(Worthy News) - Santeria — a form of modern witchcraft that fuses Catholic practices and African folk beliefs — is prevalent in Cuba. In fact, according to the U.S. State Department, some sources estimate that as many as 80 percent of Cubans practice Santeria.

But because of generous donors supporting Cuban church planters, a strong body of Christ-followers is growing in this once closed-off country. [ Source: CBN News (Read More...) ]

  1. Catholicism worships pain and suffering. "It" (whom they refer to as Mother Church) glorifies the excruciating. It turns Jesus into the martyr of all martyrs, a saint of all saints. it diminishes him just as Islam does, only in a different way. Islam turns Jesus into just another prophet, at best. Catholicism reduces Jesus into him who suffered best, who did it perfectly. They turn the phrase (verse) to "pick up your cross" and to "Carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ" Gal 6:2 (NIV).

    Oh, they make a big deal out of him. But then they make a bigger deal out of his mother, Mary (Miriam, in the original language). The books of (the various) other saints are too numerous to count. And those given new status as Saints (which are never living people, as the bible states) only grows exponentially. Have a look at some of the newer ones, men now well known for their pedophilia. I'm not making this stuff up. It's all real and true.

    Where there is a masochist, there's a sadist close by. Even if it's at the end of a camera. Know what "Self-flagellation" is? It has a religious name too. It's called Mortification (of the flesh) by the Roman Catholic Church. And wiki says,
    "The Roman Catholic Church has often held mortification of the flesh (literally, "putting the flesh to death"), as a worthy spiritual discipline."

    It's not old or outdated. From The (UK) Telegraph, "One of the most senior Italian members of Opus Dei, the ultra-conservative Catholic movement, has advocated the use of a vicious spiked chain designed for self-torture in the name of God.

    Paola Binetti, a senator in the government, admitted in a television interview that she has used a metal cilice, which is wrapped around the upper thigh for two hours a day and leaves small pin-pricks.

    "It forces us to reflect on the hardship of life and the sacrifices of the mother who has to wake up in the night because her child is wailing," she said.

    Originally, a cilice was a hair-shirt, or any garment designed to cause its wearer discomfort. The metal cilice is the most controversial of the tools used by members of Opus Dei to inflict self-harm."

    And then, some people have trouble figuring out how closely related Santeria is to Catholicism. It's probably one and the same god, only by different names. That's what the Catholic Church has been doing all along. That's why the name of the (supposed) Anniversary of the Resurrection of Jesus, the Christ, is named after one of the oldest and worse goddesses there are, Ishtar aka Easter. She's also been called queen of heaven.

    Come out from her.
