Chilean Cult Sacrifices Baby

I saw this a few minutes ago and was just horrified.

ETA: I hadn't read the whole story (on Raw Story, I think) and did not realize it was probably his own child. The baby's mother gave her blessing. WHAT. THE. FUCK!! I think I might be sick.

I haven't seen a news story that's made me actually physically retch like this in a long time :( That poor baby.

And how the hell do you decide that a three day old baby is the anti-Christ? Isn't the anti-Christ supposed to be born of a jackal (at least according to The Omen)?

Sounds like a good, old fashion case of he didn't want the baby, and he decided to get rid of his "problem" under the cloak of religion. Being born with the inability to empathize just made it easier for him. It is for cases like this guy that the expression "Some people just need killing" was developed.

Even more crazy is that this could possibly be a more cultist version of heaven's gate if they haven't murdered the poor baby girl.

I'm surprised they thought a girl could be the Anti-Christ.

I was surprised by this too. :evil-eye: They're disgusting excuses for human beings, but at least they don't discriminate? :angry-banghead: I've lost a few hundred points on the "faith in humanity" scale. ETA: Agreeing with prior post, this was probably the sick fuck's version of the easy way out of parenthood. Not enough swear words in the English language to express my disgust.

The NBC piece said "Everyone in this sect was a professional," Ampuero said. "We have someone who was a veterinarian and who worked as a flight attendant, we have a filmmaker, a draftsman. Everyone has a university degree. "

That makes it scarier to me - highly educated, professional men and women being conned into something so terrible.... I foolishly, stereotypically thought this had to be "peasants" or simple people.

What do you have to do to a mother to make her allow her newborn to be tortured to death?

I'm holding my two week old baby while reading this...I want to cry...omg those people...there are no words... :cry:

I did cry. Then I cuddled my sleeping one year old.

I think the 2 most horrifying things are how they did it & that the mother allowed it or even participated.

A Chilean cult sacrificed a baby because they thought it was the Anti-Christ. How utterly disgusting.

Authorities said the 12-member sect was formed in 2005 and was led by Ramon Gustavo Castillo Gaete, 36, who remains at large.

"Everyone in this sect was a professional," Ampuero said. "We have someone who was a veterinarian and who worked as a flight attendant, we have a filmmaker, a draftsman. Everyone has a university degree. "

I gather hallucenogenics mixed with religion will trump being middle class...

I'm not going to read the article, because it sounds horrific. But I'm wondering why people would think that "peasants or simple people" would be any more likely to do something so terrible compared to the educated professionals ? I don't see how education, status, or income would enter into something like this ? Certainly torturing an infant as a sacrifice isn't part of any groups normal pattern of behavior - and is so far outside the norm that your place in society would seem to be irrelevant.

Because education is supposed to include helping people recognize that tossing a virgin into a volcano won't appease some god somewhere and make things better for the society or group. Part of the Fundie anti education issue is that the evil science lessons will make people less likely to believe as strongly in the Fundie dogma. Didn't we have a thread earlier that had Pat Robertson making the point that the people in the USA were too educated to get as many miracles.

I didn't mean to denigrate "peasants" since I am basically one generation off the land myself but yes, I suppose that people who have more magical thinking (whether they are actual peasants or just superstitious mid-westerners or whatever) can more easily be persuaded of nonsense like "this baby is the anti-christ and we should burn her to death". I guess a lot of people here would think my own thinking was pretty magical since I am a Catholic, but if someone told me their baby was the anti-christ and had to be burned, I have enough education and have been taught how to think rationally, so I would know that it couldn't be true. It scares me that people who have been to university and been given a full, good education can fall for this utter shit and that because of that a little child was so barbarically murdered.

It is one GIGANTIC leap to go from "magical thinking" to burning up your baby ! That has 0 to do with education and everything to do with being sucked into something evil. It isn't about knowledge it's about basic human compassion, which is completely unrelated to education. I am always surprised by the depths of snobbery and classism that pop up here.

Germany had the most educated population in Europe at the midpoint of the 20th century, and large numbers of its educated elite participated in industrial genocide.

Mao was an atheist and his policies slaughtered millions of Chinese in the Great Leap Forward.

Education and atheism are not vaccines against barbarity.

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.
