The ORIGINAL gathering place for a merry band of Three Percenters. (As denounced by Bill Clinton on CNN!)
I've heard the theory that this was just a re-emergence of some of the pre-columbian rites that the Dominicans did their best to stamp out. Many of these northern states hold higher concentrations of native populations where the brand of Catholicism practiced wouldn't be easily recognizable in Boston or Philly. They blended away just enough of the indigenous stuff to placate the friars.The Aztecs, Toltecs and Mayas did have a flair for rolling heads down stairs, among other things. You have to think, what was it that Cortez and the conquistadores, who were not to be confused with some frail and whiney girl scout troup, witnessed that made them stop what they were doing and tearfully beseech God for help?Some Bad Things.
It is only a matter of time before they rediscover the Catherine Wheel and start making narco- nesting -matryoshka -dolls out of each other .
(quote)I've heard the theory that this was just a re-emergence of some of the pre-columbian rites that the Dominicans did their best to stamp out. Sorry. The tendency to torch and torture for dramatic effect comes with human nature world wide, and has existed throughout recorded history. The Spanish (and other European Catholics) were burning heretics, witches and the politically inconvenient alive in the town square as a religious and political statement centuries before they met the tribes of the New World. Politics/religion make a dandy excuse for such behavior, but the real reason to reach for the matches and scalping knife has allways been POWER, and MONEY.
