...
2 Catholic churches destroyed in overnight fires in Okanagan
Sacred Heart Church, St. Gregory's Church were both on fire around the same time early Monday
Two Catholic churches have been destroyed after separate overnight fires in the South Okanagan area of B.C.
The Sacred Heart Church on Penticton Indian Band lands was burned early Monday morning, the parish confirmed with CBC on Monday.
The St. Gregory's Church, in the Oliver area on Osoyoos Indian Band lands, was also in flames around the same time.
Catholic Father Obi Ibekwe said the parish would be waiting for results of an RCMP investigation before making further comment.
Penticton and Oliver are roughly 40 kilometres apart.
Just out of curiosity, would you say the same for mosques, synagogues, gurdwaras, temples, etc? Or is your focus entirely on Christian houses of worship? Asking for a friend.
Other than the crime of arson, purging of religion is a good thing.
Apparently the chief of the band where this all started has said he believes that Canada day should go on and people should learn and grow.Manitoulin Island First Nations leaders ask people not to celebrate Canada Day
Done and done. What else can I do?
Really? I guess the girl guides, dog training, AA groups, kids basketball, badminton groups that rent the local church does not count? Nor apparently do the soup kitchens, the senior programs, the overseas youth support and overseas community support they give counts for nothing? How about the choir groups, I guess gospel and other music forms like Motown can dwindle away?
Sponsoring refugees - and doing a much-better job of it than the federal government. Many sponsoring groups still maintain friendships with the families whom they sponsored and guided years ago. Federally-sponsored refugees were, in many cases, pretty much abandoned to their own devices at the end of a year.Really?

Doubt it. Once the religion is emptied out of a person's mind, a void remains which most find hard to fill; there is no longer any higher authority to appeal to in order to settle the matter of what ought to be nor any hope to cling to in adversity except what one creates for oneself. A few can manage this; most break.
I’m not a worshipper but you’re crossing a line. Maybe you don’t like religions but some very good folk do.
