FC: Santeria Santeria how it

1: -Caribbean religion -originated in Yoruba (African) indigenous religion -combined with Catholic elements -spread from South to Central and then North America

2: African slaves, transported to the Caribbean, were forcibly baptised.

3: Saints were equated with Orishas as an aid to memory.

4: Santeria is a respectful and devout religion, in which Orishas are worshipped lovingly with prayer and sacrifice.

5: Altars to the Orishas may include statues, candles and beads. | Bowls and vessels for offerings are other important components.

6: Some elements of Santeria may seem strange to believers of non-African faiths: the colorful beads, the art forms . . .

7: . . . and above all, the sacrifice. The energy contained in blood of an animal sacrifice opens a channel of direct communication with the Orishas.

9: - Euless, TX, May, 2006: Santeria priest Jose Merced forbidden to sacrifice (neighbor complained) - "I don't like any kind of odd thing happening. I mean, I don't know? Maybe that's where they start and then go further with dogs and cats," the unidentified neighbor said. - Merced applied for a permit, was denied. "The police said, 'If I come back here, I'll arrest you and fine you.' That's being tolerant?" - 1993 Church of the Lukumi Babalu Aye, Inc,. et al. v. City of Hialeah
