I never cease to feel disgust for what can be done in the name of a god, religion or tradition…
Why always animals have to suffer all forms of torture, barbarity, violence until the brutal murder?
Some of you can explain that to me and cite a single reason?
Non finisco mai di provare disgusto per quanto si possa fare nel nome di un dio, di una religione, di un’usanza…
Perché sono sempre gli animali a dover subire ogni forma di tortura, barbarie, violenza fino alla brutale uccisione?
Qualcuno di voi mi può citare anche una sola ragione?
The movie is very cruel, sensitive people are to refrain from viewing.
“It’s a carnival of cruelty,” Karen Davis, president of United Poultry Concerns (UPC), told The Dodo.

In the practice of kapparot, supplicants swing a live chicken around their heads three times while saying a prayer that translates to: “This is my exchange, this is my substitute, this is my expiation. This chicken shall go to death and I shall proceed to a good, long life and peace.” The chicken is then slaughtered and, traditionally, donated to the poor.
Not many Jews practice kapparot, and an even smaller portion use a live chicken, as a bag of money is an accepted alternative. But the practice has drawn intense scrutiny both from within the Jewish community and without, particularly in places like Brooklyn…

Ugh. These “people” make it really easy to hate them. I suspect it’s all about power and control. They are nothing but evil barbarians.
I thought they were celebrating the Day of penitent… but maybe there are different meaning (during other festivity, christians kill a goat in sacrifice)… but after that, they eat the flesh… in this case, the dead bodies of the chicken are not eaten.
Anyhow, these poor little living creatures should be spared!!!
I feel so sick just looking at the images…
Cito parole di altri: “Gli uomini non fanno mai il male così completamente ed entusiasticamente come quando lo fanno per convinzione religiosa.” (U. Eco)
Grazie per citare uno dei “grandi” della letteratura… la follia religiosa sarà la distruzione (nuovamente) della civiltà, è accaduto da millenni e nulla potrà cambiare il destino della più grande bestia: l’Uomo.
I can’t find a reason, my dear Claudine… I just hope we may be truly human, one day. hugs and xxxxxxx
The horror perpetrated on the helpless (animals or humans)… have no meaning at all. Humans, at this point, have reached the bottom. These are days of sorrow, with wars and refugees being rejected, animal killed without reason, people starving to death…
Having just got back from NY I am absolutely horrified….isn’t America supposed to be civilized with anti-cruelty laws in place? I totally agree with you, there is no reason under the sun for such acts of barbarity! Yet again I despair!xxx
I was shocked too… this was one barbaric practice I didn’t know still existed… worst of all: in the USA and surely spread around the world. Maybe I’m ignorant and very naïf, but I truly can’t put a sense to that. In the Middle Age, it is said, the so called “witches” killed rooster or chicken to please the devil (and sometime the witches after being seen, were likely burned alive). Maybe in some remote village in Africa or in a high valley on the Himalayan’s, such nonsense could be related to some ancestral believing of Holy Spirits… But I never thought NYC would be such uncivilised.
But I ask again: is there anybody who could explain the reason of this killing in the Yom Kippur? I guess it should be the day of penitent… what the hell it has to be the day of horror for thousand and thousand of chicken around the world?
Sometimes I think there should be a “dislike” button. 🙂 Don’t get me wrong, your post is great but I can’t see how to “like” this cruelty. Religions don’t seem to understand the world is changing. I didn’t know about that part of Yom Kipour. Then why does the Church still balk at ordaining female catholic priests? And let’s not get into Islam…
Grazie pelo tuo post. 🙂
Until over this planet will be the power of religions (all of them) there shall not arrive peace. Has been like that since millennia… if we don’t change our paradigms, if we don’t embrace the compassionate and respect’s teachings of the buddhist philosophy we will end up in destroying ourselves.
Have a lovely day Claudine
