  1. “Is the Animal’s Terror Worth it?
    Slaughter should be done humanely. There, I’ve said it. Bringing an animal to a ritual is anything but humane. You have taken it away from its environment and stuck it with a bunch of weird looking people who are chanting and praying. Some animals, like goats, are highly intelligent. Many goats I’ve owned rival dogs in intellect. And you’re going to put them through this? Way to go!

    No, this is NOT humane.”

  2. I can’t erase my previous comment. I meant to copy and paste what I wrote to Sannion’s blog here as well….because this guy makes no damned sense.

    I just want to point this out:
    “But these guys have a purpose to feed me. And if I dedicate them to my gods, I do it without ceremony.”

    So uh…he’s sitting here arguing against sacrificing animals to the Gods…while sacrificing animals to the Gods.

    Also:

    Why? Because killing an animal generally-speaking would, by his rubric, take the animal from its environment. Why is it where the Gods are concerned suddenly “Oh no! The poor animal!”

    You’re killing the fucking thing either way.

    If the animal dies wrong you’re fucking doing it wrong whether you’re sacrificing the animal or not. “Putting them through this”, what, killing them? You’re taking their life. Moralizing about it in this manner is just self-righteous posturing at this juncture, especially when you’ve already talked about sacrificing the animal to the Gods anyhow.

  3. One of my readers sent this to me anonymously in response to “rational” Heathen’s anti sacrifice post and I couldn’t agree more:

    “No really, fuck them.
    Fuck them and all like them.

    Fuck the double-speak, fuck the snide bullshit.
    Fuck the talking out of both sides of one’s mouth.
    Fuck this tradition-desecrating bullshit.
    Fuck the ‘alternatives’. If you’re doing a blood sacrifice it is because there is no alternative.
    If the Gods want a blood sacrifice, ante up or stop fucking playacting.
    If people can’t stomach that their Gods might want the same blood, bone, marrow, flesh, and skin that we want to work with, eat, and use, then maybe stop pretending to give a flying fuck about what the Gods want, because it seems to me if the Gods truly did make that demand these people would fucking walk away like the shit-heeled coward they are.
    A blood sacrifice is not a painting. A blood sacrifice is not a poem. A blood sacrifice of an animal’s life is not me pricking my hand. If the Gods demand, utterly demand, a goat in sacrifice for doing for me, or if it becomes an expectation, then somehow, I will get that for Them. That is my fucking part of Gebo with Them.”

    I think that about sums it up.

    • I would have to agree with that, especially the double-speak and snide bullshit.

      I do have to add that sacrifices range from the blood sacrifice to other things. If you like writing poems, then it is not a sacrifice. Giving up the I-phone would be. The point is that it is something that will honour the Gods and is what They want.

      Mars usually receives a bull, a sheep, and a pig. I live in the city. Obtaining those animals and sacrificing each is problematic. I use divination to ask Mars what He would want from me, and usually He tells me something else to sacrifice. But if He wants his traditional sacrifice, I will have to work on it to provide these animals.
