Obama! Kenya! Tribe! Human Sacrifice!

Shocker. Brian Reilly reveals: in March 2012 Mike Zullo was speaking to a group of influential Christians (plus Reilly and his wife) that he had asked Reilly to assemble. Zullo told them that he had received information that when Obama was in Kenya with his tribe, he attended a human sacrifice.

You can hear the story from Reilly himself at the end of the RC Radio Show, September 24, 2014. Unfortunately the show ended in mid sentence, with the most important question dangling: Did Mike Zullo pick up the check at Denny’s?

    I am reminded of a scripture from the Bible that I see parallels the birthers and Zullo:

    “My people consult a piece of wood,”

    (NRSV) Hosea 4:12a

    I seriously doubt that, he has never shown enough intelligence or capability to be to be doing web searches, he’s not Orly Taitz after all. Someone had to have given it to him, after explaining it to him repeatedly, at a dead drop in the men’s room at Maricopa Park in a plain vanilla envelope.

    I’m a converted Brian Reilly fan.

    Even if he very well could have been the single catalyst that allowed Shameless Joe Arpaio to raise enough money to win another election against his most vigorous challenger in 20 years.

    Because if Joe hadn’t raised millions of dollars on the backs of birthers across the nation, as a result of Reilly’s misguided brainstorm that resulted in the Cold Case Posse investigation, Maricopa County residents might have gotten rid of the Arpaio scourge, and begun its community healing once and for all.

    But Mr. Reilly has shown himself to be a reasonable man of honor, having accepted facts for their truth. He’s taken a moral stand once the facts were revealed to him, and has steadfastly held true to his course.

    It is the reasonable Republicans like Reilly and John Woodman who I’m counting on to smack some sense into the extremist radicals who are running the GOP.

    Otherwise, America’s two-party system is likely doomed.

    There is no evidence which proves it was scrubbed which proves it is true, right?
    Maybe it’s among the sealed college records, in the section where it says “Did you ever attend a human sacrifice ceremony?” and Obama checked the “Yes” column? Please Prof. Dr. Zullo, investigate!

    I personally read that story as a parable against human sacrifice, God saying in effect “I desire faith rather than sacrifice.” There are explicit criticisms of child sacrifice in the Bible, as part of the practice of worshiping idols, such as this from Jeremiah 19

    “They have built also the high places of Baal, to burn their sons with fire for burnt offerings unto Baal, which I commanded not nor spoke it, neither came it into My mind.”

    See also 2 Kings 17.

    Well, then there’s the less-known story of Jephthah, who promised to sacrifice his daughter, and did. As far as I know, nobody takes that as a sign that God likes human sacrifice, but it does take a bit of interpretation to avoid that conclusion.

    What is most interesting about the telephone game, is how, over time and repeated cycles, the story morphs from reporting what actually happened (if the game actually started from factual retelling, that is!), to what allegedly happened, to, finally, what the group playing the game expects to hear happened .. thereby revealing the stereotypes and biases of the group that have influenced the transformation of the story.

    Of course people in Africa are primitive cannibals. Bones in noses and living in squalor. Everyone (in wingnut echo chambers….) knows that!

    In his collection of essays, “The Mythic Dimension“, in the essay “Renewal Myths and Rites of the Primitive Hunters and Planters”, Joseph Campbell describes the mentality of the cannibalistic ritual. After describing a particularly vivid puberty ritual from New Guinea where-in a young girl, having endured several days of ritual intercourse

    and while the youth chosen to be the last embraces her, the supports of the logs are jerked away, and the platform drops to a great boom of drums. A howl goes up and the dead girl and boy are dragged from the logs, cut up, roasted, and eaten.

    This savage ritual is typical of the world of the Great Goddess, who is at once the womb and tomb of the universe. And even where the victims are not boys and girls but animals – pigs, for example, goats or bulls – the victim is never an offering in the sense of a gift offered to some god but is the god himself.

    Campbell goes on to show that the example from New Guinea is not unique – it is echoed in mythology all around the globe; in Egypt and in Sumeria; in Europe and in America; in Indonesia and in India. The idea that from death comes life is not a curse, it is a wonderment, and has been acted out to reinforce that wonderment from time immemorial. The evidence is that originally the local king was sacrificed as the god each year. Eventually, kings worked out that substitute sacrifices would work just as well, so priests or other holy persons could take their place. Then the priests decided that animals would work. But always the sacrifice is not a gift TO the gods, the sacrifice IS the god.

    In Christianity, Christ has taken the place of all other sacrificial ‘victims’. His place is, once again, not a gift TO God but God himself (thus the necessity of the Trinity). While in Protestantism, the wafer and the wine have reduced to being symbolic of that sacrifice, in the Roman Catholic Mass, through the Miracle of Transubstantiation, the wafer IS the flesh and the wine IS the blood of Christ, in exactly the same way as the flesh and blood of the ritually sacrificed couple in New Guinea becomes the flesh and blood of their god.

    Keith: in the Roman Catholic Mass, through the Miracle of Transubstantiation, the wafer IS the flesh and the wine IS the blood of Christ

    I’ve never understood the desire to physically consume one’s god anyway, even if all subtexts of cannibalism are ignored. “Hey, you can’t make an image of me, but eating me is fine.”
    While I was some sort of a believer when I was young and didn’t know better, I already knew to stay away from religious rituals.

    The ritual sacrifice is MUCH older than proscription against the making of graven images.
