They sacrifice and torture animals—so they shall reap what they sow. The conditions they live in–shall prevail until they seek a higher path. A path which seeks to preserve not destroy and torture. I have no pity for a man who does not honor life…in all forms..yes there is a God but these people do not practice love or service to others…so they too shall bear the wrath of there destiny

Do you think nothing “barbaric” has come from the history of any culture or religion? One more immature christian idiot the world must tolerate while they tolerate nothing. Go ahead to Bolivia and try to live in those conditions everyday, see if you believe your God still even exists.

I think it is a very profound form of religous expression and should be tolerated around the world. Animals are not part of the same moral community as humans and should not be entitled to the same rights. As such, humans should view animals as nothing more than their property. If they choose to kill an animal for religous purposes, all the more power to them…

Why is that “barbaric”? If you are proposing that all meat be removed from mans diet, then at least the argument would have some merit. Otherwise, let these hard working people do what they need to survive, both mentally and physically, in such difficult conditions…

It’s not like the llamas are giving up their life of their own free will.

I hope that the economy of Bolivia will some day improve enough so that these miners can find better jobs and, more importantly, receive a better education so that they understand the blood of an animal or the Virgin Mary will not keep them safe in a mining job. Only better equipment and stricter, enforced, extraction practices can do that.

Our comfort, protection and salvation comes only by accepting the Lord Jesus Christ as our Savior and believing that He shed His blood for us. Sacrificing these poor creatures does nothing but kill.
