I wonder how many goats died in the scuffle, or did they get sacrificed later? Anyway, it aliens or God would watch from afar, they/he/she, would be disgusted. So far for humanity. Most relines serve the purpose to govern or control people and have nothing to do with love & compassion.

Noted without any sorrow for the people. I had tried to leave a comment on Yahoo on how it is time that people stop hiding behind their "religious customs" in condoning their sadistic animal rituals, but of course, they wouldn't print it. Like any real God would be appeased by actions of cruelty and suffering against his or her creations!

Absolutely Andrea! I concur!

The moral of the story is: DON'T sacrifice animals!

What hope?? Sadness envelopes our planet's heart like the darkest hour of the night shows no light!

Noted, why don't these people understand that God or their "whoever" doesn't want the blood of any animal as a sacrifice. In their stupidity they sacrificed both human & animal...what a waste!

This is horrendous. It is one reason why I never liked to read the Old Testament - too many animal sacrifices.
