Ritual Cow Slaughter For 2010 World Cup

cow_sacrificeThe 2010 World Cup Games, scheduled to be played in South Africa, plan to anoint each of the tournament’s stadiums with a ritual cow sacrifice, its proponents are calling a “truly African” move.

“We must have a cultural ceremony of some sort, where we are going to slaughter a beast,” explained the Trust’s chairman Zolani Mkiva.

“We sacrifice the cow for this great achievement and we call on our ancestors to bless, to grace, to ensure that all goes well. It’s all about calling for the divinity to prevail for a fantastic atmosphere,” said Mkiva.

Animal rights advocates are not so keen on the idea. The National Council for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (NSPCA) has written to Fifa over it.

The plan does have support within the ANC-run government. Sicelo Shceka, the co-operative governance and traditional affairs minister, said, “The World Cup will be on the African continent and we will make sure that African values and cultures are felt by the visitors.”

Next year’s World Cup Games will be held for the first time in Africa, and organizers are looking for ways to put the “old” South Africa to rest once and for all, and showcase a “new” South Africa.

“There is great power in this (South Africa’s hosting of the¬†World Cup),” said United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon.

“It is a time to present a different story of the African continent, a story of peace, democracy and investment,” he said.

    What a crock of shit! There's a reason why Africa is bereft of investment from the civilized world. That whole continent is plagued with:

    1. State-sponsored genocide,

    2. Slavery,

    3. islamic terrorism,

    4. Poverty,

    5. Disease,

    6. Illiteracy,

    7. Starvation,

    8. Corrupt governments and brutal dictators,

    9. Crime.

    You'd think that for a continent like Africa with its abundant resources that it would be prosperous and peaceful. But with "cultures" like those, it's the exact opposite. There's a reason why it's called the Dark Continent.

    Just take a look at the barbarians in that pic slaughtering a cow because they opened up a stadium.

    How is it that you don't see people from the West sneaking into Africa, but there are HUGE invasions of Africans sneaking into the West?!

    And the Libs keep spewing the lie that all cultures are the same.

    Celebrate diversity!

  • This is the same reason why Israel has been forced to build a security fence to shield themselves from barbaric vermin with the filthy towels around their heads. Mohammedans have been slaughtering innocent Jews for centuries and when the Jews dare to defend themselves the mohammedans complain. Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!!!!!! All ragheads should be waterboarded.

  • South Africans should not be given a major sporting event if they can’t behave in a civilised manner. No wonder the country’s in such a state.

  • What do you think about the way farmed animals are treated in the West. Isn’t it equally barbaric? Barbarism is being practiced everywhere in the world and is at at the largest scale in the USA and Europe
