    I think I'd be too amazed to deny them anything not to mention I'd be frightened stiff, so I guess I'd do what ever they wanted. At the end of the day if I said no what would they do to me :o

    Well, perhaps I should ask it in a more gentler way...what if it was a culturally accepted part of a ritual to sacrifice to a God...would you do it?

    I'm of the opinion that my gods wouldn't ask me to do something so extreme unless they feel it is necessary. Since I can't "read their minds" I couldn't tell you what occassion would by their will necessitate such an act. However I would imagine it is something fairly extreme, since in the eight years I've been on my path it's never occured.

    Personally I would not pictre my God asking for a blood offering, but if it was asked of me I would give my own, probably with some hesitation.

    My blood sacrifice of preference would be donating blood to the blood bank. I see no need for any other form of the practice, personally.

    I wish I could say that no, I would not, but that's probably not true. If I'm part of a culture where ritual sacrifice is routine, then chances are that yes, I would participate as well, probably quite happily, and think nothing of it.

    For some reason, phrasing the question this way reminded me of pederasty. Compare the popular view of pederasty during ancient Greek times versus that of today.

    Honestly? All you did was agree with Morag and used some complementary adjectives. Wow. Well, if it helps. I would think I (or several others) would have gotten red before you. Maybe it was a mistake and they meant to give you green?

    I personally haven't gotten any red karma from this thread. But if anyone wants to give me my first, then this is a good thread for it. ^_^ j/k, really... ^_^

    Just out of curiousity, for those this applies to - if your God/dess deemed it necessary to sacrifice a human, would you do it?
