    The Catholic Church and Santa Muerte are getting ready to throw down for control of Mexico.

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-25032305

    Does God exist? Does the Devil exist? The Catholic church believes they both do - and some priests say they are currently having an immense battle in Mexico.

    To some it may seem extraordinary, but priests say the country is under attack by Satan, and that more exorcists are needed to fight him.

    This attack, they say, is showing itself in the gruesome drug-related violence, including human sacrifice, that has engulfed the country since 2006.

    According to the latest official figures available, at least 70,000 people have died in this period, including gunmen, members of the security forces, and many innocent civilians.

    But, the priests say, it's not just the numbers. The savagery also stands out.

    In recent years it has not been uncommon in many parts of Mexico for children to find dismembered bodies on the streets on their way to school. Or for commuters on busy roads to drive past bridges with severely tortured corpses hanging from them. Scenes from hell.

    God help us, so instead of pedophile preists will we have preist drug lords?

    Better Catholic drug lords than pagan death cultist drug lords.

    It isn't surprising to see catholic priests standing for their convictions, of humanitarian issues. What is surprising is the Church being so involved for control of Mexico.

    I'll have to talk to some friends and see how far the priests in Mexico have gotten involved.

    Catholics don't commit human sacrifice for one thing.

    By who?

    Drawing and quartering is an English thing isn't it? The English were the drug lords of Asia. Who are you to tell them they need to execute themselves?

    China criminalized opium and the English went to war with China because of it. So no, you're not going to be able to get rid of drug lords by executing them like English traitors. It was probably treason in England to oppose the opium trade once upon a time.

    http://www.chron.com/news/article/Mexico-cartel-issues-booklets-for-proper-conduct-1473132.php

    An organized crime group calling itself the Knights Templar is distributing booklets saying it is fighting a war against poverty, tyranny and injustice, publicly appealing to hearts and minds in a part of Mexico where the government claims it has largely taken down the major drug traffickers...

    The booklet says cartel members "must fight against materialism," and respect women and children. It prohibits them from killing for money and says, "for all members of the order, the use of any drugs or any hallucinogen is strictly prohibited." It mandates drug testing for members...

    "They mirror a bit the sociological, anthropological logic of the Mafia," he said. "They seek to take justice into their own hands in a Mexico where no functional justice system exists."
