-Mexico Destroys 30 Chapels Dedicated to ‘Saint Death’

(-Saint Death -‘Santa Muerte’ via Wikipedia)

 Report: “Mexico City – Mexican federal authorities used bulldozers to bring down more than 30 chapels devoted to “Saint Death” – a figure that is worshipped by drug traffickers – in the northern city of Nuevo Laredo, the daily Reforma reported Wednesday.”

‘Saint Death’ – Santa Muerte is similar to ‘the Grim Reaper’ and is said to be venerated and worshipped by over a million people in Mexico.

As part of the war against the drug cartels, the Mexican authorities began to destroy those chapels and shrines. <<Continued on the Apologetica page>>            *Top
