"On the way into the temple, a laneway of stalls sells flower chains, incense, fruit, and toys for the children. It’s stunning and colourful, even in the faded light before sunrise. The stalls also sell chickens and goats for those families who did not bring their own animals with them. The chickens’ feet are tied to the tops of crates with twist ties, the goats tethered to the sides of the stalls. We walk past families buying animals who will wait with them in line – moving slowly closer to the smells of blood and butchering – then be washed, blessed and sacrificed." - Sayara Thurston, We Animals writer

    This is absolutely disgusting- I don’t care what your culture is, what you religion is- traditions like this make me absolutely sick and it’s further proof that humans are brainwashed sheep- absolutely disgusting.

    So heartbreaking. Some traditions and rituals really need to be left in the past. It’s ok to progress and rethink such things. I’m sorry to all the innocent creatures who are murdered in the name of religion 💔

    Why would any sort of deity want us to spill the blood of another living creature in their name? I am not religious, but I would not worship a god that condones this . I don't care what the religious, please stop the endless murder😭

    Crying and violently ill reading that short testimony and imagining what it must have been like witnessing that scene. With those unexpecting, trusting souls. Literally had to get up and walk away from the people around me. We live in hell. This earth is hell. Populated by human monsters. 💔
