US Politician Admits Killing A Goat & Drinking the Blood for Sacrifice

It’s mostly worrying to hear that people actually believe in ‘killing sacrifices’ and kill all sort of animals for this purpose in developing communities—but to have a US politician who is well educated and lives in today’s Florida having drunk the blood of a goat as sacrifice is deeply scary.

Last week, “a four year old boy was beheaded by a 35 year old man in a remote part of India. The death was supposed to be a sacrifice to the Hindu goddess ‘Kali’, who was supposed to bestow some divine powers upon this man for his sacrifice,” we reported.

You may say that’s far away in India, a small under developed village with inhabitants far detached from education. But it seems blood sacrifice and the belief that it actually works is not a thing of the past even in highly ‘civilized societies.’ Some educated people who live in an advanced Florida still hold onto this.

After a Florida Libertarian Party candidate for US Senate came under criticism for once having killed a goat and drunk the blood as part of a sacrifice, he has come out to admit this actually happened.

The BBC says Augustus Sol Invictus has admitted he “sacrificed” “the animal as part of a pagan ritual, but it was not “sadistic” as some of his critics have alleged.”

Augustus told Associated Press that; “I did sacrifice a goat. I know that’s probably a quibble in the mind of most Americans,” he told the Associated Press news agency.

“I sacrificed an animal to the god of the wilderness … Yes, I drank the goat’s blood.”

According to him, this happened in 2013 when he walked from central Florida to the Mojave Desert where he spent a week, fasting. It was when he returned to Florida that he killed the goat for sacrifice.

It surely is a quibble in the minds of most reasonable people and not only just Americans that a Senate position seeking candidate faithfully believes and practices blood/killing sacrifice…

What’s the difference between this man and the Indian child killing-P Tirumala Rao who killed a child for sacrifice? Obviously, apart from one using a child and another other using a goat, the two share a common belief.

Superstition does not have a single location, it dwells everywhere—mostly in the minds of those who opt for faith instead of reason and evidence.

And you know what, he is not only a politician but also a lawyer. He changed his name to-Augustus Sol Invictus, a Latin phrase that means “majestic unconquered sun.”
