Rise of the Cult of Death

This is disturbing.

I just got this from Pajamas Media, and I think that you’ll like this just as much as I did:

Her shrines can be found in the lairs of the most violent criminal gangs, her worshipers are known to have committed verified human sacrifices, and her cult has spread from secret temples in rural Mexico to almost every large city in America. Santa Muerte — the death goddess of Mexican narco-cults — has arrived in America and established a foothold in our communities that will be impossible to dislodge. While many are rightfully concerned about jihadists crossing our southern border, there is another death cult spreading among us that is just as dangerous as Islamic terrorists.

The origins of the Santa Muerte cult are a mystery even to adherents. One common myth is that a 19th century Brujo chaman (witch doctor) had a vision of the goddess who ordered the creation of the cult. This supposedly happened near Veracruz. However a report prepared by Kevin Freese for the Foreign Military Studies Office points out many devotees claim the Santa Muerte cult has existed for thousands of years in secret, only becoming widespread under the Aztec rule. Worshipers claim that this “saint” is actually the goddess Mictecacíhuatl, who was said to eat the dead and was worshiped by skinning human sacrifices alive.

It’s in almost every major American city?

Wonderful. Just wonderful.

For the rest of the story, go here.
